Tonight’s dinner. Recently my body has been ca-raving green smoothies like nobodies business. I’ve been trying this “be more of an intuitive eater” thing, and I’m not sure if it’s working (or if I’m doing it right, eek) but I try to give my bod what it needs, and of late that has been lots of spinach smoothies. I had half a mango left in my fridge so I enjoyed 1/2 (of the half) with dinner and 1/2 in my smoothie, which gave it an off kind of color but delicious flavor. I’m such a creature of habit and I think I’ve had this open face egg sandwich / smoothie meal for at least the last 10 weeknights in a row. So easy, so healthy - what’s not to love?
The 6:30 crossfit class is when all the hardcore peeps go. Hardcore that I am not. C’est la vie, at least I went - right? RIGHT!? Today’s WOD was something along the lines of 3 rounds for time 400m run, 12 bar squats (?), 24 double-unders (and 63 singles for those of us who are not quite the jumprope expert…ahem.) and then some other weird stuff that I struggled through (medium and low intensity) after that was over. Wowza. Going to be sore again tomorrow.
I kind of miss blogging about this crazy ass
journey roller coaster I find myself on. So, I think I might try to start getting back in to it. Slowly. And with no promises. BUT. Things are really good right now. My current “heavy” is approx 1.5 lbs more than my lightest ever, which let me tell you is some kind of insanity. You know what else is insanity? Cross fit. Holy FUCK that shit is hard, but I’ve been doing it! And for the first time since I have lived in OKC I feel as though I am a part of a community, which is prettay awesome. I don’t know, that’s all I have for now, I guess. Anyone still out there? How are you doing with your goals?
Blogging about weight loss sucks. And it makes me obsessive. And hard on myself. And the truth is I just don’t want to do it anymore. Health-wise I am in a really good place. I weigh the least I’ve weighed since sometime in the fall of 2010, which was when I was the smallest I’d ever been, and that’s wonderful and all of that but so are the other things going on in my life. Which is why I’ve decided to take a pause on this blog. I don’t know if it will be forever or just for a little bit, but I think I need some perspective. Neither the world nor my life revolve around my weight loss, and although it is a very pleasant happening the sun will still rise and set just as it did the day before whether I eat a burger and fries or a green smoothie and salad. And there really is more to life. Really. So anyway, I’ll be focusing on my other place of interest for now - www.foodingandfriendingtoo.com come on over and check it out if you want to!
I’m delayed in the ATL airport, so in desperate search of something both delicious and healthy I walked the entire terminal from one end to the other to determine what my healthiest choice would be. I settled on a Greek salad (248 cals, props for the nutrition label!), but I’m more pleased with my mini-workout…I broke a bit of a sweat!
I do genuinely love exercising and eating healthy, but this was too good to pass up. HAHA! Happy Friday!!
