Tummy Aches and Pancakes!

1 Nov

How was everyone’s Halloween?! I didn’t go Trick-or-Treating or pass out candy, or even eat candy! I did go to the movies and avoided all of the sugar and saw Perk of Being a Wallflower (loved it! cried! definitely felt homesick seeing my favorite views of Pittsburgh throughout it)

I did wear a costume to CrossFit and work though! (Me on the left!) I was an angel! We did a challenge WOD for the Lurong challenge, it included rowing, double unders, sit-ups, lunges…and more. I was doing well keeping the costume on, but then my jump rope got stuck in my wings and I ripped the whole costume off, hulk style. No not really….Just the wings and halo.

This is what I wore to work on Halloween!
This has nothing to do with Halloween…but be jealous, I ate this on Tuesday…Mmmm Mickey Coconut pancakes!

Whine time!

(things going on in my life, let me know if you have any suggestions!)
Let talk workouts and discouragement. I haven’t felt like I’ve “killed a workout” lately. Aside from my OHS PR on Monday, I haven’t really felt good about a WOD. (Did I get a good workout? yes…Am I getting stronger? yes…I can do pull-up with a smaller band and soon I’ll be able to kip…I feel it!) but something is holding me back! AAhhh stupid head…

Have you ever finished a workout and thought, “I could have gone harder/faster”? It’s a terrible feeling.

Unfortunately, I realized last night that the smell of chocolate protein powder makes me EXTREMELY nauseated…I can’t even be in the same apartment as it after it’s already been drank (drunk?) and the container rinsed out. It’s awful. I gag and curl up into fetal position and rock back and forth (truly not exaggerating, here). All I wanted was some saltine crackers…but guess what? They aren’t paleo and I don’t need to lose anymore points on this diet challenge! Paleo followers– what do you do when you have an upset stomach??

Spearkin of upset stomachs…after this challenge, I am thinking I might alter my diet (*gasp*). I know, I know….I love paleo, and I will continue following the basic rules of it (still not going to eat gluten or processd foods/sugars) but something isn’t right. I’m not doing something right. I’ve felt nauseated and tired too often in the past few weeks. I either have NO appetite or I’m a starvin’ Marvin! So, research is being done! More to come as it’s discovered 🙂

Wish me luck (or drive?) tonight! It’s competitors class time which is always a guaranteed killer workout!
