Athlete: Abigail Carnes
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat whatever is convenient
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
The only real restriction I have on my diet is gluten due to a gluten allergy. Other than that, I eat pretty much everything. I try to eat healthy, but definitely have many "cheat" days or meals. I have my weaknesses. I am not a picky eater at all and will eat just about anything! I love unique foods. Toast with peanut butter is a good pre-workout for me. I am just now starting to get into foods for recovery, work, rest, etc. I don't take any supplements.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I also meet a group to run (endurance) about once a week.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I played softball in college.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I went because my husband started going and loved it, and he thought I would like it too. So I joined CrossFit Bellator and workout there. We also try to do some workouts on our own when we cannot make it to the gym that day.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
The multiple workouts is not a CrossFit workout. My additional is meeting my group to run about 4 miles, taking a class at the YMCA like yoga or doing the elliptical on my own then doing a WOD that same evening. I COMPLETELY rest probably 5 or 6 days. They are not always scheduled because sometime things come up. Many times my rest day is a Friday or Sunday.
