Back To My Senses

Okay, so I came SO close to going back to my old weight training routine...I pretty much had my mind made up that I was going to cut back on CrossFit WODs and add in some bodybuilding stuff. I was actually going to start today.

But then I woke up today and came to my senses! I mean, yes, bodybuilding workouts built me the muscle and gave me the strength that I had when I started CrossFit. But it took like 10 years to get there! When I started CrossFit, I weighed 118lbs...and now, 9 months later, I weigh 123-124lbs! And I know I have not gained 5lbs of fat.

So CrossFit has basically helped me to gain 5 pounds of mostly muscle in only 9 months. Who knows what it could do for me in a year or two?? If my weight drops and I really feel like I'm losing muscle, then I'll stop or at least adjust my program.


Anyways....yesterday my husband and I had a great time at King's Island! It was perfect weather-sunny but not too humid. It was fun, but after all the walking we did and going up and down stairs to ride the water slides, by the end of the day we were exhausted!

We did really good with our eating while we were there-I packed healthy snacks and a healthy lunch, and we were even able to resist all the yummy food smells throughout the park(the pizza was SO tempting!).

On the way home, however, after walking and being in the sun all day, we were starving. So we stopped at Bob Evan's and feasted on omelettes, home fries, and biscuits! And then split a dessert. :) Even after all that I still felt like I could eat another whole meal! So I guess that was our cheat meal for the week!
