What's for lunch? Delicata squash w/ Brussel sprouts and green fried plantain


I bought this delicata squash at Walmart 2 weeks ago and it has been seating on my counter waiting waiting waiting to be eaten. Today was the day. My lunch options were pretty grimm, as I really need to do some grocery shopping for some fresh veggies. 
I went on a scavenging hunt in my fridge and found a pack of frozen Brussel sprouts. There was a semi-green plantain in the pantry and some grape seed oil. 
I fried the plantain in a little bit of the grapeseed oil. Drizzled the oil over the sprouts and the squash and seasoned with salt and pepper. I broiled them on low till the squash and the sprouts were tender.
This is my lunch today. I'm saving the other half for later.

The Crunchy Crossfitters at the Spartan Workout Tour 2014Marietta &Extreme Rush Apparel Review

The Spartan Workout Tour came to Marietta and Three of us from Crossfit Etowah's 
On-Ramp to Crossfit Bootcamp decided to give it a shot. If you are thinking on participating but haven't decided yet let me tell ya, stop over thinking and JUST DO IT! 

Here's the link to the 2014 Workout Tours.

The workout takes 2 hours and you WILL NOT stop moving during those 2 hours.
There is no gym equipment involved, all you need is your body, a towel and water! 
We did sprints, running in place, squats, jumping squats, jumping jacks, push ups, staggered push-ups, Burpees, planks, great vine steps, skater steps, leg lifts/flutter kicks and a couple more. 
A lot of emphasis on Core strengthening exercises. For active recovery between periods of intense workout we did jogging in place, planks and jumping jacks. 

The weather was not great, it sprinkled the whole time we were there and the pavement was very wet and somewhat slippery. Still, I had fun and felt accomplished to having finished the WOD.

A huge THANKS goes to Extreme Rush Apparel , who supplied our performance workout clothing. Even in the wet weather their performance clothing kept wicking the water and sweat away from my skin. I had a "Training for a Spartan" shirt on top of the performance shirt and while the spartan shirt was soaked, the performance material kept my skin pretty dry. 

Even though I had water dripping down my legs from the rain and being on the ground repeatedly, the performance capris did the same as the shirt wicking moisture away from skin and drying super fast. 
Oh and they truly move and stretch with you, they don't ride down, are awesome for squats, no chaffing while running and super comfortable. I finally found my favorite pair of capris for running events, will definitely be wearing these on my next race.

You can find the ERA performance shirt here:

Specs:
  • Slim fit flexible v-neck that move with your body to give you complete freedom of motion without restrictions.
  • Extremely soft and comfortable so you can focus on your training.
  • Wicks away moisture and prevent odor causing bacteria.
  • Tag less print to prevent skin irritation.
  • 84% Polyester/16% Spandex
Find the ERA performance Capris here: 

Specs:
  • High quality performance fabric to keep you cool and dry during your extreme workouts.
  • Wicks away moisture and prevent odor causing bacteria.
  • Flat lock stitch to prevent chaffing.
  • Tag less print to prevent skin irritation.
  • 16" inseam.
  • 84% Nylon/16% Spandex
Lillian, me, and Lorena at the event. We wore our spartan shirts on top of the performance shirts.


Ps: it sucks to wear glasses in the rain, I couldn't see a thing while it was raining.


Lorena & Lillian got to meet Amanda Sullivan and Todd Love , Spartan Athletes, motivators and an inspiration to us all.




I started this journey a year ago to loose weight.  But goals change and now I train to become stronger. My current most immediate goal is build up the stamina to be able to run a half marathon, but the Spartan Sprint is definitely a goal to be mastered in the horizon. 

Have a happy healthy crunchy green day :-)

Latest 5K runs, events and routines for July and August

Wow, can't believe we're approaching the end of August already. It's been hectic and I'm still adjusting to new schedules.

 My 5 yr old started kindergarten at the beginning of the month, and the 3 yr old is still home with me. It gets hectic with school, homework, taekwondo and On-Ramp to Crossfit Bootcamp time.

