My husband and I were talking tonight about Paleo vs Zone in attainability and sustainability. I looked up the top 20 male & female athletes in the world from the open and checked out their diets. only 3 males and 4 females eat paleo. almost every one else said they eat quality food but don’t measure (which is essentially what we do since we’ve been doing it for so long) Wondering...
Tickets have all been purchased! so excited!
My snatch hasnt gotten this much attention in a...
and I think I also am in love with my new coach! :) We worked on snatch today for skill and I honestly think I added 10# to my 1RM. I had a new coach that was able to teach 2 brand new people how to snatch and showed me and another girl how to really improve our existing snatches. I love when I walk out of class and even though I didnt pay attention to my time at all I got a great workout. I...
I am sore! we did it yesterday and it was rough. I did all but 6 HSPU rx and then had to add an ab mat for the last few. I did the first 21DL rx @ 155 and then stripped down to 135 because I could feel my back rounding. and Its not worth getting hurt over… time was 7.38
Vanilla Protein Balls →
so the name of the recipe, (found on http://divabikinileslie.tumblr.com/post/19172748581/clean-vanilla-coconut-bliss-balls) is really Clean Vanilla Coconut Bliss Balls. My husband, being the charmer he is, says “haha, I’ll give you some vanilla bilss balls” I guess some guys never grow up anyway, these are pretty good. They need some spices, but I followed the directions exactly and added...

I only got through 6.5 of the 15 rope climbs. Then it scaled to 9 pullups for the last 3 rounds which were really hard. My biceps and shoulders were cooked after the rope and ball slams I did PR my push jerk though! 108#! I have to say our programming has gotten a lot harder. I love it- I’m going to be a better crossfitter because of it. WODs are always hard but these lately have been REALLY...
this is what I’m talking about. Tomorrow’s WOD: WOD: 5 Rounds for time w/45 secs rest between rounds of 3 Rope Climbs (sub 9 ground to standing to ground hand over hand climbs) followed immediately by 1 min max ball slams 50/30# (must catch ball for rep to count) I actually love rope climbs so I am definitely going. …the benefit is that at least I can plan...
crossfitfelony asked: That's you standing in front of the tractor?! Wow... You are amazing?! Do they make anymore like you? ;) Obviously the zone and Crossfit is working for you. Nice job.
crossfithobbit-deactivated20130 asked: fyi - just ordered me a 6-bottle variety pack. excited for the habanero :P
starving because some how I forgot to bring food for the car and I have back to back meetings. I thought for sure that Starbucks would have some fruit but all they have are GREEN bananas. so pretty much straight sugar for lunch- skinny caramel macchiato along with glazed almonds. Times like these is when gluten free really sucks!
to look or not to look...
Our gym is under new ownership. Lots of changes, but one is that they post the WOD on their website the night before. Luckily its under a link on the page & not staring at you when you visit the site to sign up. I haven’t decided if I am the type of person who wants to know the WOD before class or not. I think I like the unexpected, and I can’t be sure I wouldn’t...
Grocery List Staples
We are total creatures of habit around here. There are some foods that stay on our grocery list no matter how much I buy and I thought I would share. One question I get asked often is how do we afford to eat the way we do? Well, these items along with milk & juice are some of the few items we actually buy from a store. Eggs & meat we buy from a local farmer. Check out...
It’s been 5 weeks since my last shot and I feel so much better I did grace on Sunday, skill & a WOD yesterday and I’m normal- sore today. Meaning I’m as sore as I should be for the activity, and I don’t feel like its a side effect. I have been waking up nauseous the last week or so, even throwing up a few days but it passes. ( no, not pregnant! I took a test...
crossfitfelony asked: You are amazing and a true warrior. This is another reason I love CrossFit... People like you. I am definitely following your tumblr. Thank you for the add. ~ Rob
There's no crying in Crossfit...
But I did! Since my surgery in December for I’ve been on an aggressive treatment because the surgery wasn’t successful. I’ve been on a chemotherapy medicine with the intent to stop growth of bad cells. Unfortunately the medicine stops growth of all cells which doesn’t mesh well with being a Crossfitter. I can handle most of the side effects; hot flashes, fine. losing my...

A bit of the story- Nachman’s team examined ground chicken feathers from six states and China (feathers, like human hair and nails, contain traces of the chemicals an animal has been exposed to). One of the most troubling substances they identified was a broad-spectrum class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones that the FDA banned for poultry production in 2005. Antibiotics are given to...
Gluten Free Drinking?
I work for a large liquor supplier and my boss is pretty amazing. He sent this list of our GF brands and I thought I’d share. Some of them are surprising! *Note – All pure (non-flavored) whiskeys, vodkas, gins, rums, and tequilas are gluten free due to their distillation process. GINS: Booths, Gordons, Gordons Citrus, Gordons Wildberry, Popov, Tanqueray Gin & Rangpur TEQUILAS Jose...
