Random Thoughts Thursday

~I recently made this yummy, meaty, cheesy thing, a recipe I got from the Girls Gone Strong recipe book(which you can download for free from their website!). It's a meatza!!   I made it with lean ground beef, pizza sauce, mozarella cheese, diced peppers and onions, mushrooms, and my husband just had to add turkey pepperoni to his(he's Italian, he can't help it). It was pretty delish, I do have to say.

~So I've been taking a active recovery/deload week this week and I'm tellin' ya, I just cannot wait to get back to hittin' the weights heavy next week on a new program! I'm going to try out a push/pull split again because I feel like it's the best type of split for me to use while incorporating a day of CrossFit into my weekly routine. At the start of the new year, I'm going to try Wendler's 5/3/1 program again, just using a different split than the last time.

~I've come to the conclusion that this cooler weather is going to make me fat! I cannot seem to stop baking all kinds of yummy things. Yesterday I made some chocolate chip banana muffins with almond meal and oat flour, and the whole batch is already gone. In addition to the temptation of those darn caramel apples every time I go to the grocery store...and the fact that it's the season for chili...which my husband tells me I should make every single week!

~Does anyone's mind ever just go on "fitness information overload"? Mine sure does. There are times when I just don't even want to think about fitness, read another fitness blog, or another Facebook fitness post. I get tired of hearing everyone's "do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that." Stop telling me what to do! (Then stop reading it, right?) I know, I'm just being a whiner. I'm just in one of those moods.

~So just a little thought blurb I thought I'd share....I was walking Asher the other day and was thinking about how sometimes when we're walking, I find myself just thinking about getting to the end of the street so we can turn around and head back home. When I'm in such a rush to get to my "destination", I don't enjoy the walk nearly as much as when I slow down, look around me, and enjoy the scenary as I go. That sort of applies to fitness and even life in general. Slow down and enjoy the journey!

  1. That looks delicious! I downloaded the recipe book but haven't read it yet, oops!

    I definitely feel like I'm experiencing fitness information overload sometimes! Between working in a gym, training people, blogging about it and reading other blogs, it seems I live and breathe fitness! I've cut down the number of blogs I read to about 10. That certainly helps :)

  2. I don't get to go outside too often for my cardio, but when I do I find it is my favorite. I believe we could all use a very healthy dose of "stop and smell the roses". Good post, thanks for sharing.

  3. I agree about pausing to smell the roses. I love spending time in nature, it clears my mind!
