Never Again!

Yesterday, Rina came home from the Squash Club (she was with Ben at a tournament) with a small bag of Cheetos. It’s been a while since we had that kind of junk food in the house and I craved it immediately. I asked Ben to get us a bag as a treat after the girls would go to bed. We ate the whole bag last night.

This morning, during the warm-up, I felt like puking, I was huffing and puffing and the Ring Rows were my arch nemesis. Not to mention the profusion of sweat. I managed 60# on the slow power clean + Front Squat, but I need to remember to stay on my heels more. I’m thinking it might be time to invest in a pair of lifting shoes or at least, more neutral ones than my runners… I totally scaled the WOD too. I had to go TG all the way. It wasn’t pretty, but I made it through with a time of 6:17. Ugh! Never again will I binge like that on empty food. I made up for it today with a healthy peanut butter/homemade jam toast this morning, the Apple Butternut Squash soup for lunch with a kale salad and tonight will be leftovers Lentil Dal on a bed of spinach!

The rest of today will be spent resting. Rina is tired from her weekend at the squash club and I’m beat from this morning’s WOD. There is still a load of laundry to be folded once it’s dry and I think I’ll have a little nap on the couch when the girls go for theirs. I clearly noticed the tremendous effect nutrition can have on your physical performance and
