First of all, Paleo has been good, and I’ve had no problems sticking with it. I need to cut back a bit on the fruit though, and just have a little bit here and there, instead of trying to make a meal out of it. Eating chicken and veggies has been fairly simple, and good, and I’m not sick of it yet. 21 more days and we’ll see how I feel about it then..
Crossfit has been awesome, as usual, but I have found that (like I said last night) if I don’t push myself has hard as I can, and really challenge myself during the workouts, I feel like I’m cheating myself or like I’m missing out on something. I can’t describe it. (I keep encountering shit that I can’t describe. It’s unsettling to me to try and express how I feel in a way that doesn’t make sense, so.. I apologize if a lot of this info has already been partially described before..)
This is the first whole week where I haven’t gone to spin, and I thought last week that I’d be replacing spin class with Crossfit and attempting to do it 5 days a week, but maybe it’s a good idea to have the mix of workouts. Without spin, I don’t get nearly the cardio workout, and is 5 days of Crossfit too much for my body to handle? At least right now?
I completely pushed myself this morning with my Dali kids (nice job, you all!!) but now that I’m sitting here 14 hours later (Jesus, has it been 14 hours since I worked out??? That’s insane..) I feel like I should be doing something else. Tonight would have normally been the night I went to spin, but because I went to CF this morning with some of our employees, I didn’t spin. Should I have? Lots of questions…
This week will be all changed up too, as Dave and I are going out of town Wednesday and Thursday, which means I won’t be working out til Thursday evening at the earliest. Another weird feeling to me, since this past weekend was the first time I went 2 whole days without a workout in over a month, and my body is already like, wtf, we aren’t doing anything, what’s the deal? I almost want to put a little workout together for the morning to do before we leave, just so I’ve done SOMETHING good for myself.
My knees both feel amazing. I am not sure why… considering that we ran even ran a little today! (I didn’t even flinch at the one lap around the building.. I got this!) They’re sore from the squats and whatnot, not painful sore, but more like, I’m aware that they’re there kind of sore.. but they definitely don’t hurt, even my left one! Which is just super awesome.
It feels selfish to be concerned with my workouts while we’re out of town, and I’m hoping we’re back early enough for me to make one of the NEW 7p classes on Thursday!! Or maybe I should go for the 5:30p, so that I’m ready for the 11a one on Friday, haha Either way, I’m ready to get back into a routine, which will be difficult, since we’ve got the Home and Patio Show coming up at the end of next week, and then one week of normalcy, and then we’ll be down in Miami for Ultra Music Fest. Luckily, the month of April should be smooth sailing, and I’ll finally be able to lock down a solid routine again. By then, who knows where I’ll be?
Anyway, before I get too carried away, our workout today was:
15 min AMRAP
10 cal row
10 SDLHP (35lbs)
Mitch (our Creative Director at Dali) and I both finished 4 rounds, yes!! I’m going to go ahead and put my workout together tonight so that in the morning, it’s all planned out and I just have to DO it. Kind of excited about this. Obviously not the same at home, but it’s better than nothing. 🙂
