Confessions of a Skeptical Former Chubster.
Am I the only one who adds reps into my metcon WODs because I don’t believe that I’m this fast or strong?
Whenever I rise to the top of the pack in a WOD, I always assume that I’ve miscounted or misunderstood the standards, so I throw in a few extra reps.
And today… I PRd on my deadlift. But then I counted the weight on my bar about 5 times with a calculator before I finally gave myself credit for it. WTF?
I guess I’m just used to being slow & weak. But it’s finally starting to hit me… Thanks to Crossfit, I’ve become an athlete.
You’re a beast now. Deal with it. :)

Isn’t it the best? It was rough at first, but I haven’t had this much energy in a long time! Congrats on making the big switch! :)
Testimonial — Back on the paleo wagon!
I just wanted to check in and say that I’ve lost 11lbs (8 of which was holiday weight) since the end of the gluttonous, non-paleo, holiday season that lies between Nov25th and Dec25th— just by eating paleo & doing crossfit. Primal pat on the back! Also, there’s a month-long, box-wide, paleo challenge starting up tomorrow, which means I’ll be in foodie mode once again, posting up pics and recipes galore! :)
Crossfit “Pull-Up-Hands” Tip:
Just thought I’d share the wealth…
I’ve tried everything— moisturizing, tea bag soak, Neosporin, etc… But the BEST thing for crossfit hand-rips seems to be good, old fashioned, A&D (yup, the diaper rash stuff). It makes the skin layers heal faster and softens the skin around the tear.
