Stretch to cool down….or should I say die on the gym floor!!! But I love kicking my own ass!! My hip starting giving me issues….but I was not about to give in to it…MIND over MATTER! It was not HURT PAIN, it was like HELLO STOP USING ME AND CRAWL INTO BED OR I AM GONNA GO NUMB!!!

Can’t wait to hit it again tomorrow…I love CrossFit…what a great rehab for me….this should be a part of everyones physical therapy!!!

So I’m thinking…

I really think I should start a recipe book for picky PALEO/ZONE eaters!!!  I could probably make some money off of it….because I am starting to become very creative in my limited choices and yet my meals are so darn yummy!! Even so delicious that my kid is finishing them before I do!!

So on to what this is really about…my WODs!! Today was great…I was so happy that I got to push myself alongside LL!!

Strength Work ~
1×20 Squat Clean @ 65 (started out at there, but at the last 5 I had to drop the weight to 55. I hate that I can’t jump!)
1×20 Bench Press @ 90 (8 weeks ago I started this at 75, I am stoked that I jumped this amount…lovin’ it!)

My upper body definitely isn’t my problem…it’s my lifts that include my hip…where I have to jump and throw my hip into it or use my low back (i.e, dead lift). But my numbers are increasing and all I can say to that is…my muscles are getting stronger and are building….slowly but surely. And I will take that!!

WOD ~ repeat from 5/6/10 (old time 9:06)
10 Rds For Time:7:04
3 Snatch Pulls 90% 1RM
6 Ring Dips (sub Reg Dips-don’t have rings)
9 KTE (sub Inverted sit-ups-no area to do this)
(Exactly what I did last time)

2 x 100 single jump ropes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now to just ramble…cuz I haven’t mentioned it…but OMG!! The Games…my laptop was attached to my hip this past weekend!!! I was addicted…it was like I was on crack!!! I loved every minute of it. It  made me realize how far away I am from 2011 competition, but that’s ok…I am completely in awe of those athletes. And two I have come to just start chatting with on Facebook briefly. But all blew me away!! The ONE thing I love most about CrossFit is that it makes YOU challenge YOU!! You witnessed it FIRSTHAND in the Finals, yes they were there to see who was the fittest in the world….but when they were done with their WOD, they didn’t walk away…they encouraged,supported, cheered on, pushed, yelled at to keep going, hugged, fist pumped…the same people they were just battling against. You would never see that in other sports!! I love being a part of this community and I plan on it staying a part of my life until the day I die! 🙂

I love it when….

I absolutely love it when friends who have heard me talk about CrossFit and me kicking my own ass…come and do it with me!! One of dearest friends, Leigh and her friend Jamie, happened to miss their spinning class this morning. So I offered them to come do my WOD with me and Dawn. Leigh was up for the challenge! We grabbed out Kettle bells and headed towards the back room!

Here was the Rx WOD:
For Time : 19:00
50-40-30-20-10
Single Rope Jumps
KBS @ 25 (for me)
Sit-ups
Pushups

They rocked it…no complaining…they pushed them out…sweat was pouring …grunts were being made. And even a statement of “this is worse than spinning class”…hell yeah it is!! I was so proud of them…they did amazing. Leigh even mention I became a different person…I was no joke when the clock started…lol!!

It was great!!! I absolutely LOVE to motivate people and encourage them…to take them past there breaking point. After the WOD, Dawn did some strength work of Push Press, Shoulder Press and Bench Press…she needs upper body strength training…so we are focusing on that. She did good 5×5’s. I am glad I didn’t do any since I came home and see CF TOTAL 2 was posted for today!!! UGH!!! I will stay focused and postive just like I did for CF TOTAL 1!!!

CF TOTAL 1 and a little about weight!!

OMG!!! I can’t flipping believe it….I am so excited!!! So excited I had to call Lauren between my Dead Lift 2nd and 3rd attempt to see what I should go for since I already lifted my PR on my 2nd attempt!!

