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)
Yay! I finally did a box jump onto the 20” box! <3 I’m so happy!!!
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.
27-21-15-9-3 (Reps of each)
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)
After all that do 100 leg lifts ( lying down, do 10 at a time, if you can kick up at the ceiling)
Here is what we did tonight at crossfit :) MY arms hurt soo much.
21-15-9 reps of each
Man Makers <—- (aka HELL for your arms)
100 Flutter Kicks
50 Sit ups
OK!! I will actually post what we did on Monday..I forgot. :)
Warm Up: Jump Roping (double unders if you could…I could not, I can barely use the rope, so I did it without…) 20, 40, 60, 80, 120, 180, 240, 240, 180,120, 80, 60, 40, 20…. Basically…lots and lots of jumping.
3 Rounds…As a group get to the rep count on each exercise (adjust rep count for the # of ppl in the group) We had a group of 5 people
Definitely have a white board and a calculator handy.
Round 1: 500 reps of each 1min. intervals.
T push ups
Round 2: 500 Reps of each. 1 min. intervals
Lateral Jumps over a mat
Shuttle Runs (only do 100 of these)
Round 3: 1 minute each of each
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.
15 Power cleans (I used a 30 lb bar)
6 burpees facing the bar (jump over bar in between each one)
25 air squats
repeat the above exercises (save the 400m run for last though)
5 min. of rowing
1 min of bicycle crunches
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 :)
When I workout I feel like a badass…
Hmmm, How long after I eat should I wait to go for a run?
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!!
For anyone interested. My calorie count was: 1050. (remember I am only 4’8” and I am trying to lose weight) Fitness burned approx: 235( according to web MD) for a total of: 815.

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.
