Day 1 crossfit...for real

Kettlebell swings
toe to bar (I did sit ups)
box jumps (I did step ups)
jumping lunges (I did air squats)

I do believe I am getting better at those air squats. I did 195 total for all. I amnow dying. I cannot lift my arms and I am still shaking. I should have eaten but feel like puking still. Off to work.

2 days done

So crossfit is going well. The coaches are great. My form is good. My endurance sucks. I can't do burpees at all. I am so sore. I will get better. I will succeed. I just may not be able to wear my heels Thursday at the Christmas party. So far very happy.

It does hurt to be different than the other crossfitters. The coach is having me modify the workout. They do 12 burpees. I do 6. I know it is for the best. I just do not like being different. I feel like a Wuss. But it is ok. I will get stronger. Everyone else is in much better shape. I guess when I surpass them later it will feel like redemption. For now, I day at a time.

Today Is the day.

I weighed myself. I measured myself. I packed a bag full of gym clothes. I am ready for crossfit. Of course, someone brought in coffee cake. MUST RESIST !

Have I mentioned how excited I am to start crossfit!!?!! I start on Monday. Got a welcome email today. This is going to be great. Going to go to half price books to see if I can get some paleo cookbooks. Tonight's exercise is trampoline. Should be fun. I have to start running soon. Tried to join DRC. But the transaction failed. Will try again tomorrow. Half training starts with a race on the 7th. That shows what my weak ass beginning pace will be. So running on T, Th, S and crossfit on M, W, F. I am so excited for this next chapter. More excited that I will not be morbidly obese for Ireland. :)

Day 1 over

I did well yesterday. I only strayed from paleo with a few potatoes. They were already in the split pea soup so I ate them. I will freeze the rest this evening. I also had a beer. Small steps right. Tonight I may go play volleyball. It is really cold so maybe not. I am such a wimp.

Long time

It has been a very long time since I blogged. Medical problems and injuries have delayed the half. I think that my weight is a problem. I will continue to have an issue as long as I try to do this morbidly obese. So today I am easing into paleo eating. I have to ease into it since there is no way I can go cold turkey on the diet sodas. Then on Monday, I start cross fit. I am very nervous. I am competitive in nature so I am sure that I will Excel. I just know that I am going to hurt daily for the duration.

So I am at my all time high weight wise. I weighed myself this morning. Tonight I will tape myself. Keeping a log will help since I gain muscle rather quickly. I am looking forward to this process. I am looking forward to fitting better in my plane seat for Maine and Ireland trips coming up. I am looking forward to buying a beautiful evening gown for next years Christmas party. I am looking forward to feeling better during next years tubing trip.

Now for the half, I am doing cross fit 3 days a week. The other 3 days I will run. For now I will do it at the gym near my office. Once my roommate moves out I will do it at home. Going to turn the extra room into a gym with a tv and treadmill and dvd player.  At some point I may just do crossfit every day. But for now 3 days a week is a start. I will try and update often.
