Hogeye Relay!

I am sooo backed up! (Ew, not literally. You’re gross.) I keep meaning to write blog entries and then not doing it because I get all sidetracked with other things.

Somehow I got to be in charge of dinner the other day. I really wanted to make these salmon and avocado deviled eggs from my new PaleOMG cookbook. (YES! I got her cookbook and highly recommend it!) Perfect for cooking while watching movies on your computer. That way you dont have to pause it to look at the recipe 🙂 I know, I know.  You’re welcome.

And since I had no idea what else to fix, I decided to throw some paleo panckaes together.

It was a strange combo, but I have no complaints.

The next day we had this ridiculously cheesy pizza hut pizza for dinner:

This is going to sound completely insane and make no sense at all, but so far every time I’ve eaten a big greasy pizza for dinner I wake up the next day feeling super lean and toned. It makes absolutely no sense at all… but I swear it happens. And I’m up for experimenting and doing it again… for science.

My usual rutabaga egg nests:

I’m just gonna keep eating them ’til I get tired of it. Still hasn’t happened yet.

I went to bliss cupcake cafe after lunch with mom and got this banana pudding cupcake:

I have been super full of cheats, but that’s becuase I was planning on starting to eat Zone today…. I’m really not ready but I am going to attempt it anyways.

THE HOGEYE RELAY!

Kate, Sharon, Mindi and I ran the Hogeye Relay this weekend!

Special thanks to Corrie, who rode in our shuttle to cheer us all on. She was supposed to do the half, but couldn’t because of IT Band sydrome. I seriously hate that! Everyone who runs seems to have that happen to them and it stinks!!!

 It was really fun. It always is–I have done that relay four times now. Always lots of epic tales to go along with each experience. One year I arrived there too late to meet the first leg relay teammate after scraping my head the night before. I got back to my dorm to find the fourth leg still asleep in bed! lol. One year we experienced a torrential downpour at the finish line. This year one of my teammates blacked out right before her relay exchange. Crazy things happening, man.

Afterwards Brad and I went to crossfit and did this crazy WOD:

2 squat cleans 185/125

10 T2B (toes to bar)

10 HSPU (hand stand push-up)

2 Squat Cleans

9 T2B

9 HSPU

2 Squat Cleans

8…. all the way to 1 T2B and 1 HSPU

 

I got to enjoy a fantastic post-race and post-WOD meal with Brad:

I wish I could eat 5 lbs of his sweet potato hashbrowns.

He created this sautéed berry magic and dumped it onto sliced kiwis:

Alright. It’s way too close to lunchtime for me to be gawking at all these food pictures. Happy Monday!!!

    I heard a couple people doing the whole carb backloading thing that said the same thing about the morning after.. I don’t know enough about it to do it the “right” way, but sounds pretty awesome.. lol.

    Crap, that Zone thing was supposed to start today.. oops.. I did buy a food scale and practiced measuring out chicken.. but that’s about all I got..

      Haha, that is still further than I got! I think the hard thing about zone will be keeping food simple. I like to jazz up everything with extra stuffs that make it have way too much fat. And carbs…