You see this is why!! If you haven’t been keeping up with my blog…I have been COMPLETELY out of commission for 37 days!! DOING NOTHING…and when I say nothing…I mean just the daily routine of life and nothing else. Which SUCKED!!! I was put on strict orders my my doctor during the procedures I was getting done to PLEASE NOT DO CROSSFIT OR ANYTHING ELSE…to just do daily routine things and when ever possible relax in bed…do you know how much that drove me crazy!!?? AAGGHHH!!! Can you hear me screaming through the computer!!

So here I am only back a week…I have only done 2 Strength Trainings before Kevin decides to put up the CF Total 1, the last time we did it was May 18, 2010…so 2 months ago! So I go to the gym and I am actually looking forward to it…I am being positive…if I hit my old PRs…I will be happy! How can I not after the hell I have just been thru with my hip and back…and here I have to do lifts that are ALL HIP AND BACK!!

So here it goes my CF 1 Total ~ Oh by the way did I mention ~

 I PR’D ALL MY LIFTS ! YES EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!!!

Deadlift 125 ~ 145 ~ 175
Back Squat  135 ~ 145 ~ 175
Shoulder Press 80 ~ 95 ~ 105
TOTAL = 455
Old Total = 390…up 65!!

Hell yeah!!!

Oh yeah and then I ended with a 5k Bike Time:18:49, I also felt good enough so I just continued biking…not for time. This si the first time my legs weren’t going numb so I just pedaled until they did! I made it 10.4 miles!!! My left leg was completely numb and my right the last three toes were dead and it traveled up the outside of my leg…but oh well, that is the LONGEST I have biked since the accident NON STOP! I know it wasn’t on my TREK and it was on a recumbent bike, but who cares…that is a HUGE MILESTONE for me!!!

Yesterday, I did a mini WOD at home cuz I wasn’t feeling to great…
100 sit ups
200 squats
50 burpees
Time: 14:19

Now on to another subject totally off topic…but something I have dealt with over the 37 days that I was laid up and actually a topic I have dealt with MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!
WEIGHT!!
I am so sick and tired of skinny ass chicks or people who think they are healthy and know what the f&(# they are talking about, trash talking people who are overweight. Do I think there are people who lack desire to change, will power, who want the “easy” way out…yes I do. But coming from someone who use to be 275 pounds (yes I was THAT big)! But also someone who before that was athletic, who knew how to take care of herself, but circumstances of life happened. Don’t pass judgement on people when you never walked a day in there shoes. Instead of belittling them, why not sit down and listen to their story! Take a journey with them…you might actually LEARN something from them!! Do I believe that some people are just plain couch potatoes…yep…but I also believe not everyone is born to have that strong will power in them, or to be able to motivate themselves or encourage themselves. How do you know that those people were not let down by the same type of people you are…why in the world would they want ANYTHING to do with you…even if it has to do with being healthy…to them YOU ARE A BITCH, SNOB, JUDGEMENTAL, SELF ABSORD ASS!!! Hell~I wouldn’t want your help or want to be like you…if your aren’t “healthy” on the inside…I really could careless what you look like on the outside!!

When my light bulb finally went off in 2005..I literally was in so much pain trying to lose my weight. I know I did it to myself, so I didn’t care about the pain I had to go through to get it off…I was going to do it, FOR ME!!! And I did!! I didn’t do it to find a guy, I didn’t do it for my butt to look good in jeans, I didn’t go get plastic surgery to fix shit…I am  natural!! I happy with what God has given me…I will work with what I have and make it stronger and healthier to be around for my daughter and to live a life that I want to live….to fulfill MY DREAMS AND GOALS!!!

I guess some people don’t understand because they have never looked death in the face like I have four times, they have never had to overcome huge obstacles without any help, just all on there own…that is when you grow and learn that life is a blessing…every breath you breathe is precious and it is not guaranteed….so don’t judge someone for their outside…because when you do…your inside shines through and it’s not so pretty!!
