But apparently I forgot I had a website to maintain. The CrossFit Open 2018 flew by, I got my first ever handstand pushup.. but not just 1… I did like 6 or 7 or them. It’s been so long that I don’t even remember, but I did it, and I’ll probably never do those again. (195ish lbs upside down on my spine and head just wasn’t what I was meant to do..)
We went snowboarding out in Colorado after Texie passed away. I had purchased new bindings before we left, which Dave installed for me on my old board, but then I won a new snowboard at a raffle, and she’s absolutely beautiful! My old trusty Head board with my old bindings are now proudly hanging on my office wall where they belong together. The new h0tness is ready to go for next year. I only got to ride her one day and already felt a huge difference. I was also exhausted from crushing it nonstop with Dave around Breck and then Winter Park, but it was really nice to go, and spend time with his family, as well.
Fast forward to the last month or so. Life is absolutely insane. We just finished one of our biggest jobs of the year so far, where we did all the signage (and when I say all, I mean like, all the fucking signs and banners and fence scrim) for Rolling Loud Miami, which is a massive hip hop festival. P.Diddy/Puff Daddy/Sean Puffy Combs/Diddy called it the Woodstock of Hip Hop while he was there last weekend. Supposedly this is a big deal. I also can’t believe that was just last weekend. We spent weeks printing and cutting and grommeting banners and signs. We went through rolls and rolls of banner material, we printed miles of the stuff, including the perimeter scrim all outside the Hard Rock Stadium, it was a big deal. Anyway, yeah. That sort of put a halt on reality. Everything stopped so that we could get that job done.
The day after we got home (last Tuesday) we hit the ground running with a Lululemon install.
I made it to the gym Wednesday for Bring a Friend Day, hooray! I’ve been sore the rest of the week from it. Two weeks of no CrossFit + 1 hour of CrossFit/Cardio/Wall Ball nonsense will jump start your soreness career all over again. Excited to get to it tomorrow and get back into my regular routine.
Keto is still great. I’m sitting pretty at 199 right now. I had gained weight back after the pups passed, just from lack of caring? I still stuck with Keto, I just ate too much. I was up to 205-206, which was mortifying. I worked so hard to get down to 189, so being at 199 a few days ago was really exciting for me. My goal weight is still around 180, although seeing as how hard it’s been just to stay in the 190s, I’ll just be happy to stay here for awhile and maintain.
I gave up on the coconut cream in my coffee stuff and went back to full fat heavy whipping cream. I didn’t see or feel a difference, and decided that ordering dozens of cans of full fat coconut cream off Amazon wasn’t worth the effort and expense. I will say that I have this horrible guilt every time I consume beef or dairy products, but I try to ignore it and just make sure the animal products I buy aren’t wasted. I have considered eliminating beef altogether, and I have actually cut back quite a bit on beef consumption, but it’s nothing to write home about. Maybe someday I’ll man up and make the big change. It’s honestly a topic I don’t care to get into or argue about, because I don’t like that I do it. So, we’ll leave it at that.
I have started following a more OMAD lifetyle though. Keto OMAD. OMAD stands for One Meal a Day, and in my next post, I’ll go into more detail on how liberating this really is. Thanks for sticking with me. 🙂
