I ❤ my scale & CROSSFIT!

Two things I never thought I'd say.

Well I got on my scale today for some damn reason. I usually avoid it like the plague.

Long story short -- my weight today is 282.2 which puts me at -35.8 pounds!

ALSO, I found a blog from a mama who does crossfit. My neighbor across the street is a crossfit instructor and I have been intrigued but there is no way in hell you could get my chunky ass over there to work out with all those super fit people! Anyway, I was excited when I found her blog and I did the first workout today. It was:

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
      5 Shoulder Press
     10 Deadlifts     15 Box jumps

I just realized that it says to do 5 shoulder presses and I did 8 - Look at me, overachieving on accident HAHAH! I used the 5 pound dumbbells I have and they rocked my world.  I was breathing all kinds of crazy and my heart was racing.  IT. WAS. FREAKING. AMAZING!

I think I am sold. She does a workout of the day every day. So I am going to try it EVERY DAY for 1 week and see what I think. SOMEONE HOLD ME TO THIS!!! 

Tomorrow is my adjustment! I'm excited for some restriction! - I was tempted to eat everything in my house today, but I did not.  I stayed under 1300 calories and most of it was protein and I feel pretty damn proud of that.



  1. That is a great shirt! Congrats on your weight loss!

    1. Thanks so much!! I may try to make a shirt like it once I hit 50 pounds lost! I'm thinking that would be a fun goal!!

  2. Crossfit intimidates the hell out of me. I can't wait to read more about your experiences with it! :)

    1. Me too!!! I'm hoping since its kind of a tones down version, I will be able to do it all! Also, since the goal is to do as many as you can in a set amount of time or to complete the entire exercise regardless of time, it lets you work at your own pace and that makes it a lot less intimidating to me!!!

  3. Cross fit scares me, those people are nuts. What is today's WOD?
    I love that shirt!!

    1. Today's WOD:
      21-15-9 reps of:
      Bench dips
      Crossfit sit-ups

      Time yourself to completion! However long it takes is however long it takes!

      I'm going to do it when I get home this evening :)
