I cooked dinner tonight! I didn’t even start cooking dinner till almost 7 but I was determined I was going to cook!  I had a lot of errands to run after work today so everything got pushed back quite a bit.  Tonight I made Veggie Tacos and they were delicious!!  The recipe made enough to feed 10 people with leftovers!! If you have a family of 4 like I do, maybe you should cut it in half.  I will be sharing my leftovers with my 2 besties tomorrow.  One is on the first week of her Advocare 24 day challenge and the other has already being taking Advocare products for a few months and is in general a healthy eater.  This recipe was taken from cookingclassy.com

Today’s WOD: My snatches need help 😦 They are so terrible. Maybe it’s because I learned how to snatch by watching Youtube…… I could only do 85lbs for my strength and they were UGLY!!!  Besides my snatches the rest of the WOD was good, I modified the HSPU to push ups with feet on 20″box…someone please clean out my garage so i have some wall space for HSPUs! I love HSPUs..I’m actually good at them if I can do them consistently! Again thank you Outlaw Crossfit for your awesome programming.

5X2 Pause Snatches (3 count pause at the knee) – heavy but NO MISSES and absolute strict pause at the knee (I did 85lbs)
