So I’ve kind of bored myself by talking about Whole 30 so much… Therefore, in my bid to stop overthinking and to make things a liiittle more interesting, instead of doing a WIAW today I thought I’d recap yesterday. Because yesterday was a great day and a little bit of positivity wouldn’t go a miss around here.
Before I begin, however, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to those of you who left such lovely and reassuring comments on Monday’s post. It really meant a lot. Another reason why I love this community – being so easily understood by people who just seem to know what’s up!
Anyhow, yesterday. Why was it great?
Firstly, it kicked off with a CrossFit session (shocker, I know). But this was better than any old CrossFit session as it was full of my favourite things:
– Warm up run + 20 burpees (okay, so burpees aren’t exactly my favourite…)
– 5 rounds: 20 mountain climbers, 10 sumo deadlift kettlebell high pulls
– Deadlift technique
– WOD: 50-40-30-20-10 of deadlifts (40kg) and air squats. This was AWESOME.
– Run (same loop as warm up) and foam rolling. Then I did a little work on my ankle flexibility because it sucks.
Great thing of the day number two. After my shower I put on a dress that I haven’t worn in a while… When I looked in the mirror I actually went ‘woah’, it was way looser. Now, this dress used to be a bit of a ‘booby’ (!) dress but now it is far more…appropriate! It was definitely a happy/sad moment. Sad as I always find change a little upsetting but happy because I know my body must be getting healthier.
Thirdly, it was Day 15 – a.k.a. halfway – of Whole 30. And that is all I shall say on the matter.
Fourthly, I got to meet the lovely Claire of Flake & Cake for lunch in Wholefoods! If you don’t yet know Claire, head over and check out her blog – it’s awesome. She writes about her love for running, her journey through various dietary changes in response to her allergies (an eye opening read) and her adorable hamster Meeko, amongst other adventures! We chatted about all things paleo, food, allergies, blogging, running, CrossFit, friends, work and life! She was even more wonderful than I had hoped 🙂 Like I said earlier, it is just so incredible and inspirational to be able to connect with people who think about their health in a similar manner to how you do. Plus, it’s always good to not be the only one taking a photo of your lunch…
Wholefoods salad bar obviously added to the greatness… Well, I say salad bar, they had put all the bits we wanted behind a counter so we managed to confuse the poor lady behind with our multiple selections all in the same box 😉
As did this haul of goodies… Though I must say I think I was pretty restrained!
And great thing number five? Curling up on the sofa with coconut yoghurt and watching Footloose (the newer one).
This totally is how I dance…
All in all, truly a great day. Breathing happy.
What’s one great think from your week? Have you met up with any other bloggers?
