Today's WOD

“jack” - AMRAP (20 min)
115 pound Push press, 10 reps - I did 45 lbs
10 KB Swings, 1.5 - I did 12 kilos
10 Box jumps, 24 inch box - I did step ups on just under 20' box

I completed 6 rounds and 5 push press

I don't think I have ever sweated so much :)  I feel good about this WOD and what I ate and the amount of water I consumed ... all is back to being good today. 

My VERY sore knees are still VERY sore and achy.  I wake up during the night from knee pain... I really hope it goes away soon..

Did I mention that I started to name my quad muscles??  I can not get over how much more defined they are.. lol

Shoulder Press 2 x 5 max for me was 70lbs
Front squat 3 x 5 max for me was 55lbs
Weighted pull ups 5 x 3 ... ya I may be on the black and blue belt for a little while :(

Last nights dinner was ribs and salad
Lunch yesterday was a large salad with chicken :)  Yummy!!

Breakfast this morning is going to be an omelette with ham!

Dinner is pork tenderloin and salad ...

Things are getting easier.  I still struggle with the water though.  I honestly forget to drink...

I am finding it a little more difficult to log in my food journal.  Life has just consumed me lately.
So much to do and so much running around.
Thursday's WOD was "DT"  I did it at 55lbs.  I also moved bands again.  I am at blue/black :) YAY me!!!

I have tried a few more new foods.

Kale Chips


I can definitely tolerate avocado in guacamole form much better than eating it raw :)  So my goal for this upcoming week is to continue with the water, cutting out wheat, adding more healthy fats and adding more fish :)

Good day today.  Had a nice big omelette with ham for a late breakfast and then hamburgers without buns and salad for dinner.

Broke down and had a cheeseburger from McDonalds. I didnt enjoy it at all and it made me feel really gross afterwards. :). I live that i am paying so much attention to how different foods effect my body.

The WOD today was good!  I enjoyed it.  500m row for time.  2min. 35s.  We did "Jackie" today

1000m row
50 thruster 45/35
30 pull up
I did it it in 13:03

I actually find that I would like to go to the gym more often then just 3x a week.  Not sure if my body can take it or not, but I find too long in between leaves me feeling sluggish.  I can try to do WOD's from home but it is very hard to keep motivated lol.

Dear Journal

Can I just say that cutting out wheat in my diet has become quite the challenge!  I am not doing so well the last couple of days.  I am trying really hard.  Tonight I indulged in tacos :(

Dear Journal

Why are we so hard on ourselves??  I KNOW that I shouldn't be and that I should be happy with what I have already achieved, however that is never the case!
Wasn't nearly has happy with my workout today.  I feel like I could have done a better job.

WOD - 7 rounds of:

7 deadlifts (45lbs)
100m sprint (I actually ran today again!!)
15 pull ups (I did 10)

I believe my time was 23:30

I am happy with my running but definitely not proud of my lifts.  I really wish I could have pushed harder to do 15.

Breakfast this morning was leftovers - Porkchops and yams which I had after I worked out.

Lunch - baked green pepper stuffed with tuna, cucumbers and tomatoes!

Got this idea from Whole 9

Was really full from breakfast this morning.  Not a lot of urge to snack because of it :)
My knees are KILLING me from the hike yesterday so I have to say I am a little nervous about crossfit tomorrow...

Hiked up Blue Mountain today with my family.  We did 2.6 km in 61 min.  So much better than what I did the last time I went up last year!  Less stopping!

Very excited!

Dear Journal

Still very tired, achy and have a huge headache.  Not sure what is going on, maybe coming down with something??

Yesterday's WOD

100 pull ups (I did 50 with green and blue bands)
100 pushups (using a bar)
100 sit ups
100 squats

Time was 29 minutes and 34 seconds

My arms were JELLO!!  A little sore today but not as bad as my knees.  They are really sore to bend.

As I am sitting here I am beginning to get hungry but really do not have the energy to make something to
This is where processed crap would come in handy :)
