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.
What are some jazzy things that you have been making progress on?
Tomorrow is Friday!
