In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the . Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon.
All this month, I’m committed to taking a 60-minute walk every day. Every damn day.
I’ve been doing more reading on my hormonal challenges and in addition to lifting heavy, the prevailing advice seems to be long, somewhat leisurely walks on a regular basis. I’m only halfway excited about this prospect. On one hand, walking on the trail around the lake in Austin is really pleasant, and it’s an opportunity to listen to good music, soak up vitamin D, and look at cute dogs. On the other hand, I desperately miss the camaraderie and un-pleasantness of CrossFit workouts. But there will be no more CrossFit workouts for me if I don’t fix my body. So walks, here I come!
This is my workout schedule for the week:
Sunday — walk 60:00
Oh! How I miss the “one hour and you’re done” approach of my CrossFit classes, but I’m grateful that my flexible schedule allows me to go on long walks and yoga. You should see how grateful I am right now. Such a (fake) smile on my face.
The craptastic was awesome, however.

Bought, Borrowed, Stolen
I asked for and received this book for Christmas and just started reading it now. It's one of those cookbooks that you read from cover to cover before cooking from it. The writing is killing me inside a little bit, it's so good. Just enough description to create vivid mental pictures and a snarky, delightful sense of humor. It's a world tour with personal accounts and recipes to recreate the travel experience in your own kitchen. You know that's one of my favorite things!.
