Today marks the first day of the Pay to Play challenge at CrossFit Addiction. Basically, you pay $20 per goal you set, and if you achieve that goal by the end of the month, you get your money back. If not, it goes toward new equipment. (The challenge is optional for members.)
James offered some sample goals to get us thinking:
- Not eat out for 30 days (only homecooked meals)
- Go gluten free for 30 days
- Get 1 deadhang pullup
- Get 1 muscle-up
- Give up alcohol for 30 days
- Workout 4x a week for 4 weeks
- Give up coffee for 30 days
- No artificial sweeteners or sugar for 30 days
- Be in bed no later than 10 p.m. with the lights out for 30 days
- Stretch 3 days per week for 20 min. each day
Wondering what happens when you miss a double under? For me, I end up getting a good switching–and it didn’t help that I had on my five fingers so the tops of my feet got the brunt of the whippings.
This is my public declaration that my goal is to complete 30 double unders when rested and consistently string together 10 in a row during a workout…all using the pike method. Thankfully, it’s winter and my feet and legs are covered the majority of the time, because I know they’ll take a beating this month.
- 5 sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup chopped walnuts/pecans
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup coconut crystals
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
1. Fill dutch oven with 4 to 5 inches of water and bring to boil on stovetop.
2. Meanwhile, peel and dice sweet potatoes and add to pot.
3. Boil for 20 minutes, until potatoes begin to break down.
4. In small bowl, combine nuts, melted butter and coconut crystals.
5. Add in coconut flour and coconut milk, and set aside.
6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7. Drain sweet potatoes, and transfer to large mixing bowl.
8. Add all of the main ingredients except eggs, and blend until smooth. This will help the mixture to cool down a bit.
9. Add in eggs and beat again.
10. Add mixture to greased pan and evenly distribute nut mixture on top.
11. Bake at 350 degrees for roughly 30 minutes. I’d suggest covering the top with tin foil to avoid burning the topping.
