The Gym - where fat is burned, and pride is earned.  This is definitely true for me this week!  It seems like it's been one of the hardest weeks of workouts yet, but I'm sure that's not true, but man!  I have busted my butt EVERY day this week!  I know I didn't sound like it, but I was very proud of myself yesterday.  I was just so tired and STILL trying to catch my breath when I typed up my results yesterday.  You won't believe how long my face stayed red!  Honey-buns was like, "You need to take it easy and not push yourself so hard."  I just told him that was the whole point and besides...I DID IT!!  I'm still excited about that.  That last round of running came close to killing me, but I pushed through it.  If y'all could just hear the chatter that goes on in my head sometimes, you'd put me in the looney bin!  lol  Rob Zombie has become my go-to music for running and I am so glad that's what I had on my I-Pod yesterday. 

I completely forgot to mention this yesterday, but I had lunch with my niece's special needs class.  I haven't done that since January.  Anyway, her teacher came up to me and said "You look like you've lost weight!"  I was so excited to hear that!  I told her I haven't really lost a lot of weight, just a lot of inches (2 pants sizes so far) and she asked me what was I doing.  I told her about the CrossFit blog and she said she remembered me talking about it before.  It's always nice for your hard work to be noticed!

Thank goodness today's workout is NOT a run!!  I would have pushed through it, but JEEZ LOUISE!  I've ran 3 times this week already!  lol

CrossFit workout:
   As many rounds as you can in 20 minutes of:
      10 push-ups
      5 dead lifts w/40-60 lbs
      8 push press w/20 lbs

March Madness:
   15 squats
   11 burpees
   *extra for me* 15 sit-ups

I have realized the soreness in my sides/rib cage area is from burpees.  I guess since I'm doing them the "right" way now (as opposed to the "beginner" way), I'm using muscles in that area apparently.  I'm very pleased with my workouts this week!
UNBELIEVABLE!!  I set a goal of 16 rounds.  Well...I went 25 seconds over and did 20 rounds!!!  Crazy!!  I can't believe it!  The push-ups started killing me around round 11 - that's when I would have to stop and stretch it out before continuing on.  Dead-lifts and push-presses were easy, peasy.

ALL dead-lifts with 50 lbs and ALL push-presses with 24 lbs.  SO happy with myself - not only for today, but for this entire week.

AWESOME workouts!  I did not do the March Madness workout today, my arms and thighs cannot take anymore.  I also chose not to do sit-ups, but I'm okay with that as well.

Y'all have a great weekend.  It's going to be sunny and in the mid-60s here, so I can't wait to get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather!  :)
