Yeah. This post is going to be about all of the food that I haven’t had a chance to talk about. I’m the worst blogger ever… not sure what my excuse is, really, but whatever. So when I first got back from Chicago my amazingly talented boyfriend had been marinating a lamb rack. He seared it and baked it and welcomed me home with it! Alongside spinach, cauliflower mash, and sweet potato fries:
We made a wing recipe from Practical Paleo. Pinapple Teriyaki wings with garlic Aioli dipping sauuce.
So obviously, I made banana bread french toast. Duh.
So the food in my life has been very good. And so has the fun! I’m still carefully waiting for my tendon to heal, so I haven’t been running except for a couple of short jogs at crossfi. But on Saturday we went to the lake and had a pretty awesome time.
We had a misfortune on the way home when some doo-doo brain was making a left turn without using the turn lane. My sister’s husband was towing the boat with her car when it happened. The force from the boat made him unable to stop in time so we ended up rear-ending a truck and the boat crashed into the trailer.
My dad says it’s just a cosmetic issue and that the boat won’t take on water because of it, which is a relief. So we should be able to continue playing with it until the end of the summer, hopefully!
Crossfit is going ok. I feel like I’m not very good at workouts lately. I’ve had a hard time. Last night I was dying trying to get through this WOD:
3 rounds for time:
145lb squat clean x 5
My squat cleans were ridiculously slow. I need to practice staying upright. Front squats, overhead squats, all that stuff… today we are doing overhead squat max. And running a mile for time. It’s going to be interesting. This will be my first mile to run since…. uh… almost a month ago. Oops. 😦 Pretty sure my goal is just to be under 7 minutes. It’s going to be 93 degrees and humid during that run
There is one thing I am better at: rope climbs. I still don’t know how to come down without burning the poop out of my shin, but I can go up it in two and a half pulls, which is very nice –use those legs!!!
