CrossFit is Freaking Hard!

So basically CrossFit is the devil, just kidding I love it! CrossFit is a program that is made up a bunch of exercises that allow you to do your cardio as you exercise. For example you don't have to run/walk and then do your situps. Each day on the cross fit web site you get a new set of workouts to do for that day. Whats nice is you can modify them to your needs. CrossFit's web site says that it is used by many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. I would totally recommend it!
I would just caution people to be careful of working out to hard the first time, especially if you haven't worked out in a long me. My legs were sooooo sore all week. Now that they feel way better I am going to start back with it. One of the other things I love about CrossFit is that you don't have to have any fancy equipment to do it. In fact I was able to work out this weekend right in my apartment. My parents are coming over tonight for a work out session so we will see how it goes. I cheated a lot this weekend so I really need to get back on my diet. I'll have those before pictures up soon!!

Lose Weight Now....ask me huh??

Welcome to my blog! I created this account a while ago and just never posted anything. I thought that I would re-vamp it and turn it into my loosing weight blog. I am very very embarrassed to say that I am now up to almost 160 lbs, I will have to re-weigh my self to be sure because last time I was cringing so hard at the numbers I couldn't really see!!! Even though I am really really unhappy with my new larger look I am excited to start my slimming down journey!
I am not sure what weight loss plan I am going to be going with so for now I am going to stick with working out for at least 20 minutes a day and sticking to my SparkPeople daily meal plan. This is a great web site that gives you meal plans based on your body weight, age, health issues etc. It also gives you lots of message boards so you can talk to people in you situation. If you have never checked it out I highly recommend it!
So, hopefully this will work for me. I am going to really try and document what I am eating and pictures as I loose weight. I am super embarrassed to put a before picture before I start actually loosing weight, but I will do it.
Luckily for my my Hubby is on board with me so I will have an accountability partner. So wish me lots of luck as I start on this crazy journey!!!
