Back to Crossfit

I've been a total slackard when it comes to working out. That means I haven't been. I had a good reason. For the past six months, my hand issues made Crossfit and climbing difficult and painful, but my hands are so much better now. Nearly good as new so it's time to stop being such a couch potato (or in my case a chair potato) and start working out again.

To get back into working out, I'm going to be joining in with Crossfit Washougal to do a 100 day challenge. I tried the 100 day burpee challenge this fall, but due to my hands only made it to day forty-something. This new challenge consists of Push ups, Sit ups and air squats. The first day, February 1, will be one of each. By day 100 we'll be doing 100 of each. The kidlets who do Crossfit Kids twice a week are joining in, too. Hubby wants to give it a try, too, but we'll see how he does with his knee!

Wish me luck please. I'm going to need it! I have a feeling the kidlets are going to kick my butt!

Lots of luck. I truly can't do push ups. No upper arm strength I guess lol. It's funny because my one daughter is like me and can't do any but my youngest takes after her dad and could always easily do them.

Good luck Melissa! I need a swift kick in the pants to get me back on track with working out... alas :P

Melissa said...

Thanks!

Marianne - I'll remind you of your day 1 and what you need to do :-)

limecello - how about we kick each other in the pants so we both get working out??

I wish you very Good Luck Melissa.

I am hoping my luck has just changed because we just got out power back after three days. We had a bad winter storm and everyone has been without power and heat.There are still thousands of people here without power and they don't know when they will get it back. I keep praying for these people and I also hope our power stay on. It has been a really bad week.

I really need to get off my you-know-what and start exercizing. Sigh...
