Exercise + Food

Headband is Brady Bands

I'm going to take out my extensions today - summer running means my entire head is soaking wet and I can't be getting the weave wet every day - takes too long to dry. I think I'll put some back in closer to Fall.  I'm trying to not slack on my running, I have a half coming up in 2 weeks in SAN DIEGO! I'm pumped!!!! The race starts at 6:15am which is like 4:15am Texas times, good thing I'm a morning person. The headphones are BackBeat Fit Wireless Headphones my favorites for running, I can keep one side in and the other out for conversations with my girls.

I'm trying to run 2x a week with either soccer/running on the weekend. I despise hot running really hard, but I hate starting over even more so I suffer through and dream of when it gets cold again. That first chilly morning when you are flying and it's like super amazing - I think about that when I'm chugging up a hill feeling like I'm running in mud. 


My running buddy text me last night - let's run fast tomorrow. I really wanted to say no, I don't feel like it, but I'm too nice and went anyways. This is pretty much how I felt the entire time, but no one gets better sticking in their comfort zone. It's ok to be pissed, to cuss, to hate it, but once you finish. Ahhhh. THAT'S the feeling you remember!!!!



I'm super excited I finally got to snatch today at Crossfit. I've been waiting to try it - I had to google it because I didn't even know what it was hahahaha.


Oliver snatched more than me, I tried to go heavier, but my dang right arm wouldn't get straight. I always wondered why they use such big plates that only weigh 10 pounds, but it's actually very smart because that way you can deadlift or whatever starting at a lower weight - at a regular gym just using a 10 pound plate would put the bar really far down.  I wish they had mirrors though, I have a hard time feeling if my arms are actually straight or not, I think one is and one isn't LOL


A reader shared this recipe with me and it was easy and yummy, my favorite combo! Riced Cauliflower, Dried Cranberries, Toast Almond Slices {I put in a hot skillet for a few minutes}, blue cheese, and chicken. Filling and low cal.

  2. I would recommend having someone video record your snatch (or any move) that way you'll be able to see what exactly you are doing incorrect/too early/too late/etc. I am so glad you are giving Crossfit a chance!!

  9. New snack alert! It's SO.GOOD: pretzels--like Rold Gold or whatever--and laughing cow cheese (I used the swiss) with a red grape on top. Oh my gosh, it's crunchy and creamy and sweet and salty. And verrrry decent macros--BAM!
