I realize I never added this video. As much as I’m loving Crossfit, what I’m really loving are the days when we do the big powerlifts. This was a month or so ago, and we worked up to 90% of our one rep max. This is 365#. If things go right, I’m running a half marathon this morning, and then I’m going to start spending some more time on these power lifts. Big fun.
Holy shit, it has been a month since I posted anything. Life gets in the way sometimes. You’ll be forgiven for thinking so, but I have not – repeat, have NOT – fallen off the wagon. Things have slowed down considerably. I’m going to have to start getting more formal with my food plan. And I still have a ways to go. BUT:
I have lost just under 60 pounds, and I’m now smaller than I’ve been in over 10 years. For reference:
Pictures are funny things. There is some definition in my shoulders and arms (and even maybe just a little (a little – little) in my chest, squee!) that doesn’t really show up here. And I still think the pictures today make me look like an enormous fat guy, though compared to those original ones, holy moly.
I can buy clothes in the regular person’s part of the store now. I just had to buy a new belt – my third since I started this. I’m running a half marathon on Sunday. And this morning I squatted 325# for two reps. We’re getting there – we are absolutely getting there.
