I had a hard time falling asleep last night. I was having a leg spasm, had a headache and had a lot on my mind. Since my leg was bothering me so much, I decided to get up and do some stretches. I got 8 hours of sleep but woke up with my headache still. But once I got out of bed, my headache disappeared.
Sat down at my desk to start my day and enjoyed a cup of black coffee
My headache came back (don’t know why?) but I was super excited for lunch today, so I pushed though it. I made “Garlic Curry Shrimp”. Now, before all of this I thought Curry was “spicy” which I have a low tolerance for but over the past years I have tested my limits with spiciness and have learned to appreciate them. Some things are just too spicy for me but I am also learning the difference between “spicy” and just “flavorful”. While this dish was cooking I was getting even more excited, it smelt so good (a perk about working from home, fresh cooked lunches everyday!). I heated up some leftover mashed cauliflower and dug in (with a seltzer). Again, another FANTASTIC meal. And my new found love for curry 🙂 I didn’t eat this slow and savor, I was starving by the time it was done (I thought I planned out my timing well, but guess not nor did the headache help). It was wicked good though.
Here is the recipe I used – http://www.arizonacaveman.com/garlic-curry-shrimp-paleo-couscous/
I had a handful of fruit (strawberries, blackberries and raspberries) with a seltzer.
On my way to CrossFit I had 2 hardboiled eggs and some avocado (yeah me for planning on not relying on a shake!)

September’s Homework at the box is row 10,000 meters so I stayed tonight and rowed 2,000 to get a jump start.
Had my SFH Recovery Shake for my ride home
I was pretty tired when I got home so I was excited I had some amazing leftovers to heat up. I heated up last nights dinner; chicken, mashed cauliflower and roasted brussel sprouts. It was still amazing. I didn’t finish all the chicken as I was pretty full.
Overall it was a pretty good day… on to day 11 🙂
