So my long weekend is over and of course it went by way too fast! Yesterday was nice I got a lot of stuff done around the house! WOD this morning was Power Squat Clean thruster, burpees 21-15-9 for time. 10:15? Something crazy like that. My quads were burning! My L shoulder was feeling it. I'm going to have to try and do some band work on it or something. I've noticed it becoming weaker. X-Tra work today was 50 handstand push ups with assistance from the tires-not comfortable on the wall just yet, 25 KTE.

5am-Chicken, nuts
7:30-Eggs, apple, tons of nuts-per my talk with S this morning
12:15pm-Salad xtra veggies on side, a few grapes, chicken, extra nuts
4pm-Chicken, veggies with hummus, nuts-Feeling tired probably b/c of the rain!
7pm-Taco meat, salad, grapes, nuts, veggies and hummus while cooking

Slept pretty hard last night which was great. Mornings wod kicked my butt-Row 250m, 500m, 750m, 1000m for time all out sprint. 2-3 minute rest between each session. Don't remember my exact times but I know I faded. Wasn't happy with my 1,000m thought I feel out of it for a bit. I know I could've beat my previous time if I stayed focused. Not bad over all though. So I am starting my 30 day regiment on focusing on my weaknesses.
x-tra work: 50 OHS with only 33lbs
200 sit ups on the ball
2-1 minute planks

5am-Chicken, nuts
8:45-Chicken, raspberries, eggplant, 12 nuts
1pm-Salad, eggs, nuts, fruit
6pm-Slice of london broil, slice of turkey at grocery store
7pm-Salad, chicken, 2 eggs, nuts, grapes
9pm-Chicken, veggies, hummus

Recovery Sunday

Last night was a lot of fun hangin out with some great friends. I totally drank myself silly and didn't realize it until the way home. We ended up stopping for a few more drinks and a little 24 hours McDonald's on the way home. Needless to say I didn't get out of bed until 12 today and enjoyed every minute of my much needed sleep. I got up and told Chad, see this is why I don't drink anymore :) My goal for the next few month's is to really focus on my nutrition and be accountable for what I "binge" on. Maybe staying as strict as possible during the week and allowing myself to be zone on the weekends will help me out. I still don't have my diet under control and if I try to be "too" good I end up feeling guilty for the littlest cheat and then it snowballs from there. Let's try that for a few weeks and see how I do.

Game Plan-
Paleo during the week-Mon-Fri every meal
Sat & Sun-Zone/Paleo-Hopefully I can knock this back to just Sunday-but let's see
Crossfit 5 days a week
Set goals each week with coach on improving weaknesses and do allotted reps of each exercise by the end of the week
No 1 day binges
Re-Cap in 30 days-October 29

If I can stick to my goals I should see results in 30 days, no excuses! Now that I've posted it, I've got to hold myself accountable.....

Fight Gone Bad Saturday

Holy shizzzznick!! Fight gone bad today was awesome. We could not have asked for better weather here in Florida. The Temp. was just right and it was cloudy. Perfect conditions to kill yourself for a great cause! I have had anxiety all week about this workout. I knew I set the bar really high for myself on the first go at it and this time I really wanted to beat my score. My goal going in today was a 320 and I ended up with a 330!! So flippin' happy. I felt great the first round and just went balls to the wall, next time I might want to pace myself just a tad b/c it for sure caught up to me. Overall though really proud of myself and my performance. Got to send my love to my girl Sarah who totally killed it today. I am soooo f'in proud of her commitment to her diet and crossfit. She is seeing amazing results from being just so disciplined. She beat her score today by like 60 some points and hit a 318 today which is just nutty. YOU GO GIRL!! Love working out with you!!!
Today all day is a total cheat as I am celebrating so no food posting will occur :) YEAH!!

Friday, September 26, 2008


So it's the day before the big event and I'm nervous, excited and anxious all at the same time. I really want to beat my old score and have a great showing tomorrow. I'm going to try and focus on positive thoughts and do my best tomorrow. Headed to the gym for a walk and stretch with Sarah at 7am. It was kind of nice to just lay in bed for a bit this am.

