Good Morning People!
I have been at it this week with the workouts! This week is a shorter week at my gym, so I had class Monday and Tuesday. I wanted to make sure I got in as much as I could before I stuff my face on Thursday. And yes, I will be stuffing my face. Not overdoing it too much, but a good face stuffing here and there never hurt anyone 🙂
What are you looking forward to on Thanksgiving? I, most of all, am looking forward to time spent with family ❤
These are my workouts from this week so far, lets break down how I did:
We did Squat Clean practice – 6×3. I improved! My weight went from 55 lbs to 65 lbs! I felt kinda stuck at 55 lbs, I am so glad I am stronger so I can increase it. Not saying I want to be a body builder by any means, but this experience has totally changed my perspective on fitness and what I want out of mine. So, yeah, I want to be fit an able to lift a bunch of weight.
Then we had a 15 minute WOD – 4 rounds.
10 Alternating DB snatches – 35 lbs! – I really like snatches, I have since I started them, I felt 35 lbs was challenging too. But I did it!
15 Hollow Rocks – now these bad Larry’s….. ugh. I got through them, but thought I was going to snap in half. They totally sound like fun, like you are a human see saw, until you do them.
25 Double Unders – so we could count our Double Under Attempts, which I did not hear the first round, so I did a bunch. My DU’s are still a work in progress, but I got 4 in a row, so that was good. I got a lot more than I have in the past in the workout, so more progress.
My time was 16:04 ( they let me finish the last of the DU’s) I finished later, but I finished. And for me, that is cool beans.
We did Back Squat technique and practice and handstand practice before the WOD.
50 Back Squats – 55 lbs
40 V ups
30 Power Cleans – 55 lbs
20 Lateral Hop Burpees – oh my Sweet Baby Jesus! Burpees are my current nemesis. They take me forever. Mostly because I cannot get my legs to jump in, so I kinda waddle it in. I really need to find a way to get better at them. Honestly, we do them a lot and I feel I should be better, guess it is going to take some at home practice.
10 Hand stands – okay, so It was supposed to be handstand push ups, but I am not there yet. At least I am on the wall, and can do a handstand. I have to work on getting myself to stay on the wall. But at least I did not fall this time! I will say this again, though, Hand Stands are totally mental more than physical.
My time for this was 18:34 .
2 nights in a row, after being out for 2 weeks felt really good. Getting back into full swing. I feel like I am at home in my gym with my awesome peeps.
To date, I am down 35 lbs! Oh yeah baby! I would love to be down another 15 by the end of the year, but I do not think that is realistic for me. I have been losing about 5 lbs a month. And with all the holiday food that will be coming and make its way to my face, its going to be a challenge. But , you know, this year, I feel I am better equipped to make better decisions, and maybe will stay away from the 2nd serving of mashed potatoes.

Hope you all have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving !!!
