Moves Like Jager

It took a little over a week of being back on track but I’m happy to report I’m out of my workout and eating funk. Finally! I know it only lasted three weeks, but that’s a long time when it comes to your waistline. I’m still not back to where I was pre-gluttony and I still may be thinking back lovingly to that day a week ago when I ate nine marshmallows dipped in Jif chocolate peanut butter, but things take time. (I don’t recommend that by the way. I mean, I do. But, I don’t.)

Anyway, my biggest fan recommended I post some pictures of myself doing Crossfit. Since I’m such a people pleaser (not really), I’m going to do just that.


On Saturday,Β we did a modified version of the Dirty Thirty.

Modified Dirty Thirty

There are usually squats and lunges in there, but our trainer was being nice since he mutilated our legs during our workout two days earlier.

Also, if you like the workouts I post, you can follow my Workouts pin board on Pinterest. I’m not on Pinterest much, but I try to post them all there when I think about it. I also keep them in an album on my blog Facebook page. A lot of the workouts are no equipment needed, so if you’re looking for something new, check them out.

Ok, so here is me doing Crossfit in all my glory. Also, it might be helpful for any of you who don’t know what these sweet moves look like.

Wall Ball

No, I did not change outfits in the middle of my workout. It was a different day. Although, I do aspire to make my workouts like a Celine Dion concert of outfit changes. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes.

Kettle Bell Swing

I am smiling because my trainer makes me laugh, not because I love jumping pull-ups.

Jumping Pullup

The push press is one of my favorites. It’s awesome for the shoulders and makes it hurt to wash your hair for two days. Oh, and if this girl says anything about me not having extra weight on that 45lb bar, I will shank her. I did 30 of them for time, I don’t need to be getting crazypants.

Push Press

So, there you have it. Just a little peek at what I do during Crossfit every week. πŸ™‚

  1. loooooking good!!

    i’m glad you’re back on track, i am too. though i will lose my mind if anymore adorable girl scouts offer me cookies. my will power is shaky at best.

    and jumping pull-ups sound like pure hell. i would probably be crying, not smiling.

  2. daaaaaamn girl WOOOORK IT!
    haha i love your aspiration for wardrobe cahnges. My workout attire is pretty lame. Mostly old band or beer tshirts.

      I have those too! I have a faded Depeche Mode shirt I refuse to get rid of because it fits so well and is good for treadmill running. πŸ™‚

  3. You do have serious moves. This post kind of made crossfit look enticing to me… I’ve just been having a Celine Dion concert of outfit changes lately at home in my leisure wear.

    • Paula

      Those are my moves like Jager (which you have already seen). I think we should all incorporate leisure wear outfit changes into our daily lives. I was thinking of what I could wear before and after I microwave my lunch today.

  4. Crossfit still looks terrifying, but I approve of your form. I am going to do some jumping pull ups since I still can’t do real pull ups unless assisted by RJ. Ok, I can do maybe one. Mayyyybe.

  5. Haha I wasn’t even thinking of saying anything!! I seriously hate wallballs. I think it’s because I am so short that I have to add a jump in there to help get the ball up the wall. Lame I know. Also, push press made me cry once in a workout. I just wanted to dip to get the bar overhead, and that isn’t allowed 😦 Great shots though! πŸ™‚

  6. I’m pretty sure those push presses would make my arms fall off at my shoulders. I have really defined shoulder muscles for some reason, but they are so weak. I don’t get it. I can’t even imagine what I would look like if I could lift a 45lb bar 30 times.

    Those kettle swings look fun — I think I need to buy some kettle bells. #randomthought

      I love kettle bell swings! They really get your hamstrings too. Plus, I don’t feel like I’m working out with those. I just feel like I’m swinging crap around. haha

  7. That Jagar photo made me laugh πŸ™‚

    Your crossfit workouts look super intense. I love kettlebell swings, not sure why but I find them kind of fun.

    And that is exactly why I will never do Crossfit. You see my workout today was reading a magazine while on some type of elliptical. I was beet red, sweating, heaving beast afterwards, and still that’s it for me.

  9. Shoulder presses are seriously one of the hardest exercises for me! My 1RM is like 65#, so I think doing 30 reps of 45# is beastly πŸ™‚

  10. Crossfit look freaking hard! Which in turn just makes you look like a badass πŸ™‚

  11. Oh man, those pictures make my knee hurt! I would love to do crossfit, but it’s prohibitively expensive to join on of the gyms and the aforementioned bum knee seems like it would be a problem. I used to work with a guy who qualified for nationals and he was RIPPED.

    How do you just not pass out after those workouts? MAN. You are a champ. Marshmallows and chocolate peanut butter ….I shouldn’t try it. Because I wouldn’t be able to stop.
