If not... hello and welcome. Who am I, I’m an average 39 year old mom with two kids and a sense of humor. Besides that, I’m in the best shape of my life, yes at 39. I started this fitness blog well, because I wanted to but mostly to keep track of my daily exercise, bad habits and nutrition to see how diet, sleep and stress are affecting my WODs and life in general. WOD for those of you who don’t know is a CrossFit term meaning "workout of the day". Get familiar with it because it will be a part of your life from now on.
I will be posting my WODs which will be lifted either from CrossFit BrandX or CrossFit King of Prussia. Sometimes I make them up as I go, but I don’t always have the mental capacity for that. I will also be posting my diet and maybe some recipes since my husband and I are pretty damn good cooks. We’ve recently, within the past 10 months, have gone Primal with a dab of Paleo on the side. Paleo is a way of eating that cuts out dairy, grains and sugar. It’s the best thing out there in terms of healthy eating. I just can’t get over my insane cheese addiction and go all the way. Primal is more meat and veggie based dishes in which we do allow ourselves the occasional slice of cheddar on the burger or a piece of pizza here and there.
Another reason I started this blog was to convince and inspire or slowly intimidate everyone into at least trying to live a healthier life. People, we are fat. Well, I'm not fat anymore but most of us are. In fact I think I saw an article the other day that 60% of us are overweight. More than half. That is not good. So with that I'll end my rant with my notes for the day.
Breakfast: whole grain bagel thin w/butter and almond butter. Coffee, coffee, coffee.
20 air squats
10- 15lb dumbbell lunges
