WOD: 022709 Getting Back Into The Groove After A Short Break


First off, I would like to apologize for that lack of updates for the past couple of weeks. I recently got married to the love of my life, spent a great honeymoon in one of our favorite cities, Austin, TX., and currently, we are moving into our new place. Suffice it to say, I’ve be just a “little” busy.

However, the biggest nightmare, was switching from ATT U-verse, back to regular DSL, as U-verse is not available in the the area we just moved to, yet. Ughhhh! Anyhow, things are almost back to normal. As the famous phrase goes, “The honeymoon is over!” Now let’s get back to training hard!

Right before the wedding, I fasted for almost 10 days (minus my wedding day) on the Daniel Fast. I did it for mental, spiritual, and physical reasons. As a result, I feel revived, to say the least. I’ve really some to appreciate the raw eating lifestyle a lot more. However, I still consume a little meat. However, I must admit, it is “very” little, these days.

Meanwhile, with the combination of the fast, restructured eating habits, and a week off from training, I definitely see big improvements in my strength, energy, sleep, and overall mental, spiritual, and physical performance. here’s today’s workout of the day, along with my post workout shake recipe. Let me know what you think.

Since I took a little time off, I wanted to ease into this workout. Yet, I still wanted to go a little heavy. Therefore, I kept my rest periods to about 3 minutes, and my sets were low.

1. Kettlebell swings x 2 x 24kg x 1 min/side
2. Kettlebell cleans x 2 x 24kg x 5/side
3. Kettlebell Press x 3 x 24kg x 5/side
4. Kettlebell overhead squat x 2 x 24 kg x 5/side

1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of dried mint

    Hey bro. It feels good to be back. Glad you’re feeling better. Be sure to ease back in to your training. You want to give your immune system the freedom to get up to speed.

    The fast was great. I helped me in so many ways, especially with so many changes going on mentally, physically, and emotionally, lately. It definitely helped me stay balanced.

    Thanks for showing love on on http://budurl.com/sincereadtoocom, with the women’s weight loss series.
