New Year's Eve

Wanted to get up this morning and go for a walk or something but my morning did not end up the way I thought. I didn't get out of bed until 9:30 a.m. b/c I have to work super late tonight with my NYE party at work. My phone was ringing off the hook which is a good thing about our condo so I was running around trying to get ready super fast and show the condo to 2 people. Keep your fingures crossed we might have a renter! Anyhow so no exercise today for me again. Must do something tomorrow!

B-fast-Omelet with peppers, salsa, veggies with hummus and some nuts
Lunch-Salad-lots of veggies, nuts, 1/2 apple, 1/2 zone bar
hungry or maybe stressed about tonight-1/2 zone bar a few nuts

Tuesday-Back in the saddle!

So I didn't end up working out anymore over vacation and my diet went to crap the 2nd leg of the trip. Got on the scale this am which I probably shouldn't of, but I did. And yes I gained a few extra pounds! But that's ok I am looking for a fresh start in 2009 and to get on track! Today was my first day back and boy could I tell! WOD was Run 400m, row 400m, 30 box jumps, 30 Pull ups, 30 Thursters at 65lbs, row 500m, 30 burpees with tire, 30 SDLHP, run 400m. It was hard but I'm glad I got up and went to class. It was good to see the 6am crew with a few additions. Great work everyone.

5:30am-a few nuts
7:45am-Eggs, Apple, nuts
Rest of the day went like this..:
Lunch Salad, orange, eggs, nuts
Salad, nuts, egg
Apple and 1/2 with pb, Salad, nuts, chicken

Did well but became weak when I got home from work. Ended up eating too much pb and apple slices. Overall good day though. Hoping I feel better by the end of the week!

Merry Christmas!

Yeah it's here! Just wanted to hop on for a second and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I haven't been too bad with the diet not perfect either but it's all good. No more workouts thus far hoping to get one more in before I head back to FL. I've been able to catch up on some much needed sleep and family time. I just love being home for Christmas, couldn't imagine it any other way. Love you guys! See you back in FL soon!!

Hit the gym this am for a few power cleans. Not very happy with the weight but that's ok. Did a bunch of warm up sets. 95, 105,115,125 back down to 95 for 2 sets of 5. Only cleared 125. Not sure if it was the mirror. Kind of funny watching myself do the lifts instead of feeling it. I was trying to concentrate on not jumping too soon and actaully watching the bar go up my legs. Anyway finished with a 2 mile run on the treadmill. Off to chad's house so I won't be bloggin for a bit. Hope everyone had fun last night at the x-mas party!!

9:30am-Eggs, eggplant, apple, nuts and some salsa

Got up and went to the local gym it was crowed!! Here's my crazy WOD- 3500m on the rower, 15 of biking (if that's what you want to call it, more like just zoning out), then came the fun.....KBS and push ups- 21-18-15-12-9-6-3. Fun fun. The largest KB they had was a 45lb it was kind of nice to use that weight again! We are suppose to get 8-10 inches of snow today. Holy Crap people that's a lot of snow. Chad went home to go help plow so he'll be working all day and night i'm sure. I'm at my parents for one more night then off to chad's. I usually do good while I'm at my parents house b/c they try and help me eat good. His house is another story. I'll be packin' some goodies to take with me:)

Egg whites, salsa, eggplant, fruit, nuts
Salmon, Salad, nuts, fruit
nuts, Zoned Lazana Yummy! My parents enjoyed it too!
Cheese stick, apple, pb
a few more nuts!


Caught the 5am class yesterday and S came to join me. She of course killed the WOD. The Double unders gave me a lot of trouble. What the heck?? Need to practice. Anyhow wod was 3 min row for calories...Angie- 50-40-30-20-10 DU and sit ups. After I took off the calories I was around 11 or 12 min.

