Today is one of those days when I want to eat everything in sight and nothing seems to satisfy my hunger. I’m not sure what’s up with my suddenly ravenous appetite, but I’m just going with it. Sometimes, my body is hungry, and I need to FEED it!
I started my day with a big bowl of “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats with a scoop of peanut butter. I ended up going back for a second scoop because this breakfast is just so delicious with tons of nut butter!
After breakfast, Mal and I headed to CrossFit for our second workout in less than 24 hours. We went last night too because we’re brainwashed cult members.
WOD: “Butt Smoker”
Wall Balls (20, 14)
Kettlebell Swings (53, 36)
Simply put, this workout was ridiculous. In total, we did 300 Wall Balls (squats with a medicine ball that you throw 10 feet into the air and catch) and 300 Kettlebell swings. We did 100 Wall Balls followed by 100 Kettlebell swings, 80 Wall Balls followed by 80 Kettlebell swings, and then did the same thing for 60, 40, and 20. My goodness, I don’t think I’ll ever be the same after that workout.
I used a 10-pound medicine ball and a 20-pound kettlebell, which is much less than the prescribed weight from women, but the reps alone nearly killed me. It took my group just over 45 minutes to finish the WOD, so it was a serious endurance workout.
I was still hungry after eating these two snacks, so I made myself a whole wheat Sandwich Thin with sunflower butter and chia seeds on top.
A little while later, Mal and I headed out to run some errands and go grocery shopping for the week. During our travels, we made a pit-stop for lunch at Chipotle. I wasn’t super hungry after eating all of those snacks, so I ordered a chicken burrito and only ate half of it.
In the mix: chicken, black beans, guacamole, peppers, tomatoes, salsa, and hot sauce.
When we got home from our errands, I was hungry again, so I sliced up a banana and put it in a mug along with a massive scoop of almond butter.
You’d think the ol’ nut butter + banana would do the trick, but, just now, I chowed down a KIND Bar. I think I’ll be able to make it until dinner now. I hope!
Off to make Spinach Dip for the Pats game! Mal and I (and Murphy) are going to our friends’ house for the game tonight. Go Pats!
P.S. For those of you who asked for my Maple Scone recipe, here it is!
