  1. This intentional accountability has me motivated.

    Monday morning –
    3 rounds for time
    12 squats
    12 sit ups
    12 HR push ups
    in 3:05
    then 4 min or so of rest
    then I did it again in 3:05 again. The 2nd time thru I thought I was way slower – especially on the PU but I hustled in the squats and I was completely surprised that my time on the second round was exactly the same as the first. I guess I was sandbagging on the first round.

  2. Monday Morning:

    10 pushups (on my knees)
    15 squats
    3 pullups (with a band)

    I did these in rounds for 15 minutes and I was able to do about 8 rounds.

  3. Monday:

    Spiritual: Day 13 Exodus meditation and read Chapters 2&3 of Mark.

    Workout:

    AMRAP in 10 min:
    – 5 Pull-ups (Banded)
    – 10 Push-ups
    – 15 Squats

    I messed up counting but think I did 8 or 9 rounds. The pull-ups got tough… even with the bands!

  4. Tuesday morning:
    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
    25# DB Squats
    Burpees
    Sit ups
    in 9:41.

    Man those burpees wear you out!

  5. Tuesday:

    Spiritual: Day 14 Exodus meditation and read Gospel of St. Mark

    Workout:

    3 Rounds for Time
    – 200 meter run
    – 10 Thrusters
    – 20 sit-ups

    My time was 10:56. Arms were sore from yesterdays pull-ups! Looking forward to active rest tomorrow!

  6. ~Tuesday Morning~

    Three rounds for time

    -200 meter run
    -20 situps
    -10 thrusters

    • Dude, do you even CrossFit? Ha! Just kidding… awesome workout… can’t wait to come close to this one day!

  8. Tuesday – 30min in adoration of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament over lunch hour
    Tues night at the gym with the family –
    dead lift – I’m getting the hang of these and I like them, going slow not to heavy, focusing on form and keeping back straight
    bench press – went for fewer reps but heavier wt, maxed at 5 reps at 165#
    lunges holding 30#DB
    40#DB lat pulls
    10min of stair master
    then play in the basket ball gym with the little kids
    Wed morning –
    15min yoga and stretching
    I bought a door hanging suspended wt strap deal and tried it out a bit doing a few sets of a kind of pull up / row

  11. Thursday:

    Spiritual: Day 16 Exodus meditation and read from Gospel of Mark. Also started “listening” to what I read via the awesome EWTN app. So, if I read chapter 5 I try to listen to it later in the day. It’s pretty powerful and interesting how you pick up different things.

    Friday – rest day, I’m still working out a kink in my neck / shoulder

    prayer this morning – from St Josemaria Escriva
    “Bitterness? – The truth is that ‘more is being asked of you’ and you can’t bring yourself to give it. Humble Yourself.”

  13. Friday:

    Spiritual: Day 17 Exodus meditation and Exodus small group meeting.

    Workout:

    4 rounds for time:
    – 75 meter run (I need to get a different jump rope to see if that’s why I stink at them since I was supposed to do 50 jump ropes)
    – 25 mountain climbers
    – 20 squats
    – 10 shoulder press

    I messed up my watch but finished in less than 9 minutes.
