Back at the box for the first time in… 3 weeks?-ish tomorrow, and T - one week until 6 Week Challenge at Crossfit. Searching out some inspiration in tumblr-land to start getting psyched up.
Also I started stocking my paleo pantry today and thought I’d share the following:
- Sunbutter coupon, print as many times as you like, good through October (save $1)
- Almond Breeze almond milk coupon (save $1 off 2)
- and since ^that one is a manufacturer’s coupon, you should be able to combine it with the one Whole Foods is offering right now (aseptic only) if you shop there
- Maranatha Nut Butters (save $1)
AAAAAND: Completed Day 2 of the Active.com beginner Half Marathon plan. Woop!
Tonight: Some Shiva before bed :)
On the one hand, I feel like it’s been forever since I started the Paleo Challenge (again) on 1/1 with my CF box. On the other, it seems too short, considering the changes I’m seeing/feeling (again).
Like the first time, my face and neck almost instantly seemed less bloated, my clothes aren’t as…
Reminding me some of the things I have to look forward to.
My fitness and wellness goals are to be leaner, meaner, faster and stronger, and contribute to the meta-goal: a long, happy, successful life.
there is that part of me that thinks the best way to celebrate success will be wearing a ridiculous sparkly minidress, with gorgeous shoes that make me 6’3”.
And I’m not going to feel guilty that sometimes I motivate to go to the gym or for a run by picturing myself in that dress and those shoes, walking by people who will be completely awestruck by the beauty of my quads :) .
Despite trying to psych myself up yesterday morning, didn’t get to CrossFit yesterday. However, DID stay on track food-wise :). Didn’t drown my sorrows in peanut butter or chocolate or something, and only had one glass of wine (staying within calorie goal).
This morning I had a crappy crappy crappy CrossFit workout. I just felt like I had NO energy. None. I felt like napping, not shittily doing box jumps. I couldn’t string more than 5 of any exercise together, and only got 4 of 5 rounds within the 30 minute cutoff, despite the significant mods.
In the end, I still made it there. So that counts for something.
Now, I had sort of resigned myself to feeling like a loser for the day. That today sucked- the end. BUT, I have a dashboard full of pictures and sayings that have convinced me that it’s not too dark yet, and I can totally get off my ass and go for some sort of run. And then do yoga, which will be a great mental cleanse to then enjoy my evening and stop wallowing. Going. Now.
