On Feb. 1, we did a WOD that was going to be repeated a month later to see if we had achieved any strength gains/speed gains in the WOD.
It was an "AMRAP" workout (AMRAP stands for "as many rounds as possible" within a fixed time)
The WOD
8 Front Squats (I did 75 lbs again)
10 pushups (on the knee pushups)
12 box jumps (jumped on the tire, 18" high)
AMRAP in 15 minutes
I did 9 rounds with 1 minute to spare, back on Feb. 1, I did 8 rounds.  I improved, but I think I could have done better if I hadn't started to slow down.  I wasn't feeling bad or anything, I was just afraid of pushing myself too hard and the front squats were getting heavier!  I keep saying it and not doing it but I really need to spend some time on my front, back and overhead squats both with getting full depth and heavier weights.  It kind of sucks that I can't even do a squat with 130-135 lbs (my body weight) yet.  This workout just indicates that I can do better and will strive to get stronger.

Yesterday's food log:
Breakfast: 2 eggs with 1/4 cup black beans and 1/4 cup chopped brocolli with chai
Lunch: Tuna steak with asparagus and baked sweet potato fries
Snacks: duncan hines brownies with walnuts and 8 oz skim milk, a Caramello bar (220 cal version) and a 20 oz Diet coke
Dinner: 1/2 cup black beans with salsa and cheese with lemon/lime seltzer water (I really stuffed myself on the brownies and wasn't that hungry)
