Fridays are my favorite! The hard-workin' week is over and it's time to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than throwing some weight around? Literally.
-Get at least 7 hours of sleep the night before
-Eat clean with the exception of ONE sweet
-Drink lots of water (over 120 oz)
-Do something for someone else
Mission: Crossfit Hard
Accomplished? Yes! Our Fridays at Nashville Barbell are the most fun. My non-crossfit friends have taken to calling it my "protein party" (because although it always involves lots of weights, it also sometimes involves food.... and, confession, it ain't always protein ;) But it IS always a party). Tonight's workout (because I forgot to snap a picture of the board) was the "bear complex"- a power snatch, push jerk, back squat and push jerk for strength. The actual WOD was that movement at 80% of our maximum (my max was 113...I think I could've done more), plus a handstand hold for as long as possible for 7 minutes. It. Was. Fun. Really enjoyed this workout.
Mission: Get 7 hour of sleep the night before
Accomplished? Thank God I FINALLY got this one on the money! My body's been begging me for sleep; a request that's fallen mainly on deaf ears. But I did finally get some shut-eye last night. Woo-hoo!!
Mission: Eat Clean, and have a sweet treat
Accomplished? Wait- a WHAT? I'm allowing myself a sweet? Yes, yes I am. On Oly nights, I give myself the OPTION of having dessert. Otherwise I might go crazy! It's not about even taking the option, always, it's about having it. Here's what today looked like nutritionally:
I find my weight loss works best when I "spike" my calories once a week. It's like it jumps starts my metabolism and gets it working harder. So was my mission accomplished? Yes! If you took out my sweet treat, I'd actually be way UNDER my calories. I'm fueled and ready for a double-workout tomorrow!!
Mission: Water, water, water
Accomplished? Can't believe I failed this one, but I did. The day got away from me, and I found myself with an empty water bottle several times. Bleh. Well- y'all know what happens when this happens- IMMEDIATE goal for tomorrow!! :)
Mission: Do something for someone else
Accomplished? Yes indeed! For details, head over to my facebook page and see what I'm offering up!
I know this is short and Ben-and-Jerry's sweet tonight, but this gal is TIRED! Love and water bottles and achy muscles to you all :)
