Hey everyone! Well, the weekend is upon us and I can’t even pretend that I am not excited about that! It’s Saturday, my only day off this week and I am ready to enjoy it! But let’s back up shall we. Rewind…about 48 hours to Thursday.
Thursday morning’s breakfast was a sprouted english muffin topped with low fat chive cottage cheese and tomato slices with a clementine on the side.
I also had coffee with organic half and half in one of my favorite mugs. It was a gift from my friend Ibelis.
Lunch was leftover meatloaf with mashed potatoes and broccoli.
I had a pre-workout snack of plain greek yogurt topped with honey and some blueberries while finishing up a few things at work.
I left work at 4:15 and headed straight to my Crossfit box. I did a quick change from this:
The earliest evening classes usually start at 5:30pm and that is a little late for me sometimes. It means I need to stay at my desk until 5:00 because if I go home in between work and the gym, it is really difficult to get myself to the gym. After a long day, once I am parked on the couch, I don’t want to get back up and go out in the cold. I decided to go to open gym for the first time and workout by myself. I was a little concerned about whether or not I had the discipline to go to the gym and workout by myself. I used my iWod Fitness App to plan my workout. I decided to do “Cindy” and “Annie”.
20 minute AMRAP
- 5 pullups
- 10 pushups
- 15 squats
I completed 11 rounds in 20 minutes. The first two rounds I did the pushups on my toes and the rest of the rounds I split my push-up, 5 on my toes and 5 on my knees.
- Double Unders
- Abmat Situps
Since I didn’t have my double unders (yet) I did 3 times the amount of single jumps (150-120-90 and so on). I have been working at double unders for about 2 years or so. Most attempts resulted in welts on my legs or butt. This workout had so many jumps and I was getting tired. While jumping I got into a good groove and thought, “Why don’t I just try a double under?!” So I did and….I NAILED IT! I was in shock that I did it. I looked around wishing someone was there to see it and then started dancing. I wanted to see if it was a fluke so I started jumping rope and once I got into a good grove….boom! Double Under! So I did two double unders. Not in a row. Not even in the same set, but I did them! I am hoping to continue to work them until I can do them continuously. I completed “Annie” in 11 minutes.
I refueled with a small glass of chocolate milk.
Of course I celebrated my double under victory with a glass of wine. The bottle of wine was also a gift from my friend Belle. It is a bold red blend.
For dinner I made stir fry with chicken and veggies over brown rice.
I spent the rest of the evening chatting with bestie May and catching up on GIRLS. That show is seriously amazing!!!
