My body rejects jump roping.

For Thursday, 6/28/12

Warm Up:
200 rope turns
usual warm up

A1: Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3
A2: Push Press 3-3-3-3-3
(5 rounds of 3 deadlifts, rest for 60 seconds / 5 push press rest, rest for 60 seconds)

B: 7 rounds for time
7 push press 115/75
7 sit ups
7 push ups
7 pull ups

So, yeah... jump rope = jumping = boobs in the face. I'm very top heavy and I always have this fear that if I jump too much I'm going to get bitch slapped in the face. I'm praying to God that these twins shrink when the weight starts coming off, lol. The last time I dropped 25 lbs (damn you YO YO!) my twins dropped 1 cup size and 2 band sizes. Come on 2 cup sizes! Make momma proud.

Results A1: 65 lbs -- Coach D (names and gym will be shortened/omitted for my safety and the safety of the gym/coaches/other WODers) said I should be able to deadlift MY own weight. Well GOD DAMN. That is A LOT to lift lol. I mainly want to get the technique and form down.

Results A2: 55 lbs -- I need to get in the habit of fully extending and pushing my head through when I push it up. I think I was being too careful with myself yesterday. That pissed me off, lol.

Results B: Coach D scaled it down for me to 7 rounds of 4 reps. I stayed at my 55 lb weight for the push press. For the first 3 or 4 rounds, I did 4 reps each and used a 24" box for jumping pull ups. Towards the end of the rounds, I managed to push myself to 5-6 reps, and Coach D told me to move to a 20" box.

Time: 12:40

I really can't wait to be able to do a pull up. That's what I really want to accomplish (short-term). I think if I really stick to it and keep my things together, then I'm hoping to be able to in 2-3 months.

My brother thinks that when I lose the weight, and build leaner muscles, I'll be back to my softball body. And pfft, let me tell you. I wasn't skinny, but I was built and I loved my body then, lol. I will post my high school softball picture later, that is, if I can find it.

I know I won't see results fast, maybe the first 10 lbs will come off fast as most people would agree (my goal is to lose 30 lbs by New Years), my friend's wedding is in late August and I want to wear this really cute magenta/fuschia cocktail dress. It's a tube dress that's FITTED. And I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that fat chick + tight dress does not = hott.

Yeah, I'm vain. Whatevs. BUT what's different this time around is that, I'm putting my health first instead of how I look. I can easily lose my 30 lbs in a way that's super unhealthy (diet drinks that make you poop, pooping pills, starving, etc) ... I've started to eat better and just from 5 crossfit sessions ALONE, I'm already feeling better, and good about myself.

Playing travel softball was one hell of a passion of mine. The comradery, the competition, and a group of people who share similar values. I think this is exactly what I need to stay sane.