6:15am-Chicken, nuts
8am-Chicken, egg, peach, strawberries, nuts and grapes
12:00-Eggs, salsa, salad, nuts and a few grapes
3pm-3 nuts
4pm-egg, veggies, ff salad dressing, nuts

Thursday, September 25, 2008


So today I am committed to staying clean! WOD was 3 rounds, deadlifts-21-15-9 at 135lbs, 800M run. Sarah and I killed it. It was such a good push and we both helped each other get through it. Nice! Was really happy with my performance when all was done.

5am-fish, peach, nuts
7:15am-4 eggs, nuts, peach a few strawberries
1pm-Starving but just got the chance to eat-Salmon, salad, nuts, peach, lots of veggies
4:45pm-2 eggs, nuts
5-7-2 diet cokes
7:20pm-Pickin' on fruit, veggies, slice of meat
8:30pm-Salmon, cheese, a few slices of pepperoni, veggies with dip, nuts, peach and a few strawberries

Have a welcome party for me at work tonight. Going to stay clean, going to stay clean. If I keep telling myself that, I think it might just work :) So pretty happy with how the evening turned out. Stayed away from the goodies! Was starving while I was packing up the left overs so I snacked a bit, same with dinner. Good evening over all though!


Ok it's been a little crazy in my life but to recap-Tuesday night-Mental meltdown. Not sure what happened but chad and I went a little nutty with cookies and ice cream after I was already way over blocks for the day. I know it was crazy.Woke up Wednesday and thought I was going to die at the WOD but ended up doing pretty well. I was surprised that my body didn't give out with all of the sugar I took in the night before. Shocking actually. WOD was Rower 500m, 50 WBS 16lbs, 50 hypers, 50 double unders, 50 KBS 16K, row 250M 25 WBS, 25 hypers, 25 double unders, 25 KBS. Breakfast was normal, out to lunch scallops, salad, out for an after noon meeting, side salad with chicken, peach, nuts. Dinner-left over zone lasagna, huge fruit salad with PB. So that's 2 days in a row of major cheats. Not good. Not sure if I am having anxiety attacks for FBG on Saturday or what. But once my mind starts going I just want to eat. YUCK.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008


This morning was a killer. I don't think there was a dry spot on my t-shirt or pair of shorts!! WOD was 25 minutes AMRAP- Sprint, walking lunges, sprint, 25 sit ups, 10 burpees. 8 rounds-It was all good until the burpees starting catching up with me. Thank god Sarah kept keeping me motivated to finish!!

5am-Chicken, peach, nuts
7:15am-Eggs, apple, nuts
12pm-Salad, celery, fish, peach, nuts-Over on gum quota already today!
3pm-Peach, egg, nuts
6:30pm-Starving-Strawberries, peach, salad, salmon, walnuts with grapes.

I'm pretty tired from this mornings workout. Hungry all day I'm sure it's because I was tired. So I picked up some walnuts at costco and it might have been a mistake! They are so good with grapes I couldn't stop eating them. Even after I was full. Maybe 2 or 3 extra blocks of carbs so no snack for me today. YIKES!!

Monday, September 22, 2008


Feeling a little full after the weekend but it's all good. Today is my day off but still up early to go workout. WOD was power cleans 1-1-1-1-1-1. Pretty happy with the amount of weight, the last rep felt good, just need to work on bringing my arms around faster. Wanted to give Sarah a little shout out for her performance today. She stuck with it and reached her goal of 115lbs, so PROUD of her strength and determination.

5am-chicken, peach, nuts
8:30am-chicken, peaches, veggies, nuts
12:30pm-Huge Salad with peppers, broccoli, cucumber, celery, x-tra nuts, 1/2 peach

Sunday, September 21, 2008


Up late, laid in bed until 8:30-9:00am, just didn't want to get up and clean!! Hosted an awesome baby shower with lots of great food. Mostly all zone friendly, benefits of being the hostess. Couldn't even tell you how many blocks I ate but I know it was a lot. Again all good food but no measuring today.

Saturday, September 20, 2008


Up this morning at 7:15am finally got 8 hours of sleep, felt like I still need more but hey not to shabby. Went for a 5k run with Sarah and it felt good. We ran it in about 24 min not sure if it was a true 5 k though. At work today but off Sunday and Monday!

1:30pm-Tofo, salad, nuts, veggies, peach

I was at work today and didn't prep my meals adhead of time. Had to grab and go out of the fridge not the best choices but not bad.

