I had a pretty good week of workouts! I worked out 6 days and 3 of those days were doubles!!
I moved a total of 122,569 steps and burned 19,126 calories for the week. That's an increase of over 12,000 steps, but a decrease of just about 500 calories compared to last week. Weird. I know at one point during my Saturday WOD my Loop wasn't registering because when I uploaded the data it only showed me working out for :40 minutes and burning 97 calories.
I've also been doing the Mamavation boot camp. Burpees, jumping jacks. Takes me just a little bit of time to knock it all out. I don't track my calories for that workout, but maybe I should??
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.
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.
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.

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!
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.
Then I went to Jazzercise and it was a great day for dancing! Lots of kick ball changes and those are always fun
Total Calories: 819
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. 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.
How was your week in workouts??
