Crossfit, Zombie 5k Obstacle Run, Upcoming Recipes & Foods

By Roseywinter @roseywinter


I know, right? I've been wanting to experience Crossfit for a while now, especially after my interview with Holly Woodcock for the short paleo documentary that I did on her and her personal thoughts and experiences regarding the paleo diet. My best friend, T, has been trying to get me to go as well (she said it was like pulling teeth!) Not because I didn't want to... but because I was scared to. I know it's ridiculous -- plenty of people do Crossfit and are fine... plenty of FAT people do Crossfit and are fine... plenty of UNFIT people do Crossfit and are fine. Who has died from a WOD in a Crossfit gym? I mean, maybe it's happened, I dunno, but for sure it's rare! And by no means am I the most unhealthiest person on the planet...
But you know... fear, anxiety, doubt. Wardrobe malfunction scenarios racing through my brain.
But no. No, no. No more of that nonsense.
I actually bought a pretty good deal for American River Crossfit on LivingSocial, but got a refund because I didn't want to go there alone, and the schedule conflicted with T's schedule. But recently T moved to Roseville, which is basically in my backyard. She said she was going to try out Rocklin Crossfit and invited me, because they have a 10-day free trial. Oooh! WOD with my BFF... at a nearby location... for 10 days... free? :D OKAY!
So that's where I'm going tomorrow! I'm super excited & super scared at the same time. ^^


This month I'm also going to participate in my first 5K! A zombie obstacle 5k, actually. The Running Dead Zombie Mud Run. Yes. THERE WILL BE MUD. And zombies. ZOMBEEEEH! (Every time I think of zombies, I always get that Cranberries song stuck in my head). I bought a voucher from LivingSocial for $29 (only 4 days left!), using my deal bucks from my ARCrossfit refund. The full ticket price is $75, so it's a great deal! I also get a free beer & a t-shirt. I'm not really a big beer drinker, but I think I might down it to commemorate the event. :) I mean when you're being chased by zombies through a 3 mile obstacle course, and come out at the end... MAYBE alive... why not??


So those are two fun things that I'll be doing this month, and I'm also going to blog more recipe experiments, and meals that I make & eat. :)
Tonight I'm going to make a grain-free low-carb cheesecake for dessert, and not sure what I'll be making for dinner. Last night I made hint of buffalo chicken drumsticks with roasted brussel sprouts. It was good! Can't wait to get home from school so I can cook~ I'm hungry!
