What's my secret?  Oh...I'm glad you asked.  It's this awesome new diet pill called "Get the hell up and work your ass off every damn day!"  I love sarcastic humor.  Can  you tell?  lol

I have to say, I am disappointed with my workout yesterday.  I always feel bad when I don't do all that I'm supposed to or - like yesterday - when I have to cut the workout short due to time constraints.  I don't know why I didn't think of this (my wack-a-doo brain, do doubt!) but I could have rode my stationary bike instead of doing some of the running.  This popped into my head last night while I was soaking in my bubble bath.  Hopefully, I'll remember it the next time!

Today's CrossFit workout is the exact same as what we did this past Friday (3/8) - not sure what's up with that.  Anyway, instead of doing that one again (I'm not sure I'd improve on my rounds anyway - I was very happy with 20!!), I'm going back to the very first CrossFit workout I did on September 24, 2012.  You know...just for shits and giggles!  I also plan to run a mile today to make up for the last one that I didn't do yesterday.  Today is supposed to be a rest day for March Madness, but I'm going to do Monday's workout (it has the most reps) to try to make up for some that I missed.

CrossFit workout from 9/24/12:
   25 situps
   1 pullup
   20 situps
   2 pullups
   15 situps
   3 pullups
   10 situps
   4 pullups
   5 situps
   5 pullups

Looking back on my blog, Jenni had said you could substitute pushups for the pullups, but I'm actually going to do the pullups today, and NOT the reverse ones either - real ones...with a bar and everything!  lol   -   My time on 9/24 was 5:25, but apparently I didn't do "real" situps, but crunches instead.  I remember those days - not being able to do a situp, much less a CrossFit situp.  My time may be worse today, but at least I'll know I'm doing things I couldn't do before - "real" situps and pullups!

March Madness:
   Rest day, but I'm doing this:
      20 squats
      17 burpees

Looks like I've created myself a nice little workout once you tack on my 1 mile run I'm doing.  :)
I'm impressed!  I not only knocked 10 seconds off of my time (thank you, very much!), BUT I did it doing "real" CrossFit situps and pullups.  Granted, I did not do the jump up/slow down pullup, nor did I do "assisted on a chair" pullup.  I actually tried to do for real, actual pullups AND am happy to say I could go up 2 inches!  Progress!  It's not much, but I'll take it.  My arms actually bent - I think that's the first time ever for pullups without assistance!  :)

It's crazy to think that in just a little over 5 minutes I just did 75 CrossFit situps (not crunches!) and 15 un-assisted partial pullups.  That sounds like a good name for them, doesn't it?  I think I'll use that from now on!

I also did Monday's March Madness workout which was 20 squats and 17 burpees, and let me tell you...burpees get my heart rate going big time!

I did not run today because I was side-tracked by the Pope on t.v.  I was watching the coverage - I just love the history behind all of that! - and looked up and it was 3:45.  I told Honey-Buns I needed to hurry up and go work out.  His response was, "I was wondering when you going to get up."  Hello?  You could have reminded me of the time!  lol  MEN!

Can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store.  :)
