Workouts

I schedule my workouts like I schedule any important appointment in my life. They are non-negotiable unless an emergency arises, like one of my children (or me!!) is sick. I belong to a pretty awesome CrossFit Box; CrossFit En Fuego, and I prefer to workout there, but there are times when I will run or cycle outdoors as training for events or when I work out at home because of sick kids or conflicting schedules. 

The reason I show you my calorie burn is because I heart rate train. Why should a person train with a heart rate monitor? The best way to improve your fitness and to see results is to train at the right intensity. So with a heart rate monitor, you can make sure you’re not over or under training, and make each session count. I use a Polar HRM as my training partner and I have evidence of my progress – which motivates me each and every time I train.

Weekly Workout Schedule January 19-January 25

 

 Sunday-REST DAY! Steps: 16,299

 

 Monday- Kids were off school for MLK Day. We took a 3 mile walk in the morning from 8:45-10am, came home and got ready for MOSI where we met my mom and niece. It was a very nice day.

 

Steps: 20,090

 

Tuesday- CrossFit and a 2 mile walk.
Complete 75 Wall Balls for time.
* Every minute on the minute complete 7 Sit-Ups.

 

Completed in 3:41.

Calories: 505

Steps: 16,711

Wednesday-Crossfit & 2 mile walk

 

I can't fully remember what the WOD was but I know that it involved 5X5 heavy chest presses, and some pull-ups.

 

 

Calories: 660
Steps: 18,455

Thursday-CrossFit & 2 mile walk. Thursday is usually my "rest day" from CrossFit, but since I missed Monday, I went on Thursday and then came home and did a 2+ mile walk with Matthew.

Calories: 769

 

 Steps: 21,297

Friday-CrossFit & 2 mile walk. Another good day. At CrossFit I made up Monday's WOD. It was a total ass kicker. It was a WOD from the 2013 CrossFit open.

 

Complete a 17 minute AMRAP of:
- 40 Burpees (to 6” target)
- 30 Cleans 45#
- 30 Burpees
- 30 Cleans 55#
- 20 Burpees
- 30 Cleans 65#
- 10 Burpees
- AMRAP Cleans 75# with any remaining time.

 

I actually made it further in the WOD than I thought I would, so I'm pretty proud of myself.

 

Calories: 454+148 (I turned my HRM off and forgot to turn it back on until after we had done a mile, so it's probably closer to 700 calories)

 

Steps: 21,297

 

 Saturday- For the 3rd straight week I made it to CrossFit!! I love Saturday partner WOD's.This was a tough WOD!

 

40 thrusters 40#

 

40 hanging knee raises

 

40 pushups

 

200 double unders (one partner hangs from the bar while the other partner does the jumps)

 

40 pushups

 

40 hanging knee raises

 

40 thrusters 40#

 

Calories: 410

 Weekly Workout Schedule January 12-January 18

Sunday-REST DAY! Steps: 13,927

 

Monday- CrossFit & Jazzercise  HOLY LEG DAY!!! FOR TIME! 50 weighted front squats, 800m run, 50 weighted back squats, 800m run, 50 air squats. WOZERS! I chose to use 45# and we needed to use the same weight for both weighted exercises. I could have gone heavier in the back squats, but I was pretty proud that 1) I RAN the 800m, and 2) I didn't put the bar down at all during the back squats. After the WOD my friend and I walked 2 miles as a post-HOLY LEGS "walk it out, walk it out" Whew. I had originally planned to go to Jazzercise, but thought that walking might serve me better. I think it did because I experienced NO soreness.

Calories: 633
Steps: 18,861

 

Tuesday- CrossFit:
Complete a 20 minute AMRAP of:
- 1/3(assisted) Rope Climb (15')
- 5 (may be assisted) Ring Dips
- 10 Med Ball "Toss and Catches" (20/15)

Because of my clumsiness and overall fear of tripping over a falling ball, or hitting someone with the ball, I opted for wall balls instead of toss and catches. It was a good move on my part. After the WOD I walked 800m.

