I have missed you guys~ I had a busy weekend with friends and family, so here’s what happened.
Friday we went to Everything’s D’Vine for a wine/beer tasting for our friend’s birthday. We had a blast.
Happy Birthday Lindsey!
On Saturday I did my First Crossfit Open WOD: 13.1
Let’s just say I loved it and hated it at the same time! I had to scale the weight of course, but it was still so hard! I’m sad I didn’t get any pictures. 😦 I need to get better at that!
This was the weight I used for the snatches: 27.5 lbs, 45 lbs, 55 lbs. There’s no way I could even snatch 75# for 30 reps. This was my first actual WOD that included snatches also so I was kind of scared!
I’ve only been doing crossfit for about a month so I am still a beginner, but I will get stronger!
I figured the burpees would be the EASY part and I thought I would bust them out, but I was partially WRONG. I did the first 40 burpee’s pretty quick, and the first snatches of 27.5 lbs was pretty easy too. Then came the second set of burpees (30) and I was moving pretty slow. I ended up getting to the third set of snatches with 55# and I got it up twice just before time ran out!
I actually felt like 18 minutes went pretty quick. So my total score was 152.
After crossfit I came home and prepared lunch before my Family Girls Weekend!
Salad with one hard boiled egg, avocado, edamame, orange peppers, cucumbers, and a little bit of shard cheddar.
On the side: some blackberries, and 1/2 of an English muffin with butter. I was craving carbs!
I also made my own dressing: Grapessed oil, splash of balsamic, s&p, random spices, splash of lemon juice.
Designer Whey also sent me some of their awesome products to try out. I have tried the french vanilla, and chocolate protein powders, so they sent me the white chocolate and some Protein to go! How awesome, I love having this stuff on hand 🙂
The protein to go is awesome because you can just pour it into a water bottle, shake it up and take it to go. I can always tell the difference between designer why products and other proteins because they has a certain smell to them. I really like the flavors of protein drink mix, and each one has 10 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar!
They also have protein bars that I really want to try out! They look so tasty!
Stay tuned for more of my Family Girl’s Weekend!
How was your weekend?
Have you tried any Designer Whey products?
