My First Crossfit Experience

I went to crossfit on Sunday for the first time with my friend Erin!  Before I went I had a banana and me preworkout shake.

This was a previous workout, but since it was my first time I am taking the beginner classes!


cross fit yea

This beginner class was awesome. After we learned the basics on each workout we did the WOD:

  • 50 Double Unders (or 150 regular jump rope)
  • 21 – 15 – 9 of  Dead Lifts, Wall Balls
  • To finish- another 50 Double Unders

She didn’t make me do the last set of Jump Rope. Thank God. I was very winded. My heart rate during the wall balls when I checked my watch said 180! No wonder I was out of breath! After it all was said and done I burned 708 calories!

After Crossfit I came home and showered and made “brunch” since it was almost noon!

Scrambled eggs ( 1 egg and 2 egg whites) with spinach, avocado, and cheese.

Whole wheat sandwich thin with chunky peanut butter

During the day I had a soup cooking in the crock pot, getting ready for Monday’s meal.  I work 10 hours then I will probably go to the gym so I made homemade soup.  Something easy so the boys can eat without waiting on me.

Shredded chicken, organic low sodium chicken broth, water, a bunch of veggies (edamame, carrots, spinach, corn), salt and pepper.

After dinner we made chocolate chip Christmas cookies for the 24 Days of Togetherness!  We made the real thing. No healthy version of these 🙂

We split the batter, and made some with white chocolate chunks and the other half with dark chocolate chips!

I also ate a zillion of them myself! (Only 2 small ones) I couldn’t resist. They were so tasty. I’m taking a dozen to work so they aren’t tempting me at the house to eat!
