Since chilling out on the drinking, I've been so much happier. Even tonight, I had to ask the husband to finish my drink for me. Crazy, right? Who is this girl? I don't recognize her!
It was a delicious concotion: Orange Talking Rain (sparkling water, no calories), 1.5 oz of whisky, and a healthy amount of fresh lemon juice. Shake. Pour over ice. Lick your lips.
5-Star dining tonight! I know, it's hard to keep up with this level of class, folks.
A reader asked how I cook for my husband if I don't eat the same things he does, and tonight was a great example. I cook our meals 80% the same, with just a few small alterations to suit my marco needs. Like, the husband got a whole wheat bun, I had sautéed cabbage. He had ketchup, I had Sriracha sauce. He had 3 pieces of bacon, I had just one. :) I also piled mine crazy high with the most succulent grilled onions evaaaaa.
WOD's for the last two days have looked a little like this:
3 rounds for time:
50 double unders
20 dumb bell thrusters, 30# each hand
30 minutes Spin + WOD
brutal --> 100 push press at 55#
10 muscle ups (subbed 3 ring dips/3 pull ups = 1 muscle up)
It's only Wednesday, and I've hit two PR's this week!
I finally have my butterfly pullup. Check out this vid my girl Melissa caught.
Honest to God, I was really surprised they looked that smooth. They don't feel that smooth when you're up there on the bar. It kind of feels like a full body dry heave.
It's taken me a long time to get to this point. I wanted to butterfly so badly, since I first started CrossFit. I remember watching the Games last year and promising myself I would GET the butterfly kip. Not an easy feat for someone who couldn't even do a regular pullup at that time ...
(For some reason I can't figure out how to display the video on my page, so there it is on YouTube.)
And, I benched 130# this morning. 105% of my body weight, boom. Any lift at body weight or higher is a big deal to me. Since I just started benching though, and have never gone for a 1RM, I can't really dance around too much about this one. Next goal is 150#.
Have you hit any PR's this week? What are you waiting for? Go, go go!
