I got punched in the butt… February 25, 2010

I can’t remember EVER having a butt as sore as it is today. After Tuesday’s overhead walking lunges, it feels like someone punched me repeatedly in the middle of each cheek. Pleasant. I’m not sure what today’s workout is, but I’m hoping it loosens up my sore buns.

The WOD yesterday was basically Fran, but with double unders. PASS. I buried my face in my laptop and got a ton of work done. I ordered new posters for the front office, and I’m PUMPED to see them. Our old faded ones need some sprucing up.

It turns out that breaking up with Sam Adams was very good for my body. No…I’m no talking about health and longevity, I’m talking about the SCALE. I’m down 6lbs since Monday, and I couldn’t be happier. I should be in 139 land very soon! I still want beer.

I’ve been day dreaming about the 2010 Games lately. I am 100% excited to compete again, but I think I’ll honestly cry if I have to run that hill again. Like, weeping openly and shaking my fist angrily kind of crying.

I should know by now that my husband is the smartest man on the planet. Why do I even question the things he tells me? In my last post I commented on how Bill told me to expect a SUCK FEST if I chose a path of leaning out….well he was right! DAMMIT.

At least I’ve gotten over feeling sad all the time. That was the worst two weeks ever. I’m feeling like my old self again, but I seem to be running out of gas quickly these days. I’m working hard to really dial in my nutrition. So far I’ve lost almost 5lbs since Monday morning. Here’s the plan Bill laid out for me:

carbs: sub 40g
protein: 140g
fat: 127g

It’s a lot of food…about 1885 calories a day. Despite all the food, I just want a beer REAL BAD. I won’t lie…I worked out tonight and thought about Sam Adams the entire time.

Boo Hoo....I just want a BEER!


Back to blogging February 5, 2010

Blogs always seem like such a good idea at first, don’t they? Somewhere between running a gym full time, keeping up with the Fort’s blog, and trying to maintain a social life, I forgot about this amazing blog.

Well here I am! I’m back at it!

I’m considering taking a little time off from working out….maybe a week or two just to hit the reset button on my body. I’ve been tired, emotional and just feeling kind of BLAH for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I can’t shake this weird sad feeling. Shrugs.

I’m still on a never ending quest to get leaner. Bill has told me that I will need to be willing to sacrifice ALL ATHLETIC ACHIEVEMENTS temporarily in order to lean out. Psh. That’ll SUCK. I have tried going through this before, and I just can’t seem to make it past the first few weeks.

Half of me says: “I don’t care what it takes, I really want to lose 15lbs and be beautifully lean”

Other half of me says: “What difference does it make if you have visible abs if you’re crabby and tired all the time and getting beat by 65 year old ladies in the workout?”

Sigh. Bill asked me yesterday “what are your goals? Is your goal to be an individual competitor in the CrossFit Games?” Sadly, I couldn’t answer yes to that question. I don’t think I have it in me to be an individual competitor at the Games. Is that shitty of me? Am I selling myself short for not shooting for the Games?

It sure was sweet winning that gold medal in rowing…
