Just the day to day ramblings of our family...

Seven months ago DH started Crossfit and loved it! It really helped him get ready for the police academy. Now I am in my third week of the class and loving it too. I thought I would do some posts about it and what I'm hoping to get out of it.

First of all this is me now in my way too tight favorite dress...


I have about fifty to seventy pounds to lose to be at the weight I want. This dress is a size 14.
I wanted an 18 but it did not go up that high. This is my goal: to get into this dress and look really hot in it within three months. I would need to lose twenty or thirty pounds.
This is a very doable goel with weight watchers and crossfit.

So onto CrossFit. It is a boot camp style fitness gym that uses your body and weights to work you out. The workouts are usually one hour long and kick your but. We are in the Fundamentals class right now for four weeks. the fundamentals class lets you come in a little slower than you would if you attended regular classes.

They provide programs for all age groups that are both universally ADAPTABLE and SCALABLE to individual fitness goals. The objective is to enhance overall wellness and maximize physical performance over the long term

I love it. They let me row instead of run. I can't run because of past injuries to my shins. It is physically very painful for me to run, do jumping jacks, or put any kind of shok to my shins. Sucks.

I will definately update you guys on how this turns out. I have been bad about weight watchers but starting Monday it is all steam ahead in the diet department. Before we went on the cruise I lost a few pounds without the workouts so I can only imagine if I put them together.

Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!

Go CrossFit!

  1. Oh, I'm so impressed! I think so many people battle with "a few extra pounds" - but not many are so honest about it as you are! :-) Good luck with your goal - I'm sure you'll do it no problem! :-)

    D'you know, it's so funny but I just posted about doing exercise on my own, new blog! What a coincidence! ;-) Although I definitely don't have as much dedication & determination as you - I mean, I do exercise now coz it's so much a part of the society that we live in - but I wouldn't say that I LOVE it. And I don't know if I would be able to have your willpower & determination. I'm always looking for excuses to duck out! ;-) Anyway, if you haven't seen that post (it's called "When in Rome..."), you might find it entertaining! :-)
