I just got home from the Box…and I can hardly lift my arms! Tonight’s workout was “The Chief”.
Let me tell you, this was 20 minutes of pure hell…and I loved it!
I had to scale the workout and only cleaned 55lbs. I think next time I could lift more, but the 55lbs was a good challenge…especially towards the end of the workout! In the 5 cycles, I was able to do 15 rounds plus 2 cleans. I’m pretty happy with that…and especially with my push-ups, which were strong throughout the whole workout (although I did them on my knees, they felt much more solid than they did a month ago!)
Tonight I had a great dinner before heading to the gym. I made the Clean Eating Sesame Pork Tenderloin with Bok Choy and Apple Tamari Glaze. This was a repeat recipe and it was a hit again. In fact, my older son says we need to have this more often. He is not a big fan of the bok choy, so I made corn for the kids. I also roasted up some acorn squash to round out the meal.
Tomorrow is a day off from the box, but I will be cooking clean again. Tomorrow is Cauliflower, Goat Cheese & Chicken Casserole. This was so good last time I made it, I can’t wait to try it again. Plus, while the casserole cooks, I should have a half hour or so to either do a kettlebell workout, Fitness Blender workout, or maybe even hit the treadmill for a run…you know, since the GoodLife half marathon is only 2 months away and I still haven’t completed a single training run!!! God, this is not going to be good! Oh well!
But now, in typical fashion, it’s late and I’m exhausted. I need to get my achy arms to bed. I’m terrified of how much I am going to hurt tomorrow. No pain, no gain, right?!!!
How was your Monday?
Did you eat clean and get a killer workout in?
And don’t forget…
