Oh yes it is… where does time go? Seriously. The kids are now on summer break and I am not! (Why oh why didn’t I become a teacher?) I’ve now been doing the CrossFit for 9 months! I can hardly believe it. Am I stronger? YES! Am I healthier? YES! Am I a NINJA? YES! No? Ok maybe not really but I like to believe I have some wicked ninja potential.
But also on the flip side I still deal with issues such as my weight, my eating habits and my mental state in regards to what “fit” is. I can tell you though that in the past year and a half I have come a long way, mentally and physically. And yet I still have that fat girl in my head saying ugly things. As the cliché goes, we are our own worst critic. I am extremely harsh on myself and it’s hard to break that habit. I’m dealing and I’m getting better. I just needed to get it out and let y’all know I’m human. I’m not on a soapbox or anything and I want to be clear about it. I’m always pushing the Paleo, CrossFit and getting healthy AND I’m not here to say it’s easy. I’m here to say it’s work and it can be hard sometimes and you gotta put time in but it’s all possible if you WANT it! It’s possible if you put aside your excuses – the what if’s, the but’s and the I’m really happy with myself cause I like to eat and there’s NO WAY I’m giving _____ up! I could go on and on. No time. I have kids. They won’t eat what I need to eat. My husband, My wife. NO support… blah blah blah. I hear ya. I can hear you saying it now. I’m hoping today is the day you say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. But it’s the weekend Stephanie. I can’t do it now. It’s Pizza night! I’m here to tell you YOU CAN. So just grow up a little and put your big girl panties on and at least make a plan to start.
Alright Alright if you’re still reading. I’m DONE for now. I need to recap my BOOMERIFIC morning. I feel the need for some dun dun dun sound effects: Drama Button
30 Back Squats (Body Weight)
1 mile run
Yuuuupppp! Insane right? Well my body weight is damn near my MAX Back Squat so we took a percentage of our body weight. My weight today for Back Squats was 100lbs even. Not super heavy but 30 reps is A LOT! I should have kept better time at when I finished the squats so I could gauge my run. It’s not easy taking off to run after so many squats in a row. I broke the 30 up – 1 set of 10 and 4 sets of 5. I thinkI finished somewhere between 3 and 4 minutes but I am not certain. Overall time: 13:54. One more time for those of you who don’t follow along regularly. I suck at running, I don’t like running and yes I suck at running. Unlike on Monday where I walked some of the mile due to my poor eating and the blazing sun, I’m happy to report I did not stop this time. In the past I typically don’t stop anyways but my self sabotaging eating habits really screwed me over this week. My wannabe skinny girl in my head kept saying, Coach just made you weigh in to determine backsquat and it is not a number you are happy with so DON’T STOP! And I didn’t. I forget how long it takes to rid your “clean” body of “junky foods” but I’m thinking it’s still a while. Just gotta keep keepin on!
I think the plan this weekend is to check out a local farm that’s not too far away. Hopefully I’ll be a good lil blogger and take some pics to share.
Hope y’all have a ADVENTUROUS and AWESOME weekend!
