The biggest surprise of the day yesterday was that I burn more calories during Jazzercise than I do at CrossFit. I love that!! Getting the extra calorie burn at Jazzercise while building my strength at CrossFit makes me feel like I have found a great fitness balance!!
Before last night's class started, I was talking with Pukey and NotPukey. NotPukey said that they were talking about me on Saturday that I had a really good pace on my warm up run. YAY! You know you have really improved when people actually notice it. That made me feel good.
We started out with a 400m warm up run. I didn't do as well as Saturday, I don't think, but I do feel like I'm getting a little stronger with the running.
Sidenote: every year at Christmas SIL gives me a calender with all sorts of family pictures. It is my favorite gift every year and I LOVE that she does it. This month, July, has pictures from the 5K we did last year. There is a cute picture of Nephtwo (my second nephew, hence the two...) running. Another picture is Nephtwo, SIL, & me pre-race. The last and biggest pic is of me running to the finish line with SIL behind me with her hands in the air doing a victory cheer. It makes me smile every single day. In fact, now almost a year later, I'm MORE impressed with what I accomplished that day. I'm stronger, in better shape and smaller than I was on that day, but still...the thought of running a consistent 3.1 miles sounds hard. That I did it then is amazing to me. I want to do the 5K again when I go visit the family in September. Part of me is scared to death that I won't push myself in the same way, but I'm going for it.
Back to CrossFit...after the warm up, we practiced deadlifts with 65 pounds. I have a little bit of soreness in my lower back today, so I think I need to work on my form a little. It isn't a bad pain, but enough to keep it in my mind. We also practiced our pull ups. Last time, even with the ginormous rubber band, I wasn't able to get over the bar. This time, with the band, I was able to string two or three together about 4 times. It was a great feeling, but I still have A LOT of work to do.
WOD: 400m run, 15 walking lunges, 15 Thrusters (weight above the head 35#), 15 ring rows, 15 KTE (this is a move where you hang from the bar and try to pull up your knees to your elbows. Knee To Elbow. I find it extremely hard and barely got in 10 super sad ones.), 400m run. It was an exhausting workout! I'm getting stronger though!!
I made some good food choices yesterday. I avoided the chocolate at work that I wanted. I had my leftovers again and I'm still not tired of the meat that I grilled on Sunday. That's good!
The scale is being nice to me. I am down almost 3 pounds since Monday. According to my stats, I should be down 1/2 pound, so either I'm losing some water weight that I gained when I started CrossFit or I'm dehydrated. Who knows. Anyway, I'm going to walk with Godmother at lunch today and I'm going to Jazzercise tonight.
One day at a time. One meal at a time. One workout at a time. One good decision at a time.
