To sum it up, it was a good exercise week and a bad diet week.
Here are my Fit Mommy goals with how I did this week:
Rest each night for at least 8 hours, hopefully undisturbed by the little tots. And even more importantly rest this week as needed to recover from my variety of ailments.
I miserably failed at this goal again. Getting just 5-7 hours most nights.
Daily Quiet Time and Prayer: I cannot be physically healthy without spiritual health. My goal is to spend at least 15 minutes each day reading the Bible and praying.
Some days I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, but prayer was easy. It always seems I have more than enough to pray about. Especially considering we almost added two foster care children to our home this week.
Drink more water: This is an area I really struggle. I’m going to start by trying to drink 40 oz of water each day. I know I have water intake from smoothies and juices, so this goal will just be for straight-up water consumption.
I completely forgot about this goal. I’m so bad about forgetting about goals. I guess its good I have this weekly reminder.
Eat 90% raw each day: I love the way eating raw makes me feel. I love the effects on my weight, my complexion, and my energy levels. I just started a 30 day raw challenge for myself. After 30 days, I may want to reevaluate where I am, but for now my goal is 90% raw each day.
Miserable failed at this goal. I ate 90% raw maybe 2 days this week. One day I ate 0% raw. One night I had 5 oz of milk before going to bed … which caused me to wake up sneezing at 3 am in the morning, congested and my nose literally dripped incessantly the entire next day. I was miserable for 1 day. Now I just have to remember not to do that again.
Crossfit 3 times a week: I love my local Crossfit. I love that they have an exercise plan set out for me each day. I love how challenging it is. I love that I always feels so great afterwards and know that I really accomplished something. I love that I’m getting stronger and leaner.
Check. Crossfit was hard this week.
- Monday – AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) in 20 minutes of: 10 overhead lunges with 65lb bar (women’s weight), 10 double pump burpees, 200 meter run. I did 4 rounds.
- Wednesday – GRACE – 95lb clean and jerks for 30 reps as fast as possible. I ended up having to lower the weight to 75lbs to finish. It took me about 11 minutes.
- Friday – FRAN, which has a tendency to beat the crap out of you – 65lb thrusters followed by pullups, reps are 21-15-9 – it took me a little over 13 minutes. And another important note, I used a green band for the pull ups.
I am continuing a 100 day burpee challenge! I’m on day 8. You do just 1 burpee today, 2 tomorrow, and increase it by one each day until you get to 100. If you aren’t sure how to do a burpee, check out this website for pictures and instructions.
Exercise 1 time a week at home: Squeeze in either a travel workout or other workout from my house.
Other personal goals: Here are two other goals that I hope I can meet soon. Complete a Crossfit workout prescribed (which is where you complete the entire workout at the prescribed weight or activity level…so no scaling to make it easier), and complete 10 men’s pushup without stopping.
I did 10 men’s push ups this week without stopping for a break!!! Yeah, goal met. My new goal is to do 20 in a row.
