I hate double unders

Today I was finally able to get thru a strength workout and a WOD. What a relief. Feel good, finally. Actually slept last night without drugs. Now if I can only get thru double unders without whipping myself. In todays wod I actually got thru the first round unscathed. 15,10,2,8. The next 2 rounds however were torture. 2,3,5,1,1... yadda yadda yadda. Think the longest I made was an 8. I suck. I just hate to practice them. Hate it. I know if I just practice I would get better. But they are so frustrating I hate to even think about them. I would rather do burpees than double unders. Yeah, I said it. Burpees. At least I don't get whip marks from burpees.

Jury is still out on the stomach thing. Yesterday I felt like crap most of the day either from the 3 chocolate cookies I had with wheat flour in them or the oatmeal. I can't believe 3 cookies would make me feel that bad and oatmeal is part of the 'possible' list and not really considered to affect people with gluten issues. All I know is I feel better when I don't have wheat. So, there it is.

MDA's article on honey. I always thought it was the better option as far as sweeteners but now at least I know for sure..... well, at least I think I do, his scientific explanations are a bit tedious and hard to understand but the general gist is good honey is better for you than any other sugary substance.
