Challenging Yourself

Do you find it difficult to challenge yourself to go to the next level knowing it will make your time slower or just be extremely hard?

On our Nancy Challenge, we thought Courtney would put herself into the Beginner Category. She surprised us on Friday by doing some Overhead Squats with the 45lb bar and decided she would go into the Intermediate Category.

I’m pretty sure during some of the rounds, especially 1 and 2, she wanted that light bar back, but she pushed through and rounds 3, 4 and 5 were great! She found her rhythm and went with it.

Our challenges are designed to see how much you can improve in 6 weeks. By upping her weight, Courtney put herself into the position to be able to cut some serious time off her Nancy WOD. That is exciting! Courtney is following the same path as her sister, Brittany, who just had her first RX in July. This family is kicking butt!

Paleo Recipe


Nicole Ashman

1 granny smith

3 oz crushed cashews

6 oz unsweetened coconut milk

1/3 cup unsweetened apple juice, natural juice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 egg

Remove core and slice apples into slices. Beat the egg and add the milk and juice in one bowl. In another put the cinnamon and cashews, mix. Dredge the apple slice in the milk then dip it in the cashews, coat it. The coating will be sticky. You only have to coat the top side. Line a pan with aluminum foil and grease it with coconut oil.

Place the apples on the pan. Bake at 350 till golden brown.
