WOD for 4-2-2009
WOD #1 with Mel and Linda:
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 weighted squats
Squat Cleans with Mel
So, I had planned a different workout for my first workout yesterday, but Mel changed it up. So, I will pull that out later. But the first workout is what the competitors will be doing this weekend at the Fittest Games. (Well, they will be doing 4 rounds, but this was just to get a feel for it). It wasn't horrible, but it was a workout. I was feeling it! For the pull ups, Green band, and worked on getting chest to bar, not just chin to bar. And for the squats, I just did 45#. We didn't time it, but Mel and Linda finished at about 12 minutes, and I think I was about 2 minutes after that. So, around 14 minutes, not too bad.
For the Squat cleans, I was just working on form. I started out going to do 4 sets of 5, and then ended up adding more on at the end. I did 3 sets at 45# with little difficulty (form wise, weight wasn't bad). I added 5 more pounds, and ended up rounding out my back. So, Bobby and Pat helped me out. Bobby made a really good correction, or at least I think it will help me. When I get in the bottom position, I start to bend forward and this is where my back begins to round. So, in order to correct this, I need to either start looking upwards or look down but adjust my focus to further up. I did the second option, and wow....even that little improvement made such a huge difference. The lift didn't seem as hard.
Diet for yesterday:
Not sure that I really want to talk about what I ate yesterday, because it was not good....but being that I do record what I eat, I will....
Breakfast: Egg white omelet, 4 pieces of bacon
Lunch: 5 baked chicken strips, 7 almonds
Dinner: Chicken Gyro Sandwich and 2 alcoholic drinks
Snack: strawberries......and 1 amazingly delicious cupcake.
Total Water Intake: 1.5L
So, lets tackle the really bad thing that I ate yesterday....the cupcake. My friend Amber at work made me "Congrats for getting into Nursing School" cupcakes. So, I HAD to eat the cupcake. I didn't have a choice....lol. She did tell me that she thought about making cake, but she was like "I knew you would eat "this" (a bite) much and I wanted you to eat more and enjoy it, so I made cupcakes". And then the Gyro Sandwich....mmm...it was yummy! I went to Stratos with my friends. Amber was belly dancing, and so a few of us go and watch her. The alcohol....well, I wanted some. No excuses for it, I just wanted to. I will make up for my diet yesterday today.
