Holy cats, that was NO JOKE! So, my first WOD went something like this:
Warm up: for 6 minutes, AMRAP at 80%: (I finished 5 sets, but was at more than 80% for sure)
8 push/presses with a plate (mine was 10#)
8 air squats
WOD: 30 minute time limit
Use a bar w/weight (mine was 40#) do 50 m out and back walking lunges at full-depth with bar racked on your shoulders/back. Anyone stopping has to do 3 shoulder presses.
Out & back with a plate overhead, walking lunges at full depth
1600 m carrying a Kettle bell (mine was 12.3#), after every 400 m, do 45 kettle bell swings.
As with all Cross Fit WODs they can be scaled back based upon your ability level. I was only able to complete 600 meters, total and 135 Kettle Bell swings.
I couldn't decide for a few minutes if I was going to pass out or throw up. If you know me at all, vomiting is not something I do. I didn't do it when I was pregnant. I don't believe in it. I was waiting for it to happen and trying to figure out the best place to do it while I was doing my Kettle Bell swings. On my second 200 out and back, I detoured to the car for my inhaler; definitely required for a muggy gross day like today. There I was, Kettle Bell in hand, reaching into the car for my inhaler. I'm going to start writing down my food and working with Andrea toward a Paleo diet. She suggested we work on 1 meal at a time, once I get breakfast good and comfortable, start switching lunch over, then dinner. THat seems really obvious, but I'd never though about doing it that way.
Last thing I want to say is that I've always heard about the "Cross Fit Community". I really got that feeling today, that I was part of a community of people there to work together and meet their fitness/health goals. I was being encouraged and applauded for my efforts, so much so that I was on the verge of tears. It is such a difficult task to undertake, and encouragement means EVERYTHING!
I am so excited for what the future holds for me, and to see how this changes both me and my body.
