My attempts to bring out the best in me.

WOD and Recipes.


Today has been one of those days where I just really want a ‘redo’ button. I woke up late…couldn’t find my keys to save my life…had to use my spare…But somehow I still managed to make it to my client’s house bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Today was their first day…They may or may not hate me in the morning. Oops.

Then I went to work to get my own workout in. Today was Max Press, High Rep Handstand push ups, and then a 5 round metcon.

Looked like:

ME Push Jerk:
45x5x2, 65×5, 85×5, 95×3, 110×3 (PR!)
HR HSUP (one every :30 for 3 minutes), so six total. These were with feet positioned at a steep incline.

5 Rounds for Time
5 Ground to Overhead (65)
5 pull ups (banded)
5 squat cleans (65)
5 box jumps (no plyo boxes, used flat bench instead)

Splits: 1:31/1:32/1:36/1:50/1:35
Total working time: 7:24

This was tough. It was a lot of fun. The squat cleans were probably the hardest. Cleans still give me a hard time as far as getting the bar up high enough to receive it on my shoulders, but today’s felt a lot better and landed more where they should. Snatches were excellent. Really like that fluid movement.

Trained a client, got bummed that my 13yo client canceled on me (she had a cheerleading game), and then came home and got domestic.

Experimented with a primal egg muffin recipe thing.

Six eggs
2 tbsp greek yogurt
1 cup spinach
5oz roasted chicken breast
1/4c. shredded cheese (yeah yeah, primal violation)

Mix it all up, bake for 18-20 minutes. Haven’t tried them yet…but they look promising enough. We’ll see. 🙂
