Closing Time

After some long inner battles I decided to close the site down temporarily.. It may or may not be back, I don’t know. I just need to focus my attention on other things at the moment and realign myself to get my mind right and really tackle this weight problem I have.. In the meantime, enjoy the song.

Revamp in the works

newstuff

So I decided that the current model and direction of the site wasnt what I really intended so as of now its currently being ‘rebuilt’ and revamped to something a bit different. Its not going to be what I had originally planned but something new and a bit more fresh. More informative, more content, more everything. It will take some time but I will still be updating the site every so often.

Just for shits and giggles, for those who actually view my site (not many of you but some) what would you like to see? I’d like to get some input and maybe implement your suggestions. Thanks all

Day 4 of Crossfit

So I finished up Day 4 of Crossfit at Crossfit Copperfield and am noticing that my recovery time is decreasing. When I first tried out Crossfit I remember not being able to workout for a week. I came home, laid down on the floor and moaned as I was in a lot of pain and discomfort. This time its not the case. I know its not for lack of effort as I am giving 110% (Jess you’ll get this LOL) but maybe my body and muscles are responding well to the extreme torture and hard work that is being thrown my direction.

I still cannot believe that in less than 3 weeks I will be racing a 12 mile race called with a great friend of mine who from my understanding is in pretty amazing shape currently. I’m not really worried about it like I use to be but I do ‘fear’ one obstacle. Its called the Boa Constrictor.

The thought of being in a small tube partially submerged really messes with my mind. I know I’ll be able to do it but I don’t want to have a panic moment and freak out halfway through the obstacle. Hopefully the closer I get the more I can focus and get my mind right to conquer this fear.

Recovery is going well

I am 2 weeks into my recovery and my arm is feeling amazing. The doctor stated I need to stay in the sling for four weeks which really sucks. I have trouble typing, preparing any food and doing just about anything. It can be frustrating some times but in order to get better you have to listen to your doc! But again my progress is great and I cannot wait until I’m cleared.

Take a look at my arm two weeks into recovery. The slits are very tiny as the surgery was laproscopic. These are just 2 of the slits. The shot is from top down

It definitely is difficult to keep a strict diet as without the gym and hard cardio sessions I need to really limit my intake. I’ll be back and even stronger