Ate a solid b-fast before I hopped on the plane- eggs, fruit, nuts
Apple, nuts, cheese stick, 1/2 zone bar-gave the other 1/2 to chaddy-Thanks S you saved me!!
Salad, tuna, nuts, fruit
Ck,eggplant, salad, little broccoli, nuts
Veggies, nuts, ck

So did pretty well. We went to my grandma's for her birthday of course there was cake. They gave me a piece b/c they are Italian and are always trying to feed you. I took it and played with it but decided not to eat it :) Drank 2 cups of coffee instead. I did however go a little overboard on the nuts. My parents are really into those yummy salted mixed nuts that I can not put away. So my fat intake for the day was pretty darn high!

Up at 5am in such a good mood. Could it be b/c it's my last day of work before I leave for 10 days or just the fact that I'm going home??? I think it's the combination!! So excited to hit upstate NY for a change of weather and family. I'm going to freeze b/c I always do but I love to see snow at Christmas. Talked to my dad on the way into work and they are suppose to get 2 inches tonight!! WOD was 60 air squats, 400m run, 25 push press--3 rounds for time. 80 lbs on the push press about killed me! It was short and sweet. Shout out to S for bumpin up the weight and doing great!

5am-Salmon, nuts
7:30am-Salmon, blackberries, a few left over veggies, nuts
12:30pm-So we had an employee luncheon...They ordered appetizers--I ate 2 shrimp (jumbo) Cantaloupe with brochette, mozzarella with tomato and pesto, Chicken salad which I took most of it home. Wasn't exactly what I was going for but I was happy with my choices--No dessert :)

Long Tuesday

Yesterday was a long day for me. I ended up getting home at 10pm from work totally exhusted! I did well staying in the zone all day but when I got home ate 1/2 apple with pb, veggies and hummus, cheese and a few nuts. Don't think I needed the extra snacks but I had to stay up and finish some last minute things around the house before I could go to bed!

Met Con monday. Run 800m, row 800m for time 3 rounds rest 4 minutes between rounds. 6:35, 6:47, 6:47 really pumped about my 3 times being so close. It was a tough WOD.

12:30pm-Boca burger, stir Fry a few shrimp, nuts
3:30pm-Mixed veggies, hummus, chicken, nuts

Worked on Saturday and did well all day unti around 10pm. Ended up having a glass of wine at the restaurant at work and then caught up with Chad at a house party. Lots of vodka and about 5 hours later we hit denny's for some sober me up food. Needless to say it wasn't good and I ate wayyy too much. Sunday did well getting back in the zone although I ate little bits of Chad's Chinese food. Overall good day.

So glad it 's Friday. Just have two more days of work until rest...yeah! WOD was 25 DL, 400 M run, 50 pull ups, 50 KBS, 50 Burpees, 400m Run, 25 DL. Man I was doing so well with my pull ups until around 48 or 49 when my palm busted open with blood everywhere! I thought I was going to lose my cookies for a minute. The blisters are pretty nasty I know I need to figure something out. But my pull ups are soooo much better without tape.

Zone all day-
Dinner-Out to outback for a few cocktails, salad, streak, veggies and mushrooms. Didn't do too bad.

I can tell I've been doing well with my diet the last few days, I'm starting to feel much better.

So I haven't been checking the WOD's lately and I need to! It was a weight lifting day and I totally didn't bring my new shoes! Push Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. Got up to 125lbs this morning. I wasn't happy with my lifts today. I don't have the correct form down and it's keeping me from going up in weight. I've got to work on opening up my hips and getting under the bar.

5am-Fish, nuts
7:30am-Salmon, Orange, Nuts-Big piece of Salmon I didn't measure this morning!
Stayed in the zone today did well but need to cut back on the gum chewing.

WOD was MG this am. Row 500m, 50 push ups, 50 rack rows, run 400m, 50 GHD sit ups, 50 box jumps at 24, row 500. I thought my push ups were quality but the rack rows kicked my butt. Overall happy with the workout. Today was a fun day for me out on a fishing trip with my residents. Gosh do I miss being out on the water, I forgot how relaxing it is. Caught lots of little fish today nothing to write home about, but what a great day of work!

