  1. Yea, she's definitely cuter than me.
  2. Yup, gluten free seemed to do the trick and paleo is even better. Very strangely my thyroid function improved when I switched to night shift. We had all thought for certain the change in circadian rhythm would cause me to have to go on it, but I am an anomaly
  3. I think a fair price would be free for me, and $300 for Kona. Maybe only $250 because she can pay the other $50 in love and cuddle sessions.
  4. Food log from yesterday: completed. I didn't track calories or anything, I just want to be writing down what I am eating. 7/30 CrossFit: Warm-up: Run 800m (not for time) 20 GHD sit-ups (I did not feel comfortable doing these, I couldn't get below parallel) 30 weighted leg raises, 10 lb dumbbell 40ish Russian twists with 12 lb medicine ball Skill: handstand pushups....I just worked on handstands. I have a long way to go on those let alone pushups. WOD: Bear complex!! -5 rounds of 7 reps of power clean, front squat, push press, back squat, push press. Can't put the bar down in between r
  5. It's your challenge and if you don't want an overarching goal you don't need one, it's merely a suggestion.
  6. My first thought when reading your intro was thyroid issues, I've had hypothyroidism for years but have managed to stay off of medication. I'm glad your doctor didn't jump to put you on medications--a thyroid storm would be awful to go through. You're a fighter, you'll make it through! If you come across any interesting research be sure to share it.
  7. Love this. Love that you CrossFit now. When I'm in Boston I can be your wing woman?! Does that even work? And I'm surprised you're taking her out to dinner. I'm a "let's just do drinks or coffee so I can run away quickly if I have to" kind of gal.
  8. Challenge looks awesome. Sushi looks awesome. Too much awesome!
  9. I fixed it Good to know! And who knows, maybe some stars will align and I'll end up in Texas. Maybe.
  10. I didn't do any whatsoever, I had probably touched a barbell twice. They lead you through everything
  11. Woooooo! I can help with the "friends" thing...just find me a job in Boston!
  12. Thanks! I love CrossFit...this is the third box I've been at because I keep moving but they've all been awesome and definitely not scary. I've improved SO much. This morning for instance I was the worst person in the box, but I wrote my crappy score up on the board and I wasn't embarrassed because it's actually better than I've done in the past and others noticed that. The community can't be beat and pushes me more and more every time. Yes we will!
  13. 7/29/13 CF: EMOM x7 min: 2 snatches -just used the training bar, I'm still working on form. I can absolutely go up in weight next time. "Bubbles": AMRAP 12 min 10 burpees 25 double unders -4 rounds, 10 burpees, 16 DU's. I SUCKED at double-unders today. I just couldn't get them the first round and ended up taking 2:30 to get all 25. I should have scaled down but I was being stubborn. I mean, I got one hell of a workout, so I guess it counts.
  14. Funny story. I joined Nerd Fitness in September of 2011, became a guild leader at some time this year, and have participated in every challenge along the way. Fact: I have not completed one single challenge. Not one. Ever. So, my main quest is to be consistent for 6 entire weeks. I don't think I've been consistent with anything for 6 weeks in my entire life. FITNESS: 1) CrossFit 3x/week. -I planned out every single day that I can attend CrossFit in August, and it's actually 4-5 times a week. I'll be in Boston for a week (unfortunate for my CrossFit plans, but fortunate for everything e
  15. I love Fly Lady! Well, I sort of love her. I need to get back into it (goal for next challenge!) but I was frustrated with how many e-mails I was receiving from them daily--it was overwhelming! If you want to jump right into the Rangers, you'll fit right in! If you'd rather go with the Adventurers for a challenge, you'd also fit right in there, so it's entirely up to you
