Days 81, 82, 83, 84 and (paleo challenge 9, 10, 11, and 12)

The workout on Friday kicked my started with a 500m rowing sprint.  I have been rowing after my WODS as much as possible for two reasons:
1. Amber wants me to get in as much cardio as possible.  This totally makes sense to me - I have the most weight to lose out of anyone I have seen at Geaux Crossfit...I need to burn off calories as often as possible.
I am wiped out
2. I don't want to say I am competitive (although most people will know me will say I am) but at the gym they have the best time for different WODs posted on dry erase boards hanging up on the walls.  I think that the 500m row is the one that I have the best shot to get in the top 5.....soo I am much as possible.  Because I want my name on a board. It is crazy what motivates us!

Dripping with Sweat
As always, Amber was able to modify the workout to fit my level.  I was wiped out afterwards.  I have never sweat as much as I do by the time I am done with the WOD.  My hair is literally dripping wet.  I didn't know I was physically possible to workout that hard!!  It is...and sometimes it only takes 20 minutes.

Today was a tough day diet wise and it just reminds me how important it is to be prepared.  I didn't have much breakfast because the kids and Jason wanted pancakes.  I had a little bit of bacon and an egg.  Then my mum and Abby and I spent the day shopping, getting ready for the France family road trip to Nashville that will happen one week from Thursday.

By 1pm I was grumpy (my mum will attest to that) and hungry.  I got a new purse and hadn't switched everything over yet so I didn't have any paleo snacks like almond butter.  My brain wasn't mum decided to bring chinese home for her and my dad and I got some for Jason too. I ordered as paleo as I could for me...pork chow mein...I ate a couple bites but couldn't  choke down much more.  It just didn't taste good to me...the couple of bites did the trick though - I ended up with a headache and awful stomach cramps....totally not worth it.

Paleo Breakfast: boiled eggs & cucumbers
I got home and cooked twice the amount of paleo dishes I need for the week.  The extras i put in the freezer to bring with me on the road trip.  We are going to Nashville for my brother in law's wedding and I am really worried about the  food issues.  Luckily we are staying in a hotel room that has a microwave and fridge.... I am determined to make our 9+ hour drive with my four year and two year old as pleasant and healthy as possible...I always use road trips as an excuse to eat junk food...I am determined to break that habit.

Sooo..Wednesday is Day 15 and Weigh in/Measurements #1!  I am so excited and nervous and ready for it to happen!!!

Gotta be healthy for the kids!!

  1. Awesome work! It pays off. Exercise has helped keep me energized and feeling mentally healthy, too. I am so happy you are doing this. Do it for YOU too! It's like the airplane oxygen mask. You need to give yourself air first, or you're no good to anyone else. XXOO
