BURNED THE ZUCCHINI WHILE DREAMING OF CAKE

I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and made it into the gym yesterday.  Still not feeling great, but I didn't want to miss anymore workouts.  We started off with a bunch of exercises that activated our glutes.  Our backsides were definitely "warmed up" by the end.  Our WOD was 3 rounds of

* pulling a weighted sled down the alley and then back up the alley

* 2 minute AMRAP 5 burpees and 5 sit ups

We were in groups of three.  It took our group 28 minutes and 2 seconds to complete this WOD.  I believe we were definitely the slowest of the groups.  That's ok though, we all got a great workout.  Two of the girls in my group are brand spankin' new.  It was nice not to be the new girl who didn't know what to do.  Last time I did the sleds I put 45 lbs on it.  Yesterday I used 85 lbs.  It was hard and it kicked my rear, but it was totally doable. 

Today I'm getting ready to go clean my brother's house and then I'll be getting in a run before the kids get home from school.  Tomorrow I'm going to crossfit and afterwards my mother and I are hiking Mineral Ridge....the 3.3 mile hike.  After that I'll be baking up a couple apple pies for my husband's birthday party. 

I found out yesterday that our Paleo challenge at crossfit will start Sept. 23rd and go through Oct. 25th.  I'm super excited to get on board and going 100% Paleo for 32 consecutive days.  It'll end just a few days away from my trip to Boise to visit my sister and our 5K run. 

By the way, the title of this post is what happened yesterday.  While pan frying my zucchini yesterday I lost track of time as I was looking at pictures of cake on the computer.  My food addiction still feels very much alive.
