Lookie… here comes cookie

There’s something about the holidays that puts me in the baking mood.

Last week I whipped up 3 batches of my famous gingerbread muffins for Luke’s teachers and some friends (I already told you how I devoured one after a run Saturday).

Well, on Tuesday I was back to baking.  And despite it taking 4 hours to make muffins and a batch of cookies because my lovely daughter just had to be held most of the morning, both glutenous dishes turned out beautifully.

The cookies — especially — are sinfully delicious.

No, I don’t eat such delectables most of the time, but I love baking, and it’s Christmas.  I don’t really feel like I need to justify eating cookies every once in a while, but if you’re wondering where my thought process comes from, I love this post from the folks at Whole9 about eating dirty.

It’s not like I didn’t workout today  I had a private training session with one of the Crossfit Central coaches: Jen Cardella.  It was great!  Here’s what we did:

500m row
5 rounds “Cindy” (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats)
25 box jumps (I did some jumping work to conquer my fear)
25 KB swings (I used 1 pood)

Muscle Up
Kipping Pull up

Hang Power Clean

On the hang power clean, I ended up lifting 85# — a PR! — and attempting 90#, but I just didn’t have it.

Jen told us that the I AM workout will be the same as last year — run, pull ups and hang power cleans.  Now that I know what to expect, I’m both relieved and dreading it.  The workout was a killer for me last year, and I barely finished it.  I definitely will be mulling over this one for a while.

On Tuesday evening I decided to workout with Andy and blow off some steam.  I’ve been feeling some significant stress lately, and I needed to let go.  So we did:

4 rounds
400 m run
20 KB swings (25# plate)
15 Box jumps (on hill)
10 Burpees
5 Handstand push ups

Cutoff: 20 minutes
Finished: 3 rounds + 400m run + 3 swings

If I had not been some slow in the transitions, I might have gotten closer to finishing, but I can’t stand the feel of mulch on my hands and clothes, and I got it all over me on the burpees.

After it was all over… I went inside and ate a cookie.
