1. snacker – someone who eats lightly or eats snacks between meals
Confession: I don’t show all of the snacks I eat on Carrots ‘N’ Cake.
I try to photograph most of what goes into my mouth, but it’s not always possible. Sometimes my camera isn’t handy, sometimes I’m enjoying the moment and don’t want to ruin it with a photo, and sometimes I’m just lazy. So, what you see on CNC isn’t always everything I eat for the day, but I’m going to try to be better about snapping photos of my snacks. With that said…
Before heading to CrossFit last night, I snacked on a cranberry almond NRG Bar, which was leftover from Reach the Beach. I really like these bars. They’re soft and chewy with bold, not-artificial-tasting flavors, like cranberry almond and pumpkin ginger.
At first look, I was not psyched about last night’s workout, but I hadn’t been to CrossFit in almost a week, so I decided to go. Plus, Front Squats hurt my wrists and I suck at Cleans. Wah.
Front Squat: 3-3-3-3-3-3-3
Every minute on the minute for 12 minutes:
3 Clean and Jerks @80 % of 1RM
Obviously, I needed to go to this workout and work on my “goats.” In CrossFit, “goats” are your weaknesses in training. They’re the exercises that you dread because you’re not very good at them. Everyone has them—even Annie!
Not surprisingly (I swear this always happens with workouts like this), I ended up really liking last night’s workout. I managed to work my way up to 115 pounds for the Front Squats, which is a 50-pound (!!!) increase since January.
For the WOD, I used 65 pounds for the Clean and Jerks. I’m still working on my form for Cleans, so I didn’t kill myself with the weight, but it was definitely still a challenging workout!
After CrossFit, I came home, quickly showered, and then started on dinner. I was pretty hungry, so I snacked on a carrot while I prepared the roasted broccoli for dinner.
Last night’s dinner was an old favorite: Soy-Glazed Fish. I love this recipe—it’s easy to make, cooks in 10 minutes (or less), and tastes delicious.
I also added a small salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, truffle oil, and balsamic vinegar to my plate.
I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything this morning, so I toasted up a bagel and added whipped cream cheese to one half and almond butter to the other. Toaster oven = set it and forget it.
I also drank a glass of iced coffee with coconut milk.
