Free Cone Day!

Guess what today was?

Free cone day at Ben & Jerry’s! Wahoo!

Guess who went through the line twice? Round one was a scoop of Strawberry Cheesecake and round two was the most amazing peanut butter ice cream called “What A Cluster” –Β Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Caramel Cluster Pieces, Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Swirls. Mmm!!!

And then due to poor planning just 30 minutes later I did the 5:30 p.m. CrossFit WOD at the gym. Luckily, our amazing CrossFit director, Sean, was there to keep me in the game.

The first set of 50 burpees nearly did me in but I powered through. It was an awesome workout and this is one you can do at home! Do it and let me know how it goes. I predict you will be dripping in sweat. πŸ˜‰

I did eat some real food today. Breakfast after an early morning ashtanga practice was a big bowl of oatmeal with bananas and blackberries.

We had a work lunch at Cantina 1511. I was greeted by a bowl of chips bigger than my head and salsa.

I balanced out the chips by ordering the Mexican Chopped Salad with salmon. This is one of my favorite salads in Charlotte. Chopped romaine, roasted corn, cucumbers, jicama, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, avocado and cojita cheese.

Now I have to figure out what I’m in the mood for for dinner. It’s been a really random day of eats.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?Β

    Either Bonnaroo Buzz by Ben & Jerry’s or Turtle from Carvel πŸ™‚

    I also discovered today that Keebler makes cookies that are identical to Girl Scout Samoas. Theyre called Coconut Dreams and I got them at A&P (I’m in Connecticut).

    My life is now complete.

    Oh yum, I love What a Cluster! But you can’t go wrong with peanut butter. πŸ™‚

    My all time favorite though is mint chocolate chip.

    I appreciate that you went through the line twice, a girl after my own heart.

    I have a half this weekend and next week I am finally trying Crossfit. I love seeing your workouts and am excited to try this kind of training.

    From Ben and Jerry’s, I’m all about the oatmeal cookie crunch! You MUST try it. AMAZING.

    But in general, I like ice cream that does the sweet and salty thing. I live in Ohio so we have two amazing ice cream places: Graeter’s and Jenni’s. Check out Jenni’s Ice cream on the web…. they have the coolest flavors. I like their Salty Caramel and Reisling Poached Pear flavors mmmmm
