Hey there!

I can’t believe I am leaving for California tomorrow morning for the CrossFit Games. I AM SO PSYCHED!! In preparation, I spent some time this morning compiling a bunch of questions to ask the athletes””of course, if I have a chance to speak with any of them. I know they’re going to be plenty busy competing, so I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but you never know! Imagine if I had the opportunity to chat with Annie… or Rich Froning!? OMG, I would die. GNC also said they’d try to hook us up with their sponsored athletes, so I want to make sure I am prepared with questions.

Here are the questions I’ve put together so far:

  • How did you discover CrossFit?
  • What are you looking forward to the most about the Games?
  • What do you like best about competing?
  • What aspect of the Games do you find most challenging?
  • What did you do to prepare for the Games?
  • What motivates you?
  • What’s your favorite benchmark workout?
  • What achievement are you most proud of?
  • What advice would you give someone who wants to try CrossFit for the first time?
  • What does your supplementation/nutrition program consist of?
  • Do you have a favorite pre-competition meal?

AHHH! I seriously cannot wait for the Games!

Ok, time for some eats!

Dinner

While cooking dinner last night, I snacked on some Pretzel Crisps.

Dinner was taco salads made with ground beef, homemade taco seasoning, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and salsa.

Simple and delicious.

Breakfast

This morning, I woke up craving My Favorite Breakfast Pancake, but we were out of nut butter (the horror!!!), so I used sunflower butter in the mix. It worked out well!

I topped my pancake with blackberries and a big scoop of sunflower butter.

  1. Have fun at the games!! I wish I was going! I am in awe of all of the athletes. As for questions, I would love to ask them about their nutrition (similar to your question): do they follow a particular diet, such as Paleo or the Zone? What do they eat a few days prior to competition, on game day and then post-workout?

  2. ANnie and I went to school together, actually we’re classmates. 🙂 she’s a sweetheart, but she has always been very athletic and focused. If you get to talk to her, ask her about chocolate, she loves talking about it, lol 🙂

  3. I actually just found out that a guy I went to school with since Elementary School is competing in the games, Chase Daniels. Pretty crazy!
