Hi!!! OMG! So happy it;s Thursday!
It’s been a fast-moving week this week, though. And I’m certainly glad that it’s the last week of the CrossFit Open–ready to be finished with all of that mess. 13.5 was annoinced last night–for most of the crossfit population, this workout will only take 4 minutes to complete. 4 minutes of grinding out 15/15 thrusters and chest to bar pull-ups. For the open, pull-ups have to be chest to bar because anything else is too difficult to judge properly. Too much gray area, so they tighten that up to chest-to-bars and there you go. Not much to argue with there. I tried it last night and completed 69 reps. Considering I can’t string C2B pullups together, that is pretty dang good. I’ll do it again on Saturday and/or Sunday, but I’m pretty content with that score, personally.
Brad and I made paleOMG biscuits and gravy. Only it was mainly me making that while he made the sides, so it kinda turned out weird.
The gravy totally burned so it was all brown. And it was wayyyyyy liquidy. It’s like the coconut flour did nothing to thicken it up. Whatever. it still tasted okay, but pale gravy–we’re not finished yet. I WILL conquer you! Dangit!
But, yeah. If you have never made her sweet potato biscuits then you need to do that ASAP. There are a couple different versions, but having shrimp in there was DIVINE. (Although rarely eat shrimp bc of my bizzare allergy to it).
They only cost about $3.50 to make. Super cheap and satisfying.
Have you ever heard of Unfuck You Habitat?
(Sorry about the profanity, I’m normally not spouting out certain words, but it’s just part of this app’s personality, lol)
You can go to it for inspiration to clean your house and it sets a timer for 20 minutes of work with 10 minute breaks to get you stay motivated and clean up your disgusting apartment. My apartment is disgusting? Why, yes. Yes it is. So I have started using it. I used it last night to start uhf*cking my bathroom. It told me to throw away all the stuff in the cabinets that is expired or gross. So I did two drawers. You have to start somewhere, I guess. I also made some awesome to-do lists. If I chip away at this daily then I am pretty sure that I’ll have a shiny, happy apartment by the end of the month.
I feel like I never completely moved into my “habitat” anyways. I have lived there for two years and I have nothing hanging on the walls and my pantry has way more junk in it than it does food. And by “junk” I don’t mean twinkies and lollipops. I mean camping equipment, old pictures, a jewelry box, craft stuff, and who knows what else… I’ll have to take some before and after photos this weekend 🙂
