Essentially, I am depleting my body of carbs, starches, and sugars in an effort to force it into ketosis, to force it to burn fat instead of the food I’m eating for fuel. The first day was the hardest, but after that it was no big deal, and so far today has been great too.…Details
So I went and got my bodpod done again. My results were identical to my previous one in January, except I weighed 2 more pounds this time than before. My lean body mass is still at 134, perfect. I also decided that since I did my bodpod, that I’d go ahead and knock off the…Details
Today was our 2nd bring a friend day of August, but I didn’t bring any friends. 🙁 They’re all at CF, or they’ve all decided they have no interest in being a part of that aspect of my life. Ah well, I’ve quit asking people. So Dezi and I decided to do our own little…Details
I thankfully made it back into the gym after several days of packing, moving, throwing away, sorting, organizing and setting back up. We relocated one office space to a new unit in our current building, and lucky us, we get to do it all over again with our other office space, which is also going…Details
Alright.. seeking advice from my Crossfitter friends! What do you all suggest for leaning out/losing fat while still maintaining your strength? I’ve just about had it with myself. Some info: I eat pretty well, mostly paleo. I am gluten free. I eat some fruit, some sweet potato, a little dairy/cheese (cream or kerrygold in coffee),…Details
Lately after finishing certain benchmark and Hero WODs, I’ve found myself saying, “next year I’ll RX this one..” Which turned into me wanting to make a list of goals to work towards and then put it out here, so I can attempt to hold myself accountable. Next Year I will RX the following WODs: Murph…Details
So let’s talk about how July is almost over. Like this week and we’re done. Time just flies by now, and I think it’s because we’re old, but I don’t feel any different! Unless I worked out for the first time in a week and then go and sit still for an hour, and then…Details
I hadn’t done Hero Holleyman since last year, and the last time I did it, I finished in 34:54. I did all the same weights, movements as last year, but THIS year.. I finished in 25:26. Over 9 minutes faster than last year, which was an incredibly awesome feeling! Holleyman is: 30 RFT5 wall balls…Details
I tweaked my lower back and the pain is coming from to the left of my spine, right above my tailbone. It’s not muscular, it’s more like nerve-ish pain. Just got back from the chiropractor who confirmed my suspicions. He said it was my L5 S1. Took some x-rays, gave me some good stretches, did…Details
I went in Sunday to work on my back squats. I NEEDED a PR! My last PR was 255, and this time I tried 275 (twice) and didn’t get low enough. I dropped the weight to 265 and nailed it. YEAH. Good enough for the board, good enough for me!
Next time we’ll get 275.
