Season’s Eatings

Thanksgiving, and the beginning of the holiday season is a week away.  For many, the holidays are an opportunity to spend time with loved ones, and eat some delicious food.  Let’s all agree to do our best to keep the crazy to a minimum when it comes to what we’re eating during the holidays.  Please don’t bargain with yourself and rationalize pumpkin pie, candied vegetables, and canned cranberry sauce as good choices.  This is a time of year to be enjoyed.  Eat what looks tasty, move on, and resolve to make better decisions with your next meal.

Working out is a great way to help reduce any added holiday stress, but don’t worry if you can’t make it into CrossFit Fenway.  There’s lots of great body weight movements that require no equipment like push-ups, sit-ups, air squats, burpees, and running, to name a few (if any of those movements make you cringe, do more of them).  Get creative with your personal programming.  Supplement the basics by picking up heavy things, and jumping on or over tall things.

  1. OHS- 60kg
    WOD- 40kg (mid workout scale down from RX), 3 rounds

    I came in high (and a little over confident) after my plethora of pushups yesterday. I let myself get a little spooked when I started loosing my balance in the OHS. Today reminded me that there is much to work on.

  2. Ok, I’m likely the world’s worst cross-fitter, but I’ll keep working at it, for sure. As they say, that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.

    Eric, great post, by the way. Just got a cool cookbook with almond flour recipes, and I’m very excited to see how the pancakes turn out 🙂

  3. OHS: 43 kgs (a 3 kg PR)

    WOD: 4 rounds even at 25 kgs. And don’t think that I didn’t notice that this was actually just a sprint of deconstructed thrusters!

  4. It’s good to be back in my home box! Man, did I miss you guys.

    OHS: 55 kgs, failed 3 times on the 60 kgs.
    WOD: 4 rounds exactly @ 40 kgs.

  5. So I discovered today that I couldn’t do Overhead Squats, still, because my wrist is still messed up. So I substituted in High-Bar Back Squats instead, working on that upright squatting, and pulled a 95kg, PR for the second day in a row (DL yesterday @120). It feels good!

    Did 35kg for the WOD, 4 rds.

    3rd day in a row, rest day tomorrow, and then invasion! Woo!!
