Day 17. Almost there.
So how was everyone's 4th of July? I really wish that would be an official holiday over here as well, along with all the festivities. (even if it's just for the sake of having an extra holiday)
I got 3 appointments at San Francisco CrossFit scheduled and confirmed today, and I'm all happy about it. I simply booked an 'Introduction to CrossFit' series; 3x 1 hour with a personal trainer, which they recommend when you're just starting out. I know I've already been doing CrossFit WODs a little longer now, but I'm still fairly new to it all and don't have enough experience to join in one of their group classes yet.
Training with a personal trainer will definitely benefit my technique for certain lifts and movements and, -bonus!- I get to ask a whole lot of questions and get them answered too. Not that I'm the annoying question asking kind of person, I simply like the fact that I could be.
This weekend I also realised I have a small problem.. I do not fit into some of my clothes anymore. Did I just get fat? No.. But the size of my arms and shoulders has definitely increased over the last few months. Meaning I no longer fit into certain tops, including my favourite fitted jacket.. (unless I stand up straight and don't move at all, which is next to impossible for me)
Does that mean there's a downside to CrossFit??
No!! It means I need to go shopping. What a shame...
Speaking of workouts, I just had another nice one!
3 rounds of 30 seconds of each exercise:
DB row / push ups / butterfly sit-ups / air squats
and then the WOD itself:
25 pull ups
21 thrusters (I used a 20kg barbell)
50 push ups
My time: 18.43 (and a pool of sweat..)
And this is what went into my stomach today:
Leftover roasted veggies, fritatta with kohlrabi leaves and broccoli stems, and some shredded chicken with coconut lime cream
2 beef burgers with stir-fried broccoli and butternut squash
Grilled trout with some roasted beets and stir-fried cabbage
Check out the teeth on this trout! I though it was really primal to serve it this way.
