I took another rest day yesterday. Helped with trimming more instead. Went grocery shopping with Charlie… Today’s been a cooking blitz. I made this lemon & almond flour cake… Messed up following the instructions, but it just may be edible, warmed up and with vanilla ice cream, rather than the lemon & confectioners sugar glaze. I made some rice with leftover mushroom stock & veggies in the rice cooker at the same time. Tonight I’m going to make sheet pan chicken, grapes, shallots & potatoes for the main.
Both the chicken & lemon cake are NYT recipes.
I’m just not that into brutality in my WOs anymore
And then I was going to finish the last Julia WO but I realized there was no way I felt like doing endless burpees. I’d finished previewing the 2nd half, jotting my notes, and she commented, Ya, this is brutal right? If you’re doing the whole thing, like some kinda crazy person! LOL. The person who wrote it is an ultra marathoner, J says at the beginning. The routine is already shortened.
Anyway to each their own. I don’t mind the routine halved, though it’s not one I’d repeat.
