wods ending 4 28 { HIIT, Trader Joes, Sprouts, Costco }

This week was rough.
Work presented some new lows.  Probably the worst weeks of teaching in my 7 years of experience. The newborn and mom was sick.

I did not think I would get any training in this week, but every day i made an effort to get some thing in.

HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training
Nothing new here - i have used HIIT with sprints - but i am trying it with the basic 4 movements - push ups, pull ups, squats, and planks - I am very sore -

Trader Joes - the whole freaking family has started eating paleo - not because it was a decision - they just love the food I eat - and they eat all my food first - the cost of feeding my family has climbed to about 200 bucks a week

I shop at sprouts, trader joes, and costco
Its a lot of work to keep paleo food in the house without going broke -
but its worth it

here was the plan
My 3 year old cranked out over 100 push ups on thursday - this kid is going to pass me up quick

Here is what got done.

workouts ending april 20th - a truly pitiful week

This week I had no plan - no goals and honestly no desire to work out at all
the results reflect that

I am very tight - the left ankle is hurting
this next weeks focus will be on flexibility and mobility

I am just phoning in the work outs these days

Since the baby (7 weeks) I have just been phoning in the work outs.

I am averaging about 4 workouts a week, they are short in duration and low in intensity.

However I am getting them done ~ I have a long term focus of training, 1 year results - not 8 week results.

Paleo is going wll

The cost of eating paleo $$$

a friend was asking about how i afford to maintain a paleo diet / lifestyle

it is a sacrifice - I spend about 3 times more on food then before. I have a family of 4 and my wife is starting to move to eating paleo as well

my 3 year old naturally leans to eating paleo

so compared to the average family we probably spend 2 to 3 times as much on food

but we never eat out
never buy crap at the store
dont drink
~ a lot of little crap gets cut out

i think in the end if you are thinking about going paleo plan on X2 your current food budget.

but i have no complaints
if you are going to spend money on anything - shouldent it be what you put in your body?

my wife has started paleo

my wife has started paleo

i did not push her to do it at all

but i think she sees the results and just has to admit its working

well see how she does

the first weeks are very difficult
