Weekly Workouts March 23-29

30. March 2014 12:14 by jennifer | 2 Comments

Is my house ever going to be finished with the remodel?? This week we didn't have contractors in the house, but I still had a ton of work to do. I had to prep the last two rooms of our house to be worked on this coming week. I had to arrange appliance deliveries. My girls both got braces on Tuesday. It's just been such a challenging 6 weeks with my schedule being so wacky. Thank goodness it's almost over!!

So how did I do with my weekly workouts?

Sunday-REST DAY!! Well, kinda. I spent the day down in Venice with my mom and dad and we took the #TampaTrio to the North Jetty Beach.

Total Steps: 17,231

Monday-CROSSFIT!! Today I did the CrossFit Open WOD 14.4 I modified the WOD after the rowing portion so that I could continue to work, yet still record a score for the Open. It was a FUN WOD.

Calories burned: 579

Total Steps: 13,201

Tuesday-CROSSFIT!! Wozers. This WOD was a foreshadowing of what was going to be appearing for the Open WOD 14.5

But it was a lifesaving WOD for me. FINALLY after MONTHS of not being able to squat below parallel, I finally got it on Tuesday and it was all because of this WOD!!

Total Calories: 733

Steps: 16,479

Wednesday-CROSSFIT!! This was supposed to be a recovery WOD. We started off with a fun obstacle course warm-up. We had box jumps/step-ups then went to a gymnastics mat for somersaults, then 5 burpees, then 10 hanging knee raises, then we climbed under 2 bench press benches, and then we did a bear climb. 2 rounds. It was fun! Here I am posing at the top of the box, showing off my new Reebok Skyscape shoes. I love these shoes!!

And even though this was a "for time" WOD, I went a little slower because I wanted to go heavier on the KB swings, so I chose the 35 pound bell. And tire flipping is always fun! I picked a heavy tire, too.

Total Calories: 586

Steps: 23,999 (seriously had I checked this before I went to bed I would have walked one more freaking step!)

Thursday-REST DAY!! I have no idea what I did today.

Steps: 13,743

Friday-CROSSFIT!! Open WOD 14.5 Oh my word!! You can read all about it here!!

It was a calorie burner that's for sure!

And I didn't stop most of the day. It was an exhausting day and I couldn't wait to get to bed!

Total Steps: 14,086

Calories: 1157

Saturday-REST DAY!! And I did rest. I even took a nap! Though I also pulled up carpeting in the master bedroom. I also went to the box and celebrated the end of the Open!

Total Steps: 11,470

Overall it was a pretty decent week, but I'm really looking forward to my schedule returning to normal!

How was your week in workouts??

Burping and Thrusting my way Though the CrossFit Open 14.5-Recap

29. March 2014 12:13 by jennifer | 4 Comments

Like I had the previous 4 weeks, on Thursday night, 8pm I anxiously sat on my couch, Surface tablet on my lap, headphones in my ears, as my husband watched some awful show on TV, and my kids ran around behind me playing with the dog. But I blocked that all out. Dave Castro was about to announce CrossFit Open WOD 14.5 and then 5 CrossFit Games winners were going to complete the WOD against each other live on TV. Dave announced the WOD with that little smirk that he has when he knows he's about to... [More]

Push Away the Screen: SeaWorld's 50th Celebration and Sea of Surprises

27. March 2014 09:27 by jennifer | 6 Comments

Disclaimer: The #TampaTrio and I were invited by Sea World to attend the opening day of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.   The kids and I arrived bright and early, were warmly greeted by our personal host, Britney. The trio munched on cupcakes and orange juice while we watched a montage about the history of Sea World. Fun fact: My MOM was kissed by Shamu in 1976. She was picked from the audience, dressed up like George Washington, taken up high on a platform, and Shamu jumped straight up o... [More]
