Yup that’s right folks. I came at you with a fresh blog post in January saying I’m back, I’m here, I’m present… and then poof, I lost my blogging voice. I lost my mojo. While I can’t say with certainty that I’m BACK, I’m at least pressing on and trying to get back to sharing, motivating and whatever else someone may get from reading my ramblings.
While my Whole30 crashed and burned back in January, please know I have not given up completely. I am still eating clean, but I’m not at a good percentage. Maybe 60/40. I’m hitting up CrossFit at least 3 times a week for the most part but it’s varied depending on the schedule of the week. So it could be two days one week and then five the next week. With three teens, it can get hectic!
For those of you that don’t know me on the Facebook, I check-in religiously when I hit up CrossFit Boom. Yes, I’m aware that it can be super annoying. But hey, it’s only once a day. A while back, I had one friend notice I stopped my checking in so much – mostly because I thought it was too much, but she messaged me saying my posts kept her motivated. And I thought to myself, well that’s why I’ve been doing it. And if just that one person is motivated then the check-ins will resume. So even if I’m not perfect right now at least I’m motivating someone. I’m no model of stellar fitness but I’ve managed to motivate a coworker to clean up her eating habits and with her success, I’m re-motivated myself.
Which brings me back to my blog! Ah yes. Getting back to it all. I’m still trying to figure out my new voice in the chaos of my life. Looking back I realized I became stale and boring in my posts. It was in sync with me getting out of control with eating, booze and lack of commitment at the box. So it makes sense. I lost the passion.
I’m struggling to get it back, so bare with me. I’ve been successful at the box. I’m making gains. And it feels good. Now I just need to button up the eating by being prepared for all moments of the days, not just some… especially on baseball weekends with the kids.
Mobility (much needed): Hamstrings, Hips, Shoulders, Back
EMOM 6 Ring Dips (modified: push-ups) and 9 Power Cleans (115lbs/75lbs)
So in my fluffier state, push-ups aren’t my forte. Plus my shoulders are shot so knee “girl” push-ups it is for me. I did do 2 regular push-ups to start off with if that counts for anything! For me, a 75 lb clean is fairly easy. But when you pair it with push-ups and you only have ONE minute to get the 15 reps in before you have to start over, then it’s not so easy. I struggled with this workout. Maybe cause I was running on 4 hours of sleep. Or maybe I didn’t have enough food in me for the day. Regardless. I was ready to quit after the second minute. I held on a little longer and almost made to through 5 minutes but I only completed a full 4 rounds.
No picture of the board for the WOD. But I will get pack to picture taking and keeping track.
Thanks for stopping by if you’re new and thanks for sticking with me if you’re an old follower 🙂
