11 days straight of Crossfit ... ;-( but a cheat ... my body is totally sore ... minor injury to my elbow
OK ... my entire body is sore ... esp my legs. I feel strong but tired and really hungry all the time which has been leading to cheats on the maintenance part of the diet.
I am looking forward to may 1st and will be recording all my food and exercises and stuff ... maybe not the whole workout but some of it.
OK first step done ... I have created a youtube channel to document my progress.
A few caveats. 1) I will drink coffee 2) I will use up to 2 protein shakes per day 3) I will weigh myself daily for documentation purposes ... I dont recommend #3 for anyone but feel that I want to show the progress of my weight. I will also wear the same clothes to see how they fit.
As far as my body type goes .. I am quite stocky. I bulk up muscularly much easier than I
So since doing crossfit I have gained a total of 30 lbs. Now while I think much of it was muscle, I also think at least 10 lbs of that was fat. I am not sure of the ratio but my pants are a tab bit tighter. 20 lbs seems like a lot of muscle to gain, however I was never doing back or leg exercises and they are big muscle groups so I am thinking that I went from no leg muscle to fairly strong leg and back muscles ... that could be 20 lbs I definitely look more fit now than i did when I started.

I seem to appear once every couple of years, although low-carb still seems to be a dominant part of my life.
I can't believe it's been over 10 years since I first gave Atkins a go and got down to 134 lbs. I wish I still had that willpower sometimes, it seemed so easy back then.
Last summer I lost 25 lbs, got pregnant (with twins!) via IVF, and I was happy.
Then I lost my little babies and I've just tumbled off the wagon. But, amazingly I haven't gained all
17 days after my last blog post, my husband passed away. It was the start of a very directionless period. First, I refused to grieve, because I wanted to stay strong for the kids. Then, more family members died, and I began a period of subsumed grief - keeping the painful emotions inside and eating the pain away.
Even then, the most damage I did was leveling off at 140, which is not a terrible weight for me. Or, wouldn't have been, except I had hernia surgery in late December and
After over ten years here, on and off low carb dozens of times. I finally figured out what works for me !! I started again on March 16 at 251.5 and lost for a while and then stalled for nine days and could not get it to budge. I was not eating any cheats, I was eating measured protein, as I had read too much protein when you are glucose intolerant can act the same as sugar or carbs. I finally read some more and found out I was still eating twice the protein a day I should, I got on fit day and
