Hey, its been a while! Since moving to Italy it’s been crazy to get settled, situated and inspired. But I am finally back! So far this year I have had goals of drawing every day, getting back on track with workouts and blog posts and I have not been super successful in my endeavors. Fingers crossed I am finally pulling myself together!

I am finally back on track completely with my workouts and food! I began Christmas Abbott’s Badass Body Diet almost two weeks ago and let me tell you, it’s amazing! Body fat that I have allowed to accumulate is really just falling off and I couldn’t be more stoked! We’re starting with a strict 21 days of a very specific macronutrient meal plan and no booze! I thought it was going to be daunting at first, but in fact it is super simple! So props to Christmas for publishing this book and showing us how to really get where we want to be!

On to the workouts!

We just returned from the states, super jet lagged, and spent the day food prepping for the upcoming week on the badass plan!

Another beautifully hot day here in Naples! Finally watching the Crossfit Regionals Competitions. Inspiring!

WOD: 800m Run (I did 1 mile because running is one of my weaker elements right now)

“Helen” – Modified
400m Run (I ran up and down the hill to our house, Ouch!)
21 KBS (35#)
12 Pull-Ups (I did Push-ups since I was outside the gate of the house. 

Timer didn’t start, so I am guessing somewhere around 17-18min

Run 2miles: 19:30

5 rounds for time of:

12 deadlifts, 155/105lbs – I did 75# since 110# is my one rep max.

9 hang power cleans, 155/105lbs – 75#

6 push jerks, 155/105lbs – 75#

Me: 14:21 – Andrew: 16:30 @ 135#

Because I was feeling irritated… 500m walk with 75lb barbell up our hill and back. Feeling much better now.
