Hello,  hello!

Yesterday included lots of delicious eats, but my favorite of the day was something I call “Coconut Fried Bananas.” Holy goodness, they tasted amazing and were so simple to make. Recipe below!

Lunch

Yesterday’s lunch was all around delicious and nutritious. I had a couple of Trader Joe’s salmon burgers with barbecue sauce.

I love lunches like this one.

A little while after eating lunch, I did my Monday time trial for the Plank Challenge. For me, so much of planking is mental, so I grabbed a magazine and my iPhone to distract myself. If I think too much about the time or how hard it is to hold a plank, I don’t stay up as long.

As soon as I started my plank, Murphy came over to see what was going on.

Snapping pictures of him helped make the time pass, but he was not impressed with my planking by any means.

My goal for the day was 4:30, but I managed to hold my plank for 4:47! Woohoo! I guess all of my distractions worked!

Snack

After my plank, I made the most delicious afternoon snack ever: Coconut Fried Bananas! Seriously, make this one! You will not be disappointed!

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut

  5. Remove from heat and serve warm.

Workout

After I ate my snack, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. It was a good one, but not my favorite. I dunno. I guess I’m itching for a Wallball/Burpee/Box Jump workout. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve done one of those””and they’re so much fun!

Strength

1 Hang Power Snatch 3 Overhead Squats.  6 x 1+3. Add weight ea. Set

WOD

AMRAP 10:

10 Snatches

10 T2B

Rx: (95, 65)
L2: (75, 55)
L1: (65, 45)
Beg: (Hang Power Snatch, Knee-Lift)

For the Hang Power Snatch + 3 Overhead Squats, I stared at 45 pounds and worked my way up to 75 pounds. For the WOD, I did Level 2, which was 55 pounds for the Snatches and Knees-to-Elbows instead of Toes-to-Bar. I’m the worst at Toes-to-Bar. I can only do like 2 in a row. And when I’m tired during a WOD”¦ forget about it. They’re so hard for me!

Dinner

After CrossFit, Mal and I headed home. While I showered, he started making dinner, which was Make-Your-Own Tacos. Ingredients included: ground beef with taco seasoning, brown rice”¦

I ended up using the ingredients to make a massive taco salad.

Holy yum! Awesome dinner last night. Mal and I both agreed we need to have more Make-Your-Own Taco nights at our house.

Mal and I ate dinner while we watched the most intense episode of The Walking Dead. Is anyone else watching this show? Holy crap, it’s good!

After dinner, I enjoyed a mug of hot mulled spiced cider.
