Almost the weekend again. And I couldn’t be more excited :).
We got let out a little early from work tonight, which is always SO nice. Especially on our late days. Thank you, Halloween!
Dinner tonight was a repeat of Monday nights dinner:
A layered bowl dish.
Greens dressed with lemon juice and sriracha. Topped with a quinoa served with hazelnuts and dried fruit, and roasted broccoli, onions and chicken. All dressed in a peanut dressing.
Delish and could not be more simple.
My New Obsession
I spoke to you all both pre and post race about how I wanted to shift my focus a little bit after having trained for so many months between my two halves.
I have big racing goals for my future, but I find that it is important to BALANCE my life in every element, including exercise.
This afternoon I was feeling a little blah. WARNING GIRLY MOMENT: I was having a bit of a fat day…and just couldn’t shake off this feeling of general BLAH.
I was speaking to my neighbors last night about Crossfit and different WODs (Work out of the day). They have always said I’d love it, but last night I got really excited about the potential. Now I fully understand that it is a HUGE financial investment, and one that I am not ready yet to take. BUT, they told me you can find all kinds of WODs and work outs online. So this afternoon, feeling blah, I did just that.
I found this website, website that had 100 travel WOD’s on it. WIthin a minute, I was inspired to try one during my lunch.
I went on a quick walk, to get some fresh air, and then completed my first, easy in comparison, WOD.
6 reps of for time
- 10 sit ups
- 10 push ups
- 10 squats
Sounds easy enough, right?
Well I finished a little sweaty and feeling a hundred times better about myself.
Afterwords, I tweeted about the difference a quick workout can make in our overall sense of self and wellbeing.
The first thing I did after my break was look into other WODs I could easily do from home. And of course, after walking the dog and prepping dinner, I just HAD to try another.
10 reps for time:
- 10 burpees
- 10 sit ups
Phew. This one got me, but in all the best ways. I have a feeling these little work outs are going to become regular in my routine. There are also a ton of running incorporated WODs, which you know I am excited about trying ASAP!
Alright guys, time to sit down with a movie and eat that Halloween candy that I have resisted all day. I have some time to make up for here 😉
Question of the Night: Ever tried a WOD or been interested in trying?
