Life Lately: Some Updates

My planner reminded me of a depressing point last week.

Ugh. You’re right, Nancy. My planner’s name is Nancy. Nancy is a name that sounds like someone who has her sh*t so together, she can help me with mine.

Anyway. We embarked on a Whole30 for June. I’m a little timid in taking about it, because historically whenever I talk a lot about my Whole30 on the blog, it jinxed it and I end up face first in a Safeway vanilla sheet cake. So far it’s going really well, because Hulk is doing it with me! You may now all pick your jaws up on the floor. Yes, my beer-brewing, “elimination diets are pointless”-viewed husband is doing a Whole30 with me for support. It’s been great trading off meals and having someone else volunteer ideas for “what’s for dinner.” And breaking out our matching LaCroix on the back patio Friday nights instead of the usual beer has a good vein of solidarity to it that keeps me from caving to certain hoppy brewed temptations.

One good note is that our Home Chef dinners are pretty simple to modify.

I just check all of the spices and sauces and replace the sugar and dairy for stuff we have on hand. For example, the Cole slaw last night called for sugar, so I used the juice of a clementine instead. Gave it a great citrus-y kick!

Also for June, my goal is to get outside more. So Squish and I had a little beach date Saturday morning. 

We went to Half Moon Bay. It was chilly, but clearly comfortable enough to to roll around repeatedly in the sand. He even got me to help him play “Construction” with his trucks, pushing them up and down the dunes. We left sandy and satisfied.

I’m still taking CrossFit easy. I had an amazing therapeutic massage on my hamstrings Tuesday, but I’m still feeling a bit off. I did the WOD yesterday and it took me a good 10 minutes into the workout to really feel warmed up and ready to go. I think I just need to take more time to warm up, to come to the gym early and get the process started sooner. Ugh, it’s terrible to get old, I tell ya.

That’s the update for now. Go make it a great day!

One thought on “Life Lately: Some Updates

  1. Yay for spouse participation! My husband is doing the Whole30 (other than drinking on the weekends)… and his first week they had free donuts, water ice, and hoagies at his work. I was so proud of him for staying strong. I’m feeling so great already on Day 9!

    I definitely like to arrive at the gym 10-15 mins early and do some stretching and mobility work. It just feels better!
