I made it up for CrossFit!! That is a win no matter what. Today wasn't my most stellar of days, but I still feel great. It was 38 degrees when I got there this morning. Brrrrrrr! We did a 400m run warm up (I mentioned that the the running is outside, right?) We spent some time stretching and then we went into the WOD.
15:00 AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
- 5 Hand Stand Push Ups
- 10 Pistols
- 15 Pull Ups
Pistols are one legged squats. To be honest, these hurt my knees and I just did the best I could. Last week we decided that I should graduate to the blue band for pull ups. I did them but they were kind of pathetic. But the important part was that for 15 minutes, my heart rate sky rocketed AND I was having fun. After the WOD, we ran another 400m. I'm getting better at that distance, but I'm still WAY behind the class. No worries. Baby steps.
I earned 27 points yesterday in my What's the Point challenge. I was extra good with my calories yesterday, so yay!!
NSV alert: I bought a pendant in Italy several years ago and it is on a delicate little gold chain. I hardly ever wore it because it was really too short and it felt like it was choking me. Also, it was so delicate that I felt like I would break it pulling it away from my neck. Today, I thought I would try it again. Not only did it fit, I'm wearing it around a turtleneck!! I guess that's what losing 3.5" off your neck will do!!
Here is my new outfit of the day:
Today we are going out to lunch for my boss's birthday and we are going to Razzoo's. I LOVE that place! My old meal would have been a full order of onion rings followed by the jambalaya pasta. I would always be so proud of taking half of the pasta home for dinner. After a giant plate of greasy onion rings! I feel quite sure that even with 1/2 the pasta is was a 2000+ calorie lunch. Yikes!
I have been staying on track lately the best I have since the first 9 months after surgery. I'm on par to lose over 6 pounds this month which I haven't done since March!! So, I just have to be good today. That means I have to be good at lunch. My plan is to order grilled fish & veggies and ask that they do not cook them in butter. I do love fish, so I should be content with that. I can't imagine that they wouldn't do it! If I get hungry later, I have some hummus back at the office.
That is all I need to do today to make the day entirely successful. I have already worked out. I already have almost 75 ounces of water in, so 100+ won't be a problem. I just have to focus on the calories. This is my Achilles heel people so send me some good mojo!
