Entries in crossfit (2)
I recently bought a high-powered blender that answers to no one. If you encountered this blender in a dark alley, there's a good chance you would get a weird rash. It's a serious blender. It's a Blendtec.
As part of my foray into CrossFit, I'm trying to eat more veggies. This has always been hard for me. I'm a notoriously picky eater. The kind of kid who orders hamburgers that consist of meat + cheese + bun and that's it. So the idea of eating spinach and kale filled me with volcanic fury.
So I bought a blender to [hopefully] get more veggies into my system via delicious smoothies. I'll periodically post my experiments here. Get ready. Get smoothie.

Based on the recommendations of trusted friends and rascals, I started doing CrossFit this week. (Is it "doing" CrossFit? Learning? Training? Or just CrossFitting? I'm so confused. Perhaps I should ask someone at CrossFit Roots, the place where I, um, do.) It's this exercise thing. There is a whole lot of sweating.
Part of the regime includes a change in diet that focuses on Paleo principles. No dairy, no sugar, no bread, lots of veggies, meat and fruit as well as some other rules. (I'm sure I missed plenty.) I'm on Day 2 of the regimen, and my arms are sore.
I like the variety. Our workout from Day 1 was completely different from Day 2 - except for squats. There are always squats, it seems. I'm doing okay. I haven't passed out or started crying - both of which I tend to do when playing World of Warcraft - so I've got high hopes.
I also ordered a blender. Because I'm one of those dummies that can't eat vegetables properly. I'm going to make smoothies. I'll write about that more when it arrives. If I get good at it, I'll invite you over for a smoothie brunch on the weekend.
Did I mention my arms are sore?
