Friday means Chocolate. Basically the same thing actually. I really try to stay away from chocolate during the week, and all other “paleo treats” as well. It’s not easy for sure, but my blood sugar crashes like craaaazy if I eat too much sugary stuff and that ain’t fun to be around me then I can tell, haha! I just function better if I eat more fat and protein + slow carbs from roots and sweet potatoes mostly + berries and some fruits! BUUUT since it’s Friday and weekend now I will treat myself with some chocolate and maybe some other little paleo treat. Yum yum.
By the way I can barely walk today after yesterdays workout that lasted for about 2.5h including 5×5 pretty heavy deadlifts, a lot of rowing and farmers carry, GHD situps and some other crazy GHD movement that killed my hamstrings. I did just 4 reps of that exercise then I was done. Got cramp haha. Then I did a lot of planks and some mobility. Feels soooooo good to be back in the game again and meeting all my friends at my CrossFit box!! Gonna hit the couch tonight tough with some chocolate and a movie, that’s pretty much what I have the energy for. But first some cooking and baking. Love being in the kitchen!! 🙂 Surprice haha!
This recipe of my Crunchy Chocolate Almond Goji Bark is perfect if you want something really yummy to snack on tonight more healthier then candy. It goes super fast to make too! It has the perfect crunch too which I love and the gooeyness from the goji berries. Plus the lovely chocolaty taste. Ehm duuuuh ofc it has since it is basically made of just chocolate haha, but yeah you get the point, it’s super delish!!
