Well, here we go. Day 1 of Paleo. Woohoo. Note the lack of an exclamation point. I know going Paleo is going to make me healthier and feel better, but it’s going to take a while to adjust, which means grumpy/angry/irritable Ninja. I’m a carbivore and this diet does not allow any of that. Since I am not allowed to eat my favorite foods, that is all I can think about. Every other thought was about food, food that I’m not allowed to eat. I want my cheese! I want my french fries! Whaaaah! Okay, I’m done whining now. About food, that is. Today’s workout was brutal. Especially since I’m still recovering from my injury in APRIL (!) and the fact I haven’t been able to workout consistently due to said injury. My foot is getting better everyday, it’s just not healing as fast as I’d hoped. Oh, well. Patience is the name of the game. I’m not gonna lie, I hate thrusters. Yeah, yeah, it’s a good workout, but it sucks. Deal with it. It’s my second least favorite skill to do, right next to numero uno, burpees. And fancy that! This workout had both. Whoopie! I’m still not allowed to run or jump yet so I’ve been rowing instead of running and doing 1-legged burpees, which are tough but have been strengthening and improving my coordination. Alright, enough bitching for the night. Sweet dreams!
