So I started this blog on 11 July (well, I ACTUALLY started it sometime in 2011, but I REALLY started writing on 11 July), and it has been 89 days since I began my fitness journey. I started with a clear goal in mind and an end date for when my fitness adventure would come to an end. And while I still have my goals in sight and in mind, they are no longer the end of the road. They are just sign posts along the way. Mile markers on the highway of my fitness life. When I get to 185 lbs, I won’t suddenly stop eating Paleo. I am not going to give up on CrossFit. My adventure continues and my new goals become inspiring, helping, and motivating others.
So where am I right now? Take a look:
This morning, I weighed 211.6 lbs. My waist was under 38 inches (37.9 inches to be accurate). That means I am within limits for the Physical Fitness Assessment. Woot! The beginning numbers were 232 lbs and 42.5 inches for your comparison.
To add some cherries on top, Jaime and I ran 12 miles this past Sunday. I try not to think about it, because that number just seems ridiculous. We even signed up for a half marathon next weekend (it’s nice really, because now we don’t have to map out a run).
A lot of folks have sent personal messages letting me know that I have motivated them in one way or another. And these messages mean the world to me. It is one reason I have kept on trucking. I will keep posting my progress and thoughts if you guys will keep letting me know how YOU are doing. Either in comments (click on that little speech bubble at the top of the post) or e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for everyone’s support!
