Sometimes when I get home late from the box, I'm too tired to cook but I'm starved! The above photo is my version of "dinner in a pinch." I took roasted tomato soup from Trader Joe's and mixed it with leftover roasted chicken. I then added bok choy, beets, and avocado with a touch of curry powder. It was a delicious way to get a bunch of veggies in my system.

Nutritionize from CrossFit Unlimited posted information about a company called Let Them Eat Cake! They make allergy friendly pastries. I haven't tried them, but their goods look delicious. The head pastry chef has been making goods like these for ten years! They don't have a storefront, but you can place orders.
Call me mean and unfair. But I went ga-ga when I ran into this story about Megan Fox's funky thumbs. I know it's unfair. But knowing that she has toe thumbs just warms my heart. ha ha!

Notes (to myself) about this workout: Though I didn't RX Cindy, I did PR it! One of the first times I did Cindy, I did 13 rounds + 1 squat. However, I know that the movements were totally half-assed. Tonight I felt strong and I moved continuously. Usually, I have to break down the sets and take lots of breathers. I usually have stamina issues (especially when it comes to running), but tonight I felt good, solid, and consistent. I did a swing kip for the pull-up (but could not for the life of me get that damn chin over the bar). Though I looked like an idiot, I could feel that my pull was stronger than usual. Push-ups were on my knees, but I kept my hands narrow and tried to maintain a tight core. Squats were great. I made sure to do them at a steady pace to avoid the quad burn. Overall, I was really happy about tonight:)
