What?? I have a blog?! Holycrap, I forgot.
Happy New Year, I’ve been busy…. I spent my new year’s even in Little Rock with my college roomies. Those girls are awesome. They made great company for me while I binge-ate tons of junk to prepare myself for the whole30 that I have started today. That was a stupid strategy…. Enjoy some photography:
Black Rock Bottom cupcakes at Cupakes on Kavanaugh.
Brandy and I made chocolate pound cake cupcakes with salted carmel cream cheese frosting. I’m pretty sure I singlehandedly ate at least 7 of them.
We also made cranberry salsa, stuffed mushrooms, and bought a frozen baked brie.
We ate at lots of places. One was a burger joint in the new outdoor mall on Chenal called Big Orange.
Mine was a truffle oil burger with arugula and some sort of fancy cheese I forgot the name of. Those sweet potato waffle fries come with curry mango ketchup. Just sayin’.
For dessert we split a white chocolate pistachio shake. So now I have muffin tops. I can’t help it.
In light of the WHOLE30 I’m about to begin, here was my last meal:
And for some reason I sat at home by myself and chugged the whole bottle. That sounds really depressing…
At least I’m stocked up on eggs…
GOOD NEWS: I FINISHED THAT STUPID PUSHUP CHALLENGE!!! And I even managed to finish it a couple days early so that I didn’t have to do it in Little Rock.
I went with Trip to Crossfit Little Rock on New Year’s Eve and we did this WOD:
Increasing thrusters 1-10 with 1 round of Cindy between. So it goes:
1 thruster, 1 round of Cindy.
2 thrusters, 1 round of Cindy.
3 thrusters, 1 round of Cindy.
etc. all the way to 10 thrusters.
I did some of the Cindy rounds unbroken (A round of Cindy is 5 pullups, 10 pushups, 15 air squats) I was SHOCKED by how much easier the pushups are.The whole thing took me 19:32. Now if only I could learn to feel that way about hand stand push-ups, pull ups, ring dips, and right-legged pistols. I can do left legged pistols all day, but the right leg? Forget it!
As I mentioned earlier, I am starting a whole30 today. I haven’t actually had time to sit down and plan yet, but I have every intention of being highly successful. I’m going to take a before picture tonight. Do I have the balls to share that on this blog? I’m not sure… depends on how gross it is. I just ate two clementines and some roasted unsalted almonds. Breakfast of champions? I doubt it. I need to get better at breakfast.
What are your goals this year??? Here are some of mine:
- learn to do pistols on BOTH legs
- string 15+ pullups together
- Do a bar muscle up
- Do a ring muscle up, actually.
- Snatch 140#
- Place in the top 3 at Raid the Rock
- Make my apartment cute
- Save more money
- Do hand stand pushups RX (no mat!)
