Weeks in Training and Cooking (1/20 – 2/9)

10 Feb

Hopefully this is the last time (for a while) I find myself making up for backlogged training and cooking, but I’m not holding my breath.  One week from Wednesday I am off to WDW for the Glass Slipper Challenge and man, do I NEED this trip!  FYI Mother Nature, you screw with my flight with this apocalyptic wintry craziness and I will kick your ass!

In other news, I had not 1, but TWO RXs in CrossFit last week!  Happy! Happy!  Joy!  Joy!  But we’ll get to that.


Week of 1/20 – 1/26

Monday – 4.75 mile run.  This run went WAAAAAAY better than last time, plus with negative splits, yay!

Tuesday – CrossFit
WarmUp: 3 rounds of 20 inch worms & 20 Wall Squats
Skill: Clean Jerk 4×3 (70#)
Squat Clean/Jerk (60#)
Total: 15 (Man that doesn’t seem like a lot)

Wednesday – Apocalyptic Weather/Rest Day

Thursday – CroosFit
WarmUp: High Knees (3x); 4 Rounds of :30 Hand Stand Holds (I have to modify) & 10 Muscle Squat Cleans (no weight, just the motions with a PVC pipe)
Skill: 4×4 Squat Cleans (55#, 50#, 65#, 70#)
WOD: 10 min AMRAP

Friday – CrossFit
WarmUp: Bear Crawls x 4
Skill: 5×1 Power Snatch (50#, 55#, 60#, 65#-fail, 65#-fail).

The 65# fails are really annoying because I’ve done 65# before and can’t seem to get it again.  60# isn’t that bad.  I think my mind just forever messes with me with that Snatch weight now:/

Felt so weak – being sick was telling me NOT to work out

Monday – CrossFit
Warm Up: 5 Burpees on the minute for 5 minutes

WOD: CF Games Open 11.4
10 min AMRAP

3 rounds of 7 Pull-Ups (w/ machine lifting 98# for me) / 7 Tricep Dips (w/ machine lifting 90# for me)

Super Bowl is NO joke in my house!

Week of 2/3 – 2/9

Monday – Rest/Snow Day.  I was pooped from Super Bowl!  Even took the day off from work!

Tuesday – CrossFit
WarmUp: 20 Walking Lunges; 20 Goblet Squats (12kg); 20 American KB Swings (12kg)
WOD: 300m Row 6x (rest when partner rows…I didn’t have a partner so it was 1:00 rest between rows)
3:00 Rest
100 Goblet Squats (24kg/16kg) – Did 16kg
Total Time: 26:37 RX BABY!!!!! (I don’t care if it took me an hour, I RXed!)

Wednesday – Rest Day/Apocalyptic Weather (taking 10 minutes to walk 1 block to get to my bus because my stupid office was still open is a workout!)

Thursday – CrossFit
WarmUp: 100 Jumping Jacks
Skill: 4×3 Front Squats on 2:00 (75#) w/ 3 second pause at bottom of squat
WOD: CF Games Open 12.4
12 min AMRAP
150 Wall Balls (did 10#, would have done the 14# Rx if I knew my box HAD the 14# ball)
90 Double Unders (that’s 270 Singles…if I made it that far)
30 Muscle Ups
Total: 133 Reps (no rounds).  I’m really kinda annoyed because Wall Balls are my strong suit and I wanted to at least get
through those, but what can you do?

Friday – CrossFit
WarmUp: 500m Row; 20 Wall Squats; 10 inch worms
Skill: Power Snatch 5×2 (50#, 55#, 55#, 60#, 65#-Fail-Stupid 65#!)
WOD: 250KB Swings (24kg/16kg) – can only do them while your partner does
4 Shuttle Sprints
Total Time: 14:59 RX!!!!  I’m not going to lie, if I was doing this by myself, or a partner who wasn’t doing the RX weight, I
probably would have used the 12kg, but there was no way I was going to let my partner not get this because of me.

Celebrated oldest friend’s birthday in Jersey City!


I❤ these guys…but not the Jameson, ugh!

Saturday – Legs were crying from Tuesday and Thursday, so REST DAY!  (Although played with my adorable 5 month nephew ALL day)

Sunday – Rest Day (got lazy, it was cold out and I wasn’t feeling too hot)

And I had numerous people call me fat after all that!  …just sayin.

Anyway, I don’t remember when I cooked things (although most was for the Super Bowl party) but I remember most of what I made, so here ya go!

Beef Stew with Beer Biscuits (those were yummy!)
Veggie Quiche (yes, I made something healthy!)
Chicken Parm with Pasta with Garlic and Oil
Grilled Chicken Artichoke Flatbread
Quinoa Tabouleh (again with the something healthy!)
3 Minute Dip (ok, that was a Pampered Chef thingie)
Artichoke Dip
Kielbasa with Mustard Apple Jelly Sauce (sounds weird, but totally works)
Pizza Roll
Baked Ziti
Deviled Eggs
Bacon Thingies (yes that’s what they’re called…well, at least I call them)

Phew!  I’m exhausted just typing all that!  There might be more food, but that’s all I remember

    Wohoo!!! Congrats on the Rx workouts! And seriously…the snatch is the worst movement. EVER. I hate it and it confuses me and girls that are literally 50# lighter than me and 6 inches shorter can snatch more than me easily. I just don’t get it. My brain can’t put all the parts of the movement together without having a brain fart. And omg I hated that Open WOD with the wall balls. 150 of them are NO JOKE and you got a serious amount of them in! Try it again in a few months and I’m sure you’ll improve even more!

      Snatches are horrible. Every time we do them as a skill, my coach pretty much spends the entire time working with me on the movements and he gets so proud/happy when I finally get it right but then I can never do it again, it sucks! And thanks! I hope I improve with the wall balls, I KNOW I can get that 150, although it’s going to be tougher to do it know because one coach says I have to go for the 10′ target because he knows I can:/
