Where did that butt go?!

February 16th, 2010 · 3 Comments

3 months ago, these were my favorite jeans. Lucky. Easy Riders.  They fit me perfectly. Quads, waist, everywhere.  And, I only owned one pair of jeans cause these fit so well.  So, now, almost three months later with five cross fit workouts a week and a fairly loose ZONE diet these jeans are falling off me!  I wish I could say WHOO HOOO?!?! But, you know how hard it is to find one pair of jeans that fit?  Ok, I’m still happy to be shrinking, but, man, I need some street clothes!

Yes, you can too lose inches off your butt!  If you can’t find a local cross fit in your area, log on to Cross Fit and read the workouts of the day.  There are MANY that you can do with zero equipment (read the message boards too). I think the bottom line is that every single day we do something different and even though I may walk in sore, I can still do the workout of the day- because it involves different muscles.

DECISIONS AND SETTING GOALS:

Last February, I raced my bike and won those roses on my home page, remember? Well yesterday, I could have raced that race again, but didn’t.  We were still there, but, I wasn’t racing.  I haven’t been on my bike in 2 months….So, here comes the question, will I race again this season? I just don’t know…I’m not all that motivated to try and schedule even two rides a week with my schedule the way it is and not excited to juggle being mother to two boys on race day.  That was the part that always freaked me out last year;  “what are they doing???”  I would love to get out and do some easy rides on weekends, but am not ready to commit to a race yet…give me a few more months!

So, onwards and upwards…There are lots of things I could chose to focus on in Cross Fit and lots of small goals I could set myself that seem both achievable and worth working towards.

Like executing a perfect overhead squat with 95 pounds on the bar.  Or completing a 95 pound Clean or even a SNATCH for that matter.  Each day we try a new workout, so that three months from now when we do it again, we can track our own improvement, and I know I can do it better and faster each time.  That’s the beauty of it.  And, yes, I am still running and doing yoga! Crazy as it sounds, we do lots of sprints in Cross Fit and then I spend my day job teaching and doing yoga with my students.

What goals are you working towards now?  Although, I’ve not yet written down any large concrete goals, I’m setting small ones and I’m happy with that.

    I guess my overall goal is to lose that last 20 pounds that have hung on more stubbornly than the rest. My small, daily goals that will hopefully help me to reach my overall goal are to eat even cleaner and to work out longer. It is snowy here, so I work out inside for 40 minutes 5 days a week and add 20 to 30 minutes of yoga 3 days a week.

    I hope to begin running in the spring.

    Does that mean you are now under 140? I remember last year you wanted to get down to about 133.
