Never have I loved a caption so much! I love loading up the bar and lifting heavy. It’s always nice when the person working out near you says “You are getting really strong”. I’m not close to where I want to be, but the technique that I am learning at CrossFit Bluegrass is off the charts. So excited to lift heavy! Pics coming soon of before and after shots… 19 days to go!

New challenge

Hubby and I started a challenge today, and it all started good. However, as a nurse, I take care of everyone else but do not take care of myself. Now more than ever with the changes in healthcare, I am lucky to even get a lunch break. Therefore, today did not go well. With our challenge, if we cheat there is a 50 burpee penalty to be tallied at the end. Uh yeah, not gonna do burpees. With that said, at the end of my shift tonight I was starving. If there were a cow on the side of the road, I probably could have eaten it all! Instead an apple had to suffice. It was already very late and I did not want much on my stomach, not a good night after that… I was grumpy as all get out!
Learned a valuable lesson, EAT… By all means EAT!!’

The past two weeks, I’ve kept in the game. Two rest days… As planned. Feels good. Finally realizing, I’m not much of a blogger.

I have a new goal. Working toward that goal really sucks right now. Got through to 6 thrusters on the set of 15 making a score of 66. Plan to retest in 3 months. Gotta keep going. My daughter says it takes endurance. She defined endurance as “sticking with what you started even when it gets tough”!

Action shot!!! Feeling so good! I am making some smart decisions when it comes to eating! I just have to keep it up! If I can keep this up, I will for sure notice some differences! 
Hubby and I visited CF Ignis this weekend and had a blast! Great to be welcomed by the CrossFit family. Might just start visiting a new box once a month! It’s nice and fun to meet other crossfitters with the same passion!
Here’s to a fresh start and a new week! Eat clean. Train mean.

Day 12

Today went great until supper, again! I am seeing a trend! So, I went for a run when I got home. I feel so much better having done that. However my foot hurts now! Why can I not run and just feel fine? Oh the days of my 20’s are long over!

Day 10… Started great, then I got to work. Didn’t eat all day and finished with fast food. Not a good day!
Today I did great!!! After breakfast, I came home and went to CrossFit… It was a great WOD, Heavy Theusters, DUs, and V-ups! Somehow, I missed the small part that said “shuttle sprints”!

However, I feel great! Let’a see what Day 12 holds!!!

I “LOVE” how I feel!!

I will do a quick catcher upper on the past couple days!

-Day 5, Very strong at work. Clean eating all day, found that nasty sugar headache but it reminds me I’m doing something right.

-Day 6, It started to get rainy so we did sprints inside and lemme just say, they ere nasty. I don’t know how many meters there were, but I felt so accomplished afterwards! Good day! Ended with ice cream, so headache was back, boooooo!

-Day 7, I don’t feel like I made the best food choices on this day, but instead of just letting it all go I came home and ran! Huge accomplishment!

-Day 8, Got back on track! I’m finding that if I do good for breakfast, you can pretty much guarantee the rest of the day is good! However, I am starting to get my hunger streak back! I am hungry ALL the time! (Including right now) UGH!

-Day 9, Today was great! I am making good food choices but now I need to get enough food in! 14.3 is in the books and with that extra lil run, I can tell my engine did a lot better tonight!
Here’s to tomorrow and hopefully getting called off!
