What just happened? Holycrap. I started to blog. I made a draft and then totally forgot about it until now. Ha!
So… first things first, THE OPEN IS OVER!!! OMG. I am glad. The open is stressful. And it makes it worse that I am a borderline regional-team worthy athlete. Almost… just close enough that I would want to re-do all the WODs at least once to make sure I did my best. Just in case… Honestly, there are some amazing ladies ahead of me and I am super duper ridiculously excited to watch them bring it at Regionals this year. I think that every year it will become more and more difficult to compete in crossfit. Stiff competition, y’all! and (to my own demise) I am a very competitive person. What I am taking away from this year: a lot of things to work on. In particular–chest to bar pullups, muscle ups, and stringing heavy snatches together. Like STUPID heavy snatches. Instead of spending 2 minutes failing. Barf. That first workout was definitely the worst…
Let’s focus on happy things! I made my first meatza!
It was an exciting experience. I had to pour off about 1.5 cups of liquid after the “crust” was done baking. So if you decide to make it, then don’t be afraid to de-liquid it. There was nothing in the recipe about that happening.
It was suprisingly pizza-like. I don’t know why. The seasonings perhaps.
I highly recommend that meal for a day when you feel like you’ve been sucking at eating enough protein 🙂 Or just any time you want something ridiculously delicious on your plate. And it was actually super easy to put together!
So last week, I mention that I have started using the UFYH app. Special thanks to Jenn for introducing me to that BTW. But I did a “marathon” (a deep cleaning with no breaks for several hours) in my living/kitchen area. Here are the before and afters:
Yeah, I know. I am terrible for letting it get that bad. I didn’t realize how much of a difference it can make when things around you are more orderly. The only thing I really hate about it is that now the acoustics in that space sound like no one lives there. It’s all echoey and weird. I need to start painting on some of the billions of canvases I have. Soon. Only I haven’t painted in so long, I probably don’t remember how… erp. I’ll figure it out.
So that’s pretty much all I got for right now. I’ll leave you with this fantastic picture of my awesome dad:
