I have been a bit of a slacker when it comes to posting this week. Mainly because I am feeling under the weather. Tuesday was uneventful, I took a rest day and didn’t run or work out. Yesterday I did go to CrossFit after work and it was a killer work out.
3 x 10 strict press- I did 35lbs, 45lbs, and got to 6 reps of 55lbs
3 x 5 strict pull ups- I used the red band to start and switched to the blue one after the first round.
2 front squats + 1 push press
The 10-1 means, 10 the first round, then 9, then 8, etc. And then each round has the front squats and push press. I used 55 lbs for the workout and it was tough!! I still have to modify burpees so I basically do them on a box, so it’s like a push up on the box. My arms were feeling it! It took me 6:51 to complete the workout.
I felt great when I was done and when I got home, but as the night went on I started to develop some serious throat pain and I am feeling like a bit of a sicky. In other news, Tuesday was J’s birthday. I know this is incredibly out of order, but like I said, I am under the weather so bear with me. We celebrated his birthday on Monday night because he was out on Tuesday. So C and I got him a cake and she bought him a giant peanut butter cup as his gift. I know what I want for my birthday now too!
I have been making some yummy creations this week as well. Monday I did some meal prep and made these zucchini pancakes as breakfast food for the week. My sister sent me the recipe and they were delicious!
I also made a new chili recipe. It was a slow cooker chili made with Chicken and Quinoa. It turned out great! Check it.
It made great lunches for the week. Last night J made us sausage and peppers and that turned out so good. I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture of it. But trust me it looked great.
I will spend tonight relaxing and hoping to rest off this cold I am fighting. I don’t want to be sick for the weekend!
Have you tried any new recipes lately?
