A little inspiration for Tuesday!
First, we booked a "suite" hotel (get it? hehe) Ok, it was pretty sweet, but it was also a suite that had a fully functioning kitchen. We packed up food from home, including eggs, chicken sausage, veggies, and some pre-cooked food (my veggie chili!) that we were able to just microwave.
When we found they had a Whole Foods, we decided it would be ok to spend a little money. I had NEVER been to a Whole Foods before, so this was ridiculously exciting for me. We hit up the salad bar and made really big salad to take for lunch. You don't HAVE to go to a Whole Foods to do this! Salads are great, I don't care much for lettuce, and it doesn't keep me full anyway, so I made my salad with mostly veggies and (pre-cooked) chicken.
I was super hungry by the time we left the seminar, but we didn't want to stop for a long sit-down dinner. We found the closest Five Guys Burgers and Fries and each got a bacon burger with no bun. (the regular burgers have 2 patties!) MMmmm This is my new favorite fast food. Other good options are Chipotle and Panera salads (no cheese or dressing).
It's not beautiful, but it was delicious!
It is difficult to eat at restaurants on strict diets. If you're going to eat out, expect that you will probably not be 100% perfect. Most likely, the oil the food is cooked in is not going to be coconut or OO, it might even be butter! I've found that being aware of what you're eating is half the battle. If you have a food allergy or an intolerance, then you probably shouldn't risk it, otherwise, remember if you're strict at least 80% of the time, you're doing well!
#1: Diane Ladder:
Every minute on the minute for 7 minutes, increasing by 1 rep each time
1 155# deadlift, 1 HSPU (2 DL, 2 HSPU....)
I sucked...I couldn't get up, so I quickly jumped on the scaled wagon and did hand release push-ups!
#2: 2k row (aka...2000m row) I finished in 8:11 woop woop!
#3 : 6 min of dumbbell snatches alternating arms each minute, 10 snatches per minute
I need to work on my upper body strength....It's so frustrating :( But, like the motto of my page, I'll keep going!
**This Saturday, I am participating in the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Fundraiser, Barbells For Boobs, to raise awareness and funds for low income and uninsured women and men to receive necessary screening and procedures. We do the WOD "Grace", 30 clean and jerks for time. I have reached my fundraising goal of $100 but would graciously accept more (its a great cause!) BUT Matt has not reached his goal, and if he can get the funds raised, he will do the workout wearing a PINK BRA! (and I will absolutely post pictures and/or videos on here!!)
