Box Abuse

Most epic fail of my CrossFit career:  I jumped INTO the box last night instead of on TOP of it…twice.  It was ugly.  

I’ve “missed” the box a couple of times before, and I always end up being fine, luckily.  But last night I was just not having it, I guess.  I hit the box once, and the lady next to me asked if I was alright, and my response was, “Yeah, I do this all the time, no big deal.”  Well then two jumps later…SMACK right into the box, again! Boo!  Here’s my shin, looking gross:


Despite the box incident, the WODs the past two days have been great:

Monday 12.3 CrossFit Open WOD

18 Minute AMRAP

  • 15 box jumps @ 20″
  • 12 push press RX 75lbs (65)
  • 9 toes to bar

I made it with 4 complete rounds +32 reps 

I went to the 5:30pm class last night, and there were like 30 people there.  PACKED!  

Tuesday  Back squats and mini AMRAPs

For our strength we worked up to our one rep max for high bar back squats, and then did 4 sets of 3 at 75%.  I got up to 135lbs on my 1RM- 10 pounds heavier than the last time we did back squats.  #progress

Then for the WOD it was….

5 minute AMRAP

  • 5 squat cleans RX- 85lbs (65lbs)
  • 7 burpees over the bar

rest 3 minutes

5 minute AMRAP

  • 5 dead lifts 85lbs
  • 7 burpees over the bar

Total reps = 85 for this girl.  

Paleoooooo meals for this week:

  • breakfast:  egg cupcakes via an “Everyday Paleo” cookbook recipe
  • lunch: grilled chicken and mixed vegetables (broccoli,cauliflower, and carrots)
  • dinner: paleo tacos.  ground beef + onions with lots of seasonings, atop a bed of butter lettuce with salsa and avocado chunks.  YUM! 

I would hyper link to the recipes, but I haven’t figured out how to do that yet, I apologize for my lack of being word press savy.  

Also, I’m about to finish up day four of our WHOLE LIFE CHALLENGE.  It’s going really well so far.  I’ve managed to tap into this amazing will power that I didn’t know I had and have warded off many temptations for sweet treats and salty snacks.  My only qualms thus far are:

  • I miss drinking my tart cherry juice before bedtime, it really helps me sleep better
  • Drinking all of this water (0.5oz for every pound of body weight) is really causing a lot of extra trips to the ladies room, which wouldn’t be so bad, but I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night–no thanks. 
  • Fish oil isn’t really my cup of tea.  Although, I will say the “fish burps” have sort of dropped off since the first day, so maybe I’m getting used to it. 

That’s all I have for now.  I’ll check in later this week!
