I’m going to be all chronological. Because it’s appropriate. How novel of me.
Brad and I have experimented with adding some rice into the diet. Pretty sure most of the carbs we eat have been coming from either sweet potatoes or cheat days. This stir fry recipe is from Practical Paleo. OMnomnom.
And lasagna is becoming a big staple. It’s super satisfying, but not exactly the epitome of a clean paleo diet. It’s got gluten-free lasagna sheets and grass fed cheese. It’s primal soul food? Maybe not the healthiest–what do you think? Does the paleo diet rob people of the appropriate macronutrient ratios?
Let’s talk Valentine’s Day!
Why don’t we eat seabass more often? OMG. yum.
My wonderful Valentine got us tickets to see Chicago at the WAC. I saw it when I was 12, but I can’t wait to see it again now that I’m old enough to follow the story and understand the adult humor :)
So yeah. Seabass. It wasn’t a huge cheat meal, but it definitely was a good pre-competition meal. Pre competition?! Yes! We went to Springfield, MO on Saturday for the 3rd annual Couples Challenge to benefit Cherish Kids. We competed against 17 other (badass) couples in the RX division. We did everything from heavy front squats to handstand walks. With a team “Jackie” workout, and a partner burpee extravaganza!
We ended up placing 13th–there was some VERY stiff competition. But it was a lot of fun :)
I have done a lot of crossfit competitions, and at almost every one of them I have encountered some standards sketchiness that left a bad taste in my mouth. I try to turn a blind eye, but the “bucking” hand stand walks that some teams did would have made Dave Castro ashamed. We might have come in 14th in that workout, but considering we could go exactly zero feet a month ago–going nearly 100 feet in that workout was a HUGE victory. And we both covered some of the longest distance we’ve ever covered! I intend to continue to work on this new skill ;)
