And...it's Monday again.

This morning I got up for CrossFit and started to get ready.  But I decided that I just didn't want to go and crawled back into bed.  But then I laid there feeling guilty and hating myself.  So I got up and hurried to get ready but when I was walking out the door, I saw that it was 6:15am.  Class starts at 6:00am and is 15 minutes away.  Sigh.  So I crawled back into bed so annoyed with myself.

Then I woke up.  Yep, it was all a very realistic dream.  I didn't know whether I was relieved that I could go to CrossFit or disappointed that I had to get up and go.  Ha!

Monday is my weigh in day.  After a week of super compliance with paleo (only non-compliant thing was the wine on Monday), I gained 1.8 pounds.  Sigh.  I shall forge ahead.  I promised myself 30 days no matter what, so I shall continue and not dwell on it.  I do feel good so it is what it is.

CrossFit was actually pretty great and intense today.  After warming up:

A.  10:00 OTM (on the minute) 2 Power Cleans at 80% of my one rep max.  We just found our one rep max last week which was 125# for me, so I used 100#.  It was heavy but doable and got easier the more I warmed up.

B.  5:00 OTM 1 Power Clean & Jerk at 85% of my one rep max.  So I added 5# to be at 105#.  This was tougher.  Even though you only did each move once, jerking it up over my head was really hard.  I think I was really doing more of a push press, but I got it up there.

C.  As if that wasn't enough, we finished with 10:00 of burpees.  We did get to pause from the burpees every 1:30 to do 30 double unders or in my case, lateral hops (jumping side to side).  So, I would break from burpees, by jumping up and down.  Yeesh.  It was a long 10 minutes.

But I did it! 

Today's meal plan:

Breakfast:  Black Coffee.  Leftover frittata.  I made a big oven baked frittata over the weekend with sausage, kale and parsley.  It is pretty good although I think I cooked it a scosh to long.  I topped it wish some salsa.

Lunch:  Paleo Shepherd's Pie.  I made this weekend and it is delicious!  It is ground beef and chorizo combined with some onion, adobo sauce and some spices to make a meatloaf.  Then I topped it with a sweet potato and cauliflower puree.  Yum!

Snack:  Turkey breast and a boiled egg.

Dinner:  Leftover chicken and veggies.  My chicken is from last weekend so I hope it is still good!

Snack:  If I need it I can have a serving of the homemade honey roasted pecans I made over the weekend.  I'm not a huge fan of honey, so there is no danger that I will OD on them.

Hugs!

I keep thinking about trying crosscut because there's a gym on my way home from work but I keep shying away from the cost. Is it worth it? I've been doing 30-day shred at home and it's great but I have a bad habit of getting home and getting busy with other things and then suddenly it's bed-time and I haven't exercised! Lol Maybe I'd do better if I just went on my way to or from work. Thanks for any insight you have into Crossfit!!

I hate to work out in the morning and have such respect for anyone that does! I even consider myself a morning person... weird, right?

Good work! I think that you will see your weight drop sometimes crossfit just doesnt help it happen as quickly as we think it should.

OH, I love honey! I lived almost my whole life without it but then I had to give it to my kids for sore throats and coughs, and now we always have it in the house! I especially love it on warm banana bread.Oh, let me stop because that's way too many carbs to even be thinking about!
