So...I haven't been round these parts in months! Some I'll attribute to moving, new job, new state, new friends, new boy...etc. Some is just laziness, though. I've been tracking cals on myfitnesspal (I like how it works on my phone much more tha... Read more
umm, yikes. The first day that I showed after on-ramp was, surprise, a qualifying workout for the 2011 Crossfit Games. (no. 4, for those following the games). So...it wasn't the easiest day ever. 20 min, as many rounds as possible, 5 power clean... Read more
Long time no blog...In short, I'm struggling with my nutrition (cals are fine, but carbs remain out of control, and way more faileo than paleo) but rocking the fitness. Trying to buy a bike (some car problems have made this, ironically, diffi... Read more
1) traveling, again. It's my middle name this year. But it is almost over, and actually I'm in DC which is my favorite place to travel. And since I'm here a couple months I get to settle in a bit.
2) MOVING. Just south of the Mason-Dixon, i... Read more
Well, it is after 4 and my 'paleo-lite' day is perfect so far, a rarity for me. Yay.
I'm blogging to figure out a little opportunity that has come my way. At the end of the month, a local veterans group is holding a half-murph crossfit work... Read more
ehh, since my diet is starting to look more like BB's receptionist's version of paleo than Wolf or Cordain's, I am going to have to shake things up. Basically, I'd say I did a day of (ALMOST) clean eating, without grains. But only one meat meal ... Read more
Should still post my final food tonight, hence part a. I have been pretty tired all day, not to mention a bit faint feeling. And I want a big wheat bagel like a motherfckr. It is taking all my willpower to resist!
I'm not sure if it is pale... Read more
First, sneak peak at the next p90x, the workout they call "plyocide." I wonder if they'll be selling boxes for box jumps? Kinda dangerous to improvise, but who wants to buy a box? yfrog.com/h2a4guyj
Also, a little video (y... Read more
First, I want to say I just started tweeting and would love to follow and spark people I follow here...It is my third time trying it but only now do I find it fun :) www.twitter.com/rachelca nttweet
Okay, now on to the... Read more
I've been struggling. I was going increasingly paleo (I know, be skeptical...I'm too tired to explain why I became open to it right now, but I will post about that if stuff ever calms down). I got back from one trip where I was eating really wel... Read more
Well, almost. My swimsuit (had for a few years) is (1) too big and (2) a 'fashion' one piece, designed for lounging and splashing, not swimming. It is really low cut, and on more than one occasion lap swimming today I almost had Janet Jackson sl... Read more
I schelped it to a trader joes to get the healthiest hotel food I could for my dime. Here's what I got:
- some of the 'fiberful' bars GL was pimping
- builders bars and 'promax' bars (haven't tried the promax before)
- mine a chili mixe... Read more
1) did crossfit this am, and even w/ not being able to do deadlift b/c of my back, and w/the getting up at 6am, I loved it
2) I am in a hote for almost 2 weeks, and have no microwave or fridge. Great. How do I eat healthy, get any protein, ... Read more
I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it.
Off to Boston on Monday for appx 2 weeks of work. I'll sadly get even more behind in kickboxing, and the instructor wants us sparring (with coaches) by early March. Besides not getting practice in, ... Read more
