30 before 30 – Update 6
I’m 1 month into Weight Watchers and 4 weeks into CrossFit (including 2 weeks of OnRamp) and I am feeling like a million dollars. There’s a lot to be said about eating well and being active.
I’m happier. My skin is pretty clear. Someone said my face looks smaller and I’m in a notch on my belt. #Winning.
When I started OnRamp, the coaches suggested that I bring along a notebook. At the time I wasn’t really sure what I would write in it? I knew it would be hard but I didn’t think I’d need to record my feelings about it in a diary.
Today I did 100 wall balls and I didn’t even cry.
It actually looks like this:
Having the weights I used during OnRamp recorded will be particularly helpful in a few months when I look back on my progress.
During week 1 and 2 I held steady on my back squat, push press and snatch. I increased to 35 lbs on my press, 30 lbs on my clean and 60 lbs on my deadlift.
At the bottom of each page I’ve been recording the workouts (WODs) that I’ve done each day as well as the weight I’ve done them at and the time it took me to complete them. I’m noticing now that I’m reading them again – my handwriting is terrible and I’m not sure I’ll understand whatever cryptic language I’ve written the details in.
But for now I’ll just keep it as proof that I did something pretty hard and I actually finished it.
