It’s absolutely gorgeous outside. Looks almost as if it’s spring but with snow on the ground. We got another 4″ yesterday. Normally I would be moaning about it but like I said the last time we got snow, what’s another 4″ on top of 3 feet?
Yesterday I was supposed to go try out the Yoga Swing at my box but the hubs got called into work. No skin off my nose; I took B and went to Mommy and Me Boot camp instead. Another sweaty class with a great turnout! B isn’t exactly crawling yet but when he was watching all of us moving around, you could see in his eyes that he was taking it all in. He’ll be a proficient crawler before long. At that point, I’m going to wish he’d slow down I’m sure.
Then I had to do what pretty much every mother in the history of mothers had to do….drive aimlessly so our child stays asleep. I was on the way to the store when he passed out cold in the back seat. Silver lining? I saw some nearby towns that I had never seen before and they are cute! Rolling hills, fresh powder, cute cabins….didn’t even know it existed!
My husband is making an effort to eat healthier which I applaud him for. And I will do everything in my power to help him as he would do the same for me. So I decided to make him a homemade pizza since he tends to order it 3 times a week, minimum. I have to say, the pizza was AMAZING but it was way too thick. Lesson learned.
I got some raw dough from the store then topped with:
nothing-fancy pizza sauce
raw green peppers
raw sliced mushrooms (only on half)
cooked 80/20 ground beef
shredded moz cheese
topped with oregano
Baked at 400* for about 20 minutes or until the crust was done and cheese was melted. It was “don’t-talk-to-me” good.
Next time, I’ll use half the dough and cook on a pizza stone.
I had every intention of running before CrossFit today because like I said, it’s gorgeous out today. I was almost to daycare when I got text asking if I bring B an hour late so they could shovel snow. She is super flexible with me so I wanted to reciprocate. Sure, no problem. That meant B was coming to CrossFit with me!
He hasn’t come with me in months and for good reason. One, he is a little more mobile and two, he wants my undivided attention. So I decided to work him into my WOD best I could, safely. Stretching was no big deal. He just sat there and took it all in. then an angel in Lululemon pants offered to watch B while I did a little liting.
5 sets of 3 overhead squats (every 2 minutes) with a 2 second pause at the bottom. I climbed to 115#. Not bad Mamma 🙂
Our angel had to get ready for work so I decided that B was going to be my WOD.
5 rounds for time of:
10 squats holding my giggling squirming happy baby
Finished in 5:25
Then I came home and saw this. Lord grant me strength…..
I used to be a great multi-tasker. I need to accept the fact that I am not anymore. Every damn time I leave the room while cooking, my food gets ruined. Why you ask? Because something always grabs my attention and I lose track of time. Whether it be emails from work, an overflowing hamper, a smelly diaper that needs to go outside, dried up dog pee…..
So today I overcooked my hard boiled eggs in the oven.
As I am attempting to work, I have way too much energy and it’s irritating. The solution? TABATA in my office!
TABATA (20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest for 8 rounds)
kettlebell swings 40#
Much better! (for now)
