A collection of randomness, things I love and find inspiring. Currently a blog to help me become strong and Fit the healthy way. =D

 

I woke up early to go to saturday Cross fit! It was fun. I found out that 45lbs is way too easy for me for deadlifts. Here is what we did. 

Warm Up: mobility stretches and lunges

The work out: 4 rounds 20 reps of each

Toes to Bar (ughh I’m getting calluses)

Box Jumps (Finally made it on to the box 20” So excited)

Burpees (bleh)

Deadlifts

Ok, so I weigh like 85lbs (nobigdeal i’m only like 4’7” ) 

But this to me is a big deal, I dead lifted 65 lbs :D I felt pretty awesome afterward. so yay me! 

OWww Todays workout :)

Warm up with stretching, Jumping Jacks, Toe Touches, Arm Circles, etc.

Walking Lunges with Overhead weight ( I used a 20lb kettle bell for the first 2 rounds and then switched to 15lbs)

Pull Ups (or rows with the hanging hand thingys)

Pylo Push Ups ( I reallly suck at push ups, I did these on my knees, without a clap in between)

I’m running a 5k this weekend! Yay!! Its for our animal shelter, which is pretty exciting, there’s gonna be puppies and kittens and dogs!!!! 

The animal shelter where I live is no longer owned by the county, its a private organization AND a NO KILL shelter!! Which makes it all the better, they are raising money to build their new facility which will have a lot more room for the animals and be much cleaner than when the county had control over it! 

I had so much fun at the gym tonight. Here is what we did:

WU: mobility stretching, 1min of butt kickers and crunches.

400m run

15 Power cleans (I used a 30 lb bar)

6 burpees facing the bar (jump over bar in between each one)

25 air squats

800m run

repeat the above exercises (save the 400m run for last though)

5 min. of rowing

1 min of bicycle crunches 

Stretching.

I am so sore from monday still though. I will post what we did monday in a few minutes. 

I have probably already posted about this BUT MOTHERFUCKING CROSSFIT GYM 3 BLOCKS FROM MY HOUSE YO! AND IN THIS TINY ASS TOWN! Hells yes!! <3 I already signed up!!! 

Yayy Went for a run today, its been a lil while. I don’t know how far I ran but I know I gave my max effort and thats what counts :) 

I messed around with using my new exercise ball. I think I got one that was a bit too big for me, but I’ll make it work. I have terrible balance.. holy crap. 

Now its time to do some yoga!!

Once I get some more cash I will be able to have something other than pasta for lunch. :D  Pretty good for being on a grocery budget of $12. and working with what I have at home. 

I worked my ass off today :D  I ran 2 miles on the elliptical in 18:50. A new personal record for me. And then did another 1/3 mile cool down. Afterwards My friend and I did some ab stuff for about 15 minutes and then we stretched.
