And why do I hate her so much?
After eating more carbs this weekend than I had in the previous 2 months combined (not a complaint, just a fact), it was necessary to start Monday morning off well!
Then sat down to check out what CrossFit had in store for me this morning. Apparently the answer was Jenna?!
All I can say is that this was the HARDEST WORKOUT EVER (and I didn’t even do the Px weight). I don’t even know the last time that I did a dead lift, and I was worried that I would hurt my back. But we did a lot of practice and warm up without any weight before practicing with weight. In the end, I decided to go with 85 pounds. The Manmakers were an entirely different story. I didn’t feel anything like a man, just like a baby who wanted to cry.
A Manmaker starts in the pushup position holding onto two dumbbells.
One rep goes as follows…
14 reps took up the majority of my time and I used 20 pound weights. I definitely didn’t get my chest down to the ground on every push up and my heart was beating out of my chest. Somehow I finished just shy of the 20 minute max in 18:30. It was brutal! And I was super sweaty when I was done!
Not too sweaty to make a quick stop by Target to pick up some colorful socks for the Shamrock Shuffle next month. Then, I swung back home to pick up the BOY for lunch and errands…our typical Monday activities!
We went to Jason’s Deli for soups, sandwiches, and salads.
And of course, the free ice cream!
We had some major shopping to do at Costco, and our car was packed by the time we pulled back into the driveway.
After a cold and icy morning, we were both thrilled to be back home in our warm house!
And I needed to rest my exhausted body on the couch while I caught up on Grey’s Anatomy!
