Double unders....oh double unders, I will dominate you...Learned some tips and tricks to practicing double unders last week...right now, I can do 5 in a row...doesn't sound like much does it...single unders are ingrained in my brain from childhood...so right now it's a challenge...practice makes perfect! ! I got my speed rope from Rogue fitness and I am glad I did...getting fit!!
Eating right is so important to our bodies. I can often tell by my performance whether I have eaten enough, but more importantly, the type of food, and the quality of the food has a huge impact on us. For me, I like to get my nutrients from real food, #justeatrealfood. Food that is either not processed or little processing. If it comes in a box, or has ingredients I cannot decipher, it is not going in my body. Paying attention to how your body feels shortly after eating tells us a lot about what we are feeding our bodies: Do I feel tired, or energized. Am I hungry an hour later, which is likely from not eating enough or the lack of the appropriate ratio of protein, good fats and good carbohydrates...
Post workout sustenance:
Egg (with salt, pepper, basil & curry powder) ham, on gluten free bread (I do eat gluten free bread once in a while). Mixed greens salad with onions & apple cider vinegar & olive oil, and cottage cheese. So yummy!!
So, I have been going to CrossFit for almost two months now, and I feel amazing!! This was the workout for the day. I LOVE CrossFit!!
Deadlift: 135 pounds
Box Jumps: 25, 1 minute
Row: 16 calories, 1 minute
Burpee box jump overs: 29, 2 minutes
Row: 31 calories, 2 minutes
Since starting CrossFit I am amazed at how much more strength I have, and it has only been two months. I am more conscious of my body position/posture in and out of the gym. My core strength is the best it has been my entire life. I am doing movements that I did not realize I could do...until now!! Eating right and ensuring that we are moving our bodies is so important to live a long, functional life. If I take care of my body, it will take care of me...
