Smoothie Mustache

Happy Hump Day! Today is an awesome day. We have fabulous weather here in NC and it is ahhmaaaziiing.
Daiquiri's for breakfast anyone? Oh wait, that is just my breakfast smoothie. It was delish and seriously made me wish I was on a beach some where!

The Little man enjoyed his too! The joke is on him because there is spinach in there and he doesn't even know! I swear unless it is completely hidden the kid can spot a green vegetable a mile away!



A little later in the morning we worked out with our Stroller Strides friends and then celebrated St. Patty's Day with a craft and some Leprechaun Loot. Inspired by this confetti popcorn I decided to add a little bling to my rice krispie treats with a sprinkle of Leprechaun dust. These green krispie treats with almonds and gold sugar were a big hit with the moms and the kiddos.

Before I am forced to stop procrastinating and start packing let's talk workouts.

Last night I did my first solo CrossFit workout and I am pumped to keep at it now that I am on my own. I did 

5 RFT of 
10 Deadlift 95 lbs
8 Burpees
6 Dips (I modified to feet on box instead of ring dips because we don't have rings at home)

My time was 5 mins and 50 secs. I was feeling a little bit slow, but I don't think I ate enough during the day and my energy was low. I will have to do it again in a few weeks and see how the time compares. We got these great books as part of our CrossFit class. They contain a lot of cool stuff including all of the core CrossFit workouts, how to's for some of the core lifts, and sections to keep track of your WOD's and diet.


I am planning on joining the CrossFit gym near my parents so I can keep up with CF while we are travelling. 

Are any of you into CrossFit? Or just getting started like me? I would love to hear about your experiences.  I am following all of the CF Games Open workouts and can't wait for the actual games to start! Who is your favorite CF athlete? Did you notice Reebok and CrossFit have linked up? What do you think?

I have got to run, my suitcases are calling....
