Hello Friday, Hello World….
4 weeks left then it will finally be 2012! I’m so happy for 2011 to be coming to an end. It has not been a GOOD year. It’s been alright but I’m ready to move on.
Yes the slacker in me forgot to take a picture of this mornings WOD. It’s not so much that I’m a slacker, well I am, but in regards to the picture taking it’s that I forget. I am so darn tired and my brain just stops functioning properly. The last thing I remember is to snap a pic and it’s halfway home when I finally do remember. I could ask our coach but I’ll use him as a crutch and ALWAYS ask him to send it to me, I’m sure he’d rather not be bothered with that tiny task daily
I did this in 6:51. I should have been quicker at it but I moved slow in the first round of burpee box jumps. It’s a fault I have that I need to correct. It seems I always take my first round a little slow and then I think to myself “oh crap, you gotta move!” I guess it’s part of it and I’m still learning new things.
We finished a little early so I got to work on my kipping a little. I’m definitely getting better and oh so close to getting that pull up. It’s there but a lot of it is mental on my part and the darn bar hurts my sad little hands.
Tomorrow will be a double workout. First at iChooseFit then off to the BOOM Box! Open WOD tomorrow so come out if you can even if it’s just to watch 🙂
Enough WODtalk and moving on to what I made for dinner last night (that I didn’t eat). So I was running low on supplies but had a little of this and little of that and I already had mentally prepared to make a beef soup of sorts and that is what I did. I used chicken broth, carrots, celery, onions, salsa and a little tomato sauce. I tossed in the ground beef and some extra seasonings.
While that was simmering up I decided to make some Paleo bread (cornbread like). I whipped up the ingredients and realized I was supposed to use Baking Powder not BAKING SODA! What do I do? I don’t know. I don’t want to waste 8 eggs or my coconut flour so I just threw in Baking Powder as well and crossed my fingers and prayed for the best! So I poured my batter into a muffin tin and put it in the oven knowing it couldn’t go that “bad” could it? Well they came out cute and sweet BUT the bottom halves had a slight green tint to it. So of course I freak out… like how could that happen. What’s going on? Well we came to the conclusion that it’s the baking soda’s fault. The bread although bland still was edible and the kids enjoyed it. It should make for a great lunch in a few hours!
Here’s the recipe for the bread in case you want to give it a whirl. From Paleo Foodies:
2/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) (If you cant eat butter, mix coconut butter and olive oil)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together the coconut flour, salt, and baking powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the melted butter. Add the coconut flour mixture to the egg/butter mixture and stir to combine. I used a Kitchen Aid to blend quickly until if formed a dough mixture. Divide the batter amongst 12 greased muffin tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden browned. Take out of oven and let cool. Use in stuffing or eat just by themselves! YUM!
