w00t

Today's Weigh-In: 218.2 lbs.
5-day average: 219.76 lbs.

Finally got my average under 220. I guess that's what eating right and exercising will do. This CrossFit stuff has got my metabolism burning like crazy, which is great and not so great at the same time. It's great because it burns calories like crazy, but it also makes me really hot all day and really hungry (like, ravenously hungry), so I have to be extra careful not to go over on my calories.

Today's workout was brutal. They call it the Filthy Fifty:
50 Box jump, 24 inch box (I did box step-ups)
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood (I did a 12 kg kettlebell)
Walking Lunge, 50 steps
50 Knees to elbows
50 Push press, 45 pounds
50 Back extensions
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball (I used a 6-lb. ball)
50 Burpees (these are terrible)
50 Double unders (jump rope, I did 3 singles for each prescribed double unders).

I had to scale it to 30 reps of each exercise, because I wouldn't have made it to 50. I almost didn't make it to 30, the burpess just destroyed me, but I finished. 25 minutes and change. Next time I hope to be in good enough shape to tackle it as prescribed (hopefully it won't come up again any time soon lol).
