Excuse me, October. Where did you go!? Really, though… is it already time to count down the days until Thanksgiving? Unreal.
One day at time. Let’s talk about today’s meals and moves. There were some good ones!
First things first: breakfast. I celebrated Waffle Wednesday with #GF toaster waffles, almond buttah, banana, hemp seeds and honey. It never gets old.
For lunch: the last bowl of my vegan black bean sweet tater quinoa chili with creamy avocado. Definitely glad I checked that off my Fall Bucket List.
Fast forward to 5:00pm and I was antsy to get moving after a long day at the desk. A fast 4-mile treadmill run in 31:30 (including 5 minutes of walking) was a sweaty way to warm-up for my date with Fran.
Fran is a classic CrossFit benchmark WOD, meaning it’s used to measure your progress. My first official WOD at my new box was “Messed Up Fran” on September 13th, so I had an idea what I was getting myself into; I’ve never done the original WOD, so I was still a little anxious for my date tonight. Unfotrunatly, I can’t compare the two WOD times, as the first included running, but I did make an improvement on the thrusters: 45lbs. to 55lbs. #progress
An intense workout meant a reason to celebrate Halloween in adult fashion (and cross another item off my bucket list).
Did you celebrate the holiday today?
CrossFit friends, are you a fan of Fran?
