No Plan = FAIL (big time)

plan-400x300

We had a non stop weekend ahead of us and I did zero planning for food. What does that mean? A bunch of non Paleo, Whole30 frowned upon crap eating. And it all caught up with me Sunday evening. And left me high and dry in regards to getting up for the BOOM Box this morning. I went to bed late, didn’t get good sleep and knew I wasn’t going to be able to hang at the box. My brain feels like it’s been replaced with cotton balls.

You have to go into your weekends with a PLAN especially if you aren’t going to be home at all to get some good eats cooked up. I still feel really bleh and congested. Some of that has to do with the craptastic (although not even close to the NE) weather we have been having. But mostly it has to do with poor eating. Please KNOW you can’t wing this stuff. Without planning and preparation you will be in my boat and feeling like POO!

Before I fell apart and crumbled, I managed to get some work done at the BOOM Box on Saturday morning. I have a hard time remembering to take a pic on Saturdays and for that I apologize.

Skill/Strength: Kb snatch mechanics
Oh I just don’t like KB Snatch. I always bruise up my forearms. It always hurts sooo bad. But I did much better this time around. I had better control of the KB and felt a lot stronger technique wise. I didn’t do a lot of weight. I think it was just the 1/2 POOD but I really don’t recall. I just know I worked the skill a little better than I have in the past.

MetCon: 10 minutes to find a 1 rm jerk, Rest 2 min, Max wallballs UB, Rest 2 min, 5 minutes max KB snatch
So I did searches in my past posts and could have sworn I had a 1rm Jerk recorded. I could have sworn it was 100 or 105lbs. But I couldn’t find it anywhere. With that said I worked up to 105lbs 1 RM Jerk in the 10 minute time frame. PR? Who the hell knows. But I figured it’s not too bad seeing as that we haven’t really worked on Jerks in a while. I tried getting 110 with 1 minute left but that didn’t happen.

We then got a 2 minute rest before doing Wall Balls Unbroken :/ I suck at wall balls. I was given the 14lb MURDER ball as it’s been nicknamed. When you think of 14lbs, you don’t think it’s that heavy. But when you have to throw it up and catch it repeatedly it gets heavy. I only did 14. I probably would have had 19 or 20 but I had several NO REPS because the ball didn’t hit the WALL! ARGH! It was horrible.

Time for another rest break, thank goodness! But then it was 5 minutes of MAX KB Snatch! Just go, don’t stop, don’t rest, etc. I felt I started off in a good place but I just got spent towards the end. Only managed to get about 82 reps in. I was shooting for 100 but my hand grip got me. Ah well. Do better next time! Right?

That’s all I got for ya cause I’m was in a big ol lake of FAIL this weekend. It does happen. And now how I deal with it is the real test. I do feel bleh but I had a good breakfast and will have a yummo lunch. Marching onward. Have a SUPER Monday and be awesome!

  1. Planning truly is SO important! I did good this week and prepped a ton of stuff on Sunday (probably too much 😦 ) but it’s nice to be able to still have options for dinner in the week, but half the stuff prepped (zucchini sliced, cauliflower riced, chicken deboned, bone broth jarred.
    Great job on the jerk! This is my new most favorite lift!! I hit 90lbs this week which felt AWESOME! And you’re doing over 100! Amazing job! 🙂

    • Without planning I can not function! Making bone broth is my new favorite thing to do, well not to do, but I like having it around. To add flavor to veggies, make soup, etc. It’s wonderful! I also put some in a silicone muffin thingy so I have mini broth pops when I don’t need a lot.

      And good job to you as well. I know I could jerk more. I’ve push pressed 105lbs. So I sure as hell should be able to Push Jerk more but I’ve been a big baby lately at the box. Ah well. I’m an emotional wreck 99% of the time.
