Today has been full of surprises:
Two 173 pound dead lifts
A phone interview with our local paper about my Paleo diet
A blog post!
I have no good reason for disappearing from this space for 36 days, other than . . .
Healing busted callouses from 6 days a week of CrossFit workouts (yes, I'm addicted, and I've been cut off from pull ups for the next week).
Watching my husband break in his new fly rod (on a recent fishing trip, I actually saw a bald eagle!).
Impressing my children with my massive muscles (in reality, my calves are much more symmetrical and much less scary).
Drinking tequila spritzers with homegrown berries while learning to do double unders.
Spending as much time outside as possible, which is easy to do while watering the garden and pulling weeds, trail running and hiking, watching baseball games and synchronized swimming meets, lounging on the hammock and reading.
But despite all this activity, two of my body parts are not being exercised nearly enough: my writing voice and my shutter finger. I'm going to work on that, along with my ring dips, overhead squats, and handstand pushups.
Here's a little treat to reward you for coming back to see me despite my long absence:
Coconut Mango "Ice Cream"
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
Mix ingredients in blender until smooth.
Serves one hungry mama.
