Day 1 in the Books

Day 1 was quite successful.  Now I just need to do that about 300 more times.  :-)  In addition to CrossFit in the morning, I did a 2 mile jog walk at lunch.  Also I ate very well and in the evening I went Support Group.

I will say that even though I ate well all day, I did have to use a few of my activity points (I'm tracking using WW) and I was still somewhat hungry most of the day.  I think that it showed me that my next fill is needed.

On my way home from Group last night, I called my mom (to keep myself from thinking about food) and as we were talking she mentioned how I hadn't been to Group in a long time.  When I thought about it, I realized that it had been almost a year.  I think I went once after my plastic surgery last year, but then after that, there was always an excuse not to go.  Don't get me wrong, getting from work over to the meeting, then getting home and packing for the next day, eating and getting to bed on time for CrossFit curfew is challenging.  But once a month, I should be able to do that.  And it helps keep my head in the game. 

I stopped blogging in October, so about 7 or 8 months ago.  I started gaining weight 14 months ago.  I think after a few months, I just didn't want to face it, so I stopped my accountability measures (group and blogging.)  I tried several half-assed times to start things up.  I even started a new blog at one point, but my heart just wasn't in it.  It is my Never-Ending Quest for a reason. 

I also stopped my progress pictures in April 2012.  Methinks there is a pattern here.  I will commit to starting that back up at the end of this month.  I might move to quarterly at some point, but I really need all the accountability I can get apparently. 

Food plan:
B - coffee, egg beaters with mushrooms & cheese
L - homemade chicken salad with crackers
S - prosciutto wrapped mozzarella & sugar free popsicles
D - Inside of two fish tacos & a small amount of rice & beans

I went to CrossFit this morning and we did Snatches, Snatch Balances and GHD sit ups.  After a 1/2 mile run and various warm up calesthenics, of course...

1.  Snatches - we did 2 Snatches 10:00 OTM (on the minute) and I used 65# which is slightly more than in this video.  I love how I react at the end, all ain't no big thing.

2. Snatch blance - we did 5 sets of 2 and I used 60#.  I don't have a video of myself here.
3.  GHD situps - we did 50 of them and they were supposed to be weighted, but I decided that my extra pounds were enough.  Ha!  These are really tough on the lower back and I didn't want to hurt myself. And just to be clear, I was happy if I made parallel.  I do remember being better at these a year ago, so I have work to do to get where I was before. 

Today WILL be another fabulous and successful day.  See you tomorrow!

Yay for you! It is the first steps that are the hardest.
Yeah, I didn't give any cross fit details because I didn't pay attention to what anything was called...... I will try better next time.

I completely agree about breaking our patterns and how things go in the opposite direction.

I'm there also. I don't blog much, read here and there and I too can see a change when I stop doing what I know is helpful.

I'm happy you are taking the steps to get back on track.
