I feel like I have a rather laid back approach when it comes to food and fitness. As in, anything goes as long as I am having fun and that everything tastes good!
We started off the workout with two warm-up miles in the neighborhood around the track. After a quick water break we headed to the track for the following workout. 1 mile around the track where we did .25 miles of intervals where we alternated between speeding up or slowing down.
It was hard and I probably would have never done that on my own. But I knew that it would make be a better runner so I just did it.
I spent the majority of my Friday eating some goodies from Trader Joe’s.
Eggplant Naan Pizza with Feta Cheese.
Veggie chili and cheese with some tortilla chips.
I ended up walking around a few times and I turned off the RunKeeper app so I could use the GPS on my phone so that I could navigate my way back to the car.
I think I did cover 5 miles but it was one of the more frustrating runs I have done . I should have just gotten up early to run with the rest of the group.
To make matters worse, since I spent so much time being lost- I had to show up to work in my sweaty running clothes. I am sure my co-workers/clients were THRILLED.
So for the past few months or so I have been enjoying a chai tea latte from Starbucks. I honestly get it because it’s warm and I work next to The Bucks.
Little did I know, that I was consuming about 500 calories in one go. I don’t have a problem with the drink being so high in caloric value-but it’s a bit too much for a daily treat.
He brought back a fake Italian accent, pasta, pesto, chocolate and scarves for my mom, sister and I.
Yesterday, (Tuesday) I tried something that I honestly thought I would never do. I went to my first basic CrossFit class. Last month, my friends and I bought an deal for 30 days of unlimited CrossFit classes.
And I am pretty sure I enjoyed the workout. Don’t worry this is not going to become one of those CrossFit blogs.
As we waited for the basic class to start- we were able to checkout one of the more advanced classes and truthfully it is a bit terrifying watching people throw down heavy weights and follow it up with a head stand.
Like that can’t be normal.
I will say this the entire workout was fun, I felt like I could do things and my own pace and I did not feel pressured to do anything that I was not comfortable with.
For instance, I did not feel comfortable doing a box jump so I just did a step up. The hardest part was remembering how many rounds I had completed.
The actual workout was 15 minutes. The other 45 minutes of the class were spent watching demos and going over the skills of the moves, which was actually helpful.
I was dripping with sweat after those 15 minutes. And I am pretty sure I am going back for another class.
We followed up CrossFit with some Mexican food, I got my usual favorites from Azul 17.
Have you ever tried CrossFit? Do you have a special workout plan or do you just find fun/random things to do?
