G.I. Jane is oddly my favorite WOD. 100 burpee pull-ups (yes, thats one move, burpee, into a pull-up). I hate burpees as much as the next person, and I REALLY hate pull-ups. But the "scaling" for this is a sort of jumping pullup. Basically I can pull myself up if my arms are not completely locked out at the bottom. Still very painful, but obviously not a hard. I finished in 10:54 (about a MINUTE before Matt!!! Woop)
*Here's the proof*
**He did it on a higher bar!
After yesterday's killer pull-up WOD, and Tuesday's pull-up infested WOD, and now G.I. Jane....I feel like my arms might fall off.
The Paleo Chili was good!
As promised, here's the recipe :)
Veggie-ful Paleo Chili
(pics to come later!!)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 yellow onion (chopped)
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1 lb lean ground beef (grass-fed if possible!)
- 1-2 tbsp chili powder (or to taste)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 15oz can tomato sauce
- 1 medium zucchini, chopped
- 3 carrots, sliced (1/2 in slices?)
- (other veggie suggestions- sweet potato, jicama, squash, peppers...)
- 1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
1- Heat oil in a large pot, then add onion and garlic. Let cook for about 2 minutes
2- Add beef and cook until it's no longer pink.
3- Add everything else! Let cook for about an hour and a half on low (make sure you stir occasionally and check the added veggies to make sure they're soft)
4- Taste, add salt, pepper, chili powder as needed. Then eat!!!
Tastes really good over a coconut flour biscuit! Also, would be good served over spaghetti squash.
Before I sign off for the weekend (it's Friday people!!!) ...
First, I found the most amazing paleo approved dessert topping....I can't wait to tell you about it next week! (I literally sang "Almost Paradise" as I licked my spoon after making this)
Second, It's my Daddy's 50th birthday today!!
Yep, I made him try CrossFit when he visited me.
I'll be 25 in a few months, which means I'll be exactly half his age! Which I realized this morning, means he was 25 when I was born (lots of work going on in my head today) I couldn't imagine having 2 kids right now. My parents are crazy people :)
Last, tomorrow marks 1 week until my first CrossFit competition and Sunday we are doing our CrossFit total! I can't wait to see how I do!
Happy weekend everyone!
