Day 30 Paleo Challenge
Started my morning off with a feeling of ass, started to look for a cold remedy, and found that most over the counter syrups contain sucralose, so I bought some Nyquil and Dayquil gel caps.
While sitting in the bitch chair yesterday, aka the Managers seat at one of my locations, I was reflecting on my weekend workouts. Saturday we did a 15 minute AMRAP, which I did as prescribed. It was 9 dead lifts at 155 lbs, 12 hand release push-ups, and 15 box jumps at 24”. It was one of those days where when I finished I felt fucking awesome because I had “A” done the worked as prescribed, and “B” performed on a level which was right at the middle of the pack for Rx’ed work.
Then Sunday mornings WoD took a brother suffering from WoD and knocked him the fuck out. It involved pull-ups which I suck at, sit-ups which I am ok with, and double unders which I have no rhythm for, so doing double the number of running men is a blow to the fragile CrossFit ego.
Oh I desperately want to be able to pull-up my fat body without assistance. Towards the end of the WoD I felt as uncoordinated as a baby hippo trying to fuck a donkey. I don’t know why a hippo would want to fuck a donkey, but if one did it would look like my trying to do 12 pull-ups with two bands during the fifth round of a WoD.
Deliberate practice…I am choosing to work on the areas I am weakest, and attempting to improve my performance, and measure my work through measurable units.
Being the neurotic Asian that I am, I’ve charted my performance in the power lifts and Olympic lifts. Because some of the movements are done in non-consecutive weeks I condensed the data into three periods of time. I’ve charted my maximum weight per session, as often times caution has me start at the same lower weights during each session.
In terms of improvement, most of my lifts have improved, as have my metcons. I am not down the “weight” that I want, but I feel stronger, so I got that going for me.
I’m done, my brain isn’t quite functional, sometimes I feel better, sometimes I feel worse, what I do have to do is get better so I can take my title on Saturday…check please!
Why weight loss sucks…
This message thread is just a snippet of what information is out there about the right ways to lose or gain weight, it should give those who have never struggle with their weight how frustrating it can be in terms of filtering the information that is out there, further I am comparing myself to a 33 year old 5'4" woman, who I'm sure could OHS more than me. If you don't know what an OHS it's better for me that you don't know.
