You Can Go Hard Or You Can Go Home

My name is Chrissy. I'm 27 years old. When I was in high school, I weighed 270 pounds. When I graduated high school, I weighed 150 pounds.

I've kept most of it off, but I tend to yo-yo with 15-20 extra pounds because I love food so much. I'm also a stress-eater. So basically I eat when I'm happy AND when I'm sad.

I go to CrossFit Bel Air- the BEST box ever!!!!- and joining CrossFit was the best decision I ever made. Not just for my body, but for my mind as well, and ...

Thanks for the comment!! I f'ing love honey badgers. In this show they were also chasing lions! They are scrappy little things!

Also, I love your new hair! Super cute! I'm so glad you found Cross Fit and are enjoying it. I hope to try it someday if I ever get the time and courage!

Thank you so much for your reply! :D
It takes me a long time to be able to do stuff too hehe, I will try not to take 2 years to try out Crossfit... hehe. I will try and do something super soon and let you know! I might email them first.

Yeah the price is a little more than other places but I think for how different it is and if I enjoy the environment want to stick with it, then it's not all that expensive for it's worth. :)

Hey Chrissy!
I was just wondering if it would be okay to pick your brain a little bit?
I've noticed my city has a Crossfit gym and I was just wondering... how did you start Crossfit? I get a little bit anxious going to places alone... did you go it alone? Were people friendly? I'm thinking of trying to build the courage to attend a beginners or women's only class... but I'm really scared and although I often do Crossfit style workouts, I'm still.. well, just scared, of everything, everyone, lol.
Any tips you could give me? emoticon

Crazy! I have a semi slipped vertebra so the idea of it slipping one way and the back again isn't possible for me. I'm glad you are learning so well how to do the kinds of workouts you want AND keep your back happy.
