Hot day here! Mal and I were supposed to go to the beach with some of our friends after CrossFit this morning, but they called us mid-morning to say that the parking lot was totally full and the traffic getting there was absolutely infuriating. Boo. So, instead of sitting in a hot car stuck in traffic for hours, we decided to stay home instead. It’s been a pretty low-key day around here.
I woke up kind of late this morning, so I threw together a quick breakfast “quesadilla” with almond butter, banana slices, raisins, and chia seeds on a whole wheat wrap.
To drink: Marylou’s Chocolate Cupcake iced coffee! Oooooh, yes!
It turns out that our coffeemaker wasn’t dirty after all. I tried the white vinegar thing, but our iced coffee still tasted like ass. I guess the coffee went bad or something, so Mal bought this bag from Marylou’s when he was there yesterday.
This flavor is absolutely delicious””I definitely taste chocolate cupcake!
After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. Mal was teaching class again!
Today’s WOD was really laid-back since it wasn’t timed. Plus, the only equipment we used was two kettlebells (and our body weight). I thought it would be a good workout to post on CNC since you can easily do it at home or at the gym. If you don’t have kettlebells, you can use two dumbbells.
Rest 10-20 seconds between each exercise. Rest 1 minute after all four exercises. Use a weight you can perform 10 reps with. This WOD is NOT for time. Take your time and get the most out of each circuit.
When I got home from CrossFit, I housed a bunch of almonds.
Once I showered and got dressed, I threw together a couple of “garbage salads” for Mal and me. In the mix: mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots, hardboiled eggs, avocado, pickles, cottage cheese, balsamic vinegar, and truffle oil.
I don’t know if it was the heat or what, but, a little while later, I wanted something cold and creamy to eat, so I snagged a few bites of Oikos Honey Frozen Yogurt that my friends from Stonyfield sent to me last week. Delish! It’s more vanilla froyo with honey swirled in than straight up honey froyo.
Question of the Day
Would you rather be stuck in super hot weather or super cold weather?
In the past, I would have said super hot weather, but I’m slowly starting to appreciate the cold weather, especially for things like running. Running in super hot weather is torture for me, but cold temps don’t bother me as much””I always warm up!
