Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

Personally, I feel that my rest days are as important, if not more than my work days.

Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

Jesse, I know you're right. I have just been a little over-excited about the new workouts. The next rest day will be a complete rest day. No additional cardio for me.

Haha. Yeah, it's the hormel canned chicken. It's just like canned tuna. I actually think it tastes pretty good.

Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

WOd:
15 pushups
12 dips
9 pushpress

First two sets I did regular dips and used a 45 pound bar.
Then I had to scale back and use assisted dip machine at -50 and 40 pound bar.

Looking back maybe I should have slowed down and stuck with the 45 lb bar and the regular dips.

I did 8 round in 20 mins.

Okay...I feel like I am definitely gaining muscle size but not really seeing fat loss. I know this is diet related. I'm not sure if I should scale back with the blocks (trying to get about 11 blocks a day although I may be getting more fat than I am intended to due to my love of nut butters) or stick with it for a while and see if the added muscle doesn't eventually help me to lean out without cutting food back.

Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

8 rounds is smashing it! It's difficult to decide whether you'll do a metcon or go for strength on some of the WODs such as this one. Nice job!

Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

Hey Vanessa!

Great job on the WOD today! You said you're shooting for 11 blocks? I think we're the same size (5'4" and 120lbs). Are you trying to lose weight? I did 11 blocks and it wasn't enough for me... I eat more like 13-14 blocks but I'm also not trying to lose any weight... I felt too tired on just 11.

Also, I think logging what you eat will help. I did that for a week straight until I felt comfortable with eyeballing my portions.

Keep it up!

Re: Vanessa's1st Crossfit Journal

Hi Carla,
I would like to lose some body fat. I don't know if that will translate to less scale weight since CF is definitely challening my muscles in a new way therefore I would not be suprised if I gain some muscle weight.

I've dealt with a lot of eating disorder issues in the past so 11 blocks feels like a lot to me actually...


Today's WOD:Pullups weighted
1-1-1-1-1

I modified this as I'm not yet doing sets of pullups. I did 5 sets of 5.

First set I got 4 unassisted. They felt much easier! I can tell I am getting stronger.

Then I used to purple band for assistance on the next set. Got 5.

Then went down and used less assistance with the blue band on the next set of 5.

Then the red band for the last two sets of 5.

I am soooo excited since I can already tell I am gaining strength!

CFE WOD


I was supposed to run or do C2 but I feel like I tweaked something in my right glute. It's very sore and tight so I defaulted to the Stepmill (the reverse escalator).

Intervals:
2 minutes at level 14-15 and then one minute at level 7. Repeat x 8.

Then I did pushups to failure at the end. I got about 25. I was too tired to count or care at that point.

THEN, I did the burpees as I forgot to put them in my warmup! 15 and I about died!
