I tried Crossfit… (and survived)

Posted Feb 19 2012 12:31am

Instead of going to Xtreme Bootcamp this weekend, I tried out a free WOD {that’s the acronym for “workout of the day”}.

Crossfit WOD


I just found out about a local Crossfit box in my area and decided to take the free WOD to see what the sport is like. Made some wheat toast slathered with peanut butter and was on my way! I almost didn’t go because of fear, but was glad that there were 2 other newcomers there.

It’s tough like Xtreme Bootcamp but I liked it better.

Warm-up definitely warmed you up:

  • 15 pushups
  • bear-crawl (across the room)
  • 15 sit-ups
  • 250m row
  • then do it 3 times

But then the active warm-up (yes, another warm-up) was a 1000m (fire) hose carry. Wooh-wee! Ever carry a fire house? And run with it? That was not easy!

Then the WOD was:

I was pumped this morning! Granted my push-ups were modified, but I did all 45 of them in my warm-up with stealth (which means I am definitely getting stronger)!

Am I hooked on Crossfit? Not sure. I would like to try out the weight training portion of it. It’s $150/month for unlimited access. And it seems to be a pretty big sport in my area {had NO idea}! So, I am weighing the pros & cons.

BTW, Burpees are still NOT MY FRIEND. But I did 49 of them!


Man, was I craving the protein shake afterwards! So, I tell you a little about my Crossfit experience and show you how to make my favorite protein smoothie in this video. It’s like ice cream for breakfast. Nom Nom! The recipe is posted at the end of the video.



Then the daughter and I went girl shopping at the mall & did lunch. The mall crowds on a Saturday are crazy!


The apes say “hi” (rainforest cafe)


Ashley and I split a Bacon Chicken Sandwich. And I seemed to be hooked on Water + Lemon. Never liked it before. Don’t know why the change. Now that I think of it, I have been craving a lot of citrus lately. Anyone know why this might be?

I love that saying, “Strong is the New Beautiful”. I actually picked up a pair of workout capris and a small gym bag to hold my phone, water bottle, keys and towel.

Did I tell you that I am currently really tired out and sore from Crossfit? haha.

I was discussing this with my husband, if you could only pick one, what type of cuisine could you live on? Mine would be Mexican. And that’s just what I had for dinner. ;)
