I've embarked on a super low-carb eating plan to try and drop a few pounds.  I expected to lack energy because of it, but oddly, I feel fine.  In fact, I had plenty of energy this morning! 

For time:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 rep rounds for time of:
Right arm dumbbell snatch
Left arm dumbbell snatch
Toes to bar
Double unders (reps x 5)(50-45-40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5)

My time:  25:23, w/25# DB

This WOD was super tough, but I loved every minute of it.  Once we got started my Double Unders were surprisingly decent.  Had a few sets of 20 today, which is awesome for me.  I do love that new rope - it makes a difference once I relax. Of course, I had my share of misses and whipping myself with the rope in random places (face, hands...yeah...ouch).  The rounds of 10 through 6 were a complete beat down, but I just had to focus on the short rounds and push myself to keep going.  Most of my rest was between sets of double unders.  Just my usual gasping for air.

Strength today was a dumbbell snatch ladder for points.   30 seconds at each station for max reps. 
 Stations were worth increasing points:

20: 1 point x 12 reps = 12
25: 2 points x 10 reps = 20
30: 3 points x 10 reps = 30
35: 4 points x 8 reps = 32
40: 5 points x 5 reps = 25
45: 6 points x 4 reps = 24
50: 7 points x 3 reps = 21

My total points:  164
