Today I was sore, really sore, the kind you only experience when your rest day turns into practice your clean and jerk for two hours. But after a slow start to the day I made it into the gym. Once again I was flying solo for the 4pm class so I worked by myself and eventually the 5pm group came in early and cheered me on. New 2rm for Dead-lift today – 425, failed a 435 attempt. Going in I had put the over/under at 450 I really wanted that number but I was just too sore to get it. Workout today was Hang clean thrusters, burpee over box jumps, and kettlebell swings. Again Burpees show me that I’m not back to 100% as I struggled hard during them each round. Finished off the night with a trip to the grocery store and came home with some Lamb chops that were on sale. Excited to have these in the next couple days, also bought a Veal steak to try since I’ve never had it before. With that out of the way let me rant for a second.
WHY AM I CRAVING DOUGHNUTS ALL THE TIME NOW THAT I’M WHOLE 30?
And yes you can read that screaming. I haven’t had one since I went paleo in July of 2011, that’s right almost two years with none. No I haven’t made a Paleo version, I really just have not missed them or wanted them at all. But yesterday at the gym they were mentioned and ever since I’ve been craving them ridiculously I think about them, in the grocery store they seemed to be everywhere. I smell the sweetness of the glaze on them and I just want to eat a whole dozen. No idea why, but I really want them badly. And it’s not as though I could just say if I crave them this much I’ll have one, I’ve got three more weeks of Whole 30 before I can even think about a cheat. What is wrong with me, guess I’ll add one to my eat a pound of bacon because you haven’t had it for a month meal when this thing is over. I don’t know if this is what they were intending when the program was put together. But this is ridiculous. Now excuse me while I think thoughts of sugary glazed goodness and drool a little. Just like Homer would.
