I also got to rock my new Saucony shoes and my Nike capris :)
Today is the end of the Paleo Challenge at Aspire. I'm glad it's done, but I don't plan on going back to non-paleo. I don't think I'll be as strict, but I plan to do 80-85% of the time full Paleo. I'm most excited for sushi with Dollface on Thursday! Paleo has definitely taught me how much I let myself cheat for reason that don't really equal the cheat. I'm hoping to keep going in the direction I am. I feel better and have leaned out. I still have about 15-20ish pounds I'd love to cut in a "dream world", but if I keep toning but stay at this weight, I'm ok with that too :) I don't want ya'll to just hear about my Paleo world - I've asked two of my friends from Aspire to share their story too!!
Today we did Aspire's benchmark workout "The Garage" - For time - 3 rounds - 10 pull-ups, 10 Front Squats, 10 Burpees. Back at the beginning of the Paleo Challenge - it kicked my butt - I did 9:36 - 65# for the FS and the black (most help) band for the pull-ups. By the third round I couldn't even get over the bar for the pull-ups. Now, I've been doing a lot better on the pull-up lately as I've said in other post - I've even gone down on bands to the grey with a red. Today - we did "The Garage" again - exactly as we did at the front of the Challenge. I did 6:23!!! Talk about showing progress!! I couldn't believe how much of an improvement I made. And getting to use the black band was crazy - I remember how hard they use to be and today they were super easy!! This alone explains why I LOVE CrossFit - getting to see your body change, you outlook change and your workouts get better! FANTASTIC :)
That's all for now! Enjoy your day!
