I beat Matt (again). I'm getting good at this!
Yesterday we did did "CrossFit Total" which is the max amount of weight you can lift doing a back squat, a military press, and a deadlift added all together. I got 560! I'm proud of that number...I think!
Week 2 of the Paleo Challenge is complete! It's rough :( I must admit to devouring a can of vanilla coconut cream. It's just so good, and only a little bit of agave...Don't judge me!
Saturday night, I made breakfast for dinner (My favorite). Coconut flour pancakes, with a homemade berry topping.I truly had no idea what I was doing while making the berry topping, but it turned out great!
Sunday night dinner was chicken soup and dumplings...COMPLETELY PALEO! Yes, I somehow managed to make a dumpling without flour and it tasted like a dumpling! I wish I could give you the recipe right now...but I made the dumplings while drinking my daily allotted glass of wine and therefore was
Those potato-y looking bits are jicama! Which I believe is pronounced "Hicama" because its a mexican and Mexicans spell "haha" like "jaja"....I'm of eastern European descent so I prefer to call it Yicama. Either way, use it in place of potatoes! It such a trickster looking all potato like, but having a sweeter taste, with an apple like texture and low starch and low glycemic index! Sure, it's not really adding much nutrition, but it's not hurting! It adds texture and additional fiber.
If you're looking for just the soup recipe, it's just organic, natural, nothing added vegetable broth, with every vegetable I had in my refrigerator, and a store bought already-roasted chicken, shredded, and added all together. I also put both chicken legs in to add more flavor, as well as some pieces with skin (I picked all of that out before serving the soup). I added about a cup of water to it because the broth was strong. I also added parsley and thyme then let for for about 45 minutes. It was delicious and really easy.
Tonight, I'm helping to introduce about 20 women to CrossFit with Girlnetic! I'm so excited to share my passion with all of these awesome ladies!
Until tomorrow! Keep going people!
