I wish I felt like saying more right now or telling you all about my weekend at Gym Jones, but I just don’t have it in me for some reason. Hopefully tomorrow! Today’s workout was quick, but fun. I have practiced rope climbs quite a bit, but have not actually done any in a workout before, so it was fun to go fast. Of course our ropes are not very high, so it doesn’t take long to get to the top… if I jump, I’m half way there (kinda!). J and I were neck in neck until I F’d up on my last set of double unders and he beat me by a couple seconds. Boys need their ego in tact anyway, so it’s probably a good thing 😉
I’m working harder on my recovery this week. I’m trying to eat cleaner (which mostly means having better food choices on hand, especially at the gym because I usually get hungry there, and abstaining from my chocolate covered almonds). I am trying to get plenty of ice baths in (thank goodness for warm sunny days in the OC), and to get to bed at an earlier time. It is all too easy for me to think up reasons why I should eat a few chocolate almonds or skip an ice bath or stay up a little later. These things in isolation every once in a while are not that big a deal, but it all adds up, and I know myself. If I am lenient in one area, I start to give way in others. I’m not trying to be crazy, but to keep in mind that there are things I want more than chocolate almonds, and I could practice learning to sacrifice some things (I realize chocolate is a lame example, but you get the idea). I’m just trying to take care of myself so that I can be my best. That’s all.

Photo Comment: My shopping cart at TJ’s yesterday… good stuff. For some reason I bought 12 avocados. I ate 2 of them today, so I think I’ll make it through them alright 🙂
