5am: Wake up
6am: Begin CrossFit
7am: Done Workout, dress and head to the gym.
8am: After leaving the gym, I sit in traffic for a while before arriving at work.
8am-8pm work (except on Monday when I left at 5:30 so I could go to the gym again from 7-8)
8-9pm: drive home...but this week they are doing construction on I-78 and I sat in traffic for an extra half hour
9pm : get home
9-11: make dinner, eat, relax with Karen, and pack my lunch for tomorrow.
11pm: go to sleep.
Repeat the next day. Yeah, it's been that kind of week. I'm not feeling dead or anything, just as you can see there has not been much time for a social life..but what do I need to do during the week anyways?
So my advice for the day is MAKE TIME. Yes you can do it too. The only people that I think have an excuse are those with young children at home. I don't know what that's like so I can't say you can make time..but anyone else..you have no excuse. If you go before work I think you'll feel great the entire work day and be more productive. 5 hour energy has nothing on crossfit!

Tips for "making" time
- Go in the morning
- Instead of going straight home..go to the gym. It will make you feel like you made time
- Don't lay down when you're home, if you relax it is harder to get going again
- Get a list of home WODs so that if you can't make it to the gym you can get a great workout in at home.
Strength: Find 2 rm hanging snatch
WOD : Karen 150 wall balls for time
Strength: I got 105 lbs and just missed 110 pounds. This move was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Molly asked if I'll ever be happy with a weight I get up...and my answer is no. But I'm starting to feel bad when people are like "good job" I never just say "thanks" I say "yeah but I want to do better" I gotta get a lil more positive
WOD: I was actually happy with my time here. I set a goal in my head of 10 minutes. I started with 25 straight then slowly went from 10 in a row to finishing with 5 in a row. I did the workout prescribed (20 lb medicine ball) which made me really happy. Final time: 9:50
I am killing my diet. Having protein after workout. Eggs for breakfast. Fruit before noon then only veggies and protein after lunch. I have had some cashews each day. Doing well. 30 days until Vegas!
Tomorrow is a 2 a day. I think I'm gonna do some sprints or some rowing tomorrow night.
