Weekly Workouts March 9-15

This week we began our 3rd consecutive week of home remodeling. It had been an exhaustive previous 2 weeks, but I thought I knew what was in store for me for week 3. I was wrong. Undecided Turns out a complete kitchen and bath overhaul is much EASIER than to have 1200 square feet of your home tiled.  I'll be writing a post soon (with pictures!!) about the entire remodel! It looks beautiful!

Okay, so with the craziness that has been going on, my workouts have still been cut short. But that's okay. Remodeling is NOW DONE and life can get back to normal. Well, sort of. The Trio have Spring Break this week, so we'll be out having some fun in the sun!!

Here was my week in workouts! And I need to make sure that I take pictures of my workouts because they are never the same so I can't remember from day to day!!

Sunday-REST DAY!! Well, sort of. We started off the morning with unpacking, etc., and then spent the afternoon and evening walking around Busch Gardens, having a Safari Tour and then seeing the Steve Miller Band LIVE!! It was awesome.

Total Steps: 16,662

Monday-CrossFit Today I did the Open WOD 14.2 It was hard! I cried! I was so mad at myself for not being more successful instead of looking at the bigger picture and how far I've come since starting CrossFit one year ago. In 3 minutes I attempted 10 OHS (overhead squats.) I did more than 10 in an attempt to get 1, but no matter how hard I tried I just could not break parallel. UGH. Something to work on!

Calories: 649

Total Steps: 14,307

Tuesday-CrossFit. Walked in to the box this morning with a better attitude after talking things over with my En Fuego peeps. Our WOD was a great one!!

A 17 minute AMRAP with wall balls and power cleans. The power cleans were a "ladder" with the weights getting heavier on each set of 20.

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (55#)

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (65#)

40 wall balls

20 power cleans (75#)

and then I ran out of time! But I was proud of how well I did, and even came home with a CrossFit battle scar, a nice bruise on my collarbone!

Calories: 539

Total Steps: 24,575

Wednesday-CrossFit. We spent 15 minutes working on GOAT work. I worked on double unders and while I am pretty confident that I managed to get a handful! After GOAT we did STRICT press. This is the hardest lift for me. Ugh. Afterwards we did an 8 minute (EMOM) of 100m SPRINT and with the remaining time we did as many HRPU as we could. Then we rested on the odd minute. I'm taking a break from running, so I sprinted on the Air Dyne for 40 seconds, and did 20 seconds of HRPU.

Total Calories: 435

Steps: 18,835

Thursday-REST DAY

Steps: 15,158

Friday-CrossFit Open WOD 14.3

This was a GREAT WOD for me!! An 8 minute AMRAP of deadlifts and box jumps! I'll have a full recap up soon, but I LOVED it and did better than I thought I would!! WooHoo!! I also had the Trio with me because they were off from school. They loved watching me, and I loved knowing that they were there cheering me on!!

Total Calories: 701

Steps: 12,486

Saturday-REST DAY!!

Again, not too much rest as we did a ton of unpacking, cleaning, organizing, etc...

Steps: 25,092

Overall, it was a GREAT week and I moved over 130,000 steps!!

How was your week in workouts???

  • Great job on the work-outs! You are so committed to it. I have a hard time juggling it all and trying to make it fit. I can't wait to read the whole house project.
  • Must. try. crossfit.  You motivate the heck out of me.  So impressive.  My hubby is a contractor, by definition that means, we remodel our remodels, I can't imagine remodeling and working out in the same week much less same days.  Go Jenny Go!  
  • I have been on my fitness journey since November 2013 and started at 336. I am now at 289 and my weekly workouts consist of walking/ jogging  on treadmill with interval incline and speed 5-6 days a week. About a month and a half ago I started incorporating a weight routine 3-4 days a week and I you tube workout videos. You are such an inspiration to me! At 45, divorced from a 20 yr abusive marriage and almost 2 years into recovery from alcoholism, my body was falling apart literally! I am loving my journey into the second half of my life and watching you attack it every day with every thing you have helps keep the fire under my arse! LOL Keep up the amazing work!
  • I have heard so much about cross-fit and it's benefits.  Is that something that you can do at home?  I take care of an elderly gentleman 16 hours a day and cannot get out to the gym.  I set up a home gym in one of his spare bedrooms which has helped a lot with finding a way to stay fit while at work.  I was looking for something that is inexpensive and fun to do.
