New Workout Schedule means – NO REST THURSDAY!

I had become a little bit of a slacker on Thursdays and I had no REAL reason to be one I just got lazy over the month of December. But with my new CrossFit Schedule I’m OFFICIALLY on a new course.

1/12/12 WOD

This morning’s WOD was a nice little chipper. I felt pretty good the whole way through until I got to the burpees. They got to me for some reason today! I got super hot super quick and couldn’t shed the layers fast enough. Once I regrouped I knocked them right out. And reluctantly went to the sled pull… 30yds, not that far but I’m just not good at this yet. It’s awkward and it’s cold outside… I’m whiny too! Get over it people! Hahaha, yes I do realize I get a little cry babyish…sometimes ALOT cry babyish but I wouldn’t be me any other way. I finished in 8:36… Things to work on: PISTOLS (I suck at those) and PULLING SLEDs!

Like I stated yesterday, dinner would be OUT not IN so no new recipes. I won’t always try out a new recipe either I suppose but I want to at least once a week. Sometimes I may choose to be a little more ambitious 🙂 It’s been brought to my attention by Ernie and others that maybe I should consider creating some sort of Paleo catering/mealplan and in theory it sounds like a good idea but I don’t consider myself a CHEF by any means. I like to cook. I like making something yummy but I’m just a regular ol’ person. I’m pretty clueless most of the time.

So is it an idea I should really try to process or is it a wishful thinking dream maybe turn reality in the future? I don’t know. Do y’all think there’s a market out there for such? I know people do it already. It’s not new or unique but how successful/fruitful can it be? I can’t afford timewise to do it for fun and I can’t afford to do it full time if it doesn’t pay the bills… so much to think about. Chime in if you feel the need. Sponsor me maybe! Hahah, I wish. Any comments for or against the idea are welcome.

Moving on… I did have a little extra chicken on Tuesday so I cooked it up, minced it up, added chopped mushrooms, finely chopped walnuts, jalepenos (roasted and fresh), onion to make a little filling for some lettuce wraps. I like to buy the butter lettuce where it’s still attached to the root. They are giant pieces, sometimes a little flimsy but mostly durable enough. I sent some with Ernie to lunch and he kindly snapped a shot for me. I brought the same thing but I left my tomato and avocado at home so it wasn’t as pretty. Just another quick idea if you’re in a rush. It doesn’t take long to cook a small amount of chicken and sautee up whatever else and slap it in a piece of lettuce to have a quick snack or meal.  NOTE: it’s best to mince, shred chicken while fresh cooked and warm. You may know that but I thought I’d share anyways.

So that’s it for Thursday. Back to being active. It feels good. Feels like I was productive. I KNOW I KNOW before y’all tell me, I need rest too. I do get rest. I know when to hold back. My body tells me, I promise 🙂

Enjoy your day. Try to find a ray of sunshine if your day is bad and if your day is going good then just soak it all in! WOW I’m a cheeseball! Aren’t I?

  1. Hello!!! First of all, you’re not a cheeseball. 🙂 I’m always trying to find the Silver Lining to any dark cloud.

    I really like the idea of a paleo menu plan. Get together a weeks worth of recipes and the grocery list to boot! E-mealz does this for different dietary needs but nothing paleo. Might be hard to have ppl shop for foods they don’t have available in their markets so maybe provide a widely available substitue dish.

    Good to read you! Have a great day!!!

    • Heheh, yes I truly am a cheeseball. Thanks for reading and the advice! I do think I could DO something with a menu or food planning but putting it all together is not an easy task, hahaha. We’ll see.

      Glad you found me. I started reading your old stuff… GOOD JOB on your journey so far. I look forward to staying up to date 🙂

  2. Honestly, I think a Paleo catering business is an amazing idea, and you would be surprised at how easy the catering business can be, even as a part time job. I own a restaurant, and that takes up a lot of time, but I cater about 4 small-ish events a year just for fun (if I don’t have time, I turn events down, my real business comes first,) but most of the events I cater, I do out of my home kitchen! I make a killing from those events (that’s our vacation/fun money for the year). All it takes is good planning, and access to a good food company, and you cannot be afraid to charge people money, because they will pay. You should totally go for it!!! Let me know if I can help you in any way, be it scaling recipes for big groups, putting together a menu… Whatever! I love projects like this, and I know you can do it!!!

    • I am so glad we crossed paths! I will definitely be utilizing your knowledge. I have to really give myself a “pep” talk to push through and do it but I’m thinking this is something I can do and be successful at. Let me get my head together and I’m sure I’ll be hitting you up for some guidance 🙂
