This pear, bacon and brie grilled cheese with caramelized onions is sweet, salty and cheesy, the ultimate grilled cheese.
You know how people experience weight loss plateaus? They’re eating right but the scale doesn’t budge for weeks on end. Well, I’m currently experiencing the Crossfit version of that right now.
Monday we did Karen: 150 wallballs. For you non-crossfitters that means picking up a 14 pound medicine ball, squatting with it and throwing it 10 feet in the air against a wall, catching it and repeating 149 more times as fast as you can. My time was 9:26. I got home, wrote it down in my little book and then looked back to see what my last time was. 9:25. Sweet, no progress.
Yesterday we did max height box jumps. Last time we did this was in October, I got 34 inches. What’d I get yesterday? 34 inches and nicely bruised shin attempting 34.5″.
When it comes to putting a barbell over my head, I’ve been stuck at 108-113 pounds for months. Push press, push jerk, thruster, split jerk, over head squat…all the same. Stuck, stuck, stuck.
Just like a weight loss plateau, I’m showing up, doing my thing and seeing no progress.
The only thing that’s missing is my diet. I could be way more on point with that than I am but then things like pears, brie and bacon float around in my head and I decide it would be a good idea to sandwich them with some caramelized onions between two pieces of sourdough bread, eat it and tell you about it.
Bacon > barbells.
But seriously, 115 pounds overhead would be nice.
