Hi, friends! How’s it going? It’s time for another Monday In Meals post where I recap a day of my meals and snacks from, well, Monday. After some Sunday food prep, I tend to eat healthier at the beginning of the week, so I figured my eats might be good inspiration. Plus, CNC started out as a food journal, so it’s fun to take her back to her roots sometimes. And without further ado, here’s the next edition…

(I guarantee this post title will make Theodora laugh!) After CrossFit yesterday, Mal and I felt really lazy. I don’t know if it was all of those heavy kettlebell swings or what, but neither of us felt like putting in any effort to make lunch, even though we were both starving, so I suggested going out to eat. As soon as the words left my mouth, Mal’s face lit up. I guess we were on…

Does my post title remind anyone of the song “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake? [image source] Ok, then”¦ Workout After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. I was super sore from doing “Barbara” the day before, but a friend was making her big return to 781 and I really wanted to welcome her back and, of course, get our WOD on together, so I sucked it up and went. Yesterday’s workout…

Would you rather be really fast or really strong? I’ll let you think about it while I recap my eats from yesterday. How’s that sound? Breakfast My day started with a French Toast Breakfast Scramble in a jar (FTBSIAJ) with extra Teddie peanut butter. Even though there’s peanut butter on the sides and bottom of the jar, I always add more. Not joking, I probably eat 4-5 tablespoons (2-3 big scoops) of nut butter every…

Last night’s dinner was de-lic-ious! And it was SO easy to make! Ok, well, everything you see on CNC is easy to make, but this recipe was especially easy. And delicious! Did I say that already? Ok, you really should just make it!  😉 Ingredients: 3 chicken breasts (~1.5 lbs) 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 tsp garlic powder 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 2 tbsp minced…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! He who is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else. Workout It’s funny”¦ the workouts I’m not psyched about doing at CrossFit always end up being my favorites, which is exactly what happened last night. I’m not a fan of Squat Cleans. They actually might be my least favorite exercise because they’re really hard and my quads burn like a mofo when I do them. So when…

I woke up yesterday morning with the plan of having a lazy Sunday. I ate Eggnog Pancakes in my PJs and then lingered around the house drinking Marylou’s Milky Way iced coffee. Eventually, Mal and I motivated ourselves to take Murphy to the dog park for a “nature walk.” Lunch After the park, we came home and made lunch, which was toasted ham and cheese wraps. And some holiday M&Ms. I ate the handful below X…
