It’s been so long, I don’t even really know where to start! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about the direction I would like my blog to take. I think it’s coming time I should split things up… so, I’m going to continue this rant about fitness and nutrition, but create an additional blog that focusses more on MS. I’m sure they will make guest appearances within each other at times, but we’ll just have to see I guess!
My life has been a bit of a shit storm the last little while… last weekend was the Henry’s Expo in Mississauga, which is always great fun, but WICKED hours. After working 50 hours in 4 days, I was pretty run down by the time Monday rolled in. Last week was a total write-off in terms of crossfit, in less I can count the heavy lifting I did at the show, as well as the 12.5kms I walked on Saturday alone! Yes, I’m that much of a nerd that I wore a pedometer just for fun. :p
On the topic of crossfit, last Tuesday I made an appointment to do a trial session at the crossfit gym in Waterloo. Humbled yet again. The 10 minute workout the trainer put me through was not to the performance level I thought I was at. We focused on proper form when doing squats, push-ups and pull-ups… I now understand the reasoning behind pull-ups instead of chin-ups. He filled me in after the workout that pull-ups let you use more muscle groups than just your biceps… my arms were TOAST. I want to go back… I think… but not before I work on some stuff by myself a bit :-S
Nutrition has been spot-on 🙂 I took my own lunches and snacks to the Expo so that I could eat well, while all the others stuffed their faces with candy, pizza and chocolate. Small indulgence came when I snuck a few cashew clusters… but I really didn’t feel all that guilty, all things considered…
