Rambling Man

Whoa, whoa, whoa.  Hold your horses.  I know I said I would blog more.  I know I used to blog up to 6 times a week.  Usually when I stop blogging it means I have fallen off the wagon.  Well not this time.  I just got lazy with my blog....

So here I am, sitting in my living room, wearing my stretchy pants, thinking about how amazing and trying this last year has been.  I have done CrossFit every week since I started the first week of April.  I have gone at least 3 times a week.  Sometimes we make it to 5 days a week.  I've still not been able to do that elusive pull-up... but it will come.

My body is changing!  I know people can lift more than me and run farther than me, but this guy did a 355# back squat the other day.  He almost got a 405# dead lift. I did get 385.  I am able to crank out burpees and push ups. I did 200 air squats two weeks ago.  I am not sure you heard me... 200 air squats!  I love that I can do these things.  It took me a long time to get to where I am, and it is going to take me a long time to get to where I can do things RX every time, but guess what. I am moving forward.

I'm Jenn's Beast
I have lost about 50-55 lbs.  I am sitting around 300.  My goal is to lose about 80 more this year.  I've been really hit and miss with my diet.  It has always been the hardest for me.  I think I have it in check.  I am going to get more sleep.  Apparently that helps with weight loss..  

I am getting excited, BECAUSE this Saturday the 11th Jenn and I will be participating in a competition my box is putting on for all us members.  There aren't going to be standards, and things can be scaled.  This isn't a hardcore competition, just something we are doing for fun, and I am going to have fun doing it.

I'm also going back to school next week.  I'm trying to get into the Physical Therapy Assistant program.  I cannot wait.

This was a little bit of a ramble... cause I'm a rambling man. I plan on having structure and thought-out blogs down the road, but right now the first step to get me back into blogging is to sit down and do one... and then the magic happens.
