I had a basket full of apples and bananas on my counter that were in desperate need of being eaten before going bad. Since today was food prep day, I decided to try something new. It turned out to be so Stellar!!!!! And so easy!
Sweet Crockpot Chicken: Throw all the following in a crockpot on high for 5 hours or low for 8 1 lb of boneless chicken breasts
1 chopped sweet potato
2 apples without skin
1 Tbsp natural Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp curry powder
( do not add water, it creates its own)
It was pretty exciting this evening, I received a message asking if I had seen the Overall results from my race a week ago. I knew the day of the race that I was 1st female overall in my heat, but I really wanted to see how I did overall.
I was 122 out of 1068. What is that? Like top 2%?
Not bad at all 🙂 I’ll take it!!
Within the last year of living in Korea, I have made this 13 hour journey four times. This is my last. I am officially leaving Korea for the last time. I have loved every minute of this experience, but I couldn’t be more excited about the journey that lies ahead!!
Today I completed the Reebok Super Spartan in the mountains of South Korea. It was absolutely, hands down the hardest race I have EVER taken part in. I loved every minute. I literally had to dig deep and go into that dark place to make my way up the mountain. As I made my way over the second 10ft wall, I was informed that I was the first female- that’s all I needed to hear. I wasn’t letting anyone pass me 🙂
Rucking-there is no better way to train for an off road, all terrain race. A 3-mile run followed by an hour hour and half of unbroken Rucking downtown, through the alleys and hitting every set of stairs along the way.
The Spartan Burpee Challenge is a challenge to complete 30 Burpees a day over a period of 30 days for an overall total of 900 Burpees. I agreed to take on the challenge and in true Spartan form, to complete the challenge within one week. I set a plan to complete 150 a day within a single workout for six days, allowing for one rest day. At the end of each session, I always felt I had to add an extra ten to push a little more. So on day six, I completed my usual 160 and decided to add 25 more since it was my last day:)
This morning while finishing up a 5K, I thought to myself..15 more would have been exactly 1000- Damn’t!! Needless to say that my run ended with 15 Burpees:)
(this was a question I received from an anonymous follower and wanted to share) Hi Tiffany, I have been following your blog since I ran across some of your youtube videos. I too participate in Crossfit. I sometimes catch shit for doing Crossfit and find at times I let it bother me. What do you think of people that bash the sport?
First of all, Thank you so much for following my blog:)
So…What do I think of Crossfit bashers? I really don’t think about it at all. It’s not worth my time.
There are ‘meat heads’ as they are called, that bash CrossFit, and there are Crossfitters that think CrossFit is Gods gift to sports. Personally, I think for anyone involved in the fitness industry to bash anyone’s choice of activity, shame on them.
Some people lift weights for mere appearance and could care less about their overall health ironically. There are people that can leg press 1200 LBS, but can’t run a mile in under 10 minutes to save their life. There are people that can walk 200M on their hands, but can’t squat an Oly Bar. There are people with past injuries that can’t participate in anything more strenuous than a brisk walk or a bike ride.
Point being, anything is better than nothing at all. Let the a$$holes look like a$$holes.
And…to you I say, with all do respect, suck it up buttercup:)
Who gives a s#!t what anyone thinks anyway. My friends that don’t participate in CrossFit give me hell constantly about being ‘gung-ho’ CrossFit and poke fun. I joke about it too. It’s all in good humor.
Besides, you and I both know it’s a BADASS sport 😉
Just do you my friend!
