WOD – 8/7/2014

So today was my first day back to the gym since Monday. I normally make it three times a week, but my daughter was sick. I figured since I missed Wednesday, I had better haul my ass there today. I’m so glad I did. I miss the class when I’m not going.

Today the warm up was squats (!!!), it was good, even though I was just now not sore from Monday’s squats and burpees. 25 squats, 10 burpees, twice.

The WOD was a 21-18-15-12 of Deadlifts, I did 75 pounds and a 480 m. run. It felt like a crap ton of running.

I’ve been super good about sticking to Paleo these last couple weeks also. I didn’t have breakfast right away, but after I got back to work from the gym I had a scone that I made using this recipe as a base. So good.

Then for lunch I had the total of half a bell pepper, some guacamole, 4 slices of salami and a nectarine.

Dinner tonight was Bacon Chorizo Smothered Meatloaf with steamed broccoli.

So good.

Somewhere in there today I had two squares of dark chocolate, but it met the paleo requirements. yum.



Workout – 8/4/2014

So today was a good day!

I stuck to the Paleo diet all day. My only cheats are that I through a tiny splash of milk into my coffee. It makes me enjoy it more. and if a little dairy is my only ‘cheat,’ then it’s worth it.

Even though I’ve been going to the gym for more than a month now, I still get a little nervous before I walk into the box. I’m not sure why, but I’m getting over it.

I get to class and the usual instructor is not there. Alex was training us today. One thing I like about new trainers is that they get you to work on things. He had me work on my squat. I changed my form enough, that I was losing balance, so I had a box behind me in case I fell on my ass. ha

Here’s what was on our whiteboard:

Warm Up:
240 m. run
25 push ups
25 squats

3 rounds for time
25 squats
15 power cleans
25 sit ups
15 box jumps

I finished in 14:03.

Not my best, not my worst, but I feel good.
