A pepper within a pepper?
Saving seeds to see if they will grow -
I doubt it somehow - but we'll see!
Had 3 eggs before CrossFit yesterday.
I'll have mine with extra Vitamin D, please...
Right outside in the sun... it's 80 degrees in February!
Christopher Eggs with "eggstra" Omega 3. (link)
Got 'em at Krogers!
The yoke was golden orange.
Turns out that eating before class was a mistake.
Even 3 hours before.
Planks are good. Eggs are good.
But Planks and Eggs - not so much!
I have also weaned myself off of my afternoon coffee.
I had a mix of Yerba Mate with Green Tea prior to class, too.
I have this all the time now. So I know it didn't make me ill.
Bless Sam - our Trainer's heart.
Nearly everyone in our CrossFit class is over 40.
And most of us are women.
Lots of bathroom breaks - even during class!
400 meter run? Sure - no problem!
Give me one second...
So now instead of Monster drinks, Guarana and loads of coffee,
I have some tea... maybe with ginseng.
I like the Siberian Ginseng... Eleutherococcus Senticosus (link)
It's more of an adaptogen than a stimulant...
It's like magic - it just "knows" where to go and what to do
when it gets there.
My avg HR in CF was 110.
Max HR was 160.
So I went on through with it, even if it wasn't my best.
I think that is a key, somehow.
My ego (that egg-eating bastid)
is only happy when every effort is the best one ever.
After a while, that is not possible!
Sometimes, it's a total "win" to just make it through.
