A journey of purpose. One gal's search for a balanced life .
Things I’ve learned in the last week of workouts (6 days in a row, woot woot!):
Today I tried the 1st HIIT workout from my previous post (see here). Thanks, Genevieve!! I will be coming back to this one again to improve my time. Body weight stuff is always a challenge for me as I’m heavy, but I’ve got to start somewhere! Also, I’m still sticking to that Level 1 Crossfit challenge by Shanti (found here), today was day 6.
WOD 1: 2 rounds, 60 sec rest between, Total time=19:45
WOD 2: Total time=1:43
I did this in the comfort of my living room. Bonus: no equipment needed, and it’s a very short trip to an after workout meal :). I made a stir fry with brussel sprouts, baby bok choy, chicken breast, garlic/onions. Instead of oil I used veggie broth, and the chicken was pre-cooked so the whole thing took ~7 min to prepare.
I’m proud of myself for sticking to this healthy change for a solid week. When I tried to talk myself out of my workouts, I re-read my 1st post…my motivation is internal/intrinsic, I am accountable to me. Tomorrow is a much deserved “rest day,” but I’m planning on going dancing with some friends. Going to skip the EtOH, cos that’s counter-productive at this point in my journey, but I’m looking forward to getting dressed up!!
Have a happy weekend, all 🙂
