So that WOD wore me out Friday - I was happy that I ran. It was hard and I could tell I did not have the movement in my right ankle all the way back, but it was a start. And we have to start somewhere. :) Friday night we had our monthly box crew dinner. We went to El Camino Real in Philly. I was a good girl. I didn't eat and only had one drink. (we will discuss why in a little bit! It was a fun time. I started having some pain in my right side/ovary so thankfully someone had some Naproxen. Took some and was feeling a little better - enough I could walk normal. I swear one day my endometriosis is going to be gone, hopefully. I'm more excited it did not escalate and turn into another hospital visit like last time. Yes, it happens more then I'd like to admit actually. When I got home, I just crashed...hard. I slept in till about 11:30. It felt great. I missed the chance to WOD, but after looking at the WOD for that day there is no way I could have done it. Squat movements and my hip is still not working right so would have been a no go for me. However, I did play on the trainer for a little bit. Which was nice. First time in a WHILE and my ankle worked wonderfully. I also did some tabata work - situps, pushups, and handstand holds. Felt good.
Sunday was some food prep and relax day. It was also the first day in a LONG time I was super homesick. No Mama Dukes to hangout or take to brunch. No SIL to hang with. It was Mother's Day and I missed my Mama Dukes. Also, I never sent my gift for her or SIL (or SIL's birthday present...I am the WORST I know). It's on my To Do list. Along with a million other things. I did however make myself breakfast - eggs and bacon (on the foreman and it was AMAZING), chicken salad for the week and pulled our steak for me and Allie for dinner. I did lay down for a little bit on the couch to watch Grimm and catch up on my show. Look at how Scarlet curls up behind me. She is SO stinking cute! I did take them to the farm to get some veggies for dinner and the week. When I got home I made some Paleo ranch - HOLY AMAZING. Sad I waited so long to try it. Allie came over Sunday evening. I made us steak and veggies - amazing. I love cooking. We were still hungry (or maybe I was haha) so I also made some Paleo chocolate chip cookies -- and yes, cavemen would have eaten them back then had they known about them. I used coconut flour. I like the ones with almond flour better. Maybe I just need to play with the recipe. I'm not sure. It was a great end of the weekend. Little Game of Thrones action and bed!
Monday started with some PT. I'm getting stronger and better at a lot of things. Still have a good chunk of movement to get back.
Once I got to school I got to leave - we had a softball tournament. I wish we had a normal season - I think the girls would really like it. Instead, we practiced for 2 almost 3 weeks and then played 3 games yesterday. We lost 2 and won 1. I love this group of kiddos - they are awesome!
After school I went home and got ready to WOD - it was Split Jerks and it was going to be my first time back since I broke my ankle to trying Split Jerks. I did it. All 4 runs which means I RAN A MILE!! WOOT WOOT! I also did lunges. No DB or bar, just body weight, but I did them. It's progress. I did the Split Jerks at 95# and the conditioning at 75#. Feeling good this morning.
Now lets also discuss my last post...I do NOT want to lose weight like a normal girl. PLEASE don't get it twisted. Maybe I didn't express myself right. I USE to have a goal weight. I USE to want to weigh 150-155 and was focused on that. Now what I want is to lose FAT. I want to gain muscle and cut the fat. That is where I struggle. I can't figure out how to do that. I'm working on it, but I haven't figured it out yet. I am toying with the idea of getting a second gym membership. For a spin class, yoga class and a pool. I need that stuff. I need to get more focused and work on stuff.
What do you think about a second gym?
What do you think I should do to cut fat?
