Day 5 = Almost Refreshed Ninja

Today was a better day. WOOT. I was able to get a little more sleep as well as take a nap and rest throughout the day. It’s so fun snuggling with Molliekins on the couch. I love the pleased look she gets on her furry little face when we have couch snuggle time.

It was a warm day, which made me crave some of my favorite hot weather snacks, such as ice cream and a big ice cold soda. I was also craving sweet potato fries and tried my hardest not to eat them today. Come dinner I couldn’t take it anymore. I want sweet potato fries!!! Even though they are considered legal in the Paleo diet I don’t want to have them all the time. I think I ate out for lunch everyday this week and my goal is to start eating at home for lunch. It’s so hard when I’m running around. However, now that I cut back my work days I am able to do so. Hooray!

The workout wasn’t too bad for me today. For the first part of the WOD I stuck with 65lbs even though you were supposed to gradually increase your weight. I didn’t want to overdo it since I’m still in the healing process, so instead I focused on my form while lifting lighter weight. During the main part of the WOD we did a skill called Man Makers, which I actually kind of like doing. However, because of my foot I can’t put pressure on it in the push-up position so I tried to do it on one leg. Danger! I almost crashed on my face. So, instead I had to do it on my knees.

Here’s a video of what a man maker is:

One thing I did notice during the workout was that I didn’t feel sluggish. I felt a little tired because of my exhausting week, but I didn’t feel sluggish. Does that make sense? My body felt clean and it felt good. This was the first time I’ve felt some sort of results from the diet. Yay!

I. Warm-up – mobility- 2x barbell complex, 1x normal warm-up

*You are supposed to gradually increase your weight, but I stuck with 65lbs so I wasn’t putting too much weight/pressure on my foot. Instead I focused on my form.
