New Year, New Victories

First off I hope that everyone had a great New Years!…and this is how CrossFitters drink by the way haha.

Here are a few little victories I had before we all rung in the new year…
1. The day after Christmas me and my coach, Bud, had a little open gym time. We accomplished two WODs in a row.

Double Unders and Sit-ups
TIME- 8:02

Little slow, but hey just working off all that holiday food right. (Even though I ate pretty good/healthy food somehow!)

Second WOD was:
150m run
12 deadlifts at 115#
12 decline push-ups
TIME- 7:32

2. I PR’d on my back squat again. Got it up to 235. Only 100 more lbs to go! ha

3. Last Friday I did a small competition at CrossFit Central downtown in Austin called the CrossFit Classic. This was the 4th edition and the WOD was “Jackie”. Usually these comps are composed of Games style benchmark WODs.

1000m Row
50 Thrusters 45# (for men and women. weird right? There is a definite time difference between the men and women because of that)
30 Pull-ups
TIME- 8:32
I won a growler full of some delicious dark beer, I think it was a coffee porter. CrossFit First Place

Side note: seeing the “West Side” written next to my head makes me wish I threw up some gang signs or something haha.

New Years Resolutions

Going Paleo!
Started yesterday morning. I went to the book store and bought 2 HUGE books with paleo recipes in them. Meat, Meat, Meat and more meat! yeah. I think I will enjoy this, just not so sure my cholesterol levels will haha.
Yesterday I had:
Breakfast – Eggs and bacon
Lunch – Spicy Calamari – dont buy the frozen stuff, its gummy, but pretty much impossible to find fresh calamari anywhere!
Dinner – Seared skirt steak with a garlic butter drizzle and brocoli soup.
Snack – Almond butter as I sit at my desk. First time to try it, it tastes like crackers haha.

Anyways, enough for today! Hope everyone has a good workout today. Work Hard, Be Strong, Live Long. Yup, just made that up, probably saw it somewhere im sure though.
