I’m loving my box’s Quote of the Week:
Great, right? It’s a little (big?) something to think about on this fine Thursday.
I woke up craving peanut butter this morning, so I made a French Toast Breakfast Scramble and loaded it up with a huge scoop of Teddie and then went back for a second scoop a little while later. Yay, peanut butter!
I also drank a glass of iced Dandy Blend with organic half & half.
I guess I went a little heavy on the half & half because when Mal saw my glass, he asked if was an “extra extra” aka coffee with extra cream and extra sugar. (Is that a South Shore thing?)
After breakfast, I went to CrossFit. I was planning to take a yoga class today, but a surprise WOD motivated me to go. Our only hint was “it’s not Fran,” so I figured it’d probably be a good one and, obviously, I was super curious!
(hint: it’s not Fran)
The WOD was “Jerry,” which was a 1 mile run + 2,000 meter row + 1 mile run. Fun times indeed! Actually, the row and second mile were absolutely brutal (my quads were on fire!), but it doesn’t have to be fun to be fun, right?
My friend (and best/favorite competitor) Kerrie was in class today (we actually planned to go to the 9:00 AM class together last night), so I tried to keep up with her during the WOD. We were neck-in-neck on the first mile (we both finished around 6:30!), but for some reason, during the row, I thought we only had to do 1,000 meters, so I stopped and took my feet out of the straps, thinking I was finished. I was about to get up and run the final mile, but then someone reminded me it was 2,000 meters. Crap. Brain frat. I was only half done! Kerrie finished the row and took off on the last mile. I tried to catch up to her, but she finished the WOD more than a minute before me. Even still, I know trying to “compete” with her made me a much faster runner today. I finished in 24:21. P.S. Kerrie is frickin’ FAST!
After CrossFit, I ran some errands around town and then came home to make lunch. I ate reheated leftovers from the previous night’s dinner. They were good, but nothing too special about them.
I spent the next few hours working and then headed out to get a manicure at Allure Spa.
My brother-in-law gave me a gift card to Allure Spa for Christmas last year, and I’m still working on spending it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
I ended up splurging and going with a Shellac manicure today. I’ve had them in the past, but they never last more than 5 or 6 days for me. I told the manicurist I’m pretty rough with my hands, but she insisted it would last for at least 2 weeks. We shall see.
