So I started crossfit and finished with crossfit before I got a chance to write about it. First of all crossfit is awesome. I saw the fastest results of any workout program I’ve ever done and it was fun even though it was incredibly hard and grueling. I was getting my butt kicked daily by girls way smaller than me and while I was laying a puddle of my own sweat they were doing more excercises but it was still great and not embarrassing at all. I honestly went from being dead tired after running a 1/4 of a mile to running 2.5 miles in about 30 minutes without any walking and that was all in about 2 weeks. Before that I probably hadn’t run a mile straight without walking in almost a decade. The reason I’m done with crossfit has nothing to do with crossfit itself but more with the schedule of the crossfit program here and my schedule. Crossfit is only offered at 5:45 AM, Noon and 5:30PM. I was going to 5:45 AM but I just got a job bartending in town so that won’t work for me anymore unless I plan on sleeping in 2-3 hour spurts which probably wouldn’t be good with working out as intensely as necessary. I’ve been off crossfit for a couple weeks and can already feel the gains I made slipping away so I think I’m going to get a personal trainer that works better with my schedule because the University offers personal training at 12$ a session which is pretty amazing. I still plan on getting in great shape just going to try to get some sleep while I’m at it. But for the record I’m the lightest I’ve been since High School and had 2 weddings last weekend and every person I ran into was amazed at how I looked. I guess that’s what losing over 50 lbs will do for ya.

My last post I talked about my fears I have about moving to school but almost every new thing brings fear along with it as well as just waking up in the morning comes with a certain amount of fear. I fight this fear and get through it in a couple … [Continue reading]
I'm moving in 8 days and yes I'm scared. I'm scared that since I can't bring my dog to school, that I have raised from a puppy and spent almost everyday with for the last four years, I will be lost without my best buddy. I'm scared I won't find a … [Continue reading]
I was torn on what to name this first post because I hate the term blog and bloggers (especially food bloggers) but my other thought was "The Journey begins" but also hate when people refer to their life as a journey so I stuck with blog because it … [Continue reading]
