All Systems Reboot – #Mamavation Monday

It’s time to reboot! I finished up the Paleo Challenge  and if you want to see the results you can click on that hyperlink. Barbells for Boobs is OVER! If you would like to read how Crossfit honors breast cancer awareness you can check out my post on the Grace WOD. As soon as the Paleo challenge was over it was like an eating free for all. I ate cupcakes, waffles, pizza, cinnamon bread, ice cream, popcorn OH MY! I felt like total crap! I would pass out without warning and my energy level was just low and my stomach hurt. You would think that would be enough to get back on track but it wasn’t. When I got on the scale and saw an increase I was not surprised. It doesn’t take a whole lot of bad eating to kick you back up on the scale. I’m trying to reach a goal and I know that what I’m eating isn’t helping me get there Paleo or NOT.

It’s time to reboot my system. I’m not going to hit my goals if I keep loading up full of junk! It’s not good for me and it doesn’t make me feel good at all. Honestly I’m not sure where my mind goes at times but today I pick myself up, start a new day and begin again.

What helps me keep on track are challenges. I love to have goals and to meet them. I’m really excited about the 2 week challenge coming up next week. We have posting goals at the gym too and when I have time I stay after and work on them. One of my goals is to get down my double unders. Last week I got one. Wish I could have kept it going but it is a rhythm method that I have to get down. So cheers to new challenges and setting new goals. Who cares if I went bananas last week! It’s over and my head is clear again. Moving forward now!

Double Under in Crossfit


I’m on Week 3? of my new training cycle.  I’m following Week 1 – Hard, Week 2 Intermediate, Week 3 – Super Hard and Week 4 deload. These levels all relate to lifting. In crossfit we have 3 levels. They are light, intermediate and Rx (which is prescribed weight). My training will based on what is light, intermediate and heavy for me. It won’t necessarily fall under the Rx label. I’m hoping that this method of training will get me back up to the Rx level that I was. My form is a lot better though.

Ladies this is 62% funded and it has been sitting there for several days. Please help me by sharing, liking, stumbling or any way that you can. I would really like to get to that 100%. For ALL my military sistas! Help a Soldier.

Eating out: yes
