{October 15, 2013}   10.15.2013 – Crossfit Week

It is my personal goal to make it to Crossfit every day this week.  Yesterday’s workout involved a lot of 1492 because of Columbus Day, but I’m not really feeling it as much as I thought I would be today.  Alas, maybe I will be feeling it tomorrow… or even tonight after we work on Power Cleans.  

I have decided that I love the lifting aspect of Crossfit the most.  Functional movements are great, and I love when I am able to get down a box jump or remember how to jump rope after years…but being able to throw weight over my head is an accomplishment that I never expected to achieve.  Yesterday I back squatted 100 pounds… that’s a small person.  I am not sure what kind of goals I would like to set for Power Cleans, but I think I am definitely going to try for at least 65# on my heaviest load today.  I have done workouts with 40# on the bar before (if I remember correctly), but there is a major difference in 40# and 65# when you are lifting it up to your shoulders.  I did push press 50# yesterday in my 1492 workout…so maybe starting with 65# wouldn’t be too unheard of.  

We shall see…

Later Days,

{April 13, 2013}   04.13.2013 – Insomnia

Insomnia is such a fail…but it leads to late night blogging.  That’s when all the best blogging occurs, right?

I should be sleeping since I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning, but I’m never much of a sleeper when my mind has a lot to think about. And the past two days have left me with a lot to think about.  I have also revised my workout plan twice since yesterday, which is always fun and probably a bit psychotic.  Basically, I’m keeping Insanity in the mix, but I’m alternating it with Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, and trips to the gym.  I also am going to focus on some yoga practice, if only on the weekends.  I am not at a point in my life where I feel like doing yoga every day, but it definitely is something that I know keeps my muscles healthy and it doesn’t hurt that I love showing off my hella awesome flexibility.

If I like hot yoga, I’ll probably keep it to twice a month for money purposes until I get a better job that allows for a few more frivolous spending choices.  I am hoping that the two yoga classes I am looking to attend will connect me with some fitness types in my area that will in turn open doors to newer fitness options.   I am still self-conscious, and I can’t see myself meeting up with people in hopes of keeping up to their fitness level, but it is something I see in my future.  Hopefully this future will come sooner than later.  I am going to need a lot of distractions from boredom this summer.

I’ve gotten distracted and this post has become pointless.

Later Days,

-Jenni.
