I still have a busy time in school, and at the same time getting together my CrossFit workouts. I am not used to adapt myself to my daily workouts, but it works fine actually. I always look forward to my workouts so the long bike ride to the box is just fine. Here is how my day looked like today:
- Waking up
Tired girl waking up at 06:30 am. I always lie in bed reading my emails and checking Instagram out in like 10-15 minutes. Perfect way to wake up, no hurry at all.. (The hurry usually comes later on, haha..).
Now when it is so dark outside in the mornings I try to lit some candles and eat my breakfast in this cosy enviroment. I eat my protein oatmeal and drink my ginger tea almost every day in the week before school. Today I also ate half a grapefruit, yum!
Ready for school – in a hurry. It also has been raining for a week, always when I am on my way to school.. All I can say is that I did not look like this 10 minutes later in school!
Working on our project. So lucky to be a part of this amazing group of people.
Taking a second breakfast at 10 am. This is natural quark with unsweetened vanilla powder, raspberries and blueberries. I also ate my lunch (forgot the picture) at 12:30 pm.
- Food prepping
I came home from school at 4 pm, and then it was time to make some food and do the dishes. THIS is what I made today, but with the bacon wrapped outside.
All done! Food for one and an half day.
I ate a meal again 1-2 hours before my CrossFit workout. I always take my bike to the box, which is like 3,5 km away. This picture is actually from September, it was pitch dark when I was on my way to my workout which started at 6 pm. And of course it was raining again, haha.
I don’t bring my phone in to the box, so I took this picture from Lifebox’s Instagram. It’s a little sneak peak on how my workout place look like. Love it here! So much fun each time.
This picture is from today after I came home from my workout and the bike ride home, puh! Here you have the WOD (which was very challenging and fun):
A: Push Jerk technique practise. 4, 3, 3, 2, 2 and 2 repetitions. I felt comfortable with 40 kg and ended there today since today was the first time I did this particular exercise.
B: Todays WOD was 5 rounds of:
As many rounds as possible in 2 minutes:
2 strict handstands push-ups. (Standing against a wall and pushing yourself up)
4 backwards lunges with kettlebell
8 russian swings with the same kettlebell
I used a 20 kg kettlebell and managed to do 17-18 rounds.
- My evening
After taking a shower and stuff like that, I finally have some time for my own. I always look forward spending it watching a good movie and making some good food. This is an omelette, protein smoothie, tea and half a grapefruit. I also check my emails, Instagram and right now I am writing this blogpost. This happens from like 8-11 pm.
So basically this is how my days look like the days I go to school – always 5 days a week. Even though I have the same routine, my days are very different.
“Wake up determined, go to bed satisfied”
Remeber that quote I wrote I while ago? Well that is pretty much exactly how I feel every day. And if I don’t, then something is wrong and I try to fix it. Like when I decided working out at the gym less, and start with CrossFit for new challenges and motivation. That was the best decision I could have done right now. I am filled with energy and satisfaction now!