I earned my July's Get Out and Run metal by participating in the Woodstock Freedom Run on July 4th. That was a 5K in Downtown Woodstock, my chip time was 31:08, I'm striving to improve my running time with every race.  The kids loved watching the parade afterwards. The run was sponsored by Pinacle Orthopaedics, I had my elbow surgery there last year when I was dealing with olecranon Bursitis (that's another blog post).




The Run for Wounded Heroes 5K benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project followed on August 2nd. I irritated my patella tendon during Bootcamp two days before the race. Had to get a shot on the knee the day before, iced it really good that day and wore a patella strap the day of the race. I was pretty sure I would not beat my previous time. Surprised myself with a 29:45 chip time.



September will be a fun month. I'm running the Labor Day Be Your Own Hero 10K . I'm hoping to beat my previous time of 1:21. will also participate in the Spartan WOD that's coming to town at the end of the month. Will let y'all know how that goes.

Stew meat, Asparagus and yellow zucchini - Paleo/Whole30

Here it is, today's yummy supper. The yellow zucchini is from my garden, sautéed with grape seed oil along w/ the asparagus and seasoned with salt and pepper.
I browned the stew meat first then added chopped carrots, celery and green pepper from the garden. Then added 2 cans of chicken broth and garlic. Once the meat was tender I added the spuds and some water to cover. Covered and cooked till the taters were done. 
Simple and tasty.

Dinner time, the Paleo way.

This was dinner last night. Quick and easy. Paleo and whole30 compliant.
I cooked sweet potatoes and seasoned them with salt, pepper and ghee.
The green beans were seasoned with vinegar, salt and pepper.
The beets were served plain.
For the protein I used a very thin steak, simply browned first on a skillet with grape seed oil and then I added steak seasonings and some h2o and covered to get it tender.

How much protein should you consume per day?


Do you know how many grams of protein you are supposed to consume daily? 


Here's a bit of info on that subject that I read the other day on a newsletter from Coach Matt from WOD Nation.

Basically you need .8 grams per kg of body weight.
1 lb = 0.453 kg
So say you weigh 135 lbs multiply by 0.453kg is roughly 61 kg
61 kg multiplied by .8 g is roughly 48 grams of protein.

I hope this helps.

Have a happy and healthy crunchy green day :-)

Quick and easy Paleo dinner: raw veggies topped with meat sauce.

Quick and easy Paleo dinner for today.
Chopped organic lettuce
Sliced green pepper
Sliced red pepper
Sliced organic carrot
Top with thick meat sauce.

I make the meat sauce by cooking a lb of ground beef in a large pot. 
Add garlic, red and green pepper, Italian seasonings, salt and pepper.
Add a 29oz can of kroger tomato sauce, add a little bit of water, stir and cover.
Simmer for a while till sauce cooks down to your liking.
Pour that stuff on everything from eggs to salads.

Mobility Workshop- Posterior & Anterior Chains + Shoulder Complex

We had a Mobility Workshop tonight taught by Crossfit Etowah's coach Jeff Rice.
It covered Posterior and Anterior Chains and the shoulder complex.  

We warmed up doing dynamic stretches which consisted of Walking Toe touches, Figure 4, Knee Hugs and Quad Pulls. You can do these by walking from one side of the room to the other and back. It was so nice outside we did them in the parking lot.



Do two rounds of each stretch and try to hold it for 30 seconds.

After Warm up we moved onto working on the Posterior Chain.

Posterior Chain
Start your way from the bottom up, so you would start with stretching out your calves and hamstrings first.
1- 90 Degree stretch
2- Figure 4
3- Knee hug
4- Bicycle stretch
5- Plow stretch
 Anterior Chain
1- Cobra Stretch
2- Butterfly stretch
3- Sprinters

First National Festivus Games- My first competition.

On Saturday April 19 2014 I participated in my first Crossfit competition; the first national Festivus Games. It's a competition designed for Novice and Intermediate Crossfit athletes. I competed at the beginner level. 

I was super nervous going into this. Started exercising back in June of 2013 and haven't looked back. Ran my first 5k in February and decided to sign up for the Festivus. I cannot do double unders yet, or a pull up without either a weight assist machine or a band, plus at the time of signing up I had not done power cleans. I can finally manage to do a box jump onto a 1 foot box but anything higher is a step up. 
So I mustered up the courage and signed up for the novice division.

