So about 2 weeks ago, I met with a trainer who does all crossfit training.. I've been dabbling with learning the crossfit stuff for about a year, a friend is big into it. Well, I've been reading the website, but its so confusing to me, so I met with Van, and he explained some basics. After practicing the basics, I finally did my first 5x4 workout today! The sweat was unbelievable and I hit an all time heart rate (167), and I didn't get dizzy, which is great for me!
I still see my strength trainer and we do arms and legs on Fridays. I'm feeling really strong, and this is my 3rd week paleo. I did have some alcohol last week, and that seemed to stall me. I also worked LONG hours in San Diego, and didn't have any time to work out much.
However, I was pretty proud of myself in that I really did well with my eating plan, I think.. I kept a bag of nuts in my purse when I was hungry, and when we had sandwiches, I removed the bread and only at the insides. I did have one small piece of bread that came with my salad at one restaurant and we did have a few drinks 2 nights, but other than that, I did really great.
Going to try to update more often and put in my workouts, so I can keep track of the different wods i've done.
