You should have seen the meal I put together for my family Sunday night. I WISH I had taken a picture, because I was so proud.
I made an arm roast in the pressure cooker (with one of the grassfed calf cuts in our freezer), ratatouille with eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes from our CSA from a Cooks Illustrated recipe, and braised cabbage from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint cookbook.
Even baby girl got in on the beef. But instead of the eggplant and cabbage, we steamed an acorn squash for her. She loves beef. Both of my kids do!
The boys and I also enjoyed an ice cold Topo Chico and conversation with our meal.
Ahhhh… it was worth working in the kitchen half of the day. You know, I think I actually LIKE cooking.
Shocking, I know.
Despite the cooking and all of the other work I did Sunday, I was feeling really good after the kids went to bed. I decided to throw in a quick workout, since Monday I’ll be resting ahead of Crossfit Total.
10 deadhang negative pullups
400 single jump rope swings / 35 double unders
5 rounds (1 min rest in between)
5 DB deadlifts
5 DB hang cleans
5 DB push press
5 DB squats
Time: 7:56 @ 25#
Those negatives are getting easier. I’m even able to hold at the top a lot better than I could before. And I’m determine on those double unders. One day I will be able to knock them out as easily as I do single swings.
