It’s Friday, I should be happy that it’s the last day of the work week.
Unfortunately my day didn’t start off so well and actually last night didn’t end off so well either.
I sit on the parent and executive board of my son’s nursery schoool/daycare. And we had our monthly meeting last night, and I knew it would be a fairly lengthy meeting, since the AGM takes place in a couple weeks and we need to have our financials and everything else approved, finalized, etc. I was thinking maybe 1.5 hours.. then I could sneak out and go to crossfit. Within the first 30 minutes, at the pace that the meeting was moving through the agenda, I realized that the meeting would be at least 2 hours, so no chance of me going to crossfit. What I had not anticipated, was a 4 hour meeting!! Oh my gosh! That was one long meeting! To top it off, when it’s time to leave it’s snowing.. again!! I get home and all I want to do is go to bed, but then I see all the snow in the drive way and convince myself that I should go shovel the snow. Doesn’t help that I had pizza and a banana chocolate chip muffin at the meeting. At least the shovelling burned off some calories.. hehe..
As soon as I’m done getting ready for bed, I grab my tablet and go to games.crossfit.com to find out what the 14.2 WOD will be.
Here it is:
Every 3 minutes for as long as possible complete:
2 rounds of:
10 overhead squats
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups
2 rounds of:
12 overhead squats
12 chest-to-bar pull-ups
2 rounds of:
14 overhead squats
14 chest-to-bar pull-ups
Etc., following same pattern until you fail to complete both rounds
This isn’t going to go well for me.
I haven’t done any OHS work in over 2 months, since my shoulder injury. My shoulder is much better and I can probably do OHS now, but I don’t know about the 65lbs. That definitely won’t be easy. I’m not even sure if I can get 65lbs in an OHS position.
Then there’s the C2B pull ups. Strict pull ups I can do, very slowly… is my chest touching the bar? Definitely not. So I’m not sure how I’ll tackle the C2B pull ups. I do have some time to try and learn/practice. Of course I won’t make it to the C2B pull ups unless I complete 10 OHS… I may not even get that so maybe I shouldn’t worry?
I’m still struggling to get back to the whole30 100%. Last night was a perfect example where I let myself eat pizza and I wasn’t even craving pizza, it was just there. In the past, when I thought about indulging in pizza, I thought about how that would affect my physique, my weight. Now I realize it’s not even about that, it’s how it makes me feel afterwards. And eating those non-compliant foods always leave me feeling awful and bloating and with headaches.
I need to get better with my eating again. Just gotta do it!
