Life is good

Life is good.  Like, been walking around with a big smile on my face for days kinda good.  This past Saturday I asked my girl to marry me.  Like, for real.  We’ve daydreamed together about our wedding for a long time and I was ready to finally work towards making it actually happen. ❤ A friend commented on Sunday out of the blue how much he admires our relationship.  He loves how much we obviously care about each other and the respect we both share.  There was more to his little speech but my not-so-rock-solid memory has misplaced it at the moment… Anyways, he made me smile cause it’s true 🙂  We can truly be ourselves together.  A couple of geeks who do silly things and laugh non-stop.  We both could spend the whole day cuddling and watching neflix and be perfectly happy.  We like adventures together but we also like the less exciting times too! Life is good. 😀

Last weekend was a long weekend and for once we had no real plans, so what do you do when you have a whole 3 days to waste? Workout and make food!!  By Monday my pretty much everything hurt.  It was awesome!!

I’m going to talk food in a separate post, cause the workout recap is tedious and I can ramble on about food and nutrition for ages too.

Friday Sept 1 2017

HERO Friday – Brownwood Dallas 5
50 Burpees
then…
10 Wallballs
10 Shoulder to Overhead 65lbs
10 Pull-ups
10 Box Jumps
10 Sit-ups
5 Rounds
then…
800m Run
Time – 28:25 Rx

Well, this was a challenging one no question.  My cardio is horrible right now.  I’m disappointed in myself for letting it get so bad, but overall I feel better when I’m not squeezing runs in on top of my already busy life so I’ll survive I guess.  Except we’re competing in Festivus Games again in just over a month and I don’t want to totally suck.

Saturday Sept 2 2017

100 Air Squats
90 Double Unders
80 Jumping Pull-ups
70 Sit Ups
60 Push Ups
50 KB Sumo Deadlifts 32kg
40 DB Push Press 25lbs
30 Weighted DB Box Step Ups 25lbs
20 Burpees
10 Man Makers 25lbs

We did this one as a partner WOD, cause Saturday is partner WOD day.  Even split in half if was pretty rough! Can’t imagine doing it as individuals.

Sunday Sept 3 2017

1. STRENGTH – BACK SQUAT
8 Minutes to Build to a HEAVY 5 Reps 135lbs
7 Minutes to Build to a HEAVY 3 Reps 155lbs
6 Minutes to Build to a HEAVY 1 Rep 175lbs
2. OLYMPIC LIFTING – SPLIT JERK
EMOM, 12 Minutes
Complete 1 Split Jerk, adding weight each round
3. SKILLS (skipped today!)
4. CONDITIONING
800m Run
30 Cal Row
25 Burpees
20 Squat Clean 75lbs
5.BARBARA
20 Pull-ups
30 Push-ups
40 Sit-ups
50 Air Squats
5 Rounds

Ok, I was tired today.  Friday and Saturday flattened me a little… well the legs anyways.  Got chatting and missed the skills portion which I was relatively ok with since I really didn’t feel like 55 HSPU (or going upside down at all if I’m being honest).  I kinda fluffed Barbara as well.  Still got a good workout though! 😀 Sundays are so much fun and now that hoceky is done we can actually go to them.

Monday Sept 4 2017

400m Run

100 Hang Power Cleans 65lbs
50 Burpees
100 Shoulder to Overhead 65lbs
50 Deadlifts 165lbs
400m Run
Time – 41:41 Rx

HOLY CRAP!!  But I’d totally do this one again.

let it rest

Today is a rest day.  Parts of my body are definitely screaming “thank gawd!” while my brain is hating the idea, as usual.  With the heavier front squats thrown into the mix yesterday for the first time in quite a while, my quads are sore today.  I didn’t even go that heavy?  Almost went even lighter, but one of my fellow crossfitters (and also one of my heroes when it comes to heavy lifting cause she’s little and lifts crazy weights like it’s nothing) called me out on “under-loading” my bar.  When Coach Dave asked “could you have done a 4th rep?” and I hesitated to answer, “add MORE weight!” was the verdict.  My quads are… thanking?… me today.  Love the feeling 🙂  and the squats felt great too.  I’m just not reaching for any new PR’s right now since my vacation will be here soon enough and I already have big quads.  Don’t know if I’ve mentioned it yet, but I tell myself every day – I WILL have abs for this bikini session.  Like, visible ones.  Part of the reasoning behind the scrapping of the sweet potatoes and butternut squash.  I think I was just enjoying them a little too much and I’ve gotten squishy again.  I work too hard to be squishy.  It sucks.  :p

Speaking of rest… With quite a few years as a photographer, I know how to read a histogram, but I have no idea what this means :p  Other than providing proof that I have a crazy early bedtime.  I downloaded the sleep cycle alarm clock just for fun, but it seems I have to sleep with my phone in bed beside me for 5 nights before it will give me a sleep rating :p  I read months ago that keeping technological devices in your bedroom actually interrupted your quality of sleep?  Now I’m purposely keeping my phone in bed with me?  We’ll see I guess 😉
