Hello. My name is Cindy. I am a sugar addict.
I can back from “vacation” with a goal to eat fairly clean and get off the sugar until Luke’s birthday party. AT LEAST. Oh my. What good intentions.
It started Tuesday with a lunch seminar at Maggiano’s. I shunned the pasta, yet ate some of the ice cream off of a dessert. Then, after a crazy Wednesday, I told Andy it was either wine or chocolate, so he chose chocolate. And on Thursday… oh Thursday. Andy and I had lunch and decided to walk into a place at Arbor Walk.
They had samples.
I was hooked. This is what I had:
Oh Tootie Pies, why did you tempt me with such delicious samples?
This is a horrible photo of the slice of chocolate pecan pie I ate, which was carefully presented on a place with whipped cream and chocolate sauce art.
I am sooooooooo glad this place is not in an area I frequent. Because it was delicious.
Sigh. Oh well. My motto has always been that if you’re going to eat sugar, it should be quality stuff — not crap.
I’m not sure Thursday’s workout even came close to making up for it.
Hang Squat Clean
I focused on form rather than weight for this strength session. The heavy cleans were difficult to master. Steph and I were working together, and it was great because she was pointing out areas where I needed improvement. I can’t wait to take the Oly class she’s doing.
Results: 2 rounds + jump rope + 17 box jumps in 12 minutes
It was 3 singles for every double, but I made at least 10 double under attempts each round. And guess what! I succeeded most of the time! I’m still working on my double unders, but I am proud that I have improved a lot. It’s starting to click for me, and I’m going to work on them a lot more — not becuase I have something to prove, but because they’re just kind of fun.
Did I just write double unders are fun?
