Embraced The Gauntlet Results!

After a long, hard day filled with 4 different WODs, sunburnt skin, and an achey body, we finally got the results. Ashley and I made our goal! 1st place female team!! Hell yeah! Although, they did not award it that way. Unfortunately, all the teams (male and females) went head to head. We placed 8th overall, which I am still very proud of. We beat all the female teams and 2 of them went to regionals.

I had a blast with these girls! I love them and all their energy. You all did amazing! I could not have asked for a better group to compete with.

 Poor Ashley...

 Woop Woop. :D

Fruit and Nut Balls

A friend of mine named Misty always comes to the gym with these amazing little paleo treats. She recently came in with home made Lara bars, which is just dried fruit and nuts shaped into a bar. I used the same concept for the fudge babies and decided to make fruit and nut balls. You can use any type of dried fruit and nut mixture. 

I made mine with:

2 cups Dried cranberries

1 cup Roasted almonds

2 tsp. Cinnamon

1 cup 60% chocolate chips

Sesame seed (enough to roll balls in)

Step 1: Roast almonds on 425 for 15 min (Put them in as soon as you turn the oven on-while its preheating)

Step 2: Mix cranberries, chocolate chips, and  cinnamon in a food processor 

Step 3: cool almonds and mix all ingredients together in food processor

Step 4: roll into small balls into sesame seed

Embrace the Gauntlet Prep

It is almost here!! Embrace the Gauntlet team competition! It is a 1 day event this Saturday in Dothan, AL. I am super excited! Ashley and I have been training hard the past week preparing. We have done 3 of the 4 events (Part of them anyway) I think we will do very well. Here are the WODS:

Event 1:
60 ball slams
200m swim

** I have not done competitive swimming since last summer. I just learned how to swim last june when I was training for my first du-athilon , The Splash and Dash. I had so much fun learning how to swim with these girls.
Event 2:
400m run
40 cleans 40 jerks
30 cleans 30 jerks
20 cleans 20 jerks
400m run
(105 lbs.)

** I was a little worried about this WOD. My cleans are decent but 105 is still heavy for that many reps. I did half yesterday and It was challenging but I know we will be fine. 

Event 3:
Tabata Deadlifts (155)
Tabata Row for calories

** This one was fun. We did this at the gym to see what our numbers would be and I think we can beast this. A little ambiguous, maybe ;). 

Event 4:

10 RFT
20 burpees
25 m buddy carry

**I did my first WOD with a buddy carry last weekend and it was rough. I had to carry a 135 lb. girl 200m for 5 rounds after squat jumps. My legs were dead! It was good prep for this weekend though. 

So those are the 4 events I will be participating in this Saturday. Wish me luck! I'll let you know how we do!

How Clever is this??

I love this idea! You can get creative with this and add anything to your mason jar meal. The one thing I love about mason jars is how easy it is to clean them. Adam and I use these jars to mix our protein also. If you know anything about protein shakes or even food in general- if you leave them in the container for too long... OMG they stink!! The mason jar is very easy to clean and the smell goes away once its rinsed.

Color of the week: lala lime

Baby will be my, corona and lime
And I will be your, main squeeze
And if your brother don't like my style,
We can take it to the street,
We can take it to the street

Yo, little girls in the city, dress up pretty
Go out and get messed up, get shitty
Girls by the sea, dress like hippies
And rock love beads and go skinny dippin'
Girls in the hills, go day trippin
To get their nails done and hair straightened
Little girls in the 818
Get hot when I roll over Laurel Canyon
