Who needs an alarm?

I woke up at 5:45 am to a flashlight shining in my eyes thanks to my lovely daughter. She insisted she was starving and we needed to go downstairs and eat immediately. So I had an early breakfast of shredded sweet potato fried in coconut oil topped with 2 fried eggs (they aren't pretty but at least they stayed in the pan this time!)

I shadowed the 9:30 am CrossFit class. I've been putting in my time so I can hopefully start teaching some classes of my own soon. I stayed for the free yoga class my gym offers every Thursday. We did head stands, fun stuff :). Then it was time for me to actually work out & get the 3rd benchmark WOD done. 5 rounds of 20 burpees & 20 kettle bell swings (35lb.). I still wasn't feeling 100% but I managed to finish in 10:48 which was faster than all but one person on the board from Tuesday (same girl who was faster on the 1st benchmark WOD!). So now I have these times to compare when we do the workouts again at the end of the challenge...I'm really curious to see if I actually have a significant improvement! Hope so!!

Lunch was a "clean out the fridge" salad topped with a can of salmon. Baby spinach, red onions, kalamata olives, sliced almonds, leftover Balsalmic Brussels Sprouts & butternut squash fries. I used some brine from the olives for a dressing.

Now we are headed down to celebrate my nephew's 1st birthday in San Luis Obispo. On the way out of town JD & the kids grabbed some Taco Bell...

I wasn't very hungry so I had a can of green beans. A few hours down the road we stopped for a potty break so I made up a random salad with what I brought in the car. Romaine lettuce, a couple hard boiled eggs, broccoli, sunflower seeds, raisins, sliced almonds, coconut flakes and a few dabs of Paleo Mayo for dressing. I was going to throw on a can of sardines or tuna but I decided to spare my family from that lovely smell in the car :).

We are breaking up the trip by staying at a friend's house in Turlock tonight...but first we are making a pit stop at Trader Joe's in Modesto, good thing I brought an ice chest!

  1. Looks great! Good luck staying on track while you are on vacation. That's always the hardest time for me. So so sad we will miss you this weekend, especially since we are going to be staying a couple streets over from you guys :( Have a fun trip!
