So, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written anything. Life = crazy. I learn new things about myself and my body all the time and that’s awesome. I started out at the end of August eliminating gluten, then dairy and last month started ditching sugar. I’ve had a bit of sugar, dairy and gluten in small doses over the last month and I learned that my body just doesn’t like them. I have gluten to thank for the quarter sized rash on my neck I’m sure and for my psoriasis being worse.
I plan to spend the next week or so getting back to stricter paleo and then it’s time for the final elimination phase of eggs and nightshades. I eat lots of eggs so this will be a challenge. I’m also going to grab some fermented cod liver oil that Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites recommended in her book, Practical Paleo, for people, like me, with a leaky gut. Basically autoimmune = leaky gut.
Anyway, onto my main excitement as of late, Crossfit! I never thought I’d be into something like this. I’ve tried every workout imaginable and never saw results. Paleo + crossfit = WORKS! I love the group setting and the support everyone gives one another. Love it.
I’m third from the right. We finished the foundations classes on Friday night and a bunch of us had our first “real” class on Monday. It was awesome! I loved being able to put some weights onto the bar and see what I could do. I feel like 63lbs on a front squat was a good place to start for a newbie and I was honestly surprised that I could hold that much weight for a front squat!
Dear Planet Fitness:
I lift things up and put them down. And I like it. A lot.
