Two approaches:
Sets of 8-12 reps per move. 2-3 sets.

As many as you can do in X number of seconds.

I'd say shoot for five moves per circuit. If you want to mix it up, make some flash cards by writing names of moves on note cards, pick five cards, bam. There's your workout.

Squats.
Lunges.
Burpees.
Mountain climbers.
Push ups and/or planks.
I like shoulder raises and rotator raises because I happen to think my shoulder muscles are sexy and want them even more defined; those are easy if you have dumbbells.
Dumbbell rows, great if you have weights but you can also do with just about anything heavy you can pick up.
Tricep dips. Tricep kickbacks, could be done with most heavy things like dumbbell rows.

Here's a big list!

Thanks guys! I really like the flashcard idea, definitely going to do that.

I did it - I squatted my goal weight in BodyPump tonight.
Let's not discuss how difficult it was to pop the bar back over my head AFTER squats were done because that is irrelevant.
The point is I HIT THE GOAL.

I'm super stoked, I did 10 chin ups in a row yesterday! And then 8 more after a little breather.

I've been doing 3 sets of five pretty regularly, but I hadn't pushed myself to see how many I could just do consecutively for a while.

I've really noticed a change in my arm and ab muscles since I started doing chin ups regularly.

I am LOVING CrossFit. I can't imagine liking a workout more. I actually left my class yesterday, and already started to wonder what my next workout would be like.

The downside, my Nikes are definitely hurting my feet. I'm going to go back to some of my minimalist shoes and see if that helps. The arch of my foot is in a lot of pain today and that makes me sad and uncomfortable.

This is great news. You've found an exercise program that you love and look forward to. If exercise is something you dread or don't enjoy, you won't do it. Congratulations!

Barring some injury or other issue, it's possible that your shoes simply don't fit right. I have plantar fasciitis and when I wear ill fitting shoes it's greatly exasperated. The good news is that it's treatable. I do a bunch of stretches daily and keep a frozen water bottle around so I can ice it after a workout. The pain can be debilitating, but I've gotten to the point over the last month or so where it's mostly just annoying.

I lift in minimalist shoes! I know some people even lift in KSOs and the like. Go for it. Especially since CrossFit involves movement too, not just lifting, I think you'll be more than fine in the minimals.

I was 229.4lbs a few nights ago.

Did actual, proper grocery shopping. Have been eating pretty well (aside from a free churro and free brownie thing from Taco Bell, and some movie popcorn yesterday).

224lbs as of a few minutes ago. Eff yeah.

I haven't started C25K again or bodyweight workouts yet, but I'm planning to in the next week or so. Trying to find time to sit down and make a schedule.
