Made it to the gym this morning to lift:
Back Squats x3
5 dips (static bars, unassisted)
15 kb swings
Had planned on a spin class tonight, but tweaked my back stretching or something...more stretch and rest tonight.
On the diet front--c wiss of no crying in crossfit is proposing a blogging world paleo/primal re-invigoration. The summer has been hard on many of us, with work, jobs, husbands deployed, and a myriad of other things. The carbs are back in my life big time....pasta, bread, pizza, ice cream, crackers, cookies....all things that a year ago I would have never dreamed of touching. I want them gone. I want my belly to feel good again. I want to have energy and feel like I can conquer the world--I want all my clothes to fit when I have to start back to work. I don't like it when the little devil tells me that another bag of cookies or chips while hiding under a blanket on my couch will "make me feel better." Bull shit. (well sorta).
I'm in a place where I have no support system to help me with this. I'm living alone, not working, spending most of my time alone, and stuck traveling a lot. Part of me tells me to enjoy the foods of europe within reason and stop worrying, but really? That's how I got here in the first place...saying its "ok" to cheat here and there. I still believe it is ok to have a cheat day, but only when they are deserved. I look at myself in the gym these days and I'm often embarassed to say I'm a crossfitter...a certified one at that. Clearly, I can't take my own coaching. So, what do you say blogoland? Thoughts on a virtual challenge/accountability system? We'd love to hear your ideas/comments! We could even start a little email chat list or something....
