I have not sewn anything at home since getting back from our house packing trip. I basted 17 hexies while driving around Calgary.. but that is the only semi-productive crafting time I have had.
Now it is probably time to admit a few things that I am not proud of from the last few weeks. I have been craving chocolate (which is what I do when I am stressed, and moving stresses me out big time). Cravings aren't so bad if you can manage them in a positive way, like 1 square of dark chocolate after dinner, but I have been caving and eating donuts, cupcakes and brownies. I know that it is not helping me get to my goals and when I am done the eating the chocolate I kind of feel like slapping myself for not being more focused.
Here what I have been doing fitness wise for the last week and bit since getting back from the packing trip.
End of week 10 and week 11 Fitness
May1: Getting back into the swing of things. 30 minute online pilates.
May2: Walk to CrossFit and back pushing both kids in my good double stroller. CrossFit: Strenght; Sumo Deadlifts. 85% at 5x3 reps. I wasn't paying enough attention to what I was doing and did: 85lbs 4x5reps. WOD: 10 minute AMRAP (as many reps as possible) of 5 push press, 7 hang cleans, 9 deadlifts. Completed: 5 rounds. I am over thinking power cleans/hang cleans/etc, and keep not getting it right. I know what the movement should be, and I can't seem to make my body do it. It is pretty frustrating.
May3: Walked to CrossFit pushing both kids in the big stroller. Babysat. Walked home.
May4-5: Took kiddos to Calgary so we could find a house to live in. Does packing the truck count as exercise?
May6: CrossFit: Test for 1 Rep Max Back Squat. 135lbs. Max sit-ups (cap at 50): 50!!! Max push-ups: 22. WOD: Tabata: (8 rounds of each exercise: each round is 20 seconds, 10 second rest): squats, burpees, hollow rocks, push-ups. Completed: 88 squats, 24 burpees, 70 hollow rocks, 51 push-ups.
May7:Walk at off-leash area with kiddos, grandma, and dogs.
May8: CrossFit: Strength: Rack Jerk 85% 5 by 3 reps. 75lbs. WOD: 21-15-9 reps of deadlifts and box jumps. Deadlifts at 65lbs, stepups on 12inch box completed in 4:38.
And now its time for the weigh in. As of May 2, these are the numbers:
My weight 232 lbs (down 4 lbs since March 31, total 10 lbs lost)
Chest: 36 inches (no change from March 31, down 1 inch total)
Waist: 39 inches (down 2 inches from March 31, down 3 inches total)
Hips: 50 inches (down 0.5 inches from March 31, down 1 inch total)
And Photos... but I will admit is it not a good comparison to see my baggy clothes and my gym clothes side by side (and normally Monkey is wearing pants, but not while I was taking photos today).
I have loved hearing your words of encouragement and thank you for reading, blogging is keep me more accountable to myself (other than the chocolate cake/donuts over the last few weeks).
