Here's me with the group I did the Memorial Day Murph!!
Ok so I did complete the Memorial Day Murph. Then a few hours later I wanted to die. LOL So ok I finished last. And when I say "last" I mean...LAAAAAAAAAAST. LOL It took me 94:54 to complete it. But you know what? I finished it! My goal next year is to finish it in around an hour. By then I'll be doing CrossFit for a year so I fully believe I can do it! I think the part that slowed me down the most was the running. If it wasn't for that, I would've had a much better time. But like I said, it gives me something to work towards! Oh, and this Thursday I "graduate" from On-Ramp! Next week I start WODs! I'm excited about that!
So I think most people here know I had gastric bypass and my whole story with that. Today I went to see my gastric bypass doctor and told him about eating Paleo and CrossFit and everything I've been doing and I just felt like he was just disappointed that my weight loss has stalled. I told him what I'd been eating and he still asks me if I've been having any sugar, etc.. I was just thinking, "Really?" And he didn't understand why you can't eat legumes on Paleo. OMG it was like talking to a wall. I felt like I was defending myself! Argh! But I suppose he's probably not used to working with people like me either; as I view it as a tool and not a cure. And I set ambitious goals. I see him again in September and I'll be getting blood work done AND by then I'll be doing CrossFit for 5 months so my weight should start moving between now and then. Plus my bloodwork will rock! Still, frustrating and I know you guys will understand here. It felt like the fact I was losing body fat and doing all these things didn't matter because my WEIGHT didn't move. Ugh. Frustrating!
I hope everyone is having a happy, healthy day!
