Nutrition Challenge
Well the end of week 4 of the Whole30 nutrition challenge has come and today was supposed to be “weigh-in” day, but the lady who does the screening was sick so it’ll have to wait for a few more days. Looks like I’ll be having sweet potatoes for breakfast a little bit longer 🙂
The post-challenge physical benchmark testing is tomorrow & the screening is set for Tuesday evening so hopefully I’ll know my results by then.
I’m thinking of extending the Whole30 for another cycle with some friends from my gym & see what it brings!
If you’re interested in joining let me know!!
Life
This week was a little out of the ordinary due to the holiday, so I was able to relax a bit more & work less!
Things will probably be getting hectic soon at Fashletics, since “boss lady” will be out of town at the CrossFit Games that are happening this upcoming weekend. I just hope I don’t go in one day and Alex & I see that there’s like 500 orders. Haha. While it’s awesome for business, that would be insane.
Only 3 more weeks of summer school & then I get a “break” for a month!!! We had to watch a movie called Lord of War with Nicolas Cage. Very interesting & recommended.
I also have entered the “Summer of the YES!” which basically is a thing between my friends & me where we do things that we normally would’ve said, “I’d never do that!”
Some things will be shared here and some things won’t. 😉
It will basically entail dating & my journey away from Team Single, adventures, spur of the “momentness”, & living life to the fullest!
Should be a fun ride 🙂
A year ago today I decided to cut off all my hair and start “new”. I remember when it was SUPER short and I could barely grab any hair, now it’s a mini-fro and when it’s stretched it reaches down to my eye!

Training
Friday & Saturday were HEAVY volume days!
Friday:
• Clean & Jerk skill work building up from 53lbs to 113lbs, working on getting under the bar and my split jerk. I felt less awkward with the clean so that’s good, the squat is easy for me, the jerk just needs practice.
•WOD:
5 rounds for time of:
9 DB Hang Squat Cleans
200m run with 40lb sandbag
12 Handstand Pushups
305 Challenge:
We had a little challenge at the box for the fastest partner 5K row switching every 500m with a free t-shirt as the prize!
Brings me back to the ol’ glory days….haha. But yeah the competitive energy was flowing and so after the workout I did the challenge too. I was constantly checking the online scoreboard to see the results….Luckily our scores held up and we won for the fastest mixed team @ 305!! Yeah buddy T-shirts!!! LOL
Needless to say after all that I crashed on the couch and barely moved.
Saturday:
• Lifting
Snatch: skill work/progression
I’m working on keeping the bar close to my body and getting a full hip extension & again getting under the bar.
This movement is still new to me so I go light working from 43lbs and up in increments of 5’s.
Front Squats: I’m a lot stronger here just b/c I’ve put more time into it. Goal was to do 4 sets of 4; started at 110 and went up in 20lb increments. I got to rep 2 @ 170 & decided to rack it. Another day!
• WOD: partner 3 min AMRAP of:
Pull ups
Then 1 min rest
Deadlifts (225/185)
Then 1 min rest
Prowler sled push with 90lbs.
• Midline: Hollow rocks and rocking supermans.
Needless to say Sunday rest day was well earned. I thought I would be a lot more sore but I feel good!
Well things will be getting back to “normal” slightly this week, so I’ll see how my energy levels hold up.
Until next time,
Grind Hard Live Fit
