Sorry I haven’t posted this week folks! I am back in the full swing of classes and work has been super busy. So, I get home and crash, lol.
This week I really enjoyed the WOD’s. Here is how I did:
OH Squat practice 30 lbs – Ugh, these are not easy.
Chin Up Practice – green and tan band 4×5 reps. This gave me hope for my pull ups. I can so do the Chin Ups more easier than Pull Ups, I don’t quiet understand why, but I will take it. I was able to get my chin over the bar for every rep.
AMRAP 8 minutes
6 Goblet Squats – 44 lbs KB
12 V Ups
I got 6 rounds! I was shocked as shit at that.
10 Ring Dips – green band
20 Burpee Pull Ups – I can’t do these without changing it to jumping pull ups, so we changed it to 20 Burpees and 20 Pull Ups. My Burpees still suck, but not as bad. I am still the slowest but my slow is getting better. My Pull Ups need work though.
30 Wall Balls – 10 lbs MB
40 Double Unders
Cross Fit Total WOD
I loved this one! I really enjoy the barbells and I want to be stronger. But this was really fun, testing your limits and seeing how heavy you can go. We partnered up, I was with Nicole. She was a great partner. Here is how I did:
Back Squat – 130 lbs
Press – 55 lbs – who Nelly is that one hard!
Dead lift – 210 lbs !!!!! SOOOO Proud of that!
I am so proud of myself for the 210 dead lift. So, of course, I am telling people about it. And the responses have mainly been ” Better be careful about your back” ” thats a lot of weight, do you think you should do that?” WHAT THE EVER LIVING FRACK?!?!? Why do people think that I was just walking along, minding my business, saw a barbell on the ground and was like ” Hey there, let me try to pick you up, with no training, no coaching, just let me grab it?” UGH! Everyone that knows me and their brother knows I have been doing Cross Fit for almost a year now, so of course, I know the proper way to do it, and my coaches are right there. It just stinks cause I am so proud of this and people will take any chance they get to kick you down.
And for the record, I used to have back problems, bad sciatica. Haven’t had it for years, but here and there twinges and pains. Since I started this – I have had no back problems! So there , mo fo’s!
I have come such a far way, and I have so far to go, but damn, its exciting! I am so energized to keep this going.
My weight has plateaued at the moment, but honestly, I am not letting that keep me down, I just gotta keep going. I gotta keep swimming!
Doing good on my Weekly One More too! had some eggplant yesterday!
This Phoenix is rising bitches! Get Ready!
