I want to start off saying that it NEVER gets easy waking up at 5:00 am for a workout. I've been going 3 times a week and I still have a hard time waking up in the mornings, and if it wasn't for the $115 I pay a month and bikini season coming up I probably wouldn't go.
I've lost 3 pounds....yes only 3 pounds. I do a great job working out and eating healthy during the week, but its the weekends that kill me. Starting this weekend I'm going to do a better job about eating healthy. Its not worth all my hard work on the weekdays to screw it up with chicken wings and beer on Saturday.
I feel myself getting stronger. I hate lifting weights but I've noticed a difference in my arms and butt. Which makes me sooooo happy!!!
Here are the workouts I did within the last week
Front Squat 3-3-3 (the 3-3-3 means finding your max 3 reps at a time)
4R4T ( this means 4 rounds for time, crossfit is all about getting the best time)
AMRAP 20min (AMRAP= as many rounds as possible for 20 minutes)
this workout I ended up running a mile 1/2 and doing 27 pullups I SUCK at pullups
Squat Clean 5-3-1
Shoulder Press 5-3-1
max effort 2K row (rowing looks easy but its killer)
AMRAP in 15min of: (as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes)
10 MB Cleans ( 10 medicine ball squat cleans)
3 Wall Climbs (basically you're on your hands and you use your legs to climb up a
wall and basically doing a handstand...so freaking hard)
10 Man-makers (this is so hard to explain but I can tell you this shit is hard)
Yes Crossfit is hard and a lot of times I feel discouraged because I can't lift as much weight as some as the other women, and my time is not nearly the best. But I love it...
This is whats keeping me motivated....I just got the new Victoria's Secret swimsuit catalog in the mail
and this is what I want to be able to wear and look halfway decent
I was so excited when I found out they made the Bombshell bra into swimwear!!! I have to have this bikini
This summer the hubby and I are going to Vegas and this cover up would be great to lounge around in poolside!!
Well that's my crossfit update, stay tuned for the next one!!
