|Me in "Beast" Mode|
I don't know why, but the pity party I was feeling for myself on Wednesday turned into motivation to push myself harder by Friday. After Friday's WOD, my fabulous trainer Amber told me I was a beast at Geaux Crossfit....haha...I really do not want to admit this but Amber has pushed me to a point where I am actually enjoying to run. Last week I committed to running on the days I don't do Crossfit - Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday....but I have also been getting up early and running the mile BEFORE the WOD too...I cannot believe it - I ran over 6 miles last week! I never thought I could do it! When I started Crossfit, I couldn't even run one lap around the building (200 meters) but today I realized that I didn't even start to have any shortness of breath until about the 1/2 mile point....I am so curious to see how this extra cardio will affect my weight loss. I have decided to put off my weigh in for an extra week.
|bye bye sushi....hello sashimi!|
My body is exhausted - my problems sleeping are definitely problems no more. I actually think that I have worn out my sneakers...in about 5 months! Usually my sneakers last 5 years..haha
Sooo...it's time for me to start making some goals...yes, I want to lose 100 pounds by January. But I also want to run a 5k...I want to be able to RX some WODs. I want to be able to do a pull up. And a box jump. And a double under...and a f-ing squat....
