day twenty-four

So, today’s workout included determining our maximum capacity for the shoulder press, push press, and the push jerk:

And just let me say, whenever we do this sort of work, which relies heavily on arm strength, I feel exactly like this:

As I write this, the almond butter — the perky little jar that I’ve nearly decimated in three days — haunts me. I WANT TO EAT IT ALL. Whereas three days ago I was thrilled with my discovery of its delicious goodness, I now lament my bad fortune. Oh, that I never tasted the small sweetness of it!

Breakfast:
[7:30]
one egg scrambled with mushrooms and yellow peppers
tea + almond milk

Lunch:
[12:00]
last of the leftover chicken salad (w/ peppers, celery, and avocado)
one small apple with a blob of almond butter (I had to resist [RESIST!! that is, leave the house before I acted upon] the urge to eat that shit out of the jar with a spoon. What is wrong with me?)

Dinner:
[4:30]
leftover grilled chicken breast reheated in the pan with some olive oil, onion, yellow pepper, and half a zucchini
tea + almond milk

(Insert interlude of additional chaos, wherein we take one of the cats to the emergency vet for a RUPTURED ANAL GLAND. Man, I live a glamorous life.)

Snack:
[8:00]
smoothie made out of frozen pineapple, frozen strawberries, coconut milk, and about a teaspoon of honey
[I ate it in a bowl with a spoon — it was more of a frozen yogurt consistency — and I realized that I haven’t eaten much that is like a treat or dessert since the beginning of this eating madness. I enjoyed it so much I experienced a little brain freeze.]

WOD: warm-up of 5 rounds: 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats, 20 hollow rocks. Then, 3 rep max of shoulder press (75#) and push press (95#); 1 rep max of push jerk (110#).

  1. Then you should NEVER try coconut butter (stay far, far away from Artisana’s heavenly products) or cashew butter. OMG.

  2. Ohhh. Well, I used to eat peanut butter toast like it was going out of style, so I figure any nut-butter is going to make me drool. πŸ™‚

    … or I may have to try them. And by try them, I do mean buy a jar, eat the whole jar over a ridiculously short period of time (a day, say), and THEN stay far far away. πŸ™‚
