FGB Recovery, a strict pullup, and vegetables

(1) 5 rounds
15 Weighted situps - 15#
15 pushups
30 double unders

(2) weighted chins 5x1

So it was FGB recovery day--time to flush the lactic acid build up. We were supposed to do the five rounds for time. I just plain did them. situps were a cinch, pushups are getting easier, and double unders....well, there was so snap so I mostly did singles. no need to kill the calves just days before the Army 10 miler.

The second WOD is always an 'impossible', sleep in kind of day. But, today, I tried the chin up. SUCCESS. SUCCESS! I did an strict chin up! I did not add weight, but I did it, chin totally over the bar. I will admit I started my pulls without locked out elbows, but I'm certain that I can work on that. Grace and Ellen said there is a trick to flexing your lats, pulling up straight to bar vs. away from the bar, etc... Amazing what two weeks off will do for you.

Speaking of two weeks off...
I completely fell off the zone/paleo wagon. Ok, not completely, but certainly far, from 70/30 or 80/20 I would like it be. And, I've noticed that certain clothes aren't fitting like they once did and the stomach certainly is not as svelte. I don't even want to step on the scale. Snacks at work--two skinny 20 yrs old, size 4 coworkers munching away on all the carbs and candy they want and me sitting there with my stomach growling. NOT a good combo. I'm stressed, bored, anxious...all of the above. I'm SO TIRED of thinking about food that nothing even tastes good anymore. But, I loaded up the fridge with veggies again and this week I will try cauliflower mash and zucchini spaghetti. I'll let you know how it goes. Can't give up yet...i have to look HOT for Chip in six weeks. :)