Calories: 558

Steps: 17,007

 

Wednesday-Crossfit & Jazzercise. I did it! I made it a double header!! We started with a strict press, working up to a 5X3 heavy weight. Overhead is my hardest move, and strict press is my most challenging lift. I maxed out at 50pounds, but was happy that I did it 15 times. Then we did a quick 8 minute WOD of jump ropes and sit-ups, adding additional sets each round. Then I went to Jazzercise. This was my lowest calorie burn yet. There were a lot of confusing feet moves in the routines this instructor picked which caused my heart rate to basically go into resting mode because I was so confused by what was going on. I should have just run in place. Undecided

Calories: CrossFit: 362  Jazzercise:342 Combined= 704
Steps: 22,898

 

Thursday-Jazzercise. Thursday is usually my "rest day" from CrossFit, so I decided I'm just go and do some dancing today! It was fun! A great routine with a new (to me) instructor (Beth) and I loved her class! Such fun music!

Calories: 452

Steps: 15,166

 

Friday-CrossFit & Jazzercise. Another good day. At CrossFit I made up Thursday's WOD. It was great. Started with a 1000m row, then for time, 6 sets of: 10 power snatches, followed by a 100m sprint. I finished in 18:19.

Calories: 414

Then I went to Jazzercise and it was a great day for dancing! Lots of kick ball changes and those are always fun Smile

Calories: 405

Total Calories: 819

Steps: 15,936

 

Saturday- I made it to CrossFit!! I love Saturday partner WOD's. And what made it even better was that my friend Hope who does CrossFit at another box came and did the WOD with me. It was good. A 800m run, (and yes, I ran!!) and then in teams (we did a team of 4) we did 100 wall balls, 125 burpee plank jump overs, and 125 tire flips. I love tire flips. The wall balls were okay too. The burpee plank jump overs totally sucked. Tongue Out Post WOD Hope and I walked 2 miles and chatted. It was nice to walk and chat. We've never really been able to do that before.

At CrossFit I did 4 stations, 5 rounds. NOT for time. 500m row, 12 Lateral DB Raises, 20# Med Ball Slams (in one minute, I did 22 each round) and 20" box step ups holding 10# weights. I also rowed 1400m before the WOD began since I got there a bit early and was COLD. Total calories: 501

Then I went to Jazzercise for an hour of dancing. It was fun!! Total Calories: 453

By NOON I had logged 10,628 steps. Good active day!

Thursday- Double Header!! Great WOD! It started with a 400m run, followed by 9 deadlifts (125#) and 9 Pullups, then a 200m run, followed by 15 deadlifts (115#) and 15 pull-ups, then a 100m run, followed by 21 deadlifts (95#) and 21 pull-ups. Calories 364. Then I went to Jazzercise. We did the same routine as yesterday, yet I didn't burn as many calories and I felt like I was working harder. Weird how that works out. Calories 410.

Again, by Noon I had logged over 10,000 steps! Total steps for Thursday: 17,110

Friday-Whew! I was super sore today but I went to CrossFit Cool Friday is always make-up day, so I made up Tuesday's WOD.We started with a bit of strength. 3 Push Press followed by a Split Jerk, work to a max weight. THEN....50 butterfly sit-ups, 100 single jump ropes, 50 hand release push-ups, 100 single jump ropes, 25 butterfly sit-ups, 50 single jump ropes, 25 hand release push-ups, 50 single jumps.

And then after the WOD I walked a mile. IN 12 MINUTES. That was a new one mile walking PR for me.

Calories: 469

Total Steps: 15,959

Saturday-  What a crazy morning! I was up way before dawn to get ready to appear on ABC News. My daughter Haley came along and she ended up being interviewed, too! I had to dress in work-out clothing, so by the time I got home, it was 8:15am, and I figured I'd go and workout at 9am since I was already dressed and ready to go!

We did a GREAT partner WOD. 25 minutes of a 400m run, 10 crawlers, 15 ring rows, 20 overhead walking lunges.

Calories: 667

Weekly Workout Schedule December 29-January 4

My 2nd week of tracking workouts since September. WooHoo!! I am a bit disappointed that I had 3 rest days last week, but I guess with Christmas smack dab in the middle of the week, it's bound to happen. Which means it's going to happen this week too. Ugh. But I'm planning a NEW workout on Thursday....JAZZERCISE!!

