WOD x2!

Monday October 29th:

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps for time of
Sumo deadlift high pull 20lbs
Lateral jumps over 18'' obstacle

Oufff! Yesterday I did the WOD from CrossFit Mamas and it wasn't an easy one....I think I did a good time, but the lateral jumps weren't really over 18'' obstacle... I did my best: I jump over 12'' and did a little over so I guess it was enough, but might have taken me more than 9:13 minutes to do it!

Tuesday October 30rd:

Also from CrossFit Mamas:
For time:
Run 500m
30 bench 20 lbs
Run 1000m
20 bench 20 lbs
Run 2000m
10 bench 20 lbs

Since I don't have a treadmill and the temperature and light won't let me run outside after supper, I do it on the elliptical, even if it doesn't work the same way... anyway I'll post my result tonight or tomorrow!

I wasn't able to do it so... no time! :(

First CrossFit WOD!

I now follow CrossFit Mamas and today (Monday 10.22.12), was my very first time at the typical WOD:

From CrossFit Mamas WOD:

Complete as many rounds in 25 minutes as you can of:
7 Push-ups
11 Thrusters, 20 lbs
14 Knees to elbows

I did the ''girly'' push-ups, since I can't do the normal ones.
Knees to Elbows.... forget about it I wasn’t able to push them higher than my breasts! Anyway, overall, I did 11 rounds YAY!

I really liked this first WOD! Can't wait to see the WOD of tomorrow!

Granola Bars, my personal recipe!

This is my personal recipe for granola bars!

 If you want to make them Protein bars, just add 1 or 2 scoop of your favorite flavor protein powder.

1C. Almond Butter (I use the crunchy one) you can use Natural Peanut Butter (crunchy or not) or even normal Peanut Butter (crunchy or not) but this one will be more caloric.

1C. Smashed Pumpkin
3/4C. Honey

1/2C. Nuts (as you wish: I put pumpkin seeds, walnuts...)

1 T.s of each: Chia Seeds, Weat Germ smashed Flax Seeds (all optional)

1/4C. Shredded  Unsweetened Coconut

1/2C. Chocolat Chips (optional)

2-3C. Oats

Put the Almond or Peanut Butter 20sec in the microwaves.

Put all the ingredients together in a big bowl and mix well.

Put the mixture in a 9x13 pyrex plate, put in the oven for at least 25 min at 350 F (until it's golden on top)

Cross Fit 101 (#1) Done!

First day at Cross fit L.!
So far it was great; I had a lot of fun with my friend who came with me. I didn't expect to like it that much! And I didn't expect my friend to be that good either!

Since it was our first try, we did the Cross fit 101 course and now it HURTS! OMG and I thought I was in shape after doing the Insanity program!

Yeah!I have to confess that I didn't stretch before and after the workout, so the blame is on me! But it was fun and wow one hour has passed so quickly! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I'm eager to take my Cross fit 101 #2 and do some more squats!

LOL I can't even do the real push-ups...Because they go all the way down and I can't go back!!!! Well, someday I will, let the bitch out! LOL!

Also I started to follow this awesome blog : Cross Fit Mamas, I'm not a mama but the WOD sounds great, things you're able to do at home without to many equipment and other bloggers and followers, write theirs timing. I think it's interesting! I'll let you know!

Cross Fit and Pregnancy?

Love your body

Being able to look in the mirror and be satisfied with my body... this one is tough! I keep reminding myself not to push too hard (because I got easily injured) and be patient about the results, the progress, the transformation... I saw my mother last weekend and we were shopping... I hate shopping... And I thought: hey I did enough progress that my mother would notice... Hummm... Nop! Nothing, not even a word about a possible change in my aspect, body, mind and soul! Even when I said that I was eating Pumpkin Protein Bars, she didn't even ask me why!

Well, now I'm in that specific stage of my life and I need to take a decision: having a baby or not.

If I'm pregnant, yeah, I know you can continue to workout and there's a lot of good workout and training program for pregnant women, but all I am doing right now is for nothing? Because in shape or not, a pregnant woman isn't skinny, isn't in shape (at some point!). After a few months, no matter what, no matter how hard you working out and of course, you might stop the regular (or not) workout you're being doing and just be a pregnant woman?
Big and fat. Again. Then after the pregnancy, you'll have to do the entire workout again...

Mama! I gonna cry!

Am I doing this for nothing? Because obviously I’ll have to do it all over again after the baby's out... For the peace of my mind, body and soul! I not the kind of person who's going to lay all day on the couch, doing nothing because she's now a mommy... (and everybody knows that a mommy, do a lot of thing, so where am I going to find the time to train again. And training harder, with the baby, the house, cooking, family and friends who want to spend time with me and the baby!

I want a pizza...

Geez... Can we really do this when we are pregnant?

Well it's seems that we can! Ok never mind this whole post, I should stay in shape and do cross fit when I'm pregnant! YAY! No seriously, this picture is awesome and inspirational! Thank you, whoever you are! Oh: Heather Bergeron!?!?
