My mind is all over the place so it’s as good a day as any to do another round of Fun Facts.
On this day, their sugar free flavor was vanilla. It was the perfect addition for running errands on a sunny day.
Chips, ice cream, ribs, steak tips, coffee coconut water, applesauce, trail mix, and more.
Roasted garlic and black bean is a delicious combination.
Just as I suspected, it looks weird. My torso is long already but it looks even longer (and my legs look even shorter)! No bueno.
5. Pancakes are still going strong.
I’m eating 1-2 a day. It’s my favorite breakfast and great to eat again at the gym. I find if I eat food with a bunch of seasonings, I get stuff stuck in my teeth. Trying to avoid smiling and talking with my teeth showing is HARD.
6. This morning’s WOD was so freaking hard for me.
With a Running Clock:
30 S2OH for time (155/105)
-3 minute rest-
-3 min rest-
30 Ring Dips
(Track your splits and overall time)
It took me almost 2 minutes longer to complete the STO today than when I did Grace (and Grace is clean & jerks)! I originally wanted to do the rx weight which was 105#, but I tried 95# and it felt so heavy so I stayed there.
This is just a reminder that not all days will be good and it’s humbling to feel that way.
7. I still need to do a review of StrongerRX gloves.
I promise it’s coming soon!
And that’s all I can think of for now.
Your Turn: Share one fun fact with me!

This has nothing to do with anything but I just saw a hummingbird fluttering outside my window and it made my heart happy! :-D haha Random bird sightings aside, the last couple of days have been awesome for me at the gym. On Tuesday, I got my first legit chest to bar pull up! So I crossed it Read the full post –>

I don’t know where the day went yesterday but it flew by. I began my morning like I do most mornings with a pancake. Topped it with the usual: banana slices, cinnamon, and pb. I used a new to me pb from Costco. It’s Kirkland brand and the ingredients are simply dry roasted peanuts and Read the full post –>
