Doing great! And yea, there is something about lifting a heavy weight above your head.

And haha, complaining stomach during handstands xD it's better than losing some air while squatting or something like that ;)

haha. :D The nice thing about not working out at a gym, no one hears all the weird noises  I make.

 

Looks like you're off to a great start! 

Thanks

I like to throw in a food challenge. 

That's a great start to the challenge!  Of course, I already expected you to be consistent and awesome   :)

Thanks

 

How was the apple crisp?

Great start! Your workout inspires me.

Hmm, not so great. I tried to do the recipe from memory from last year. I forgot to put water in with the apples, and they taste dry. Still good, just not awesome.

Life goal not so happy today. I planned on making a new meatball recipe. But by the time I made apple crisp it was later then I planned, and I was tired, and so scrapped the meatballs and just did ground beef and sauteed veggies (my go-to meal)

 

And my apple crisp didn't turn out so well. I just did the recipe from memory from last year, and the apples were too dry.

might sound dumb but is apple crisp, what we in the UK would call apple crisps, or something different?

Not dumb, since I don't know what you in the UK call apple crisp :) It is baked apples, with a crumbly pastry top, in this case almond flour, chopped nuts, coconut, and butter and a bit of stevia and cinnamon

Do you consider arrowroot to be paleo? Are there any other sweeteners you are ok with now, or just stevia? I have a few suggestions that might improve the apple crisp (though I usually make apple crumbles without a crispy top, just crumbly).

You are doing great with your challenge!

I can't seem to find arrowroot at the grocery story. I've seen it in recipes though. Don't even know what it is. The root of an arrow? I'd love suggestions. We still have apples, so I want to try again. Other sweeteners I can use are honey and maple syrup

Not doing so great on the recipe front. Went to look for some of the Thai ingredients at my store. I remembered seeing Lemongrass. Well, when I looked at it in the store, it was in a tube, with Canola oil added, plus tons of other preservatives. So, I need to look at an Asian market.  Also, right now we have a gazillion apples in our house from our one little tiny apple tree. And because it has been warm, they are attracting fruit flies. So I need to take care of them now. I'm making applesauce, to turn into apple butter right now. NOMS. But then I don't have time or energy for new fancy Thai recipes. So life goal being delayed. 

 

This has been an odd week for handstand. Monday, I'd had too much tea, and my stomach was gurgling and sloshing and driving me nuts when I tried handstands. And today I got this massive foot cramp. You know the kind where then you try and walk it out, but you feel like crying. So that kind of stopped that. Random, then it was fine the rest of the day. Tonight I'll stand on a ping pong ball and roll my foot out some.

 

Oh, and I totally messed up my rep routine for the workout. It has ladders and each workout is different, and so I wrote out what I needed to do. Only I wrote it wrong. :o So then I added some in later.

 

I did get in 50 pushups for my PVP challenge though.

Oooooooooooh, that's something we call apple crumble. To us Apple Crisps are potato chips made with apple, and what we call chips I don't think you have a word for because it isn't the same as fries

 

the worlds gone mad!

Did you check the produce section?  That's always where I've seen it.  It looks like a stick or a reed, usually in the same area with the ginger.  (Of course, I live in an area with a LOT of different ethnicities, so it may not be so easy to find elsewhere.)  Also it's sometimes available dried in the herbs & spices section of the store.

Lemongrass freezes well so when you do get to the Asian store you can always buy a bit extra. The stuff in the tube is nasty!

Good to know. I'm sure there will be leftover. Then I can just stick it in the freezer for next time.

I think some Americans call it crumble. Crumble actually makes more sense. But it's a dessert  from my husband's side of the family and that's what they call it. . :) 

 

Your amount of pushups still boggles my mind. What weight are you using for the c&p now? I bet that benefits from the pushups.

Thanks. Using 25#. I think the pushups help. I hadn't done them press for a long time, but was pretty much able to pick up where I left off.

Yeah, lots of cool veggies that I never saw but no lemongrass. Didn't check in the dried spices though

Mmmm. Crisp/crumble sounds delicious. I think that would be called an apple cobbler in my house. :)

Quite possibly, but it's still what my family would call it, lol. :P
