Tuesday’s workout was a nice ease back into things after the holiday weekend. Things felt good. When 140# is easy:

And 145# is not (Git under it, Morgan!):

Wednesday’s power snatch series was fun. Things felt good. So good that I PR’d on the middle set! For not having done the movement much recently, I was really excited. Fuck that qualifier – I am excited!

The death march was good. Next time I’ll start with the 20#ers. I attempted the 26# KBs, but looked like the middle section of the demo – stutter stepping. 

I enjoyed Thursday’s class workout, both the company and the breathing. I think the two hardest components were the tire hits and the BB sit-ups.

Trying to incorporate some quality gelatin into my diet for my skin and my ‘do. Made these hot chocolate cubes.

Hot Chocolate Squares. Better for you than, but not as delicious as, brownies

They do taste a little like hot chocolate, just with a chewy texture. Here’s the recipe from Real Food RN. Just make sure to add the water to the blender first. It turns out gelatin could double as cement and getting that shit out of the bottom of the blender may have required disassembly.
