Stronger than Yesterday

Nutrition Challenge Results:
Ok so I’ve officially completed the Whole30 Nutrition challenge and below is a look at my results! Going into the final weigh-in I was kind of nervous and felt like a contestant on the biggest loser…hahaha (side-note: I hate that show)
I joked around that I was doing a last chance workout at the office by tap dancing, LOL. It definitely burned atleast 1 calorie!!
Anywho, all jokes aside I was pretty happy with my results and as I’ve stated all along with the challenge my biggest moments were when I started to feel like “Me” again!
I’ve decided to support some friends who wanted to do the challenge for another 30 days, so I’m still in sugar, grain, & dairy rehab until August 10th.
We have started our own blog at 30daystogorgeous.wordpress.com

Gym
Ok so the fist bump of the week for me comes from today’s workout which was a lovely couplet!

WOD: Rope n Run
1600m run
4 rope climbs – 18ft mark
1200m run
3 rope climbs
800m run
2 rope climbs
400m run
1 rope climb

Ok so I’ve only been doing Crossfit WOD’s at an affiliate for 8 weeks and today was a HOORAH moment for me!
I can remember the day when I was sitting, watching other classes climb the rope with ease. I can also remember the day I tried to climb survive the rope and just ended up holding on for dear life and flailing awkwardly. I can also remember the time I had to scale the workout to the 10ft mark because I got tired so quick and didn’t want to risk plummeting to the ground! Then I started to string together 1-2 climbs to higher marks, 12ft & 15ft. Even here it was quite the challenge for me to do consecutive climbs. So to be where I am today, climbing consecutively to the 18 ft mark is much more than HOORAH it’s a HELL YEAH!!!
By the time of the last climb I scurried up the rope so fast I shocked myself!

So this type of performance progression combined with my physical changes are what keeps me motivated to be STRONGER THAN YESTERDAY!!

Until next time,
