Back on Paleo – 5/15/14

As of Monday, I decided to back on what I consider strict paleo. Am I buying grassfed beef? Yeah, if Publix sells it. Am I eating peanuts? No. Dairy? Very little. Sugar? Nope. I’m even cutting sweet potatoes and rice right now, just to cut out the starches. The only starchy/sugary thing I’m eating is…

Crossfit Day 370 – 5/14/14

After two days in a row, I was surprised when I was like, screw it, let’s go again! Let’s go for 3 days in a row for old times sake. Done. Strength: Max Height Plyo Push UpI chickened out after 13.5″. But that was cool! That was like, 4 45lb plates stacked on each side.…

Crossfit Day 369 – 5/13/14

Something awakened in me this week. Re-awakened. Re-kindled. I don’t know what. But I feel amazing. I’ve made time each day to go to CF, and it’s just incredible how good I feel afterwards. I truly love CrossFit and owe so much to CFTC. With that being said, today’s WOD was a hard one, but…

Crossfit Day 366 – 5/7/14

Bench Press Day! I didn’t get very far. I laughed during 145 and couldn’t push the weight up. Stupid. My 1RM is 145 or 150, so whatever. I stopped at 125 and was okay with that. 🙂 The WOD consisted of banded push ups, which suck. I did my first 13 or 14 with the…

Crossfit Day 365 – 5/5/14

WOO! I did this one. I went, I got excited after my CF Day 364 post and made it happen. It was awesome. We’re doing Hatch Cycle again, and as I’ve said a hundred times, I hate it. So I just do back squats. Anywhere from 5-8 reps at a moderate weight. I think we…

Crossfit Day 364 – 4/29/14

We worked on our max snatch, and I pulled 125 and left it at that. 125 is my PR. Or 130. I don’t remember. I think it’s 130 from Wodapalooza but I couldn’t find any info on it grrr… WOD: Amanda9-7-5Muscle Ups (3 ring rows/3 ring dips per MU)Squat Snatch (135/95) Now.. I know this…

Crossfit Day 363 – 4/22/14

Rope Climbs. I have this love/hate relationship with them, I love them because I can do them, I hate them because they hurt and they wear me out. They hurt my hands, they hurt the top of my right foot where I pinch the rope, and yeah. They’re exhausting. But damn it, I can do…
