Hey!   I didn't get lost, just busy, we went camping last weekend and my house is in utter chaos and literally, driving me insane. This may be kind of a long post...just a fair warning. 

I did go workout last Wednesday and did Oly Training...although, I really didn't want to.  I am such a sucker.....I stayed....wheezy lungs and all.  We have to push through our comfort zones...its imperative, especially in a weight loss journey.   Being in a comfort zone, isn't always healthy.

Workout for Wednesday, August 15
Run 400
3 Rounds
10 KB Front Squats
10 KB Cleans
10 KB Swings

Double Under Practice
5 Rounds
1 Min on, 30 Sec rest

4 Rounds for time
Run 400
21 Wall Balls
12 Burpees

I wasn't even going to go workout, grabbed my clothes, ran out the door, and forgot the ever so important undergarment that most big chested women need -- Kelly and Meghan know.  *blush* then jumping rope...come on!  O.o  

I didn't write down what I did, I know I started at 21 wall balls and 12 burpees the first round then Kelly heard me weezing from that lovely cold I had.  Brian knocked it down to 15 wall balls and 10 burpees and I think I did 3 rounds.  :(  I can't believe I didn't write down the time.  Rachel was my number one cheerleader!  (Congrats to Rachel and Corey!!!  They got married this past Saturday.)

I wasn't going to go in on Thursday either, as that was the day we were leaving to go up north camping.  I went and met a new crossfitter, Lisa; I hope that she comes back!  She seemed like she liked it....She did awesome, too!

I had to go, as it was 'Grace'.  I did the WOD before and did it with 75 lbs and 8:59 was my time.....check it out.
Workout for Thursday, August 16
Run 400
30 Good Mornings
30 Situps
30 Superman
10 Tuck Jumps

Max Distance Standing Broad Jump

30 Clean & Jerks for time (135/95)

Okay..... the first two jumps were around 2 feet 8-10 inches.  Brian knows that I need visualizations so he said, 'Jen..imagine an animal is chasing get to a cliff and need to jump 3 feet, do you live and make it or miss it?' was my turn after watching the guys jump over 6 feet.....I jog up, okay, talking out loud I am saying, 'running .ooo a cliff..', I come to the line, bam, jumped it 3 feet 2 inches. NICE.   -- See coach Brian is that good, where he knows what I need to get a little further. 

I am proud to say that I shaved some time off my 'Grace' time and went up in weight.  85 lbs in....7:10  WHAT!?  That is 1.49 shaved off!!!  Almost 2 minutes.  THAT is a sign of improvement indeed.  NICE.

okay....Monday's workout, for those fellow 616'ers...we all are in pain from Monday's WOD 'Barbara'  Sweet mother.

Workout for Monday, August 20
Jump rope 2 min
3 Rounds
10 Pass Throughs
10 Kipping Swings
10 Superman
10 Fire Hydrants
20 Steps Walking Lunge

5 Rounds for time
20 Pullups
30 Pushups
40 Situps
50 Squats
Rest 3 Min after each round

I can not hang from a bar, my upper outside arms hurt, Kelly was digging in on it -- probably just rubbing it and it feels a lot better.  Now, for my right one and I know that my shoulders and upper back are laced in knots, just tense.  A lot of personal things going on and seriously....if you know of a masseuse....please refer me...cause I seriously have some upper body tension.  

So, I had 15 lbs weights and did push presses, push ups I started with 15 on the floor then had to move to the wall, but did the 40 situps and 50 squats.  I know that I have a six-pack cause I feel it when I laugh and cough.  It's there...just hidden right now!  Time....47:57.  oh my lands...did you count up all that stuff!?  100 push presses, 75 push ups, 200 sit ups, and 250 squats...oh yes.  I did it all.  Did I want to quit?  UHM, YES.   I was almost in tears, but do you know what?  My brain said something....Jen, you are strong, stop listening to the body.  Do it.  So my 3 minutes rest was up and did my last 2 rounds.  

This is a journey one that I feel like such a baby sometimes.  I want to just curl up in a ball and cry, other days I want to jump for joy -- Like today, tears after working out.  They were talking about food and I had to get out of there!!!  Cried...over banana's.  Giggle, go ahead.  I am now.  PLUS...I started a 21-Day Sugar Detox. More on that later!  Just seriously, I am that weak, where I had to leave.  (I had to get out of there anyways..but still.)

Workout for Wednesday, August 22
Run 400
3 Rounds
10 Fire Hydrants
10 Goblet Squats
10 Situps
10 Leg Swings All Directions

Back Squat

12 Minute AMRAP
12 Deadlifts (185/135)
3 Wall Walks
25 Double Unders

Back squats were good...  although I am having a mental block at 145 lbs.  I just can't seem to get past it, but...I am drained.  

Deadlifts: I did the 135 lbs.  I really didn't want to.  But, Angela, was like 'Deadlift Jen', you gotta.  So I did.  135 lbs.  Wall alive.  I need to stop being a baby and start practicing this stuff.  I am sick of it.  I want to RX a WOD...the only way that I will is by practicing.  *sigh*   I did 4 rounds plus 12 d.l. and 3 wall walks.  50 jump ropes.  

I need to practice some other things....but it's all good.  I am not a super hero.

So, I am doing this 21-day Sugar Detox.  why?  UHM....I love sweets....bad.  I mean, list em off, yeah, I like them.  I do, I love them.  I am very picky on food, but sweets..NOPE...well wait, I do NOT like chocolate cakey things.  ew.  Gross.....Seriously.  I know what my hold up is.  Cori had me document what I was eating.  I seen and I have to tackle that bull by the horns.  Just like with all things that I do not like I need to suck it up and fix things.  I am ruining my workouts, wasting the coaches time simply because I want a bad eating something.  I just can't eat that stuff -- yet.  Not til I am done with the 21-days now..but, if I don't learn to have self-control, when will I?   I mean really....I don't go through 3 drive-thru's, because some of those lifts, it wouldn't be pretty.  I just I don't know how to explain it.  I don't eat a lot.  It's just when and what I am eating.  I am a night snacker.....  so...text me at night, keep my fingers busy! 

Angela, gave me a lovely compliment that I look like I am losing and thinning out.  (thank you!!!) I know that I am...but I want a size 16 now.  Do you know...I was a size 16 when I got pregnant for my oldest 17 years ago.....17 years.  I think, my wedding dress is too big for me now.  *huge grin*  It's just that scale.  I had to get on it yesterday and I really don't want to discuss this anymore.  It's depressing.  My oldest is like mom, you are going to be so buff.  Girl..I do not want to be a beef cake.  I want to be strong, not all weak looking or super huge, like I can beat someone within seconds.   It's kinda freaking me out.  Reason #1 I am doing this sugar detox.  Something has to/will break.  That scale...yep....that scale will be the first thing to break.  Seriously...dang thing.....mental abuse, I swear that is what it is doing.  

Okay, I am babbling now.  Taking two huge bags of clothes to Goodwill this afternoon, my closet is thinning.......  as am I!

Go get your sweat on!!!!   :)  I need to clean this basement, it's just glaring at me, like whatcha gonna do?   Until tomorrow.   Peace, love, and NO SUGAR! -- for me.
