My morning started out beautifully. I slept until 8 a.m. Wednesdays are usually the only day of the work week that I don’t have to be at the gym super early so I take advantage.
I’ll do a little WIAW today since I’m focusing on clean eating this week.
Things took a slight downturn when I stopped for coffee and a smoothie on my way into work and was served what may be the worst smoothie of my life. It was supposed to be “Berry Green” with banana, strawberry, apple juice and spirulina. I cannot stomach apple juice so I asked for a substitute. The girl making my smoothie added cranberry juice instead and upon first sip I puckered up. It was crazy tart! I ended up taking it into work and doctoring it up in the Vitamix. I added more banana, almond milk, more ice and peanut butter. It was only tolerable after that. Oh well…
I had to cover the front desk for a few hours when I got to they gym. I have been thinking it would be fun to do a “day in the life” post son of what it’s like to manage a gym and CrossFit box. Sound interesting?
Lunch was redeeming. As much random thing I could put in a bowl as possible that would remotely complement each other. It worked well, tasted good and kept me satisfied.
I taught and then took CrossFit tonight. I was so excited about today’s WOD. Like I’ve mentioned before, I love longer endurance WODs with running and bodyweight movements. I felt so good during this workout and finished in around 17:50. I have this sick love for push ups so I plowed through those unbroken every round and also managed to do the kettlebell swings unbroken. The knees to elbow were definitely the hardest part for me. My forearms and abs were burning and I had to break those into sets of 3-5.
I actually had time to make a real dinner when I got home tonight. I made Greek turkey patties topped with with sauteed chard and garlic. I used this old recipe from my food blog for the turkey but used goat gouda in lieu of the feta. I think I have decided that I prefer ground chicken over ground turkey but this was an easy and good dinner.
*Edited to add…someone asked about snacks. I totally forgot as I never take pictures of that kind of stuff anymore. Yes, I do snack. No morning snack because I didn’t get my smoothie until almost 10 a.m. I had a Coconut Cream Pie Larabar before CrossFit and snacked while I was making dinner because I was starving!
While we are on the subject of dinner. I went out with a friend for sushi last night and got this beautiful tuna, crab and avocado roll wrapped in cucumber. Have you ever tried sushi wrapped in cucumber instead of rice? It’s really good and not nearly as filling.
Time to plan for my clients tomorrow. I have three PT sessions and one yoga private on top of normal daily GM responsibilities. I am also teaching BodyPump and coaching a CrossFit class. It’s going to be a very busy day!
