Choosing f(i)t and baking goodness

As of now I CrossFit at the BOOM box 3-4 days a week and do a bootcamp put on by iChoosefit 2-3 days a week. This morning was choosing the fit. And by choosing fit we did a good warmup with a 5 minute run, assorted drills and shuttles, several rounds of boxing (my favorite) and a mix of movements with and without weights. I haven’t been to bootcamp regularly in a couple of weeks due to sick children, sick grandmother and dad’s dr. appointments but I was able to make it back this week! I sure did need it because my week was getting WEAK 🙂

Took measurements today as well and I lost one inch in my waist and 5lbs from my last weigh in which was sometime in October maybe.. i think.. not really sure!?! I can’t recall. But my BMI dropped 3.5% as well! Yay me! Really YAY! I’ll look to find my original measurements from March when I first started doing the bootcamps. I’ve always been relatively active but my good ol’ weight likes to fluctuate and well I LOVE to eat food! So by February of this year I had reached 155 on the scales and for my 5’2 size that’s a little heavy. I’ve dropped 30 of those scary pounds and lost lots of inches. I’ll get back to you on that one in regards to total inches lost 🙂

So I’ve told you I loved the food and I really love SWEETs so it’s hard to let it all go. Well my CrossFit coach shared a recipe and I decided to make it last night and boy was it YUMMO! Kids wanted to finish it off last night and I think Ernie was close to waking up in the middle of the night to do the same thing. But I woke up and everything was still in it’s place.

Before I go into detail with recipe I did take a picture of dinner as well. It’s not fancy or anything special. Some ginger chicken and brocolli with asparagus. It was tasty but like I said nothing fancy. Just needed to feed the troops 🙂
