Things from the Web

on October 3, 2013

Things from the Web has become my way to get a post out on days that I don’t have much to say, or I’m just too lazy.  Today is a lazy day!

1.  Since starting the Whole Life Challenge, I have been eating avocados a lot more regularly.  I will buy a few on the weekend and then take them to work, to add to breakfast and lunch through the week.  Here is a handy dandy guide for how to tell if your avocado is ready to eat. 

avacadoThis comes from Boxgrl81.  Be sure to check out the full post that gives some info on why avocados are a great addition to your diet.

2.  Here’s another one from Boxgrl81.  The top 10 reasons why women should CrossFit.  Love this!

3.   I have been craving sweets in the afternoon, and so far have resisted the temptation to hit the jar of M&Ms in the office pantry.  I am gong to make these little pumpkin snacks tomorrow in the hopes that they hit the spot.

Tonight is a double workout night – CrossFit at 7 and hockey at 9:30.  Here’s what I’ve got waiting for me at the Box tonight. 
WOD oct 3

I’m looking forward to the bench press.  It’s one of my better lifts.  Burpees and double unders.  Awesome!  I may have to do one of the scaled options since 10 burpees could take me almost the whole minute…especially as we get further into the WOD!  I should be good and tired for my hockey game after all that! 

Have you found anything interesting or informative on the web lately?

Do you have any healthy and tasty pumpkin recipes?  ‘Tis the season! 

And remember….there’s nothing cooler than a strong woman!
