Weekly Weight and CrossFit Update

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Hey Sparkers!

Quick check-in. Still eating paleo and doing CrossFit and couldn't be happier. I havent felt this good in a long while. I'm not really tracking food anymore - I eat when I am hungry and can have a a variety of things. Foods I've given up as part of Paleo: breads, grains, legumes, pasta, white potatoes, peanuts, and refined sugar. I eat all of the veggies, meats, healthy fats (there is such a thing) that I want. I have 1-2 servings of fruit a day. I used to think strawberries were tart and not very sweet. Now, they're amazing.

CrossFit has become part of my routine. The jump start classes are really great for learning proper form and technique. I'm starting to feel a difference in my body - I feel my core is stronger, and new muscles are starting to make an appearance. My clothes fit better. Sure, after a workout, such as this week's 2000m row + 70 assisted pushups, I am tired, sore, and sweaty. I'm also in the best mood. I'm sleeping better. I really wish I had made this change a year ago, but I think I had to journey here to get my confidence and courage.

I'm making progress on my weight loss and am building muscle. Here are my results this week.

Beginning weight (3/2011): 257 lbs
Last week's weight: 228.8 lbs
This week's weight: 225.8 lbs
Weight lost this week: -3.0 lbs
Total weight lost: -31.2 lbs

I'm determined to get out of the 220s soon!

Have a great and safe holiday everyone.
