I loved this picture and wanted to share.  Even though I felt like crap yesterday, going to CrossFit four times in one week makes me feel like a badass.  (Watch out, got a badass over here...)  I look forward to October when I can work on going more.

Yesterday sucked.  I'm so tight that even liquids can cause issue, though I can do water fine.  At the end of the day, I was able to eat a little something which was nice.  I just had my coffee this morning and I'm afraid today is going to be similar.  I wonder if it is the weather?  Since I was able to get nutrition and water, I'm going to give it until Monday.  If I'm still like this though, I will have to get some taken out.  But hopefully, it will get back to normal on its own.

CrossFit was great this morning, as usual.  We did overhead squats and push jerks.  Overhead squats are hard because you have the barbell above your head and it is a real balancing act.  As you squat, that barbell wants to move and knock you off balance.  I did 5 sets of 5 at 55, 60, 65, 70, & 75#.  It had been so long since I did a push jerk, I didn't even remember how.  I did 3 sets of 3 at 55, 75, & 85#. 

I saw this today and I thought it was an excellent comment.  I have A LOT of interests and most of the time, they eventually fall by the wayside.  But I'm committed to CrossFit right now and I like that.  I struggle with my food.  I always have and I guess I always will at varying degrees.  But I can fight from this angle too and it makes me feel powerful instead of helpless.

In the past, three days of limited eating would have been the perfect excuse to avoid working out.  But now?  I work out in the mornings, so it doesn't really feel any different.  No excuses!  And while I may have not lost a lot of weight yet, after just a few weeks back, I absolutely notice a difference in my body. 

Have a great weekend everyone!!

I love both of those photos! And I hope you get feeling better. I don't know exactly how you feel, but I do know it's NO fun to be feeling icky. Hugs to you!

Love how committed you have must be noticing a difference because you are rocking it!

My husband made a comment to me last night that stuck with me (every now and then he IS useful). He said "At some point, the exercising and food stop being about losing weight and start being about being healthy." He's absolutely right. :)

I struggle with the food as well, I guess we all do. At this point if I wasn't exercising I would have gained most of my weight back instead of some of it!

I've been keeping up with you but did I miss that you got a fill? If not, I wonder why the tightness all of a sudden.

Hopefully things will improved.

See you soon.

Hero!!! You my love are indeed a Badass and I have always thought so.

The overhead squat sounds redic! And again badass you.

I completely agree with that quote about commitment because I have had many interests through the years and they just drift around, I quit, then go back, quit then go back...But fitness is part of my life and I'm committed to keeping it going!

I hope it's just the weather - those fills are costly! There's actually a place Fluffy posted about where they do $50 fills in Dallas, if that's an option. :)
