So, I cheated a little bit on the morning of Day 4. No, nothing food related, I cheated with the scale. I desperately wanted to know what was going on with the weight changes and I'm so glad I did! I'm down 2.6 pounds from when I started. It was definite motivation to keep on going!
I started off the day with my usual scrambled eggs and added the nitrate free sausage I had prepared the night before. I mixed up another almond milk smoothie, this time with half a banana and some strawberries.
I struggled with finding something for lunch, as it was hot and I was tired. The tuna fish and avocado from Wednesday sounded really good, so I made another serving of that.
I sliced another cantaloupe for my snack and took about 1/4 of that in for my 3pm energy boost.
I had prepared Paleo Chicken Curry a month ago and defrosted it and put it in the crock pot for dinner.
Since we took Wednesday off, we went into the gym and did the most horrible workout ever.
15 minutes, as many rounds as possible
25 Double Unders (ratio was 4:1 for singles)
10 Burpee to Broad Jumps
I completed only 3 rounds and all of the single jump ropes for the 4th round. This WOD was hard. My shoulder was sore on the burpees, my feet were sore from my heels and then jumping. Ugh.
BUT, I DID IT. And the part of CrossFit that applies here is practicing what you dislike or are bad at to make it your strength.
After the workout, I did 3 sets of 5 pull-ups on the green band for the first set (which takes away 65# of your body weight) and the last two sets with the green and red band (taking away a total of 90#).
I had some celery, carrots, and red peppers with a homemade avocado dip for a late night snack.
Another good day. Almost half-way through my 10 days.
