Woke up bright and early this morning for my Saturday run…. (that’s what I thought at least…)
Did my 26 burpees and snacked on some peanut butter – 1 pt
*Ran 5 miles with the running group* (+8) The girls had been invited to a CrossFit gym and they asked me if I was interested??? At first, I said no… but then I though… WHY NOT? I have heard so many things about the hard core work outs and I guess I was a little intimidated. But since I would be there with friends, I decided that it was a good opportunity and I wanted to go! I came home for a quick protein fruit smoothie – 2 pts
We all piled into Tonya’s car and headed over to CrossFit Kemah. She started telling us what we could expect and I was definitely feeling nervous. When we got there we started out with a warm up… after that she taught me how to climb a rope! This is something I have never done before… but it was really cool to make it to the top! (I think it was 15 ft… not sure… I need to ask her again)
The work out of the day (WOD)…. “Blake” (From the CrossFit Kemah Website)
“U.S. Navy Senior Chief Cryptologic Technician David Blake McLendon, 30, of Thomasville, Georgia, assigned to Naval Special Warfare Group 2 Support Activity in Norfolk, Virginia, was killed September 21, 2010, in a helicopter crash during combat operations in the Zabul province of Afghanistan. McLendon is survived by his wife Kate McLendon, his parents David and Mary-Ann McLendon, his brother Chris McLendon, and his sister Kelly Lockman.”
This place in INTENSE! After round 3 I was ready to puke… but it was so motivating to be in a room with people that were pushing themselves to the limit. I have never done box jumps like this before… I have had 2 knee surgeries and I am always to scared to do them… but I made it through all 4 rounds… My calves were shaking by the end… and my shoulders were screaming! It was the best feeling of accomplishment e.v.e.r.! I have no idea how to count this as far as Weight Watcher Activity Points go….
I came home and made a protein pancake… I did not have any fresh fruit, so I smeared sugar free pudding all over the top! It was seriously good! 8 pts
After showering and laying down for a while to recover… I made some turkey chili with spaghetti squash and spinach – 5 pts
Torry came home with Skittles…. 4 pts
We went to the mall as a family and I had a Chick Fil A Salad – 7 pts
…. and samples…. my fave…… 4 pts
After grocery shopping and stocking up on some fresh produce, I had some half the fat ice cream – 3 pts
I am definitely ready for bed tonight! Have you ever tried a CrossFit work out???
