I almost puked — Xfit JT and followup workout

Today was my first REAL Xfit workout.

I survived.

No max strength today, just intensity.  The WOD was JT — vertical pushups, ring dips, pushups — 21/15/9.
My form quickly fell apart, but I stuck with it and finished in 8:23.

Then he had us do a followup workout with a 6 or 8 lb med ball:
20/Wall balls, 15/med ball slams, 10/rotations, sprint x3.

I nearly died. The wall balls killed me.  My form was awful, no matter how hard I tried.  On the 2nd two rounds, I didn’t even make it to 20.  I was proud I made it to 15 on the 3rd round.  We didn’t time that one.
We finished with planks and some stretching. 

I was shaking for hours afterward.  My goal the rest of the day was recovery food:

Oatmeal and banana at breakfast, followed up by a hard-boiled egg.
Yogurt with berries and granola at mid-morning.
Small cheese sandwich, tomato soup and strawberries at lunch.
Cantalope and apple slices with almond butter at mid-afternoon. / Gingerbread muffin satisfied a sweet craving.
Red sweet potato curry with bok choy, tofu and rice at dinner.
LOTS of WATER

I’m striving to eat most of my calories from frutis and veggies, protein and fat — I am not cutting out bread/grain carbs — I’m just not focusing on them.
