And in Texas we don’t just get one or the other in the form of elements falling from the sky. Nope we get SLEET, RAIN, THUNDER, SNOW. ThunderSnow is what they were calling it on the radio and I like it! And it was mucho frio (cold) this morning at the BOOM Box. It was still above 40° in the box but soooo much colder feeling knowing pellets of ice are falling from the sky. And I’m pretty sure the bars are much heavier when it’s cold right? Can I get someone to confirm that? Thanks!
We went through all the PVC warm ups and all the Bar warmups and then worked on Snatch technique because it was in the MetCon for the day. I did a handful that I felt were right. The rest of them just felt weird. I started off with gloves because the BAR is COLD! But that’s not natural feeling so I threw those off, taped up my thumbs and felt a little more confident that way. Eh I gotta do this no matter what so just deal with it.
MetCon: 12 minute AMRAP of 10 HSPU OR 30 HR Push Ups and 5 Power Snatches (65lbs)
Well, Well, Well, I was not expecting a X3 modification. 30 Push Ups in lieu of Handstand Push Ups. That took up plenty of time as my shoulders fatigue fast. I was looking at the clock but it wasn’t registering in my brain. When I finished my first 30 I just expected to SNATCH that bar but I failed like 3 times before I got it up. So drained. I fought through the best I could but I ended up muscling up the weight up more than anything. I felt that my hands were not cooperating with me and I just might let go of the bar or something. Silly I know. I’m not willing to just let the bar go, but my grip was not confident. I finished 4 rounds and got 1 lonely Push Up in.
Whole30 Days 13 & 14
I finally purchased Sunflower Butter and have been eating it sparingly to use as a fat with my meals. For lunch I just dipped a carrot in it and it was pretty delicious. Got home for dinner and went into prep mode. Cooked up some Steak, Sweet Potato Chips and Asparagus. All the while I did more Cauli-Rice experimenting. Trying a creamy mushroom idea. Cooked it, did not taste it but brought it for lunch so we’ll see! Crossing fingers it’s good cause it’s a good portion of my lunch!
Mood: I woke up without alarm and felt great! But sadly I forced myself back to sleep for 15 minutes! I know I know, I shouldn’t do that but mentally I felt I needed that sleep but my body knows better. Argh. I’ll get better I promise. Except losing the motivation to prep and prepare food constantly I’m still riding the Happy Train. I can’t say this crappy weather doesn’t deter my feeling great, cause it does but I know physically I feel good.
After watching just a little bit of Biggest Loser, I wanted to throw It Starts With Food at every contestant and to the NUTRITIONIST lady as well. I’m almost finished with the book, HOORAY. Again I’m glad they are starting somewhere in regards to finding good health and fitness, but if I took a shot everytime she said eat healthy WHOLE grains, I would of been drunk off my ass. Now I haven’t had alcohol in almost 2 years now, so I wouldn’t really be taking shots but HOLY COW I wanted to punch the lady in the face.
That’s it for today! Have a CHILLY Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow! Be Awesome!
