Re: Body Fat Loss

Your lifting numbers are very impressive for your stats - that being said, it might be a stretch that a woman your size is burning 1000 calories in a session. Are you eating back your workout...

Re: New to Crossfit need Advice

I eat a lot more than that and I'm a 130lb female.

You lost 160lbs (good job) and then gained a bunch back, not by eating that way, I'm sure. Here is the problem with your long-term crash dieting,...

Re: I love bread

I love bread too. I learned to bake my own (which is actually easier than going to a store to buy it!) and it's been a staple in my home ever since :)

Re: Question for all the dads out there

May I recommend an "Ergo" sling (google it), my husband always wore our oldest in this on his back and it made for some awesome hiking and daddy bonding.

Re: Question for all the dads out there

I'm mom, not dad.

2 weeks? Go to sleep. Rest. Even if you aren't the one nursing, it's going to disturb you. My husband's workouts always went down the toilet with a new baby, even if I'm the one on...

Is it fine to just do the main page WOD? Nothing else really, no strength program, no additional cardio/etc.? Is that common or is there a better path to take? I don't really have much time work out...

Re: Turkish get up confusion

My abdominals were separated from two pregnancies. The separation is now "closed" ("closed" but there is always a slight gap for women who have gone full-term).

I'm supposed to avoid any exercise...

Can I do these if I have previously had abdominal separation (which is now closed)??? Or will this cause ongoing issues and open it up again?

Re: Success with fat loss without calorie counting

It's def. 2000, but it would be about the 1500 calorie equivalent of a non-nursing female.

Re: Success with fat loss without calorie counting

Thanks everyone. I have decided to try eyeballing and will give that a few weeks to see how it goes. I feel a very slight hunger at night so I suppose that's the indicator I will follow.

Re: Success with fat loss without calorie counting
