JD's CrossFit Chronicle
 
Hi Everybody,
I'm going to start recording everything and wanted to start out with a tiny story.

I've been doing CF for about 4 months. I actually started working out August 1st of 2007.

Right around the time I started working out I was headed down the wrong road...drinking 5 days per week, smoking, chewing and eating horribly almost every meal. I had a Dr.'s appointment that kind of scared me. I had high BP, Triglycerides, cholesterol, borderline diabetic, and at 5 ft 7 in tall, weighing in at almost 250 I thought I had to make a change.

I think this log will help me stay on track as well as helping others that were in a similar situation as myself, stay positive and get on the road to better health.

I have a marginally athletic background, I wrestled in HS and played baseball but was never a "jock". I don't have a cool job that requires me to be in shape either. I just needed to do something different...forever.

With a family history of cancer (Mom) and pancreatitus (Dad) I felt that this needed to be a full lifestyle change and couldn't be a fad...I almost looked at it as if my life depended on it!

In addition to starting CrossFit I have quit smoking, limited drinking to 1 day per week (sometimes 2 and sometimes 0) depending on the circumstances. I'm eating a lot better and am currently reading the Zone book.

This evening I will post my workouts since April. I'm down about 50 lbs of fat since August of '07. In additon to CF I run at least one 5 K per week and when I don't make it to the affiliate I still go to globo and do skill work. I obtained my Level 1 cert in July and I'm having a blast!

I would also like to thank everybody at MotorCity CrossFit as well! What a great group!!

Thanks!
JD

Push Jerk - for weight. Kind of a contest at the affiliate. Most weight wins.

Sets Reps Weight
1 10 130
2 5 150
3 5 170
4 3 190 miss
5 3 190
6 2 200 miss
7 1 200 miss

Very frustrating...I feel like the technique goes completely away once the weight goes up. I have no jerk. Max weight is almost a push press.

I wasn't keeping track of my running but I figure what the heck...since I'm tracking everything.

I usually go pretty easy...either light for 40 mins or 5 K in about 35 depending on my mood. My goal isn't to "increase my running time" but more just to have active rest days...

Run

40 Mins

My house to 921 Lakeshore and back.