5am-Chicken, nuts
7:30am-Salmon, raspberries, blackberries, nuts
12:30pm-Chicken, Salad, nuts, Celery, few slices of orange
4pm-Mixed veggies, hummus, chicken, x-tra nuts
6pm-Fresh fish :), soup, salad, nuts


So I haven't been good about getting on and bloggin' b/c I've been working so freakin' much. I was totally tired this weekend and ended up eating like crap Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I worked all weekend and haven't had a full day off since Thanksgiving weekend. I should know better that when I'm tired and cranky I don't eat well, but some things are just so hard to break. Old habits are so easy to fall back into! When I'm tired I crave everything sugar and carb. When I don't get my rest and stress sky rockets; everything I've been working so hard to change goes out the window. Everyone struggles with things in life and mine for sure is my diet :(

Got home late last night from work and thought I would be able to sleep for days. Too bad that's not what happened. I tossed and turned up at 3:00 and every 1/2 hour, ended up going to the gym with Chad this am. Didn't push myself that's for sure, kind of just went through the motions. Lifted bench press, tri-ceps and some shoulder work. Ended with 5 minutes on the rower. Not sure I really even broke a sweat but glad I did something!

6:30am-Made breakfast for Chad and I-How nice!
Omelet, blackberries raspberries, nuts, a few veggies
10am-Hungry-Chicken, nuts a few veggies

Woke up and didn't want to get up. But decided I needed to! Long day ahead of me as I will be at work until very late. Didn't grab a snack before WOD which I should've. Was feeling full from last night. WOD was heavy deadlifts. New PR today at 285, very excited. I am starting to second guess my abilities as the weight is going up and up. The numbers are a little intimidating for me. I need to block it out and just focus on the lift. But all went well and I pulled the weight I set out to get today. NICE! Shout out to Sarah for breaking her PR as well...225 nice girl!

7:30am-B-fast at home for once! Egg beater omelet, veggies, black berries and raspberries, nuts
12:30pm-Salad, chicken, raspberries, some extra veggies

Wednesday, December 3, 2008


I think coach is trying to kill me this week with all of the triples! WOD was 750m row, 70 sit ups, 60 WBS at 20lbs, 50 jumping pull ups, 40 kbs at 24k, 30 burpees. I didn't feel as though I had the drive this morning that I usually do. Normally I can push myself through it and today I found myself breaking more than normal. I'm probably just overly tired and not up to my normal craziness. I tried to run a mile after class but ended up walking part of it. I could feel my calf coming on, not sure if the weather has something to do with it. But I listened and ended up walking most of the way back.

5am-chicken, nuts
7:30-eggs, mixed fruit, nuts
12:45-Salad, veggies, mixed fruit, nuts
Zone snack
Dinner-Salmon, veggies, hummus, salad
2 apples with PB-

I know I was tired and weak. I could not satisfy my hunger and I know it's b/c I am tired and cranky. I ended up having wayyyy tooo much pb even after the apples were eatin'!

Tuesday, December 2, 2008


Still really tired and trying to catch up on much needed sleep. WOD was AMRAP 20 minutes starting with 10 squats, 200m run, 10 push ups--up by 10 each round on the BW movements. I completed 4 rounds and got to 29 push ups before time expired. Not too bad....push ups still a weakness. Ended with 25 pull ups, 1 mile run and 200 sit ups.

5am-Chicken, nuts
7:30am-eggs, apple, nuts
12:30pm-Huge salad, eggplant, raspberries, nuts


Up to see another Triple workout! 3 rounds 1.5 minutes each station, 1.5 min. break between stations. Rower for calories, box jumps, clean into a thruster at 85lbs. Scored a 159 which was great. I actaully did the best on the rower which was a surprise since I started with that. I remember feeling aweful after the why did I do this to my body!!!

Entire day was zone friendly--Can't remember what all I ate but it was good.


So I was doing really good saying no and being strong for the holiday weekend...until Saturday and Sunday came along. It's just so easy to get sucked back into old habits I hate it!! I tend to do this too...when there is a change in the schedule I am good for the first few days and then fall into old ways. Drank, ate a lot, birthday cake, ice cream you name it and felt like poop when the weekend was over. But the good news is Monday is a new day and the key is to get back on the wagon. So I will!
