Woke at 4:15am my working day waking time. Could not get back to sleep:( (0)
I’ve had a very productive couple weeks but that means I’ve been in get-it-done mode and now I’m having a hard time turning it off.
So I got up and began loading yesterday’s nutrition talks to youtube. Ate breakfast while I worked. It’s kind of funny because we live in a small one bedroom apartment. Sunghee & I have the bedroom and Kaelin has the living room which opens on the kitchen. So in order not to wake them I set up in the front hallway just in front of the bathroom door with my laptop, camera and breakfast spread. Luxury.
Salmon with salsa, berries & coconut milk, Taskmaster’s blueberries, cranberry juice (+2)
They were still sleeping when I headed to work. After last night’s rain it was a cool Vancouver morning. Refreshing. And grateful it stopped in time for my walk to work. On my way up Dunbar Street I stopped into Stong’s for cleaning supplies. (-1)
Today’s group classes faced a monster CrossFit WOD in Fight Gone Worse and everyone stepped up. Very proud of how everyone soldiered through. Hard Rock, Dr.T, Magnum & Dangers even did it RX’d! Dangers took down my score completing 42 wallballs @20# unbroken. Magnum did the same but beat even The Touch’s great score being the only person to finish with a sub-30 minute score! Great work guys!
Dr. T’s boys Showtime & Fastfeet hit a team WOD with Waterboy.
I had an hour between classes and the Weighlifting to get through some work and squeeze in a meal. Due to time constraints I had to eat breakfast & lunch at the same time or else starve later. Not ideal.
Breakfast 2 & Lunch 1
Chicken with salsa, berries & coconut milk, chicken burger & salmon with coleslaw, berries & coconut milk
Olympic bronze medalist Christine Girard came in to teach the snatch & clean & jerk. A great time as always, I think everyone left with something. For me she suggested a wider grip on the clean and it felt much stronger. Didn’t lift heavy today. Worked with Kyle Friesen of Fuel Your Performance and we stayed at around 125# less than 50% of our 1rpm but a good weight for developing technique. (-2)
Sunghee picked me up after the 2pm class. She had dropped Kaelin off for a sleepover at a school friend’s place. To describe him as excited would be a gross understatement.
We of course had a free date night and would have been excited if I wasn’t so damn exhausted. Non-stop for 11 hours without a break!
Went home and ate.
Chicken burger & coleslaw, berries & coconut milk
Finally had a shower! And then passed out on the floor in my underwear. Felt like I slept forever. The clock said about 10 minutes. Too tired to think.
Asked Sunghee to decide what we should do. She thought going out to eat would be a good idea if I hadn’t just eaten a late lunch. I said I was ready to eat again. She wanted somewhere close so we drove to The Kitchen a Korean restaurant on 10th & Sasamat that Dangers recommended.
It was great! Real home-style Korean food. Haven’t had that quality since Kimchee Nara in Richmond closed.
After dinner we walked along 10th for a bit reminiscing about old days. When we first met and started dating 18 years ago Sunghee and her sister were living at 10th & Blanca so we spent some time at the local coffee shops ate restaurants though few of those remain. But the sweet memories linger. (-1)
We returned home stopping at IGA on the way. Had to have dessert. Sunghee chose gluten-free cheesecake, I went for several helpings of quinoa granola.
An early bedtime.
