This is me after 90 days of crossfit. I took the first picture after my intro class. I feel like it’s a noticeable difference. I have lost 8 lbs on the scale, but I think the number isn’t the best way to describe what has changed. (I wish I had taken measurements but I didn’t.) I’m probably as toned as I was when I finished Basic training and I’m stronger than I’ve ever been. It feels great! My son is about 36 lbs (an empty barbell I tell myself) and most people think he’s really heavy. I used to; but now he doesn’t feel so bad – I can even throw him up into the air. He loves that I can do that since no one else does.
I started crossfit to get stronger for my running but have since stopped running to focus on crossfit. I used to cry to my husband that I couldn’t lose weight, despite running 3-4 days a week, 8 miles on Saturday, 60 miles a month. I was eating pretty well and couldn’t get to looking how I wanted. The baby weight was stuck.
I lost 3 lbs my first week of OnRamp. Now I fit into my jeans I wore when I got married. And I feel like a newlywed!
I go to class 3-4 times a week and run 1-2 times a month. I still run as fast as I did last year despite not running regularly. I eat fairly clean but mostly only avoid sugar and wheat because it works for me. (Basically I can get away with grains and dairy so I eat them…)
I climbed the rope last week for the first time in my life and I’m doing a scaled competition in August for fun to test my skills. I’m really excited! Crossfit makes me feel amazing. I am still really new at this and I have a long way to go but I can’t wait to take the journey. I appreciate all of the coaching and encouragement I get every time I come in. Keep lifting!!!
