I have decided to cross-fit with the boyfriend a few days a week in addition to running to jump start my new years work out routine. I am not sure what the split will be but I figure it will work itself out. Today’s work out was a doozy. It took about 15 minutes to get through the movements and then we jogged to let Sasha out and back to work, it’s a little over a mile round trip!This was a tough one but I am glad I did it! The jumping rope was the hardest for me, counting to 300 takes foreverrrr. Also I was doing the whole double baby hop in between the big jump to get the rope under me so my calves were on fire. At first I thought it was the lazy mans route to jumping rope but quickly realized it just burned my legs. The last 30 I managed to do at a fast pace and no hops in between.
Lunch today is my last serving of chili. I’m sad to see it gone so soon, but I do have the awesome chicken crock pot stoup waiting at home for me so I think I’ll live! It has been a successful day 2 of 2013 when it comes to eating so far. I had an apple with breakfast, a banana pre gym, and now about to devour an orange for dessert post lunch. I am going to go out on a limb here and say I don’t think for my paleo needs I could be eating any better!
Q: If you only have a short time at the gym do you opt for a cardio machine, circuit work out, or weights session? Why?
