Weekly Workouts March 16-22

My kids were on Spring Break this week, and our house is still undergoing remodeling. Thankfully the remodeling is *almost* done, just two more rooms (our bedroom and Ronin's bedroom) and then we'll be done!! Lots of packing and unpacking still going on, but we'll get there...eventually.

Spring Break and remodeling have taken a toll on my workout schedule, but I managed to get in 4 CrossFit workouts, spent one day at SeaWorld, and two days away playing with my kids at the beach.

So here's how last week played out for me.

Sunday-REST DAY!! Well, as much rest as one can take with lawn work, unpacking, rearranging, that sort of thing.

Steps: 16,217

Monday- CrossFit. And it was St. Patrick's Day, so of course we had a themed WOD! We did 4 leaf clover!

1 minute of floor press, rest 1 minute, 1 minute of ring rows, rest 1 minute, 1 minute of double unders/singles, rest 1 minute, 1 minute burpees jumping up to a 6" target REPEAT everything 4 times. I started off the WOD with a 65# floor press, and made it one round, then had to drop to 45# for last 3 minutes. With double unders, let's say I tried them. I have no idea if I was actually doing them or not, but I was attempting them! It was a good WOD!

Calories: 397

Total Steps: 15,960


Tuesday-CrossFit. Can't remember exactly what we did, but it involved power cleans and jerks. LOL. That's all I can remember!! Spent the rest of the day with my kids at the pool just chilling in a beach chair!

Calories: 635

Total Steps: 11.070


Wednesday-CrossFit. Complete 4 rounds FOR TIME:

  • 20 wall balls
  • 10 pull-ups (assisted)

And then (not for time) some old school hammer curls with a 25# dumbbell.

Calories: 568

Total Steps: 17,677

And then afterwards I took the kids and the dog to Honeymoon Island dog beach!



3 rounds FOR TIME:

  • 25 push press
  • 1000m row

I started the push press with 55# and did one round with that, then dropped to 45# for the last 2 rounds. That bar gets heavy fast!!


Total Steps: 19,525

Saturday-REST DAY! Well, BEACH DAY!!

Total Steps: 14,428


 Overall my data shows that I moved 110,803 steps. Not my best week, but considering all I had going on, I'LL TAKE IT!!

Weekly Workouts March 9-15

This week we began our 3rd consecutive week of home remodeling. It had been an exhaustive previous 2 weeks, but I thought I knew what was in store for me for week 3. I was wrong. Undecided Turns out a complete kitchen and bath overhaul is much EASIER than to have 1200 square feet of your home tiled.  I'll be writing a post soon (with pictures!!) about the entire remodel! It looks beautiful!

Okay, so with the craziness that has been going on, my workouts have still been cut short. But that's okay. Remodeling is NOW DONE and life can get back to normal. Well, sort of. The Trio have Spring Break this week, so we'll be out having some fun in the sun!!

Here was my week in workouts! And I need to make sure that I take pictures of my workouts because they are never the same so I can't remember from day to day!!

Sunday-REST DAY!! Well, sort of. We started off the morning with unpacking, etc., and then spent the afternoon and evening walking around Busch Gardens, having a Safari Tour and then seeing the Steve Miller Band LIVE!! It was awesome.

Total Steps: 16,662

Monday-CrossFit Today I did the Open WOD 14.2 It was hard! I cried! I was so mad at myself for not being more successful instead of looking at the bigger picture and how far I've come since starting CrossFit one year ago. In 3 minutes I attempted 10 OHS (overhead squats.) I did more than 10 in an attempt to get 1, but no matter how hard I tried I just could not break parallel. UGH. Something to work on!

Calories: 649

Total Steps: 14,307

Tuesday-CrossFit. Walked in to the box this morning with a better attitude after talking things over with my En Fuego peeps. Our WOD was a great one!!

A 17 minute AMRAP with wall balls and power cleans. The power cleans were a "ladder" with the weights getting heavier on each set of 20.

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (55#)

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (65#)

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (75#)

and then I ran out of time! But I was proud of how well I did, and even came home with a CrossFit battle scar, a nice bruise on my collarbone!

Calories: 539

Total Steps: 24,575

Wednesday-CrossFit. We spent 15 minutes working on GOAT work. I worked on double unders and while I am pretty confident that I managed to get a handful! After GOAT we did STRICT press. This is the hardest lift for me. Ugh. Afterwards we did an 8 minute (EMOM) of 100m SPRINT and with the remaining time we did as many HRPU as we could. Then we rested on the odd minute. I'm taking a break from running, so I sprinted on the Air Dyne for 40 seconds, and did 20 seconds of HRPU.

Total Calories: 435

Steps: 18,835

Thursday-REST DAY

Steps: 15,158

Friday-CrossFit Open WOD 14.3

This was a GREAT WOD for me!! An 8 minute AMRAP of deadlifts and box jumps! I'll have a full recap up soon, but I LOVED it and did better than I thought I would!! WooHoo!! I also had the Trio with me because they were off from school. They loved watching me, and I loved knowing that they were there cheering me on!!

Total Calories: 701
