I continue to eat very well. I indulge no more than once per week whether it be a meal or beer, but the day after, it's back on track, trying to live as close to a Paleo lifestyle as I can w/out obsessing and being so rigid. I want to enjoy my food...always have.
This morning was the weekly/weekend Hopper WOD's at Crossfit Carmel. (Click on the link to read what a Hopper is for you non Crossfitters. The first WOD was 4 rounds of:
400 meter run
50 air squats
My time: 17:30....fairly pleased
Usually, that is enough for me, but I decided to stay and see what the 10 a.m. WOD would be.......
A Hero WOD
20 minutes AMRAP (As Many Reps as Possible)
5 pull up's
10 push up's
15 air squats
My result: 13 plus 5 pull ups and 10 push ups (I felt like Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off trying to decide if I was going to do this or not.)
Watching the first heat get rounds in the 20's, I knew I was spent, but I just wanted to finish and give it a try WITHOUT QUITTING. My point today?

I always need something to chase and that ebb's and flows: Eating Paleo for 30 days served that for me and finishing Cindy after already completing a WOD did that for me. Learning how to do air squats (what seems like a simple thing) properly today did that for me. Stretching (after throwing out my back did that for me) Crossfit has taught me not only to push myself further than I thought I could, rather it's taught me how to be a complete fit person. Stay tuned......Crossfit Carmel is going to start a new challenge: 100 days of burpees and I'm going to complete it!
