Sweat It Out Saturday & Apple Banana Paleo Cookies

Due to my failed attempt at doing box jumps at 30 inches yesterday day afternoon, I wasn’t able to go to Crossfit. I am so proud of myself for being able to jump that high; I guess I got a little ahead of myself.

That being said, pay attention and focus on proper body placement and position. But I’m stronger today than I was yesterday for sure! Don’t feel bad for laughing at my video, no one is perfect! (plus I was laughing at myself)

Today I worked out at my own pace, a lot of core and cardio. I did some more box jumps as well but at 20 inches (do not want a repeat of yesterday). I burned about 400 calories! Overall, I had a pretty productive day! IMG_3864

Last night I did some night baking while Cody was streaming! I tried to make Paleo Cinnamon Rolls earlier in the day but unfortunately they turned out terrible. To get back on my game, I made Paleo Apple Banana Cookies! They turned out so well! Defiantly a great pre or post workout snack!