Friday, September 19, 2008


This morning was a 2.5 mile run. Not really happy with my time as it was 21:53? I felt like I was running at a good clip but hell I guess not! Maybe b/c I haven't been running everyday like before or the double WOD yesterday not sure but would like to do better next time for sure!

5am-chicken, peach, nuts
7:30-chicken, 2 peaches, nuts
11am-2 nuts
12:30pm-Applebees-Tilapia, broccoli, mixed veggies-salsa topping, little fruit
4:30-Fruit salad, chicken, nuts-2 block
7:45pm-Rib City Feast for 2-Ribs, chicken, turkey, taste of beans and coldslaw, salad, broccoli
8:15pm-Peach- 6 almonds

So I am counting today as a major cheat. Dinner was excellent, ate too much but stayed in control which is key. I need to have a clean weekend to be where I want to come Monday. Will try and be super strick tomorrow. I need to start measuring portions again, have not been doing that and feel like I"m eating more than normal. It's all good still very happy with my diet.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

WOD-Nancy- 5 rounds of OHS at 65lbs and 400M run. Around 16 min. this AM. Not very happy with my OHS. I couldn't get my shoulders stable after the first round. It took me over 2 min. just to get my last set of 15. Not a happy camper on this one, need to practice holding the weight overhead. I know I am strong enough in the shoulders, I think that's why it was so frustrating. I'll just have to practice!!

Monday, September 15, 2008


So this morning got up at 5am and my body was sore all over. I ate my snack hoping that would help and it didn't. I laid back down only for a few minutes but it ended up being another 3.5 hours of sleep! My body was trying to tell me something and I listened. It's probably for the best as I will be at work LATE LATE tonight. No WOD for me today. Sorry 6am crew for ditching you all. I know you rocked it out without me though.

Sunday, September 7, 2008


Out of the zone last night and today. Too much wine last night but it was a much needed to say the least. Just fixed my meals for the week so we should be good to go. Weekends always go too fast.

Saturday, September 6, 2008


Up early this morning as Chad headed to work. Went for a run with Sarah same track as Monday. However today I was up so early that I ate a one block snack. Not sure if it was the snack or that I ate pretty clean this week but I could for sure tell a difference and felt much better this time around. Enjoyed a much needed massage and detox and ran a ton of errors.

12:15pm-Chicken, 2 peaches, strawberries, nuts
3pm-Chicken, peach, strawberries, little bit of cantaloupe (thanks S!) and nuts- 2 block

Gotta love those Fridays! Feeling really tight and sore in the quads from the thrusters yesterday. Lots of stretching today and this weekend! WOD was- AMRAP 20 min. Snatch 53lbs and 200M run. Killer! 8.5 rounds complete. Focued on flat back- feel like I did pretty well with that.

Thursday, September 4, 2008


So decided that today I would have a much better attitude at work! One day at a time. YEAH!
WOD was a killer, but I've got to say I just love those 1 min. on workouts, I know call me crazy. I can get in that zone and stay mentally strong when it's short and quick. Almost accomplished my goal which was hitting 50 + reps on every round (consistency). The last round I missed it by ONE!!! WOD- 5 rounds- 3 stations-Thrusters 53lbs., box jumps, rower for calories-1 min. rest between. Scored 263!

I am already feeling the thrusters! My quads are for sure stiffening up. YIKES! Better do some stretching.

Wednesday, September 3, 2008


Nice sleep last night, yeah needed it for sure. WOD this morning was a good one! 4 rounds for time-400m Run, 20 perfect push ups, 35 sit-ups, 50 squats. The push ups set me back a bit but I really focused on good form. Going to really try and focus all on form this month and not worry about time. I want to improve all movements and technique.

5am-shrimp, strawberries, nuts
7:15am-3 eggs, peach, strawberries, raspberries, extra nuts

Life is just full of ups sand downs. I can't wait for mine to go back up people!!! It's coming soon I can feel it :)

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

Happy Labor Day!

Feeling great and energized after my run with Sarah. I was totally dying in the humidity and heat but what a great feeling when I was done. We ran for about 40 minutes which is a new personal record for me. Holy crap that was a great run! Thanks Sarah for getting me back on track and getting my head right.

I got caught up on lots of stuff today it was great. My husband has decided to get motivated again and head to the gym! I joined him for a bit of biking, stretching and abs while he pumped the iron. I'm excited for him to get back in the swing. When he works out he tends to eat better, which will ultimately help me stay on track as well.
