one day it'll all make sense.

mars or bust

Whether or not you’ve noticed, lately the food element of my blog has been MIA.  I think I have a decent explanation…

First, I went through a period of indecision in terms of whether or not I would like to continue with the Zone approach.  Pre-vacation, I bought in 110% but struggled with it.  I’m the kind of person that when I get it in my mind that I want to do something, I’m all in.  I give my best effort and don’t give up until I succeed.  Great quality to have, but it’s bit me in the ass more than once.  How do you reason with yourself that sometimes, even though you put everything you’ve got into something, it may not work out.  A fellow foodie who I work with joined me on a little “life’s not fair” rant today.  We are both into the “just eat real food” mentality.  We make all our own meals, bring our lunches to work daily, take the time to consider proper portion sizes and a good balance of carbs/proteins/fats, but both have gone through periods of struggling with our weight.  There have been so many times I’ve stood in line at the grocery store with my basket of fresh veggies and meats and wondered how the cart load in front of me of cookies, chips, pop and freezer dinners can be possible.  Life’s not fair.  People fill their bodies with garbage and neglect them of any physical activity, yet they still fit in to skinny jeans.  Dave and I concluded that we needed to find a different angle to look at things before we both went postal.  We need to stop hating our bodies for not being the pictures you see in the media.  We need to appreciate all the things they allow us to DO.  We need to recognize that the healthy foods we choose to involve in our lives will allow us to live longer and healthier lives.  We need to make a CHOICE.  Back to the important lessons I’ve learned from Crossfit – I will stop comparing myself to others.  Cause life is never going to be “fair”, but it is worth living.

AND… tonight I’m making chili 🙂  My creativity is coming back.  My food lately has been less than exciting even to me, and incredibly un-photogenic.  While I chowed this morning’s chopped sweet potato, scrambled egg whites and crumbled sausage I realized that it somewhat resembles the dog’s breakfast…  smells amazing, but I haven’t figured out how to represent that in a photo.

Crossfit rest day, can you tell??  :p  First Crossfit Games Open WOD will be announced tomorrow night!
