LuRong Paleo Challenge

So, since I can’t do the actual LuRong Challenge, I will be holding myself accountable to the diet part only (been working on this sine Monday). Don’t worry–I took “before” pictures. I might actually share them if this challenge yields any visible results. I’m usually pretty strict during the week, so this isn’t that hard….yet. Except the part where I eat dinner and then skip fruit/dessert. That is for the birds.

I got this salad at Fresh Market. Super tasty!20120919-100233.jpgI guess I cheated since it had feta cheese… just realized that. Fail.

I made curry again (the kind I posted about not too long ago). And put it on top of PaleOMG’s coconut cauliflower rice.

This is definitely becoming a staple in my kitchen. It’s easy and quick(ish).

I got some new nanos!!! 20120919-100304.jpg

WHAT? Why did I buy new nanos when I am really in dire need of OLY shoes?!? Oh, because they were $60 from a lovely lady on facebook. OH ok, then proceed.

Yesterday I woke up at 4:30 AM to see the lululemon upload. There were some brand new speed shorts, but I wear size 8 and they were long gone 😦



Well, maybe not “long” gone. But gone nonetheless.

I took a picture of the sky because it reminded me of the opening credits in Wizard of Oz.

I think it’s pretty cool that Toto played himself.

So yesterday’s crossfit WOD was straight up redonk. But I finished it somehow. Here it is:

run 800M

5 bar muscle ups (I used a pretty thick band….)

7 muscle ups (I subbed blue banded ring dips and pullups)

run 800M

7 rope climbs <–YES, I did them all!!!

run 800M

40 GHD sit ups

run 800M

100 Double Unders

I finished it in 35:15. I am rather content with that because my rope climbs are super sloppy and I waste lots of energy. That part took me at least 10 minutes, I’m sure. No joke, my arms were all locked up and cramping by the time I was done with those climbs. I even had a panic attack on the first rope climb: I went up to the top, lost my footing, acted like a baby, regained my footing, and came back down. I need a “most improved award” for not being super dramatic about finishing the climbs. Then I was really happy with my double unders. I might have slightly sandbagged the running because I wanted to be able to have power and focus for the finish. Once I got started, I only had to break it into 4 sections. WIN. Some kid I had never seen before was sitting on a box nearby watching me. He nodded in approval.

    what is the lululemon upload? do they put their new merch online at a certain time?

    i’ll be driving through Arkansas next week! But not near you.

    are those shoes previously worn? haha.

      Haha–I assume everyone else is obsessed with lulu as much as I am. They upload new stuff at 2:30AM central on Tuesday mornings.

      The shoes were worn one time. They are in excellent condition. That is, until I wear them a few more times 🙂

        do they even have men’s clothes? I’m pretty cheap when it comes to workout clothes….

        that’s not bad then. don’t destroy em too fast! I love my inov-8’s. they need to see some more work though. right now they’re lonely in my car.

        Yes! Lulu is pricey but very quality stuff. And it fits well and performs well–you should splurge on a piece sometime( –I’m an enabler)!!!! my inov8s have fallen to the back burner because of my nanos…. Also, they make my plantar fasciitis flare up 😦

      • robfiasco @ run2thehills September 20, 2012 / 10:40 am

        yeah, i googled plantar fasciitis. that doesn’t sound fun. i can see why you made the switch. an enabler eh? that’s trouble. i’ll keep away from the website just in case there’s a chance I could like something.
