Since I’m being lazy and have pictures of most of what I ate on Monday, I figured I’d just do a WIAMonday and WID(id)Monday.
6:45am: Woke up and laid in bed, hoping to fall back to sleep.
8:00: Jon left for work. I was hopeful of going back to sleep still.
9:30: Nope. Not happening. Got up and ate 2 scrambled eggs and a glass of Organic Wallaby blueberry kefir (no pictures, sorry). Started some laundry, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, and looked at ClassPass.
11:00: Got dressed and brushed my teeth.
11:15: Headed downtown to The Training Room for a FitCamp class.
12:00: Class for an hour. This was essentially the exact same as CrossFit, despite the coach telling me that it’s different than CrossFit and is more of a personal training type of thing. Well, in almost 6 years of CrossFit, I can say that this was a CrossFit gym without having to pay the affiliate fees. Smart. They did also have a personal training area in the back, which is nice. I fell in love again with HIIT and was able to do 135# deadlifts with no pain. I didn’t push it any further, but I think I’d have been fine to go up in weight. We basically did 6 minutes of abs, 2 deadlifts (mine at 135#) every 2 minutes for 4 rounds, and then a 20 minute AMRAP of 10 deadlifts (85#), 15 box jumps, 20 knees to elbows, and 30 plank rows. I made it for 4 rounds and 35 reps. It felt fantastic and now I’m considering if I really want to even keep up with ClassPass or just head back to CrossFit and work with my hip there.
1:00: Left gym and headed to Costco for 2 dozen organic eggs, organic plant based protein powder, organic bananas, and organic medjool dates (so easy to go organic at Costco).
2:30: Came home to throw together some post-gym food and switch over some laundry. I decided to count the protein in my meal- 35-40g of protein. I was too lazy to count anything else but was curious for a minute. (Pancakes made with 2 eggs, 1/2 banana, 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder, a tablespoon-ish of cocoa powder- made 4, but I saved 2 for later.) I should have turned my plate the other way and I would have had a smiley face.
3:30: Went to Whole Foods for some steaks, raspberries, arugula, frozen hashbrowns/fries (also all organic- look at me go), kefir, cream cheese, bacon, and sour cream.
4:45: Got home. Long drive thanks to traffic. Switched over some laundry and started making some bacon wrapped dates filled with cream cheese. Ate 5 of them upon completion. So. Stinking. Good.
5:15: Started working on taxes. Decided that I hate my life and wondered how I ended up being the one who has to take care of taxes in our family. And paying bills. And grocery shopping. And managing money. And cleaning the house.
6:15: Finally took a shower. Admired my legs that are finally getting some muscle back in them, even if it’s not much. Also admired some abs since I feel like I’ve been doing more ab work lately.
6:45: Jon came home and I cleaned up the kitchen some more and prepped some meals for work for Tuesday and Wednesday.
7:15: Started looking at houses on Trulia.
8:00: BACHELOR! (How did I even get into this show?) I drank a large smoothie made with 1/2 banana, arugula, frozen mixed berries, and carrot juice.
10:00: Spent some time with Jon.
10:30: Got ready for bed.
10:50: Read the end of Wild. Good book. Everybody should read it and then go hike the PCT with me.
11:15: Went to bed and cuddled with Kitty till I fell asleep.
