What I Ate Wednesday #14

Good morning! Its another WIAW post and I'm going to continue posting like I have the last few weeks. Instead of posting everything I had in one day, I'm posting all the things I ate this week that caught my eye! This girl likes variety! 

----What WIAW isn't about----
Comparison - Judgement - Restriction - Guilt

----What WIAW is about----
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!

WIAW is about food and fun! It's about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so much more <3

Sun, Fun, and Blueberries...

Ever have one of those days that don't start off the way you wanted? I really wanted to go to the CrossFit PRx lake day but didn't make it out due to errands. BOO. 

So instead I got in a great WOD at home while my mom ran on the treadmill. Gym time is like movie time with exercise! I think I was making my mother nervous while I was doing squats. Beastmode. I also got my Unbroken Designs belt this week in neon yellow; I absolutely LOVE it. Plus its pretty.

This week at CrossFit has been rough! I have been sore pretty much everyday. 

Some highlights: I PR'd my clean and jerk by 10lbs making it 100lbs, I finally got my toes to bar and strung two together (at the expense of 4 hand tears in one day - joy), and I over came my fear of high box jumps (usually do the 20" side of the box but Wednesday I did the 24'' side) but it was definitely a challenge mentally.

After my workout I had this amazing dish for lunch! Chopped tilapia over baby spinach and broccoli! SO GOOD. I pretty much inhaled it. And yes that is a John Deere plate. 

When the hubby came home we got ready to go to Moorehead Blueberry Farm to pick blueberries but when we checked their site they were already picked over. I was definitely not happy as I have been looking forward to picking blueberries for days. So like always it was Hubby to the rescue and he found us a new farm to try out called Pioneer Blueberry Farm! We definitely enjoyed it more so than the other farm. It had tons of organic berries at a great price and it was much more peaceful. We spent two hours in the 90 degrees heat sweating our butts off picking blueberries and ended up with 10lbs! Something about picking blueberries is so therapeutic. Not to mention that I probably ate my body weight in blue berries as I picked. Oops.

Dinner was thrown together quick: beef burger over baby spinach with onions, mushrooms and avocado and sweet potato fries. Definitely my favorite easy meal.

Well I'm off to help my mother make homemade peach and blueberry cobbler (I don't like cobbler apparently I'm a freak but Dad and the hubby do)!

Question: How did you spend your Saturday?

Did you PR or overcome a fear this week?

MIMM #9 June beginnings...

Good afternoon my lovelies! Its Monday – BOO, and the sun is shining – YAY! So I guess I can’t complain too much! Sorry for the hiatus (Granny I’ll try to post faster I swear), but I got sick then the hubby got sick so you know how that goes. Fun stuff.

Since it's Monday, I thought we would talk about all the marvelous things that I've been up to this past weekend!

First, I got a sweet package in the mail from my friend who teaches an indoor/outdoor cross training program that was created with women in mind called the Brawlin’ Betties Frit Camp! Can’t wait to wear my shirt and to represent! If you are in the Killeen, Texas area check them out or check them out on Facebook!

My family came into town (missed them BUNCHES) so I made some more of The Lean Green Beans Peanut Butter Avocado Cookies. In fact I made a double batch, and they lasted a day. ONE DAY. Obviously they were a hit.

Saturday was a blast! I love when you have an all-over MARVELOUSLY AWESOME day. Woke up and went to CrossFit PRx for a fundraiser. Houston recently lost 4 fire fighters in a terrible fire on May 31st; it was a very sad day. So Saturday the husband, my family and I loaded up and went to show our support for the HFD Fundraiser. It was 100 degrees outside so I didn’t participate (I don’t tolerate heat very well, or at all in fact and I didn’t want to spend the rest of the day with a migraine puking all over the place). They had a team wod (5-Alarm Fire: 5 Rounds – 41 DU’s, 35 Box jumps, 29 KBS, and 24 Wall balls), as well as a team firefighter wod. One of the firefighters did 5 minutes of burpees in full gear, such mad props to him! No way I could do that. I did however get the chance to help with the Kids Wod and that was a blast! Some of those kids meant serious business and didn’t care about coming in last place so long as they completed. Over all we were able to raise over four thousand dollars to donate to the 100 Club which supports local law enforcement and firefighters. And that’s what I love about the CrossFit community, dozens of people coming together to get their butt kicked in the miserable heat for a good cause. (More pics here.)

Later in the afternoon, hubby and I went out on a date! First stop Jerry’s Built Burgers for dinner! I got a fruit cup, my burger bunless, and the sweet potato crinkle fries! (No way I can resist them, they are like heaven in my mouth) And we rounded off the day with Man of Steel in the mega theatre. Probably my favorite movie so far this year! I’ve always been a huge Superman fan, and I was no disappointed with this one. It had a lot of Christianity references which some people are having problems with according to news media, but I found it awesome! Isn’t the hubby just cute as can be?

Tried a new recipe this weekend as well! What Runs Lori’s Paleasagna. It was delicious! I felt like I could have done a better job seasoning it, and I added spinach to the recipe but it was awesome and I plan on making this again and again! When Dad and Hubby are happy you know its good.

Since I have been asked this a few times this weekend, no I do not follow strict Paleo. I do cook a lot of their recipes, but I believe in (almost) all things in moderation (meat, fruit, dairy, nuts, grains, fats, ect.) I don’t eat a lot of grains except for Ezekiel bread, brown rice, and quinoa which is technically a seed. I don’t eat anything “white” except for cauliflower. I’m just an eat clean (little to no processed foods) kind of girl.

Questions: What is your favorite benchmark or hero wod?

What’s your favorite Paleo recipe or blog?
