eats and exercise.

What’s going on, people?!?!

I’ve missed this lil’ corner of the internets and decided to come back and bombard everyone with my recent eats and sweats. Cuz trust me… I’ve been eatin’ and sweatin’ alot!

If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, (#socialaddict) then I’m pretty sure you all know I am still obsessed with Crossfit. In fact, at the moment Crossfit is my only form of exercise these days. I typically go 4-6 days/week and I can’t seem to stay away 😉 AND I have also started to do a bit of coaching twice a week for 3 classes. I am currently considered an “intern” at my Crossfit box and I honestly learn something new everyday. It’s fun, exciting, rewarding, a lot of times smelly and hardly ever easy. I am loving it!

Have you heard of the Reebok Crossfit Open? Basically, any athlete is allowed to register to compete for 5 weeks. Every week a new workout is posted, resulting in 5 workouts total, and you have until the following Sunday to post your scores to the main site. The top 48 male and female of each region ( Crossfit Boro is in the South East region) advance to Regionals and the top 3 of each region advance to the Reebok Crossfit Games in California!

Needless to say, about 50 something people at my box have signed up including myself. The first workout was released on March 6 and every Friday Crossfit Boro has held a big event where all of the competitive athletes come and complete the workout! As of today, we have completed three of the five workouts and only have two more to go. SO, if you my dear reader are a local/GSU student/Statesborinian BRING YOURSELF to CFB Friday night to cheer on my fellow Crossfitters and myself. It’s a good time… always a good time.

K, now on to what I’ve been stuffing my always hungry face with. 

Image
Lettuce wraps with ground beef, sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms, jalapenos, avocado, and salsa!
Image
Veggies for breakfast! Fried eggs, jalapeno sausage, green beans.
Image
Turkey and veggie omelette. Avocado, strawberries, and blueberries on the side.
Image
“carb-loading” 😉 This was a house salad with red peppers, onions, cukes, and homemade croutons. In the far left corner was a chicken salad sandwich! The perfect treat
Image
snacka-ttackin’. Banana with almond butter!
Image
mid-morning pick me up. Apple with homemade sunflower seed butter and coffee drank!
Image
Sweet potato with Kerrygold butter and half of an avocado. I could live off of these two alone and be perfectly ok.

And because everyone could use some sweetness in their life………

Image
homemade strawberry cake. omg
Image
my favorite dessert: chocolate chip nut butter spoon.

On a totally different note, GUESS WHAT?!?! I am going to be an Aunt to a beautiful little NIECE in August. Congrats to my big sister… I can’t wait 🙂
