I have been doing Crossfit now for 18 months. In that time I have totally lost inches. I see it what I wear and in pictures. The pictures are a big deal for me because I usually HATE the way I look, so seeing full body pictures of me, and being like hey thats not horrible is a huge step.
While the changes I have made to my body are great, I am far more proud of what my body can do. I enjoy weight lifting, running, and I can now do box jumps (that was a big hill for me to climb) I have competed in 1 powerlifting meet, and now three Strongman events. Two of those three strongmen events have been in the past week. (yes I know I’m crazy). And I have done this while continue to try to advance in Roller Derby.
So here I am stuck between a rock and a squishy place. I want to drop body fat in a bad way. I am not so hung up on weight. Dropping from a size 20 to a 16 was only 15 pound difference. I want to be stronger, I want to have less fat to get in the way of my movements, regardless of what they are.
So what do I plan on doing about it? Starting Tuesday, September 23rd I am going to cut all processed foods for 90 days. I am going to do my best to report back here. For the like 5 of you who follow me feel free to hold me accountable. I am going going to drink at least a gallon of water a day. I am going to push my self harder at practice and at xfit. I already workout 5-6 days a week. But I am going go heavy and push for more reps at xfit.
So we will see…. Today’s stats 210lbs, size 16, Deadlift 356, Bench 150, Squat 235, Overhead Press 130, Atlas Stone 145
