My body knows when Friday arrives. Immediately after work and about an hour before CrossFit class, my body needs a 16 oz. dose of caffeine (hazelnut cream and sugar). I need time for the caffeine to take effect. I know. I know. Eating clean means that I should avoid the cream and the sugar. I’m working on that.
For now, my compromise is driving around with sandwich bags stuffed with Sugar In The Raw packets in my glove compartment. Whenever I buy java on the road, I add my sugar. The Sugar In The Raw is natural unrefined sugar. Yeah, it’s still sugar, but more natural than the other options.
Although challenging, today’s WOD was refreshing compared to yesterday’s “Halloween Gone Bad,” it still was no picnic. Completing 5 rounds of strict pull ups with a thinner blue band was super sweet! Gotta love progress!
B’Dazzle (my son) completed the 400M runs with me, so that was fun. By the way, “B’Dazzle” is what he insists we call him; before B’Dazzle, he insisted we call him “medium.” He was tired of being called “little man.” I think, B’Dazzle, has a lot to do with his football game and how quickly he gets into the backfield! He’s cute! B’Dazzle did burpees for most of the hour long class. Kids have so much energy!
He’s excited about fitness and that’s the way it should be with kids. I set a good example for him and he’s certainly picking up on my lifestyle. Last week hubby called me to tell me that B’Dazzle ordered a veggie sub over something with meat! Oh man! Those kind of choices get my hyped, especially because I wasn’t present. He is enrolled in the kids CrossFit and loves the class.
Today when I got home, there was a medium size white envelope on the kitchen counter. The envelope was addressed to my mom, but had a written note, “For Tanya, love mother.”
Today is not my birthday, so it was a “just because” gift. Ironically, I just picked up a cool “just because” gift for her. Mother saw this night-shirt in a catalog and felt it suited me perfectly! Lol! We rarely see eye-to-eye on anything, so this gesture is huge! Thanks mom!
Well it is another late night and it’s definitely time to crash. Sweet dreams!!
