2011 here we come!

Hey friends!! hope everyone is fully recovered from the holiday hustle! Anyone find any amazing after Christmas sales? Or did you just play cool like me and avoid the stores at all cost?

Today was an early morning for us all! We had a big storm blow in last night and it was loud!! B woke up about 2:30 am because of the wind and ended up snuggling with me and the mr. until my alarm went off at 4:30am to get up for an early morning swim with the GPP fishes.

I came home after an hour swim and snuggled with my babies in bed for an hour or so before getting them ready to head back to gym to get the WOD done.

Three rounds of:
1 min row (count calories)
1 min thrusters 45/65 (count reps)
1 min box jumps (count reps)
1 min KB swings 35/53 (count reps)
1 min OH DB press 15/20 ea. (count reps)
Rest 1 min between each round.  
The clock does NOT stop between exercises. 
Count total reps - add to total calories (from rowers) and post total to comments.   
My total was 407! 

 GOOD WORKOUT today! I felt really good, considering the amount of sleep I got.. or lack there of.  But I took it for all it was worth.
Pre-Workout swim: was a half banana with AB. NO Pic.. I'm just going to admit.. It was to early to even care about finding a camera..

Post Swim
Oats! of course!

1/2 cup of oats. Cook in microwave for one minute
half scoop of protein vanilla whey, 
1 tbs of ground flax seeds 
and top with almonds
then I finished the rest of that banana.

Post workout #2
Protein shake on the rocks.
1.5 scoop of chocolate elite whey 
mixed with water 
3 ice cubes.

Yesterday, The WOD was something I need to improve..

embarrasing... I know..;)

Then it was time for a run.. I ended up on the dreadmill... Had a hard time getting going but after a little bit I was feeling pretty good.
Slower then I would like but I wasn't feelin the run. especially on the dreadmill.

As 2011approaches, do you have any new years resolutions in mind? The gym I go to is having a 6 week challenge starting soon. Check it out here. If you want to come try it, I have a coupon for half off your first month! Just email me if your interested! If your out of state, I'm sorry.. just move to utah. k?
