As of today, I am officially down 30 lbs since I started Crossfit at the end of January. I stepped on the scale, not expecting to see any change in numbers, but sure enough. 🙂 It doesn’t seem like a lot, especially considering it’s taken me about 7 months to do it, but that’s okay. I’m alright with slower weight loss, because that means less loose skin, and a healthier lifestyle change.
What a crazy experience it’s been so far… I am now about the same size that I was when Dave and I met 6 years ago, even though I’m still about 25-30 lbs heavier weight-wise, I’m wearing my old clothes from that time. Just goes to show you how much more muscle really weighs.
Because I started on a mostly Paleo diet, I am eating good food.. I am conscious about what I’m putting into my body to fuel it. And I REALLY do think of food as fuel now. In turn, Dave has really started paying attention to how he’s eating as well. My diet change has been a positive influence on him, and he wants to feel better, also. It’s been a win/win situation all around. 🙂
I am the healthiest I have ever been. I’m definitely the most confident and happiest I’ve ever been. I have better endurance, I’m strong, I’m seeing muscles show that I never knew would ‘show’ on me. Each day is a new surprise with my body, and each day it proves itself to me and what it’s capable of.
In turn, I listen to it and give it the rest it needs. If I don’t make it to 6-7 workouts a week, I realize that’s okay. If I only get to 5, that’s fine. I don’t like missing more than that, but I also don’t want to overwork myself, or worse, hurt or injure myself.
AND.. I wasn’t sore from the 50 GHD sit ups I did on Sunday.. wtf? Yeah… That means I just need to do more of them. 🙂
