Ugh! I meant to update sooner! I didn't realize it had been so long... Oopps. LOL
So Crossfit is going well! Today started my second week. My stomach was killing me on Thursday so I made it up on Sunday, which means I went to CrossFit on Saturday, Sunday, and today! I'm really glad I have tomorrow off, I can rest. Yay!! I am really enjoying it though, even though it's very hard, difficult, and sometimes I want to die, but I love it. Everyone is so encouraging and great and I'm pushing my body to do things it could never do before. It's awesome! The only issue I'm having is that my weight loss has stalled. My chiropractor/trainer told me it's because I'm gaining muscle but I'm losing fat so that's why I'm not showing a loss yet. He said it'll take some time. So as well as tracking my weight, I'm also going to start tracking my body fat. I think that will help.
So Paleo is also going well. I did stop eating potatoes and as a result I went through serious carb withdrawal. I was like a crack addict! All I wanted was pizza and tacos. So, with the help of my chiro and some recipes I found on the internet, I made Paleo pizza! I was so proud I took a picture. Here it is!
It was absolutely heavenly!! I had leftovers for lunch. I'm definitely going to make it again! I also found a recipe in one of my Paleo cookbooks for Paleo brownies. Hubby really wanted me to make them, so I did. I was a little skeptical but they turned out awesome!! IMO they tasted as good as a "regular" brownie! And I'm not eating them all the time either, which is major progress. LOL I'm finding out you can make just about anything Paleo, you just have to plan ahead and actually MAKE it and not use convenience foods. My birthday isn't until December but I'm trying to figure out how I can make a birthday cake. No more ordering cakes for me! (Or much of anything for that matter! LOL) I know I'll find something and it will be pure awesomeness, and I won't feel guilty for eating it!! I feel we're really getting the hang of Paleo now and really starting to have fun with it. Now it's more like an adventure!! Since starting CrossFit and Paleo I've stopped 2 of my medications and am now only taking 1. It feels great! If I can just stop taking the stuff to help me sleep, I'm home free!
Oh and on a more personal front, I'm going back to school starting this summer! I'm really excited about it. I'm going to finish my degree in graphic design. I'm currently trying to get into work study, keep your fingers crossed for me! When all is said and done, I want to get into either web design or advertising. Or both!
Well I think that's everything!! I hope everyone is having a happy, healthy day!
