Conversion Diary's 7 day 7 post challenge with Jennifer has been a little more difficult that I anticipated. I posted briefly about my expectations which were practically nonexistent. But I'm finding that I should probably do some more prep work before sitting at my computer to pump something out. I feel that I end up repeating myself. Or I end up with posts like yesterdays...bleck. Yea, it left a bad taste in my mouth too. I want to keep it up beat and fun around here. (P.S. Those who have commented with encouragement thanks!) Even though it is challenging I've enjoyed doing it. I'm excited to see what's in store through the rest of this challenge.
CrossFit. I have completed 10 days of training. It kicks my butt for sure! To prevent injuring my groin I have worked my arms so much this week! I am looking forward to have Saturday and Sunday off. The past 10 days hasn't made me workout obsessed...I'm not sure if that is even possible for me, but I am feeling the positive and not so positive side effects.
I haven't changed too much about my diet. No fast food...well maybe once. And no soda in the house. Even though I drink diet, water is definitely better for you. My soda intake was getting a bit out of control, so I stopped buying it for the house. If we go out or someone offers it to me than sure. I have been taking my prenatal vitamins again along with a pro-biotic and a B complex. I plan on making more changes to my diet...baby steps!
Anyway, the first week my body was sore to the point of crippling. This week I'm not quite as sore. I have more energy and I'm exhausted. A conundrum that I haven't quite figured out. I am sleeping a little better. And you know that kick in the face morning feeling you have EVERY morning? No just me? Well, I am NOT a morning person and that kick in the face feeling never seems to leave until noon at the earliest. Well since CrossFit and the vitamins that feeling leaves much quicker. It is usually gone by 9:30.
I am a compulsive scale hopper. If there is a scale then I am on it just to see. Oh I went pee! Surely I lost half a pound...Yea I have a problem. So know my body fluctuates and it being in total shock I gained 4 pound that first week. The end of this second week I lost those 4 pounds and I am back to where I started. With that said. Chris (and I) can see a little difference around my middle. What do you think? Am I just seeing things?
my purple, green thumb. Hanging plant, dead :(. African violet, not much as changed. Tomato plant, hanging on for dear life but did produce some small red tomatoes. The plants Chris planted, seems to be thriving.
