But I was remarkably psyched for this morning’s workouts at CrossFit Austin. My no-cheat eating plan is finally, FINALLY making me feel energetic, strong, and light on my feet. Finally.

We had two WODs today… it was like a free-with-purchase treat! (As an aside… this morning, I heard a promo on the radio: “Buy an energy drink, get a free Snickers bar!” Seriously.)

15 minutes of snatch practice
(Fun! And hard. And somewhat painful. But fun!)

5 rounds:
:30 wall balls / rest :30
:30 kipping pullups (blue band) / rest:30
:30 jump rope/double-unders / rest :30


5 rounds:
:30 push press, 35# / rest :30
:30 jumping lunges / rest :30
200m run

My time: 29:01

    Yay healthy food high energy levels! I know the feeling, it took almost 15 days for it to really kick in for me this time around. Feels great though.
