  1. I need to drink more water anyway- this is actually kick starting me into it.......
  2. Checking in - Tonight will be the first night I'm actually getting a gold star on my sleep goal ---- I'm semi giving myself a pass on Monday because of the Bowl Games Nutrition and Fitness have been on point - extra gold star for nutrition as I have not had ANY soda in 4 full days..... I have been CRAVING junk food/snacks - but have been getting by with grabbing my "with me at all times" Yeti filled with water. Tomorrow is day 3 at the gym--- thought last night was going to be the end of me - but I did it....... Eating that elephant - one bite at a time

I’m working on it one day at a time tho. I can now hold my own in the strength stuff but don’t ask for any type of cardio endurance!!
  6. So - this is the awkward part where I tell my story of getting here etc - right? I'm a total dork at this sort of thing - but I'll give it a shot. I'm 48 but don't feel old in any way - Although I've completed triathlons and even a marathon - I'm not fit. My nutrition has been sporadic at best and I tend to fall off the wagon really easily. I have been working my way into a Paleo lifestyle the last couple of months - but still am not in a fully consistent mode (ok ok I admit it- I cave to all the yummy holiday temptations) I've been back at Crossfit for a couple months now - but am onl
