Hi y’all!

I made some huge progress lately and I am so excited I want to shout it off the rooftops!

1.  I got brave at crossfit today.  Really brave.  🙂  We had pull ups today and I used my normal purple band (which makes pull ups the easiest).  I did the WOD and felt okay about it.  I don’t sweat as much as the others in class so I sometimes feel like I could be pushing myself a little more…anyway…after class I noticed that someone was using a green band which is the band that makes it easier but no where close to the purple band.  I got up there and tried it.  I was inches from getting over the bar but it was nice to see my body moving up there.  The coach (a female who I have seen working out with us but never coaching) asked if I had tried the black band before, which is the band that would be my next hardest level.  I said no and grabbed it and easily did 5 pull ups with it.  Then another girl asked if anyone had talked to me about moving my arms closer together.  I tried that and it was even better!  I shyly told the group I was struggling with pull ups but until today had never asked questions about it.  Yay!  I felt so cool walking out of class, making connections and PROGRESS!

2.  I have been tracking my calories.  EVERY DAY this week so far.  I have gone over about 200 calories every day but at least I am getting in the habit of tracking!  Go me!  I have still been wavering in the 144-146 range since I last reported my  weight and I won’t get weighed again until Saturday so I hope to see some good results.

3.  I bought my first stash of grass fed beef.  The nutritional guru at Primal recommended Wallace Farms to me after I had questioned how he was able to buy all the healthy stuff with a limited budget.  I would go to my local Hy-Vee and their grass fed beef was $7.99 a pound.  I couldn’t justify that when I can get regular beef for $2.99.  Wallace Farms was decently priced and I felt good dealing with a local company.  They have their ground beef at $6.50 and it is less the more you buy.  The process was simple, you register online,  pick a date and location for pick up, order your product and pay and they have it all ready for you.  I am making a taco soup tonight with some of the ground beef!  I can’t wait to try it although I hope to make hamburgers or something soon so I can really taste the difference.

4.  Baby Belle is making some hair-do progress.
