Pretty sure I may actually be sore tomorrow.
Next time do this in a bikini.

That is all.

She did get me this shirt and she tells me I'm amazing:

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Hi, ladies.

I've been lurking around for over a year now and thought it about time I introduced myself. I've been doing CF for 15 months. Got hooked when my daughters basketball team started working out at our affiliate. Loved it, got certified this past May, and now coach ladies Body Camp classes and CF Kids.

You gals are quite inspiring and have made me realize I'm not working hard enough. Here's to hitting it hard. If I could just lay off the wine and chocolate.

Thanks.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Can we just lay off the chocolate, and keep the wine? At least in moderation?

Though personally my Achilles' heel is caffeine. I'm down to a cup of coffee a day, and my husband doesn't want me to go off completely. Something about being impossible to live with when I don't have any caffeine at all...

Welcome, and nice to see you!

I could do without the wine but not the chocolate.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

I'm doing without the wine and beer for the month of August. So far, so good. I did give July one heck of a send-off.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

I don't drink but don't take my chocolate away from me!!

I used to have a couple squares of dark chocolate every night but I've sort of got out of that habit. Now I have a couple squares of dark chocolate once a week or so.

My favorite is Salazon sea salt dark chocolate. It is sooo good!

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

[QUOTE=Shannon Mullens;819290]Hey there.


Also looking forward to burying the acquaintance I have who's all "tee hee! I'm eating garbage and doing the elliptical machine and losing weight like crazy!" I try not to hate her but it's hard - so CF is my chosen better path to fitness.

I have a whole family like this! My mom and sister eat whatever they want, don't workout..I take that back, my mom walks her little dog and my sister uses the eliptical or jogs on the treadmill and does situps...they are both TINY...I work my A** off 4-5 times a week at Crossfit, watch what I eat, and still struggle with losing weight...when I am in Seattle I feel fine and know that what I am doing is awesome and feels amazing, but when I take a trip home I get so PO'd at them! Don't know if I will ever look better than them in a bikini but I guess I know I will be healthy...wish I could challenge them to a crossfit WOD ..I would kick their butts!
