Getting ready at home after CrossFit is a definite improvement. It makes things less stressful the night before and as I walk out the door in the morning. I don't have to worry about anything, but getting dressed and getting myself to the box. When I get home, I worry about everything else. I got to work at exactly 8:30 again today, so I feel good that this is the go forward plan.
I have to get up at 5:30 (which is REALLY early for me), so I get in bed at 9:30, lights out by 10:00. As I walked into my bedroom last night, I wondered how my upstairs neighbors had installed a washing machine in their bedroom! After a little while, I realized that it was a treadmill. It was still before 10pm, so I didn't feel like they were being rude or anything, but once it hit 10:00 and lights out, I was annoyed. At 10:35, they slowed to their cool down and quit around 10:40. By then, I couldn't sleep and it was 11:30 the last time I looked at the clock. Bleh!
But they are flaky, so surely they won't keep to this committment for longer than a few days, right? I mean, seriously. Who runs for an HOUR on a treadmill consistently? Please say "no one".
But I did get up for CrossFit and had a successful day. We did one rep maxes for Front Squats and Push Presses. These are examples to show you what I mean. I can't figure out how to move a video from Facebook to here, so you don't get to see me. This is a front squat and this guy is lifting a bajillion pounds. I lifted 145#.
The one in the middle is a Push Press and I lifted 105#. I was really pleased with that! Kinda felt a little of the Badass Unicorn for a minute. Man, I want more of that feeling.
Tonight I'm meeting my sorority daughter for dinner. She is just the sweetest and I love getting to spend time with her! We always meet at Mexican place between our respective cities. My plan is to be satisfied with a healthy salad...not the taco one with sour cream and cheese...yum! If I say it here, I must do it. A fajita salad with salsa for dressing it is.
