30 before 30 – Update 2
It’s 7 days into 2014 … and 7 days in to my new LIFE.
I’ve adopted the Weight Watchers platform – point values for all of the food I eat, a suggested number of points per day – and, I think, I have succeeded so far. I’m finding it REALLY hard to balance my points throughout the day. Specifically, I’m finding that after supper I still have a lunch worth of points left…. what gives?
I’m sure I’ll find ways to sneak in an extra banana or a piece of bread at some point. Or maybe I’ll treat myself to a cup of froyo. #YOLO.
Tuesday night was my first OnRamp session at Fundy CrossFit. After a year of listening to friends and relatives talking (non-stop) about it and after a successful #30in30 giveaway/blog post/gym visit – I was intrigued.
OnRamp is a 6 session intro to CrossFit that gives almost one on one coaching through the movements and activities involved in the program. Tonight we went through the stretches done at the beginning of each class, proper squat form and set a benchmark for squatting going forward. I am a weak baby, so I wasn’t shocked to see that my squat weight was well below what I thought I could handle. I think that my “form” (for lack of a better word) needs a little work.
The hardest part of the into CrossFit class was the workout – as many sets of 10 squats and 5 pushups as possible in a 5 minute period. Oh my word. What a challenge. My upper body is lacking and that was painfully and hilariously obvious while trying to do the pushups.
I have 5 OnRamp classes left and then I’ve signed on for a month (!!!!) of ACTUAL CrossFit.
Wish me luck! See you soon!
