Back at it...again....times a million

I feel like I've said this so many times. Starting over! So excited! This time I am serious!

Fuck that. This time I'm not going to get so crazy about it. I am just going to go with the flow and try not to put too much pressure on myself. No time lines. No countdowns. Just doing it and getting it done

Today's workout:
3x5 Romanian Dead Lifts: 75/85/95

10 minutes (every minute on the minute)
2 power cleans @ 115#

20 minutes AMRAP
10 kb swings @ 35#
10 push ups
10 calories on the rower

I stood on the boy's side. I didn't realize there were sides until I was looking around the other day and noticed that all the girls always stand off to one side while the guys are on the other--with me right in the middle of them. Guys don't bullshit or feel the need to talk to each other between sets. It's nice. It's what I like.

Winter blues

Dear winter,

While your snow is fun to watch as it floats effortlessly down towards the earth...you are possibly the most annoying season ever. I will give you a few reasons as to why:

1. Static. Nothing is more annoying than blow drying your hair to perfection and have it cling to fucking everything two minutes later. Why yes, 'electroshock chic' is precisely the look I was going for today.

2. Clothing. Now, being a fatty who loves to hide in baggy clothing...I've finally come to realize that it's not a good work look. Warm-work appropriate clothing is expensive. And itchy. And dull. I want my colorful summer clothes back.

3. Ice. I want to be able to walk out to my car, full force; like a lion going after its prey--no hesitation. I don't like waddling with my hands out to the side for balance, praying that I wont slip and fall.

4. Depression. There's nothing like seeing dead trees with a dreary grey backdrop that makes me want to live life to the fullest. It makes me want to go home, cry to myself, and stuff myself with chocolate covered caramel popcorn. And watch lots and lots of trashy Bravo reality TV. Dem housewives be cray...

Here's the hoping spring comes quick. I dont know how much longer I can take.

Meat-Crust Quiche

Meat crust...sounds appealling doesn't it? If you know me, then you know that I am not kidding. All foods should come with a meat crust. #truth

Anywho. Here is another one from PaleOMG.com. I love that woman. In a complete foodie kind of way.


1lb of sausage (I used sweet italian sausage--without the casing)
1 small sweet potato
1/2 yellow onion
2 cups of fresh spinach
5 eggs, whisked
1 garlic clove
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp ground paprika (just realized that I read this wrong and used 1/2 tsp...came out just fine)
salt & pepper
2 tablespoon of fat (I used bacon fat)

Take your meat and spread it out into your pie pan. Make sure to push it up along the edges just like you would a regular crust. 

Pop it in the 375 preheated oven for about 10 minutes to let it cook a bit. Doesn't have to cook all the way.

While its cooking, get your frying pan ready. Put in your fat of choice and add in your onions, garlic and sweet potato. I chopped up my sweet potato to small cubes so that they would cook faster. 

Cook down until your onions are translucent and your potatoes are tender. Now add in your spinach and let them cook down. It may seem like a lot but they will wilt down to nothing. 

Take the pan off the heat and let the mixture cool. Take your meat crust out of the oven.

In a large bowl, whisk together your eggs, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add in your vegetable mixture and mix together.

Pour over the meat crust. It may go over the crust...that's fine. 

Throw it back in the oven and let it cook! Mine was in there for about 25 minutes but keep an eye on it. If you touch the egg mixture and it bounces back, it is good to go!

Probably one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. And I've made some seriously unhealthy and absurdly delicious breakfasts before.
