Goodbye 2012…Hello 2013!

3 Jan

Yes, I’ve disappeared for a few months.  I wanted to disconnect a bit because I was spending too much time on social media and not focusing more of my time on more important things.  For example, blogging took my time away from focusing on work and trying to better my career.

Nothing has changed much in my life.  I’m still super busy with the kids, busy at work, still lovin” CrossFit, still eating clean(except for December), and still trying to reach my fitness goals.  I’m gaining strength and enjoying my workouts.  I don’t really run much anymore, but lately I’ve been missing it.  Physique wise, I’m not completely there yet, but I will be.  I’m hoping I won’t need to focus on it so much, and just put all my energy towards my strength goals.  Then the physique part will come with it.  I HAVE TO STAY CONSISTENT and STICK WITH THE PLAN.  I can’t let temptation get the best of me.  And yes, I’m talking about food. I love eating clean because it makes my body feel good, and I feel horrible when I don’t eat clean. Staying focused and in control is the only way I’ll succeed.

I’ve learned so much in 2012 in regards to nutrition and fitness, especially since I worked with a couple nutrition coaches.  Everyone’s body is so different, and honestly, you just gotta find what works for you.  Lots of experiments and patience.  Patience is key, and I’m hoping patience will also get me to where I want to be in 2013.

08/27/2012 – Kb Snatches

29 Aug

Yes, I’m definitely behind in posts, and I don’t even remember what we did. Oh yes, you can read what we did here at Fitbomb’s page.

For the kettlebell snatches, I used the 12KG and 16KG bell.

For our WOD, I had the most trouble with the HSPUs. I’m doing them on a band, and it really f’ed up my back. I wasn’t hollowing out my back enough and placing my hands where they need to be.

I think my time was 10:31.

08/25 and 08/26 – Weekend Good Eats

26 Aug

Here’s some food that I ate two weeks ago! I went to a baby shower at a Nail Salon. We got to relax, get our nails did, and enjoy GF time. Love my girls.

I didn’t take many pics of what I ate. I just remember I ate clean except for the alcohol that I consumed at the shower. 🙂

08/24/2102 – Good Eats

26 Aug

Since my workout wasn’t very strength intensive, I decided to eat my low carb meals instead. Unfortunately, once I got to my desk I was busy off the bat and couldn’t eat anything. I went to Dish Dash for lunch and got a chicken Mediterranean salad. It was delicious and exactly what I needed.

Around 3, I had some steak and braised kale.

For dinner, I broiled some salmon with gravy and green beans. There’s some chicken on the plate but that was for lil’ munchkin’

08/23/2012 – Good Eats

24 Aug

I started off with a 45 minute walk uphill on the treadmill. Within the walk, I had a 10 minute uphill sprint. 30 sec on, 45 sec off x8. Killer.

Eggs, cauliflower rice, and steak. Best breakfast ever, but still hungry!

Ate again around 10:30. Ground beef with cauliflower.

I almost skipped out of YOGA, but I’m so glad I went. Felt good, but hurt too. Shoulders are super super tight. It was a great time to relax, unwind, and take a nap.

Mid-afternoon snack was some chicken breast, 3 strips of sirloin and cabbage. I got home and had 2 Paleo Stix.

Dinner was salmon with braised kale and carrots. I didn’t eat all the salmon or the chicken beneath it. Chicken was for lil’ AMRAP. Ended the night with 1oz of macadamia nuts. Almost ate more, but went upstairs to go to bed instead. PHEW!

23 Aug

Since I’m behind on blogging my eats, let’s just do a recap in pictures because I don’t think I had anything extra today. 🙂 That means it was a good day.

This is sauerkraut, if you don’t know!

20120823-065742.jpg

Oooh, during lunch we had a BBQ so I can fatty ribs and chicken. Plus a side of fruit. The ribs were small, chicken was small…BORING BBQ. Still hungry!

Steak and veggies

Chicken breast and veggies. Yes, it’s on a superman plate because I was sharing with Lil’ Munchkin’.
