Throwdown Thursday

Today was kind of a big day at our house. Tristan walked to school by himself. No one warns you of these bittersweet moments. It was made even more bittersweet because there was a time I wasn’t sure he’d be able to be independant like this. When you get a diagnosis of autism your life is put in a tail spin, but it seems so far we’ve come out ok. It was such a huge accomplishment for him and he was so proud of himself.

So I decided to make today Throwdown Thursday. Tristan threwdown in life, so I threwdown in my workout. Today was back and biceps and I tried some pretty heavy stuff with the husband home to spot me. I managed to deadlift 70lbs a few times, the most I’ve tried is 40lbs. The husband also wanted to see what I could bench and I managed 50lbs for a few reps. It hurt, but in a good way!

Looking at the reps I’m doing I think I need to up my weight

WOD – November 5

I’m a day late posting my workout but I had yet another field trip to attend with my kids. We went to the symphony yesterday and it was awesome, the conductor dressed up as Lord Vadar and conducted the Imperial March with a light saber, my son loved it! And my daughter was in awe when they played “Let It Go” from Frozen. Anyway, before the symphony I got a good workout in.

I was feeling pretty tired yesterday, which is why I only did one HIIT. So I figured I needed a rest day today, so I’m chilling this morning and then climbing with the hubs this afternoon.
