Another day in paradise as some might say.
It’s been 3 weeks since I came back into the blogging world. THREE WEEKS! Three weeks since I told everyone I’m tired of being fat! And now I’m just convinced I’m ok staying fat and sassy. It’s too much work!
Just kidding! I’m doing better than I thought I would be doing. Time is just clipping along. I was 2 weeks behind in getting body measurements, but I finally remembered to do it and jotted all my numbers down. Hopefully in several weeks I can give a positive status report.
Again with the food, I’m doing alright. WAY better than what was going on before 3 weeks ago, but still a long ways to go. I gave my numbers to Coach Travis yesterday and he went through and highlighted the good and the bad. And I already mostly knew what was bad but it was different seeing it highlighted and in my face. Coach T said if anything make sure you get the protein number in check. And well I’m pretty on point with that. I’m still eating too much fat and not enough carbs. And sometimes my sodium and sugar is way off the chart but those were really off days. Those were the days that I ate something packaged or from a “fast food” place.
Monday through Friday, I’m golden. Even Saturdays aren’t too bad! It’s Sundays! Booooo Sundays. So my immediate goal is to get Sunday under wraps. It was better than the weekend before but it’s still ugly. Baby steps. I’m not at the point to go cold turkey. I still have my vices!
I’ve been moving though. I made it to 4 workouts last week. I’m hoping Friday and Saturday are workouts 5 & 6 but I’m not making any promises! My youngest son got picked up to play baseball this weekend and I don’t know the Saturday schedule yet. So it might be a record workout week for me if I can get 6 workouts in.
Unlike a lot of people, I really enjoy working out. I’m not always excited about it but I don’t mind it at all. And it feels good once you’re done. The sense of accomplishment is always rewarding. The endorphins wake you up… energize you and it’s worth it.
I was kind of dragging during yesterday’s workout but it involved box jumps. I haven’t done box jumps in a while. I’m a lot heavier than the last time I did box jumps. I already have an irrational fear of jumping on the box so I paused and hesitated a lot. It wasn’t a lot of reps, but they came right after squat cleans. I’m still not a point where I’m pushing myself at heavier weights but squat cleans at 85 lbs adds up and then you want me to jump on a box?!? My legs are smoked. I don’t trust them. I finally got through it all and I wasn’t as dead. Am I getting a little bit better? Or did I just rest too much? Either way, it is what it is. I showed up. I did work. And I ate healthier!
Wish me luck for the weekend! Especially Sunday! And if you’re local and want to check out some fun things we are doing at CrossFit Boom, leave a comment. There’s a Running Clinic on Friday at 6:30 p.m. and a Lifting Clinic on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. Both coaches are amazeballs and it should be fun 🙂
