This week was my first week back and the kickoff of Whole Life Challenge, so it was a double whammy!
For those of you who are not familiar with WLC, it’s well worth it. It is an eight week program where exercise, mobility work, and perfect nutrition are the goals. It can be challenging, however it is well worth it. I lost about 10 lbs the last time, unfortunately I found it again. These things happen.
Meat, fish, poultry, eggs, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, and good fats like coconut and avocado.
None of this:
Lots of This:
I published a blog not too long ago about Paleo. It can be expensive, time consuming, and frustrating, however if it was easy, it wouldn’t be any fun! Work with me people.
The first couple of days are the hardest because your body is clearing itself of a drug. It it is similar to other withdrawals. Speaking of which, please watch Flight if you have not already. Wow. Your body is addicted to sugar and when you take it away, your body wants it again. You will survive. You will get through it. You will feel better and perform better.
It was great to get back to CrossFit this week. Working out in a regular gym is fine but it’s not the same. I definitely pushed myself harder and got a much higher caliber of a workout. As proof, I am having a tough time walking today. Quality time with the roller is needed.
20 min AMRAP
500 M Row
AMRAP pull ups
I subbed rowing for running and got six rounds and forty two pull ups. I was pretty beat afterwards. It felt great.
10 BW Bench Press
30 Slam Balls
100 ft BW stone carry
I scaled this down and kept the bench press weights between 185 and 205. Subbed 20 squats for slam balls and used a 115 lb. stone. I didn’t record the time. I was just glad to be done!
10 reps of 185 lb dead lift
15 Wall Balls
I subbed 135lbs and did the wall balls. TIme was 9:50.
