So far so good... I started doing the 3 days on/ 1 days off crossfit schedule and have yet to waiver. This last weekend was insanely tough, because I also moved my sister for the entire weekend along with working out.
My first month's results:
Body Fat %:
Navy: Lost 2.62%
YMCA: Lost 6.68%
Lost 1.6 points
I gained a couple ounces between the last week and the month weigh in, but as a woman, who is in her 30′s that happens about once a month.
The pictures do not show a lot of difference yet, especially since I seem to not be standing in the same place (there were people in the common area that I prefer not to deal with during both times I took pictures). However, you can tell my shirt fits better.
My scale has been giving me a lot of trouble, so I ordered a new one after I weighed in for my month, it arrives today so I will re-weigh in today and change all of my info. My new scale will do muscle, water, fat and pounds so it will be much more accurate. It will for sure mess up this months calculations, but that is okay, I am so sick of the old one erroring out from me breathing...
I went back to Paleo, except I have left in whey protein and Greek yogurt. I will be staying Paleo for awhile, I will break for my cousins wedding next month, but that is the only planned cheat. I am feeling much better.
As for stress at home, I will likely be moving apartments in April, I will be moving to a bottom floor until that is on the outside so Murphy can run around and I can workout without bugging people.

I officially started trying to get back on track on the 1st of the year, I started eating better after the 3rd- this included eating 3 meals per day, no more soda, no junk food, and eating as clean as possible. I plan on going Paleo next month, but figured starting clean was a better was to detox. Other than my NYE run and WOD I didn't start working out until the 9th, but I have done WODs every day since.
I am toying with the idea of 3 days on, 1 day off, but we all know how hard it is for me to take days off LOL. Maybe if I make sure I am taking Murphy on long walks and getting out of the house so I am not being completely sedentary and keeping myself in a stressful situation 24-7, I think it will work. Tomorrow I will take a rest day as I ma sore as all get out!
I'm down 7lbs since the 1st and 6 in my first full week!
I looked at my old progress pics of the same weight and I looked more toned, I have lost so much muscle mass, UGH!
I have been training Murphy to sit through WODs while in his Service Vest so when I join a local box he will be able to do it there- hopefully.

Yesterday was a pretty bad day, Murphy cut his paw pretty badly and then he decided one of our neighbor's guests was a threat and he started barking and growling at him in front of one of the employees- not a good thing when these people want us gone. So needless to say when it was time for me to do my annual NYE run I was pretty stressed. But as I walked out into the freezing cold and started my Nike Sportband, everything went away with that first step. I felt like the old me, all of the stress just melted off of me. I ran as fireworks exploded all around me, it was pretty unreal.
So sad and hurt
Ready to run
I talked to them employee this morning and things seemed fine, until Murphy growled at my neighbor. I think it was likely being home with my drunken stepmom who screamed and yelled and threw things all week. I have no idea what to do, other than to contact a lawyer and get Murphy to a trainer ASAP!
In 2014 I plan on getting back in shape, to stop allowing this place to win, these terrible people to beat me... I will start working out again, get this weight back off and fix this. I am happier and healthier when I train so that is my plan.

The past few months in Leavenworth have been AWFUL! The people here are terrible! I am sadly not exaggerating, these people are vindictive, judgmental, hurtful and just plain terrible people. I have been under ridiculous amounts of stress since moving in and that is on top of just losing my therapy team, who I was bonded with- for the past 6 months I have been doing this on my own and it is a miracle that I am still standing. But I am.
The day before I left I got a tattoo of a Maya Angelou poem on my right arm "still I rise," I did this to remind me that no matter what comes my way I can get up and keep fighting. So today I will do just that, knowing that I will likely be knocked down again one day, but that I have the strength to get back up.
I have stopped working out and have been stuffing my face with crap to stuff my feelings, great plan I know! Thankfully, while I have gained weight, I have not gained as much as I could have. I can fix this I just have to knuckle down and do it. I rescued a German Shepard- Corgi mix a month or so ago and named him Murphy (he is 14 months and full grown) and I am training him to be my service dog, he will be a great running and hiking buddy.
