Last night was just what I needed. I made a delicious Zone dinner (Southwest chicken on a bed of cabbage with zucchini on the side, and strawberries + almonds for dessert), then watched back-to-back episodes of NCIS.

Mark Harmon’s Gibbs is the perfect antidote for a rough week — and the theme song makes me wanna dance.

I woke up at 4:00 a.m. this morning — with my stomach growling — and after I ate half a Balance bar, got caught up reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Suddenly, it was 5:57 and my alarm was blaring. Those two hours just evaporated, I was so caught up in the story.

I was tempted to stay in bed and finish my book, but the I AM CROSSFIT workout for today was beckoning.

For time:

  • 150 situps
  • 100 lunges
  • 75 dips
  • 50 vert jumps

My time: 13:28

Then Dave and I hit the trail for a 3-mile run.
My time: 28:23.
