Goal setting for October

Last night I went to crossfit at Ironspider Crossfit in Salem. We did:

Deadlifts: 115# 5 sets of 3 reps
Handstand wall walk ups
5 rounds of:
15 hand release push ups
10 kettlebell swings (20#)
5 back squats (45#)
Time: 12:27 minutes
Tonight my plan is to try out hot yoga for the first time… I am not sure if it is actually Bikram or not- but we shall see! I am hoping I will make it- it is variable if I will make it based on which train I can get on after work and if it actually runs on time.
In a quest to be more healthy I am setting a few goals.

• Only drink alcoholic beverages 1 time a week (bye, bye wine with dinner…)

• Practice more mindful eating. Think, “Am I hungry?”

• Goal to walk at least 4 miles a day

• Work out at least 4 days a week.

Do you have any goals you are working on? What keeps you motivated?

This weeks planned activities include:
Crossfit Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and Yoga on Tuesday.


  1. You joined crossfit?? That's awesome! I've tried it a few times and I def think it will make anyone get in shape-quick! Can't wait to hear more about it

  2. Yea- I love it! I have been sore the next day every time- which I love- I feel like I am actually working. I joined on a Livingsocial deal, but I am hoping to keep going. It is expensive, but its like getting a personal training session every time. Where did you try it??

  3. thats awesome! I tried it at the Healthy Living summit, and I did a free trial at Crossfit Boston. We did a 5 min WOD and I was sore for 3 days haha

  4. Ha- yea- it will do that to you! I went to crossfit two days in a row last week and couldn't lift my arms on the third day (in a good way of course). I am really sad my livingsocial deal is ending this week! I need someone to kick my butt.
