Year of Push 2.4 Sugar For Breakfast (It Happens)

by | Apr 6, 2017 | Blog

Hey guys, if you’re new to these posts, listen to this podcast episode to get the scoop on what changes I’m making in my life and you can start back at my first daily post here.

The good news: I’m sleeping again & definitely starting to feel better.

The meh news: I was all over the place this morning!

I wasn’t focused, I didn’t feel like working, and I didn’t even want my own coffee.

Don’t be alarmed – I wanted coffee, I just didn’t want my coffee.


In my little funk, I drove to a local specialty store, got some hot coffee AND a bag of double chocolate lara bites. WTF?

I don’t even really like them. They’re average at best.

I don’t even think I’ve ever bought them before today.

I ate them all.

They weren’t delicious. I wasn’t hungry. I ate them all. Yep. It happened.

Of course that didn’t help my focus! All that sugar on an empty stomach!

Can’t help but laugh and move the heck on.

I managed to grind through a few hours of work and decide on a date & city for the next Primal Potential in-person event. I’ll share that info soon, I hope! I want to get a contract signed for a location first.

I’m gonna hate life during today’s speed workout after eating all that crap this morning.

I’d be lying to suggest that I didn’t consider skipping today’s workout but using overeating as a reason to skip a workout is pretty backwards logic!

I might make one choice that doesn’t make me feel my best but I’m not gonna make two! 

“Throw Back Thursday”
Teams of 3:
7 Kettlebell Swings (70/53#)
7 Box Jumps (24/20″)
Shuttle Sprint
7 Burpees
Shuttle Sprint

So, each person goes through the full list of movements and then the next teammate goes. Only one person is working at a time and you’re going as fast as you can.

Thanks in advance, muscle glycogen, for firing my muscles as quickly as possible…

I will tell you this: all that sugar was mental motivation during the workout! I imagined the sugar being shunted to my tired muscles and making it possible for me to GO GO GO!!!

That was a brutal workout. I had to focus so hard on breathing and recovering between each round so I was able to go hard again.

I’m going out to a charcuterie place for dinner tonight so I can assure you that I won’t be eating until then. Not only did I eat plenty this morning, it was puurrrrrre sugar.

Meat, cheese and water tonight.

Well, we started with meat, cheese & water – a small plate.

Then we shared wagyu beef meatballs, a salad and some wagyu tacos. Gooooood stuff. The pictures made it to my Instagram story.

Will I try to make up for this indulgence? No.

Will I get all emotional about it? No.

Was the day a failure? No.

Did I blow it? No.

I ate a bag of Lara Bites for breakfast. That’s all.

No need for drama. It’s food. I chose it. 

The end.

Here’s a great day tomorrow, focusing on choices that make me feel proud, energized & strong!
