Workout Wednesday

Workout Wednesday – July 2013

This is a VERY short update mostly pictures. Life’s getting complicated and well I don’t want to talk about it so you get pretty pictures and not a lot to read. I’ve described what the photos are in each photo. I’m not entering my fifth month of CrossFit and I’m still enjoying it and the challenges that it brings. Over the last week and a half I’ve almost walked a marathon distance (as in I went out specifically to walk, so not counting just walking to and from places). I’m going to try to stick with that sort of walking every week to support what I’m doing at CrossFit. In addition I finally splurged and bought the Map My Fitness App (it was on sale for $0.99) so hopefully that’ll keep me going. I’m not sure there was much benefit to it as they still have an ‘MVP feature’ you have to pay for a subscription for and I’m not doing that.

On top of the exercising I’ve been relatively good about eating healthier and have stuck with salads for at least one meal a day four days a week! Which if you know me know that’s something shocking. I still don’t think they’re the best things ever, but I’m getting used to them and I’ve spaced out my other food throughout the day so I’m not hungry all the time anymore.

Hopefully I’ll start to see different types of improvement with all this green stuff I’m eating 🙂 (Although, honestly, it’s not about the weight or inches lost. For me it’s about getting healthier and reaching my own personal goals.)

  1. Congratulations on keeping up with the fitness! I’ve started going to the gym a few days a week, and I’m actually enjoying it for the first time in my life. Not anything near crossfit, but it’s something.

    1. Thanks and I’ve realized that it really does help to clear the mind. I used to swim for that because I enjoyed the quiet of the swimming, that muffled space where you can hear other people but you can tune them out.

    1. Some of the work outs are a lot of repetitions. I’ve not done one that had more than 50 reps of one thing in one go. But there are all sorts of scaling options.