It was so much fun and I'm so thankful for all the support and encouragement from my hubby, friends, fellow athletes  and my awsome coaches from Crossfit Etowah.
Crossfit Sting in Alpharetta Ga hosted the games for my immediate area.

I started the day at 5:30 a.m. Ate a portion of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, broccoli and chicken tenderloins and my morning coffee.

We were still on the road at 7:30, I had a banana and h2o.
Around 8 a.m I mixed a scoop of Carnivor protein powder with h2o and had that.
First WOD started at 9:00 a.m

WOD#1: 1,000m Row for time w/ 6 min time cap (4:14.4)
This was grueling, my legs were shaking by the time I was done. 

WOD#2: Establish 1 rep max clean in 6 min (Started at 45, then 50, then 60 lbs)
This is the WOD that scared me the most since I had not done cleans before. My coaches thought me proper form and I was able to lift 45 lbs. At the competition I totally surprised myself, went up to 60lbs.

I ate another portion of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, broccoli and chicken tenderloins at 10:30 along with another scoop of my Carnivor protein in a bottle of h2o.
Third WOD started at 12:00 noon

WOD#3: 8 min As Many Rounds As Possible (3 rounds + 10 KBS=190 reps)
              10 kettle bell swings (26lbs) (40)
               20 sit ups (60)
               30 box overs (20 inch box) (90)
This was the easiest of all 4 WODS

Around 1 PM I ate my last portion of the chicken with broccoli, sweet taters and butternut squash along with h20.
Fourth WOD started at 2:00 p.m.

WOD#4: 2 minutes max Wallball (10 lbs) (32)
               2 minutes max single unders (255)
               2 minutes max Burpees (26)
                (313)
The wall balls were the hardest I think, by the end of 2 minutes it feels like you are trying to lift and hurl a baby elephant up in the air while trying to hit within the 6 foot mark. 

I can't do double unders, thank goodness us beginners were doing single unders. I had not skipped rope since I was little. I purchased an RxSmartGear jump rope a couple of weeks before the event and started practicing, its the same rope I took to compete with. The most I had ever gotten in the 2 minute mark during training was 209 reps, but was able to whip out 255 reps at the event. I was pretty pleased. The rope I used was the misfit mango spiral rope with buff translucent red cable. I love the grip on the spiral handles plus they're 1 inch thick and I feel like I have great control of the rope. As I get better at it and learn to do double unders I'll consider a lighter cable like the Elite or Ultra.

I'm very glad I did this. There's a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day, no I did not make it to the top 10 or 5 or whatever but I participated and had a ball doing it. To anyone who is thinking about entering these types of competitions, just do it, you'll be glad you did.

Coming up next month is the Greenprints Alliance 5k trail run in Woodstock Ga and the 5k ColorVibe run in Stone Mountain Village.
Can't wait to run those with my Crunchy Crossfitters team :-).

I'll leave you now with my overall ranking and pics from the Festivus.

Intermittent Fasting

I'm doing intermittent fasting twice a week now.
While reading up on it I came across this very well though out article by Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness and decided to share it here in case any of you are curious about it.
It explains the process better than I ever could. It is a A Beginners Guide to Intermittent Fasting.
There are different ways of going about it, pretty much whatever works for you. Whether is  a 16 hr fast twice a week or a 24 hr fast. 
For me personally the 16 hr + fast twice a week works best, as I eat my last big meal of the day at 4 p.m. then I'm off to On-Ramp to Crossfit Bootcamp  2 hours later.  After that my body is in fat burning mode till the next day.  I don't think about eating when I'm asleep, so it's a win win :-)
 During the fast period I just drink  black coffee or tea and H2O of course.
So read up and enjoy!

Have a happy healthy crunchy green day!

Curry chicken with purple sweet potato, jicama and beets. Whole30 Paleo.

#Whole30 Paleo meal idea. 
Purple sweet potato, Jicama, beets and curried chicken.

I wrapped the sweet potato and the jicama in foil and put it in the oven till the sweet potato was cooked. The chicken breast was a bone in whole breast which i seasoned with curry powder and baked in the oven at 350 for about 3 hrs.
I topped the sweet potato and jicama with Ghee. Yum!