 

Sunday-Rest Day 10,431 steps

 Monday- A very humbling WOD. First time I wasn't able to complete an AMRAP in the time specified. We had 10 minutes to complete 40 bar facing burpee jump overs, 20 clean and jerks, and 10 chest to bar. When the 10 minutes was called I was on my 16th Clean & Jerk. But...I went up in weight. Normally I do 45 pounds for my C&J when it's this many reps. But today my friend took my bar and slid some more weight on it and said YOU CAN DO IT. And ya know what...I did. It took me longer, but I did it. I think I did 65#, might have been 60#, but certainly one of those two weights. And then once time was called I completed the rest of the WOD. Took me 12:45 to do ONE round. Then we went and did a mile for fun. Ronin was with me and he was in a running mood, so he ran with another friend because he's much faster than me. She estimates that they finished in 9:20. He is aiming for a 9:00 mile, so he's really close. 488 Calories.

 Tuesday- WOD in the style of Fight Gone Bad. Which means that it sucked and I loved it!! 5 stations, 1 minute max reps per station, 1 minute rest after the 5 stations, repeat 3 times. Total score is number of reps combined for all 3 rounds. Our stations today (in the order I went in) Wall Balls, Hanging Knee Raises, Jump Rope, Row, 20" Box Step-ups. My total score was 564! Bam! Calories: 537 15,461 steps

 Wednesday- NEW YEARS DAY. Rest Day. I was hoping to get outside and do some gardening and take the kids on their mile walk, but it's raining right now (11:40am) and I have a TV interview at 3:45pm, and then we're heading to the circus, so time is limited today.

 Thursday- Fast WOD. We did a lot of stretching, and then for time complete: 1000m row, 5 rounds of 20 air squats and 14 shoulder to overhead. I did a push jerk. Did the first round with 55 rounds, did the first 7 of the 2nd round with 55 pounds, then dropped to 45 pounds. Did the 3 round with 45 pounds, and the last 2 rounds with 35 pounds. And 15,180 steps. No mile with the kids. It was a very rainy afternoon.  Calories during WOD: 284

 Friday-JAZZERCISE!! My first Jazzercise class in over 15 years. I loved it! Calories: 548 We did our 1 mile, but walked it. Freezing cold and noses and eyes were watering when attempting to run. 16,409 steps.

Saturday-REST Day. We went to Orlando for Haley's birthday. 20,727 Steps

Total Steps: 107,478
Total Calories: 18,567

 

Weekly Workout Schedule December 22-28

I have been a HUGE slacker in keeping my workout page updated since the kids returned to school. I have no idea why. I need to be accountable so I'm going to be updating more regularly. In addition, I received a Polar Loop Daily Fitness/Activity Tracker so I'll be adding in how many steps I get each day as well. The goal is 10,000 steps.

Sunday- REST DAY. 11,830 total steps.

Monday- 12 Days of Christmas WOD. 615 calories burned. 20,463 total steps.

Tuesday- 500m row, 30 pushups, 30 air squats, 4 rounds, plus a 200m prowler push with my son as added weight. 405 calories burned.12,678 steps.

Wednesday-CHRISTMAS Rest Day. 10,603 steps.

Thursday- "Barbara" WOD. 5 rounds of: 20 pull-ups, 30 push-ups, 40 sit-ups, and 50 squats. 429 calories burned. Later in the day the kids and I did a 1 mile run. We'll be doing 1 mile every single day. 16,669 steps.

Friday- 20 minute AMRAP consisting of 21 sit-ups, 15 box jumps, 9 push-ups, 3 modified rope climbs. I did 7 complete rounds. 313 calories.  1 mile run with kids. 18,123 total steps.

Saturday-REST DAY. 11,988 steps. Did 1 mile with kids.  We did have a garage sale in the morning. It was a productive day.

 

For the week my LOOP provided me with this total data: 101,744 steps counted. 17,734 kcal burned. That's 24/7 data. I'm pretty happy with that. I'd really like to try to improve my weekly cardio activities. I think I'm going to look in to Jazzercise. I used to do Jazzercise back in the early 1990's and I really liked it! 


 

Weekly Workout Schedule September 8-14

I have been a SLACKER with keeping my workouts updated. It seems like since the kids went back to school I have LESS time than I did in the summer. HOW does that happen?? But here's to a new week of workouts!

Sunday: Cycle 21.24 miles. 14.8MPH average pace. 658 calories. I came home STARVING and have been pretty much hungry all day long. I need to figure out this nutrition thing.

Reflections: School got out for the kids on Tuesday and the kids had to come to CrossFit with me on Wednesday and Friday.

If I had been at a traditional gym, I would have had to leave, so this was so amazing and so appreciated!!

It hurt to raise my arms to wash my hair. My armpits were even sore!
