You guys I am so excited about the CrossFit Open. 16.1 has just been announced and looks like 20 mins of crazy – I love it. For those out there who CrossFit, you know exactly what I am on about! And for those who don’t, lets just say I am going to need my engine tomorrow! Phew!
Are you one of those people who get excited about things that scare you? In this instance I definitely am, but I sure aint one of those folks who get a rush from jumping off the side of a building or out of a plane. Maybe I just have a ‘safety scare’ limit – the things that scare you but deep down you know will be ok and can therefore get excited about.
You know what else excites me? Writing my ‘Friday Favourites’ post! It always cheers me up with good positive vibes for the weekend and I hope it does for you too!
Without further ado…
Favourite… Moment – Summer Salt Market
Feeling the sea breeze, the summer sun, listening to great live music whilst sitting beside and chatting to your hubby – it was such a delight!
Favourite… Feeling – Excitement
See above re – the CrossFit Open! I think after writing and posting my piece yesterday ‘Let your passion be your guide’ I have a whole new mind set going into this. And it makes everything a whole lot more fun.
Favourite… Purchase – Tomato Ketchup
Ah I have missed my favourite condiment! With all the nasties in the regular one I have stayed away… but then I found this beauty in our local supermarket. No sugar, no nasties, simple whole ingredients – perfect! And right now, to make up for lost time, it’s going on everything!
Favourite… Food/Drink – Strawberry Jam
Speaking of old favourites… I love jam… but avoided it due to the sugar and nasties etc etc. How on earth did I forget about the range of St Dalfour jams!? I had these jams growing up but completely forgot about them. Ingredients – strawberries, grape and date juice, fruit pectin and lemon juice. Amazing! And they have the full range of flavours in Australia! Winning!
Favourite… Recipe – Anything… with cottage cheese on top
Another food addiction of mine right now is cottage cheese – and I’m adding it to anything and everything. I eat it savoury predominately and just take whatever meal I am having a lump a chunk on top. So good and also adds a chunk of protein to my meals – win win!
Favourite… Workout – New 3RM Back Squat
This week was tough, and the addition of tomorrow makes it a 5 WOD week – eeep!
But the best part of my training this week was a new 3RM back squat at 47.5kg. I wasn’t aiming to PR but it felt good. I definitely think I have 50kg in me though for sure.
Weekend Plans – The Open tomorrow morning along with recovery, the weekly shop and froyo. Sunday we are meeting with friends for breakfast and a beach walk! Funzies!
Have a wonderful weekend folks! And good luck if you are doing 16.1!
Linking up with Heather over @LifeInLeggings for a whole host of Friday fun!
Do you have a ‘safety scare’ limit?
What is your favourite toast topper?
Do you have an item, like cottage cheese, that you literally add to everything?
