Happy Saturday morning! I’m up bright and early getting ready to head off to day one of my weekend CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Course. It should be a very interesting day, to say the least!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a “day of meals/eats” with you and you’ll soon see why. I haven’t been to the store since I arrived home from the beach so it’s been a lot of grabbing something out and desperation meals from the pantry/freezer.
Case in point…Friday breakfast was an egg and cheese bagel after yoga.
Lunch was black bean and corn enchiladas from Trader Joe’s that I got out of the freezer. I did finally pick up an avocado and a few other staples to hold me over. I had to use plain Greek yogurt in lieu of sour cream because I opened my sour cream and it was moldy. The expiration date isn’t until November so I was annoyed. I have had a big issue with Trader Joe’s brand dairy/ready-made stuff being moldy lately. I’m going to take it back.
I spent the afternoon/early evening studying for my CrossFit exam and cake baking before heading out to a birthday party! I made my dinner out of Mexican cheesecake, buffalo chicken dip and other various delicious and sinful appetizers.
Including this beautiful antipasto platter. I was obsessed with the presentation and all of the things included. Is this not the most perfect impressive yet relatively easy thing to bring to a party?
Then it was time to sing to the birthday girl. Votives in place of candles…it works! She requested “chocolate!” when I asked her cake preference so chocolate I delivered. Dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and chocolate cream cheese icing. Thanks to all of you who weighed in on Facebook regarding what type of frosting to go with. The chocolate cream cheese was perfect (and trust me, I sampled enough of it while I was frosting the cake to know). Go big or go home, right?
It was such a fun evening. I’m just sad I had to head home early to prepare for my big weekend. Here goes nothing. Pray I not only survive this but also pass the exam tomorrow. It’s supposed to be really hard! Yikes. Oh and I have to do “Fran” for the first time ever today so I’m expecting to truly feel like I’m dying by the end of that. How I’ve managed to CrossFit for as long as I have and avoid Fran is beyond me.
Here we go!