Turmeric- Sprinkle it on!

I've been sick this week and today I remembered that Turmeric is good for colds. 
I sprinkled it on my eggs this morning and also used it in my coffee (inside the brew basket, on top of the ground coffee).
I did a little search and found out that it is used for a whole bunch of other illnesses as it is also an anti-inflamatory. 
Read on and sprinkle that spice on everything you can think of  :-)


According to WebMD:

 "Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomachbloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems.

Some people apply turmeric to the skin for pain, ringworm, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, inflammatory skin conditions, soreness inside of the mouth, and infected wounds."


Here is what Wikipedia says:

"Curcumin has been a centre of attraction for potential treatment of an array of diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, allergies, arthritis and other chronic illnesses."

Spinach banana chia smoothie #Paleo #Whole30

Spinach, banana, chia seeds, almond milk smoothie.

I felt like having a green smoothie tonight and this was the result. I made it very thick and creamy and it hit the spot. 
Used one Frozen cut up very ripe banana. I take the over ripe bananas, cut them up into individual sandwich baggies and freeze them. That way whenever I want a smoothie I just grab one Baggie = one banana.
This time I used enough frozen cut leaf spinach to fill the nutribullet. If you do not like a strong spinach taste just use less. I'm used to the taste of veggies in my green smoothies so used a lot of the green stuff :-)
The chia seeds went in next, a tablespoon's worth. Finally enough unsweetened almond milk to make the Bullet work. First I added about 1/2 cup but it wasn't enough. I had to stop it and add a bit more.
The over ripe banana gave it the right amount of sweetness, since I'm on the #Whole30 I can't use any sweetener. You could use pitted dates for sweetness too, I just didn't have any in the house this time.

Banana chia pudding experiment- #whole30 #paleo


I usually just use frozen bananas to make banana ice cream by just putting them in their frozen state in the nutribullet with a bit of coconut milk. 
Today I experimented with chia seeds. I had never used them before but heard that they gel up whatever liquid you put them in.
I took a cup of coconut milk, 1/2 cup fresh (not frozen) overripe banana and added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. Processed it to smooth consistency in the bullet and left it in the fridge to chill out for the rest of the day. 
The result was banana pudding.
I think next time I'll add blueberries and or strawberries.

Simple egg omelette - #whole30 #Paleo

Hey there fellow #Whole30 and #Paleo peeps. 
Breakfast was simple this morning. The hubs made me this egg and green pepper omelette, the green pepper is barely visible because he chopped it into very small pieces and most ended up along the center.
I served it on a lettuce leaf and seasoned with salt and pepper. 
Dotted it with mustard and chowed down!

Meat sauce stuffed lettuce boat #Whole30

I made my simple meat sauce today since I'm making chili for the kiddos and hubby.
As always, I reserved a bowl before I added the chili beans.  That way I can use the meat sauce on my veggies, eggs, salads etc.

First I browned 1 lb of ground beef and seasoned it with a tablespoon of minced garlic and chopped green pepper.  If I were to make spaghetti sauce I would add Italian seasonings, but since this one was destined for chili, I left those out.

I use two 15 oz cans of Krogers' tomato sauce, make sure you read the label, use one that does not have sugars added to it. 
I let it all simmer for a while and reserve a bowl of it before I added the beans.



I used the meat sauce to fill a nice big leaf of lettuce. This is a cross breed between romaine and iceberg and holds up pretty nicely. I chopped up some regular iceberg and added a generous amount of sauce to it.  Ate it like a taco, no utensils required.

Put some grape seed oil in a large pot. You can use whatever you have on hand: olive oil, coconut oil, etc.
Add everything except for avocado and yellow squash. Stir.
While those veggies cook a bit go find some protein and chop it up. I used Bacon, feel free to use chicken, turkey, steak, etc.
I added the uncooked chopped bacon to the veggies an let it cook a little bit more. 
Add your spices. I happen to have Badia brand Cuban Mojo marinade, so I added some of that.
Dump in the avocado and yellow squash, stir and add water.
Simmer covered till everything is nice and tender. 
Add salt to taste.




Voila! Enjoy a nice hot bowl of soup!
