What’s up guys?! Just checking in after week 1 of the WholeLifeChallenge. It’s actually been pretty good. No major complaints from me – minus the non-existent coffee creamer. Check out the video for my info on how I did during week 1.
and hey… I’m wearing makeup and did my hair for you guys. Be impressed, mmmkay?
Diz has been doing great as well. I think he’s been struggling more with cravings.
Last night he begged to go to the grocery store and get a root beer float. (they were advertising a $1 deal)
I told him he could go, but I wasn’t going to cheat.
So he fell asleep on the couch instead.
We’ve had some great workouts this week.
I’ve spent the last 2 weeks with a slight back injury. But this week I’m finally feeling better and I have been KILLING it at Elevated CrossFit!
(well… I think I have been.)
On Wednesday – we did the Bear Complex (5 x 5)
I’ve never done it before so I was excited to try.
I always ask Tyson for a little guidance, so I know where to start and where to push too.
I started at 65lbs and finished my last set at 105lbs!!
I wish I had video or picture proof, but I forgot my camera card in my laptop!
But it was GREAT. I was smiling from ear to ear when I was done!
and had great guidance from Tyson and Van (our Strongman Coach).
Then, last night – we worked on 1RM (1 rep max) Snatch and Cleans.
Wanna check out my snatch? (Bahaha – I love CrossFit humor)
The Snatch is such a technical lift and has ALWAYS felt awkward to me, so I asked Tyson for some pointers and he decided to film and show me. And he said my form was the best it’s been, but I still need to work on getting my bum lower and my shoulders DIRECTLY over the bar. I ended up getting to 95lbs and then dropped down again and worked more on form. It’s getting there! WOO WOO!
Then I was able to get a 10lb PR on my clean. I WAS SO STOKED! I’d been dying to do cleans forever. The last time we did them I was so sick that day that I had to miss class. So last night was a great night. THIS GIRL had a HUGE smile on her face all night. I LOVE feeling strong. I freakin’ LOVE it.
so yeah… that’s my week 1 update.
