My TV Void

February 13, 2013

I started off the day at the gym this morning. There were a lot of new mommas in class today so it was a bit slower paced than usual. We started off with power cleans. It was suppose to be 5×3 but I accidentally got it backwards and did 3×5, with a 45# empty bar. I could have gone heavier since it was 80% 1RM. Coach Nancy said my cleans were looking really good. They felt good too, finally I’ve gotten that movement down! We were suppose to test for max pullups and body rows but ran out of time before the WOD. Shucks 😉

The WOD was 5 rounds of max back squats @ 70% 1RM, 15 box jumps and 15 double unders. I used 75# for my back squat, which was feeling heavy since my legs were still sore from Monday’s WOD and yoga yesterday. I tried for 10 squats a round, but only managed 10 on the first round and 5 on the other four. The good news was Coach Nancy said my squats were looking perfect and she’s happy with the improvement I’ve made. HIGH FIVE! I finished the WOD in 9:03.

Yesterday they tested max air squats and burpees so I decided I would test them myself at home this afternoon. I did 40 air squats and 20 burpees. I probably could have pushed myself to reach the cap for both (30 burpees and 50 squats), but I slowed down so much so I just quit. I bet next time we test them I will reach the caps with ease.

Since moving out on my own, I haven’t been much of a TV watcher. I have always been busy with college, dance, working out, work, and having a social life. Now that I’m home every night with Liam in bed, I’ve been blitzing through a bunch of seasons of shows while I blog, fold laundry, etc. Since becoming pregnant, I’ve finished the entire series of Gossip Girl, Gilmore Girls, Prison Break, Sons of Anarchy, and recently How I Met Your Mother. Every time a series comes to an end, I feel a bit empty until I find something to fill the void. But after HIMYM, I’m not sure anything could come close. It’s going to be a long wait until the new seasons come out on Netflix.

Now I need some recommendations of what to watch next. I’ve started watching Breaking Bad, Weeds and Community as I’ve heard good things about them all, but couldn’t manage to get into them.

What are you watching?

    I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks now…. A few TV shows I’ve fallen in love with are Parenthood and Greys Anatomy….both SO good. Also New Girl is pretty funny, and Arrested Development is my all time fav (like, i’ve watched each season about 4 times).
