How They Found Crazy as a Mother & What I Ate Tuesday

Today's Workouts:

Vampire Run:  4 miles in the stifling heat.  Avg. 8:25 min/mile.

Workout:  Bryson's workout was a 15 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible).  We were almost finished with 4 rounds when he called time.  So, he challenged us to finish 5 rounds in 20 minutes:  10 floor wipers, 10 russian twists with heavy medicine ball, and 10 burpee with push-ups.

How They Found Crazy as a Mother:

Most people that visit Crazy as a Mother get here because they have too much time to kill  are my friends on Facebook. But, some poor unsuspecting souls find their way here by accident.  

I can see the search terms that people have lead here, and some of them are kind of funny.  Some are kind of weird. So, I thought I would share them with you:

1.   My mom stunk up my whole kitchen
2.   Huge edible gummy bear
3.   Running mishaps
4.   Augustus Gloop up the pipe
5.   Birthday Revelry
6.   Don't cry demotivational posters
7.   Completely restored 1973 MGB
8.   Crossfit Reebok Roma
9.   Frit vs. fructose
10.  Short stack workouts

I did not mispell "frit".  Someone else did. 

And, It's Wesnesday . . . So Here is What I ate Tuesday:

For dinner on Monday night, I made Genius Gina's (from Mexican Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas. I'm pretty sure that I've talked about these before.   If you haven't made them yet, you totally should. They cook all day and make the house smell so good. Plus, you can make a bunch and eat on it for days.

So, the point of the story is that, because we had leftovers,  I ate left over pulled pork all day on Tuesday.   Tuesday was "Pork-Three-Different-Ways Day" or "Porky Tuesday", if you will.


For breakfast, I scrambled 2 egg whites with tomatoes and red peppers. I smeared a queso-flavored Laughing Cow Cheese wedge on Lavash, covered the cheese with the egg mixture, a small amount of pulled pork, and half a 100-calorie packet of Wholly Guacamole.

I then rolled it all up like a burrito and nuked it for 30 seconds. Voila!! A pulled pork breakfast burrito. I chased it with some iced coffee.


The Great and Powerful Oz has a garden out back that has been producing more squash than we know what to do with.

Cooked squash is mush and, thus, not my favorite vegetable.  But, I've been looking for creative ways to cook hide it in food. To use some of it up, I had pulled pork "faux-chos" for lunch.

That's right.  It's as weird as it looks.  Instead of chips, I used lightly steamed squash.  I thought I could fool myself since it's the right color.  The squash was smothered in pulled pork, black beans, salsa, tomatoes, guacamole, a little cheese, and fat free sour cream.  

I've got to say, I actually liked it a lot.  It will make repeated appearances this week on my plate.


It's 103 degrees outside, and we had three ball games Tuesday night. I didn't feel like anything too heavy. So I had a salad with pulled pork, tomatoes, salsa, black beans, and guacamole. Basically, I had my lunch again with lettuce instead of squash.


In the morning, I had 1/2 of my container of Greek Yogurt and Oats Parfait.

In the afternoon, I had a hankering for a rice cake something carby,   and I had just been rice cake shopping. 

Excessive?  No way.   However, the abundance and variety of rice cakes presented a tough decision.  To try something new, I had a chocolate rice cake with 1.5 Tbsp of cashew butter.

Totally satisfying.  Reminded me a little bit of my dear friend . . . that I'm not speaking to right now . . .  the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. 

Do you know who I was speaking to at about 9:30 last night, though?  Four of these little guys and a glass of milk:

I am breaking up with them.  This relationship is over.  And, I'm sending them to my mom's house to be dealt with . . . just like I did to my kids today.

See you Friday,
