Favorite Things: February 16 – 22, 2019

crossfit, favorite things

Today is the day of the Open! I’ll admit 19.1 will already be a challange for considering wall balls are my least favorite CrossFit movement of all. We usually go at noon, but today we are going to go do the work out at 5:30. I’m excited and extremely nervous. It is about to be a sufferfest!

Other than that, there are no major plans for this weekend. Tomorrow is sourdough Saturday, so I’ll make some bread. I’m just looking forward to relaxing (which is what I’ve been doing all week) and getting the house in order. Next week, I’m hoping to get more on a schedule and actually do things instead of loafing around all day. Ah, the joys of Ph.D. life.

Here are this week’s favorite things:

If you need ideas for your morning routine.

Exercise recovery: I agree that there is probably a lot hokey products out there, but that does not necessarily mean that all exercise recovery is a sham. That said, I would still be interested in reading this book.

Idle time: recovery for your brain. Who is Jean-Jacques Rousseau? I don’t even know anymore.

In praise of the useless life.

Lessons learned from eight years of writing an adventure blog.

The myth of the overnight success.

Welcome to the machine.

Drinking out of one right now.

Eating healthy on the budget, or the joys of rice and beans.

Big plans for this weekend? Are you doing the Open? Do you share my irrational loathing of wall balls?

Have a great weekend!
