Sunday Status Update 1/14/18

Posted: January 14, 2018 in CrossFit, Training


We’re fourteen days into 2018, and I’ve published 14 posts on the blog. Starting strong this year, folks. We’re doing it!

Here’s last week’s recap and my goals for the upcoming week. Feel free to share yours with me, too.

Last week:

  • Fitness- After not even being able to remember the last time I did the lift, I hit a really strong Front Squat at 300lbs. I also hit 230lbs for a Hang Snatch, which is the first time I’ve hit a number that high in a long time, too! I’ve been trying to add in more accessory work in my life, so when my buddy Peter dropped in to train with me we did 150lb sandbag holds. 2 rounds of 1:00, and 1 round of max time; I got 1:48 (because Peter got 1:44, ha!)
  • Hit all of my goals from last week: Two posts about the Open, worked out 4 days, was in bed by 11 one night, started my first book (Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual, by Jacko Willink), and ate “meal prepped” food for every meal!

This week:

  • Write two more “The 2018 Open is Coming” posts
  • Hoping to work out 4 days between Monday and Friday, and be in bed by 11 at least TWO nights.
  • I want to FINISH the book by next Sunday and write a brief summary
  • Went food shopping for the week yesterday. I used to do Meal Prep videos and posts on the blog a long time ago. To get back into the swing of things, I want to do another one this week!

What’s going on with all of you? I still want us to be “Accountabilibuddies” together. Let’s hear it!

Just watching the time go by…

    Thanks for the summary. The posts are interesting and thoughtful. The meal prep is critical in being successful w/ health and wellness.
    I finished my book For the Glory. You can see the cover on Instagram. It’s such an inspirational book and ties to your desire to have being grateful on the forefront of your mind. It was a perfect book to keep my gratefulness in check! I’m also 2/3 of the way through my KB course for recertification!
    I’ve also read all of your posts and now can’t me ted on two that resonated with me.
    I’m curious to hear on a post as to how your doing with trying something new/different to get you out of your comfort zone. We didn’t hear an update on that.
    Thanks for your posts!

      I appreciate the suggestion for a next book to read, Veronica! I’ll see where I am after finishing this one. The list of books I want to read is so long, it’ll be interesting to see where I go next. As for trying something new, my goal is one per month, so at the end of January I’ll update on what I did! 🙂 So glad you’re reading the blog, and liking it. Good luck finishing your KB Course Recert book!
