“Que Feo”—I am assuming the title of yesterday’s WOD was meant to give us a warning that it was NOT going to be pretty. Even so, I was not prepared for how I was going to feel for the WOD. Yesterday was day two of the Whole 30 challenge, and I must say it has been an adjustment period. I don’t say that its difficult because its a new diet or because I am not indulging in all the foods that I know are bad for me… I am saying it’s difficult because I am just now realizing how addicted my body became to coffee and redbull. I remember Rick telling us about the sugar dependencies that our bodies go through when we get so used to sugar induced highs. I didn’t think I was one of those people, but sure enough I am.
I was dizzy during yesterdays workout, and today my coworkers kept telling me I looked tired. These are two signs that kind of freaked me out. What was I thinking… depending on redbull to get me through the day. My family has a history of diabetes for goodness sake! Sugar… you are my new enemy!!
Yesterday we welcomed back an old Crossfitter that took a month and a half long hiatus… Similar to myself! One thing I have noticed is that people who truly believe in Crossfit will always come back. Whether it be for a vacation, a break from the gym or the holidays. When it’s time to come back to a workout regime… Crossfit is always the 1st pick! Amy came back yesterday and boy was she in for a doozy of a WOD. Here are the details:
Que Feo: 20 KB swings, 10 Clean &Jerks, 10 Back Squats, 10 Barbell hops, 20 AMRAP. Since I was so out of it due to my sugar cravings, I did not do the prescribed weight. I opted for 10 lbs less just to make sure I could go through the whole WOD. This left me at 55lbs for the clean and jerk and back squats and 25lbs for the kettle bell swings.
When you put it all together- I did 4 complete rounds. This ends up being, 80KB swings, 40 Clean and Jerks, 40 Back squats, and 40 barbell hops in 20 minutes. Not bad eh? After I caught my breath, I took a pick with Miss Amy to welcome her back to the pain cave Amy, I hope your ready for your upcoming burpee birthday!!!
As far as the Whole 30 challenge goes, I am still going strong. I prepared some delicious ground turkey mean, seasoned to perfection with some grilled zucchini, squash, onions and tomatoes. It came out fantastic!!! Day 2 down… 28 more to go!
