Update - Crossfit!

Monday, February 27, 2012

Hey everyone, I suppose it is time for an update! I won't go into the rollercoaster/trainwreck the last few months have been but things are looking better! I randomly bought a groupon a while ago and finally decided to redeem it at this place called Faction. I had never heard of it and wasn't sure what I was getting into so I got signed up for the fundamentals class that started in the beginning of February.

From the website I could tell that it was going to be hard. I hadn't even ever heard of crossfit before! But I was hopeful that even if I was way farther out of shape than everyone else that it would provide the motivation and right level of challenge for me.

Well I am now on my fourth week, and I love it! I mean LOVE it. Few things in the world are good enough for me to wake up in the 6 o'clock hour by my own choosing, and this is one of them. The scale hasn't moved, but I feel fantastic, so I am imagining that I have lost some fat but also gained muscle from all the workouts.

So I signed up for three more months! Wish I could do more, but that is all that I can afford right now. But I will be doing this from now until June 15th. Hopefully I will have some pretty awesome progress pictures to post by then!

Because I have been introduced to crossfit, it then follows that I have also been introduced to Paleo. I am trying to fit more fruits and vegetables in and less bread, but I am not sure that I want to be eating so much meat. So I am kind of designing my own diet loosely based on paleo haha. We bought a juicer and I love it so that will be a great way to help us get in our veggies.

That's all the update I have for now!

    Way to go!! Isn't it amazing to LOVE fitness? And to actually WANT to get out of bed to do it?? New discovery for me, too, and I'm still in shock.

    Congratulations - I can't wait to see your progress!
