Progress! Slow and steady.

Hey everyone! I’m back to give some updates on my weight loss progress.

I’ve been doing CrossFit for about 3 months now and I’ve probably lost about 5lbs. Not a significant loss, but I’ve slimmed down A LOT. My clothes are starting to fall off my body, especially around my waist. And I’m LOVING IT! Here is a picture of me at the exact same weight, about 9 weeks in between pictures.

In both pictures I am 170lbs. This is exactly why the scale doesn’t necessarily matter. While I am gaining muscle and losing fat, I am slimming up so my weight stayed the same. But even though I haven’t lost weight in this picture, I FEEL better and healthier!

Since this picture 2-3 weeks ago, I’ve lost another 3 lbs.

My routine lately as been to go to CrossFit 4 days a week, and after each class take a mile jog. It’s definitely tough, but I need the rest of this fat to fall off me! That can only happen with hard work and dedication.

I have a long way to go still, but I know I will get there!

Weight Loss Challenge!

Hi everybody! I have been slacking in my blog posts lately, but I’m back and so is my exercise routine! Just a few updates on where I’ve been the past few months.

Late last year I was diagnosed with having a Cerebral Spinal Fluid Leak coming from my skull and leaking through my nose. If not treated it could have lead to Meningitis. I had to go through numerous doctors appointments, CT scans, dye injection into my spine, and finally surgery on my skull through my nose. I’m glad to say that surgery went well and I am leak free! I feel good and I’m back to my normal self. *yay*

Luckily without working out for almost 5 months I only gained 3-4 pounds. W00t! Now I’m ready to lose the rest of this weight!

I recently signed up for a Groupon deal for 20 classes of CrossFit. I am also involved in my friends’ weight loss challenge as well as their Fit Camps held every Sunday! So my schedule looks like so:

Sun: Fit Camp
Mon: Rest or Cardio day
Tues: CrossFit
Wed: Rest or Cardio day
Thurs: CrossFit
Fri: CrossFit
Sat: CrossFit or Rest Day

I am currently fluctuating between 168 and 171 and my goal is still to reach 145 lbs.

I am motivated more than ever to lose this weight! Let’s do this!

Oh! Also if you have any tips or advice on meal plans I would LOVE IT! I need to figure out what foods to eat and what meals to make.

Thanks for listening!
