Holy Crap it’s one week until my wedding! This time next week I will already be married! I am so excited I can’t even stand it. I just want the time to fly by. This week did go pretty quick because I was so incredibly busy. Wednesday I made it to my usual class at CrossFit. The wod was way tougher than it looked once I got started. We started with some skill work and we worked on pistols. I am happy to report I totally got them and was able to do some- only on the one leg could I get all the way down. It felt pretty awesome because I haven’t been able to do them before. I also got to rock my new tank Wednesday night and I got some compliments.
EMOTM for 12 minutes
rest of the min thrusters (I used 12 lbs)
This was painful. I found it really tough to catch my breath in between rounds. My lungs aren’t what they were pre-pneumonia yet. I went back to the doctor for my follow up and he thought it sounded better. I do have a puffer now to use during workouts when I need it.
Thursday morning I got up and did a short workout just to get moving and get off to a good start. I did a few rounds with squats, push ups and v-sits. I also decided to finally take my progress pics for my coach and take my measurements and I was so excited to see the end result. I say the end but it’s not, I have no intention of stopping now.
When I think about all the work and dedication that I put in I feel so proud of myself. I didn’t miss out on anything. I just thought about my food choices and decided if I REALLY wanted it or not. I drank a lot less beer and alcohol over the summer, but I still indulged when I wanted to. Having a meal plan to follow really helped me, and I also had a lot of support from my friends and family.
This is the thing I learned the most. Just the workouts weren’t going to get me to my goal. I had to look long and hard at my eating habits and make some changes. I am so glad I did, not just because of the results physically but also with how I feel. I FEEL healthier. I also went from a weight of 137 to 122lbs. Changes. And people can see it and it feels pretty awesome.
Thursday evening I got home and had time to workout before J got home and was debating skipping it but a friend of mine texted me and said, don’t skip it. She even texted me some workout ideas. I ended up doing 300 squats and 200 sit ups and then did some arm work with my dumbbells. I was glad I got it done.
Today I managed to get out of work on time to hit up CrossFit again. Today’s was a killer!
1 min plate push
1 min wall sit
1 min squats
1 min plank
1 min push ups
1 min box step ups
I was really glad when that was over. I plan to be back at it again tomorrow morning! This weekend there is a ton for me to do. I have a bunch of errands to do to get ready for the big day NEXT WEEK!
I hope you all had an amazing week!
What are you proud of lately?
How do you convince yourself to workout when you are feeling lazy?
I often text a friend who I know will tell me to get up and get to it. it works!
1 min rest
