I’ve been reporting that I’ve been feeling great this whole time with the exception of the first few days and it’s all true. But yesterday and today seem to be EXTRA good. Is it just now that my body has finally accepted this way of being? I’m not sure, I’m just saying, I’m MORE AWAKE and I have more ENERGY than I felt last week. I was already feeling great and felt fine. No Cravings. But Normal. However, the past two days I feel more alert and energized. Of course I’m still sleepy at 4:30 am when it’s time to get up but I’m not drained sleepy. And I’m not having a midmorning yawnfest. “MY” extended end date is through this Thursday but maybe I’ll just keep trucking. That’s just A MAYBE folks. And you’ll know I’ll keep you posted in whatever it is I decide.
The BOOM Box is growing and I LOVE IT cause I LOVE MY BOX! It’s great to see new faces in the 5am and 6am classes. And even thought I don’t see the afternoon folks, I know new people are coming and it’s great. I hope they make it their workout home 🙂 Enough LOVE talk and onto the workout.
Skill/Strength: We worked on Press today. We took 90% of our max then took 80%, 85% and 90% of that for a 3, 3, 3+ combo. After a couple of warm ups with the 35lb bar I jumped to 50, 55, and 60lbs. My last set I completed 8 reps. Not bad since Press is one of my weaknesses.
MetCon: 3 Rounds of 50 KB swings and 400m run. Have I complained about all the running we’re doing lately? hehe, YES I complain lots. But doesn’t it seem like more running than one should want to do? JOKES of course. I need to run even if I despise it. I worked with 1POOD (about 35lbs) for my KB Swings. I did all 3 rounds UNBROKEN. And well the running sucked. So I think the runs took up too much time but that’s part of it. TIME: 11:57
Well I already touched base on the Sugar Detox and I don’t want to bore you with more rambling. But I did manage to try out a new recipe. Another Blogger Friend of mine posted it from Everyday Paleo. I pretty much had all the ingredients so I made it. Simple with a slight twist take on Meatballs. It was a win for having something different. It can be found at Everyday Paleo and below as I have copied it from them. The only thing I didn’t have was Ground Pork, so I doubled up on the Beef. I served mine up on some shredded and sauteed zucchini. It was wonderful!
The Sauce (Seafood enchilada sauce from Everyday Paleo)
Note: prepare sauce or have it simmering prior to putting meatballs into the oven.
1 medium onion, minced
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 cups tomato puree (make your own-about 4 large tomatoes pureed in a food processor)
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
Saute the onions in coconut oil until limp. Add tomato puree, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano and salt. Mix well and let simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Pour the sauce into a food processor and process until smooth.
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 garlilc cloves
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 small onion, minced
2 tsp cumin
Mix together all ingredients and form golf ball size meatballs. Place meatballs into a glass dish (will probably need 2- makes about 24 meatballs) and bake at 375 for 15 min. Then spoon sauce over the meatballs and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Try it out. Let me know what you think about it.
That’s it for today folks. Have a MARVELOUS TUESDAY.
