Take the Challenge
It seems like every post I make I start off with, “I haven’t written a blog post in forever”. Oh well life happens!
Life is busy, busy, busy
I’m in school, working and hitting the gym.
I have 6 weeks left of summer school in one class and 2 days left in another class….CAN NOT WAIT!
I’m working 40 hours/week at an office (slow death)
I’ll hopefully be starting a new internship soon, which I’m very excited about!! (Details to come)
I train between 5-6 days per week, depending on how my body feels.
Since April I’ve been going to a “new gym” It’s not your typical globo-gym though. I’ve started doing CrossFit and I’m addicted! I’m a member at CrossFit 305 and it’s a perfect fit for me.
For me CrossFit works better than bodybuilding. Lots of people have their opinion on the subject and that’s perfectly fine, but I do what’s best for me 🙂
The thing I like best about CrossFit is that it feeds my competitive, athletic nature. I found with bodybuilding there was more of an aesthetic goal versus a performance goal. I’m challenged daily with a group of people where some are stronger than others but we push each other!
I have several goals with my training and I’m very excited about them. I’m very interested in learning new lifting techniques such as the olympic lifts, gymnastics skill work, and overall strength & endurance and this allows me to do so.
Some people have asked if I will be doing anymore fitness/bodybuilding competitions and the short answer is…not right now. It just doesn’t interest me. It was a fun experience, I met a lot of great people but I just don’t “love” it right now.
I am currently on Day 1 of a nutrition challenge with my box and it adheres to the Whole 30 nutritional guidelines.
It’s a 30 day challenge to change the way you eat and enhance your health.
I’ve been doing nutritional programming for a few weeks now via Leigh Ann Yeagerso the challenge won’t be a huge adjustment for me. I’ll just have to make a few changes, with the main one being grains. I’ve eaten oatmeal for breakfast every day for the better part of 2.5 years so this will be interesting, haha.
I enjoy working with Leigh Ann because she’s supportive of my goals & interests.
The challenge includes a pre & post body scan so it’ll be interesting to see where my numbers fall in July.
Other than that not much else to report…hahaha
