Congrats Camille!!! The Champion Crossfit Games 2014
Is it wrong that I teared up as if I was watching a Halmark commercial when I saw Camille’s reaction? I am so happy for her.
Paleo Buffalo Shepherds Pie
This ones a keeper. Just made it up. Got the idea to put hot sauce in my ground turkey from Paleomg.
1lb ground turkey
Handful Cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Cup of spinach
2 tbsp Bacon fat, split
Hot sauce to taste
1 head of cauliflower
Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté turkey, spinach, bacon fat, minced garlic and tomatoes. Drain extra water once cooked. Add hot sauce. Simmer.
Steam head of cauliflower. Then blend it with bacon fat and seasonings.
10-15 minute dinner. I like. Easy, clean and tasty.
6oz of meat = 4 blocks protein, 1 block fat (veggies in this are negligible for carbs)
1.5 cups of cauliflower mash = 1 block carbs, 1 block fat
Can you believe 1 entire head of cauliflower is only 3 blocks? And I had a third of it. And I’m stuffed!
I estimated the bacon fat per what normally comes off of a number of slices. 2 slices is 2 blocks of fat - if your protein doesn’t have fat. So I estimated from there.
And now I need to find the rest of my macros elsewhere.

Unofficially CrossFit Banks Answer:
Thank you, I think. 😳 hehe
Today’s competitors WOD wasn’t nearly as long as yesterdays, or his usual WODs, which is fine since alarms did not go off and we were late.
CONDITIONING: Run 1 mile for time.
Score - 6:29 (huh?!)
Apparently I can run. My GPS must have been off when I tested last weekend and got 7:50. This was a measured mile, so I trust the distance. I’m comin’ for ya Summer Meltdown.
For time - (12 min cap)
150 Wall balls 14#/9’
Because I was not going to finish within the time cap for the DU, we gave me a 20 min cap and subbed 20 C2B to get some work in since I can’t do MU. So essentially, I did Karen in about 8:25, then got thru 41 DU before the 12 min cap. I finished my C2B with 0:54 left on the clock.
And now my quads shall die. And I will bury them next to my shoulders. Rest day tomorrow - traveling again for work. Dropping in at 8th Day CrossFit on Tuesday. They just had a member win one of the male master’s divisions, so that’s kinda cool.
Okay, don’t hate me for saying this - but I kind of don’t want Rich to win. I like him. I just want someone else to win. And dammit I want Julie to podium. We shall see!
Flex Saturday anyone? I may have some mini biceps coming out to play. Watch out 😆
I decided to step up my game and do one of Chris’s competitor WODs today.
WARM: statics, dynamics (high knees, bear crawl, inch worm pushups), 3:00 jump rope work
SKILL: 10-12 min handstand walk practice
STRENGTH: snatch balance 3-3-3-3-3
CONDITIONING: 50 strict toes to bar for time - 5:25
Rest 10 min
WOD: for time
20 rebounding box jumps 24/20”
25 ring dips
25 ring dips
POST: reverse vipers 5x5
On the handstand walk, I started with my progression on the wall. I’m always able to take about 4-5 steps. As soon as I go past that point on the floor I can’t get beyond 2. I tried away from the wall as well and only got about 4-5 steps.
Snatch balances are fairly foreign to me. I’ve done them a very long time ago and now and again, so I just stayed light.
The strict toes to bar were tricky. It’s hard to not sway or use your momentum to get up. It’s a little awkward, but I’m happy with my time. I did sets of 5.
The wod was long and rough but I kept a steady pace. Box jumps and burpees were steady and unbroken. The ring dips were mostly sets of five until the second round of 25. Then there was a mix of everything. My kipping is getting better on those though.
Chris finished the ttb about :30 before me and the wod 3:30 before me. So I held my own - albeit slowly - but I was never resting ridiculous amounts. I should start doing more of his WODs. It’s always just a time constraint on my end. This took 2 hours to complete and that’s not even with the cool down.
Anyway my legs will be jelly tomorrow, but I had fun.
