I’m trying not to be angry as I write this but I just lost 2 hours of work in some mysterious file corruption and it’s pissing me off but… I’m moving on.
Anyway, I had a FABULOUS New Year’s Day! The kids and I made chocolate chip pancakes and I tried to get cute…
The 9-Year-Old was unimpressed. I believe I may have even gotten an eye roll.
I thought it was fun but then again, I’m a big dork.
After breakfast I headed to the one class my gym was having and spent an awesome hour with these amazing folks.
We did a KILLER workout, which I modified slightly by running instead of rowing.
1 . 1 . 2015
- 1K Row (I ran 1200 meters instead)
- 100 Wall Balls (14lbs but I used 16 as we were all out)
- 20 Rounds of
- -1 Clean & Jerk (95 lbs)
- -5 Air Squats
I KILLED it with a time of 23:58. I mean, I really felt amazing during and afterwards. I can only guess it’s because it was noon instead of 6 a.m., which is when I usually work out.
I hung out at the gym a bit and then hit the grocery store on the way home to pick up a few things for dinner and the week. We decided to ring in the new year with a seafood feast so I made crab balls again (we had them on Christmas Eve, too.)
I’ll post a detailed recipe on the GreenLiteBites tomorrow but basically all they are is crab, a little bread, and Old Bay held together by egg and a touch of yogurt. The Husband goes ga-ga over them.
Update: Recipe posted! Click here for the Maryland-Style Crab Ball Recipe.
I went ga-ga over these…
Roasted brussels sprouts tossed in a bit of bacon fat and maple syrup. They came out SO, SO GOOD.
Other than that today has been pretty low key. I’m not making an grand New Year’s plans. No resolutions. No big goals. Nothing. I’m just working on feeling confident and at peace.
How about you?
