Wanna hear something funny?

Haha… found this today… If you do use medication (Levothyroxine) to help supplement your thyroid hormone production, then you should avoid these foods because they can block the body’s ability to absorb the medication. In the end, that leaves you (and maybe your doctor) wondering why you feel so badly when you take your medication …

UGH

UGH… that pretty much sums up how I feel. The Whole30 plan is NOT liking me AT ALL. I have been completely strict for 7 days and as felt terrible for the last three. The last three days… Friday, Saturday and Sunday – makes for a fun weekend. Seriously. I have been bloated and gross …

Big Cauliflower FAIL

I started this challenge (no grains, dairy or sugar) knowing I would not be able to have some of my favorite foods, pizza being one of them. Traditionally we have pizza on Friday night. I have been wanting something warm and creamy (even though I cannot have cheese!). I set out to explore the World …

Really want some chips! (not)

I do believe I am completely mental sometimes! Over the past month I have been slowly weaning myself from wheat, other grains, cheese and eggs and doing really well. I have had any real cravings, even as I got really strict last week I was ok. For the past 10 days I have been completely, …

Stupid bra

Four days later…. yes, it has been four days since my 220 push-ups and guess what? My triceps are still so sore that it is still a pain (literally) to get my sports bra off after a workout! My left triceps is sore, but a normal sore. My right tricep, I believe, is pulled or …

You got 30 days?

On September 8th I posted that I was doing a “Primal Challenge” from a website that was based on this new (to me) concept of primal eating – only eating whole foods – nothing processed, etc. This was in line with what I have been moving towards for the past year, but with a twist. …

The day after…

I am actually typing this Saturday morning, which is TWO days after…. I have to say – I am still so sore it is insane. My arms were immediately sore after the workout and just got increasingly sore as the night, then the next day, progressed. It was still hard to get out of the …

The real deal!

I finally made the leap. I was brave and went to my first class at a Crossfit gym! It was great – just like I pictured it would be and better. Why better, well, I pictured it full of young, hot, fit 20’s somethings just killing the workouts while I floundered in the corner…. it …

Tabata WOW!

Tonight I had an awesome workout. It was a LONG day at work and I was really looking forward to doing my Crossfit. The plan was warm-up, mobility, then squats and sit-ups. I decided to really start focusing on squats a couple of times a week because the are so good for running. I really …

Trying to hard?

You know, I work pretty hard when I work out. I have even started grunting, when needed, to get the last few reps out. I have been dripping sweat on my exercise mat and it feels pretty good. My push-ups are getting lower everyday – I am still on my knees but the Crossfit video …
