Well friends, all is right in the world again. J is home and we are back to normal. It was so nice to see him and have him home.
Yesterday seemed like the longest day ever because I was excited all day for him to return (yes I know it was only 4 days, but it felt like eternity). I went to Crossfit after work and it was a terrible workout. The WOD wasn’t terrible, it was me. I had NO energy. My leg was killing me and I had to modify the whole workout. It felt like it would never end and I just wasn’t into it. It was five rounds and I thought about quitting after round 3 and again after 4 but I didn’t. I kept going.
I guess this is true… at least I went and finished it
I think there are a lot of reasons why my workout just wasn’t working for me. One is I didn’t drink a lot of water over the weekend, so I was likely dehydrated. I need to up my water intake for sure. I am working on it today. Also, I have been eating some pretty crappy foods the last little while and I am sure that didn’t help. Finally, lack of sleep. I definitely haven’t been getting enough sleep and that affects my whole day, not just my workout.
Anyway- the WOD. 5 rounds, 1 minute rowing, 1 minute push ups, 1 minute weighted sit ups, 1 minute rest. This was the modified version of the workout I did. The rest of the class did different movements. It was kind of a version of Fight Gone Bad I think. We also did a strength WOD of back squats and strict pull ups. I chose not to squat and did push press. We did 5 rounds of 2 reps, with 3 pull ups in between. I didn’t go higher than 55lbs which is light for me for 2 reps. That just shows how weak I was feeling yesterday.
After we got home we got organized and showered etc and then J came home! C went running outside to greet him and I couldn’t stop hugging him (awwwww). I made us these quesadillas for dinner and they turned out delicious. I used cheese and the ground sausage, tomato and artichoke mixture I cooked up Sunday night and served it with a fried egg on top. Delicious!! I really liked it with the egg. It added some good flavour.
Tonight is our busy night so I don’t think there will be anything too exciting to post about later. Hope everyone is having a Happy Tuesday!
Halloween is coming- any exciting plans??
We are going to two different events this weekend.
Do you like dressing up?
I am really not a fan of it, but I love going out to the dress up events. It’s fun seeing all the costumes.
