I earned 25 points yesterday in my What's The Point? Challenge. If I wouldn't have had a pudding cup when I got home last night, I would have earned another 5 points, but my tummy was growling and I didn't think I would be able to fall asleep. It's all good.
Support Group was great last night as usual. I got to see fellow bloggers, Debi and Andrea which is always awesome. There were new folks and veterans and it amazes me how I get something from it every single time.
I was especially happy when the scale took back all my bloat from yesterday. I guess it was just a warning shot, thank goodness! But I heard my body loud and clear and I'm planning to do better this weekend. Speaking of that...all you people out there that cook for your families, what are your favorite go-to meals that are easy, delicious and healthy? I need a plan and if things are too complicated, I know I won't do it.
CrossFit was good this morning, as always. We started with an 800m warm up run. Y'all know I loved that. Bach wasn't there today and TD was our trainer. He likes the warm up so we did a lot of back and forths: butt kicks, high knees, inch worms, bear crawls, lunging trunk twists...I swear I was drenched before we even started the "workout"!
Today we worked on Muscle Ups again. I told you about those last week where you pull yourself up and over the bar. I used to be able to do that in kindergarten, but not these days. I have to use a big giant rubber band to even do a pull up, but at least those are starting to look passable!
The WOD: 1000m row, 50 overhead squats with bar, 30 pull ups. Four of us started on the row and only the guy beat me. 1000m is longer than you might think! :) I like to set the tension heavier so it is harder to pull, but you get more distance with each pull. But then I got to the overhead squats and tried to use a normal girl's bar (35#) and just couldn't keep it up there. I switched to a 16# bar and I was able to keep my form for the rest of the squats. I did ALL 30 pull ups! I used the big green rubber band and I did them in rounds of 5, but I did them all! That is improvement for sure. It was nice because I was trying to get my foot into the rubber band and I couldn't reach, so a guy stopped his pull ups and came over to help me. That is a perfect example of why I love CrossFit!
Anyway, not sure if I will be able to use my arms this afternoon, but I'm feeling good!!
