    I haven't been writing in my journal lately. For one, there isn't a lot to add in terms of my health, weight, and exercise. My weight has frustratingly been hovering between 203 and 205. If...

    Dragonette: That's so nice of you to say. I'm amazed that you read through it all. I'm glad that my experience can be helpful. I always intend to post more photos of food and of me, but I never...

    I've been bad about posting my crossfit workouts.

    I haven't worked out this week, though, because my workout on Saturday was freakin crazy, and I'm still sore. We did Helen meets Karen. I've...

    I have a bunch of crossfit workouts to post. Good thing my box posts photos of the workout board every day!

    In the meantime, I thought I'd post here some things I put in a comment to one of...

    DoraV: yeah, it is very frustrating. I guess the ultimate test is feeling and looking better, and you do. That's what really counts. I sometimes have to remind myself of all of the health gains...

    I weighed 205 this morning. I think I'm retaining water ... probably because of my workout yesterday. For the last 6 or 7 weeks since I started crossfit, I've upped my carbs. Now I've cut them...

    I didn't go to crossfit on Wednesday, but I did go Friday and Saturday and then this morning.

    Friday's workout: We did the push jerk for our strength/skills segment and found our 1RM. I did:...

    We finally did back squats today. I like them SO much better than front squats. We found our 3RM, though I could have gone higher than what I did. I did 75 kg, but I'm sure I could have done 85 or...

    I had crossfit yesterday. We found our 1RM front squat. My problem is that my hand position was killing my wrist, so I wasn't able to get even close to my max rep for the squat itself because I...
  10. I thought I'd be sore from Friday, but I wasn't. ...

    I thought I'd be sore from Friday, but I wasn't. I did crossfit again on Saturday. It was Fight gone bad, which is the first "standard" WOD I've done, so it is nice to be able to compare. I did 230...

    I saw the WOD for this morning's (7:30am!) crossfit last night before going to bed. I lay awake for a little while dreading/eagerly awaiting the challenge. At one point, I wondered if this would...

    One more thing. The other day, my weight dropped down to 196! This was a new low. Now it is bouncing between 197 and 199, whereas before crossfit it was bouncing around the 200 to 203 range. So I...
  13. I'm not 100% over my cold, but I went to crossfit...

    I'm not 100% over my cold, but I went to crossfit yesterday anyway. It was fine. Fortunately, we only had a 400 m run with no running in the WOD.

    We worked on snatch squat. Wow, that is a...

    The weather has turned much cooler here, and my son got a cold the other day, and I came down with it Saturday afternoon. So I had to cancel crossfit this morning. If I'm feeling better tomorrow,...

    DoraV: Thanks for the kind words! I think I'm officially addicted to Crossfit.

    I forgot to post on my Wednesday workout, which was my first official regular crossfit workout. I posted earlier...

    My blood pressure returned to normal on Monday afternoon.

    I went to my final induction class last night. The workout was for time:

    100 m run at the beginning of each round
    15 - 12 - 9:...

    A little while ago I started feeling dizzy and lightheaded, but not from low blood sugar. It was a different feeling. So I went to the medical service at work, and my blood pressure was 98/77 and...
  18. DoraV: Going deep on your squat does mean you...

    DoraV: Going deep on your squat does mean you can't do as much weight, but you'll eventually build the strength in the full range of motion. You are right that I need to stop worrying about the...

    Last night's crossfit more than made up for the easy session on Tuesday. We warmed up with a 200 m run followed by running up and down 9 flights of stairs. We worked on deadlifts and overhead...

    Crossfit on Tuesday was fairly easy, but I'm still in the induction class. We worked on the jerk part of the clean and jerk. Then the workout was 10 minutes: AMRAP:

    5 Jerks (20 kg for me)
    10 KB...

    I have crossfit tonight. I'm looking forward to it. I just finished "pork"-loading. :) I've been hungrier since I've started crossfit, and at the moment I'm trying to eat when I'm hungry. I got a...

    Dora: I just looked up the filthy fifty. Yikes. That is brutal. I know the intensity of my WODs will go way up once I'm through the induction course, which is a little scary, but I'm looking...

    We got back to the house from the airport at about 3:30 yesterday, and I was there for 15 minutes and went to crossfit at 4:30. I hadn't eaten since 7:30 yesterday morning, but I did have time for a...

    Now that's a primal snack!

    So far Spain has been very paleo friendly.

    My crossfit class on Friday was brutal, mainly because of Crossfit on Thursday. We learned the overhead push press. WOD was:

    10 minutes, AMRAP:
    100 m sprint
    7 deadlifts (20 kg)
    7 push press...
