Crossfit help me lose 15 lbs.

I started crossfit back int he spring and lost 15 lbs. pretty fast. From 205lbs. down to 190lbs. I was faster, stronger, lower heart rate etc. I was logging my best times in 5ks and doing more pullups then ever before. Awesome!

Thanks crossfit!


Then...

I took about a month off which turned into 6 weeks off and started hanging out with friends downtown or my dad in florida and the pounds came back pretty quick. Its amazing how fast the beer pounds add up. Totally my fault.

I started back this morning bright and early and have decided to hang up the beer for now. Anyone know of a nice low cal summer drink. Rum perhaps.


Hope to back to 190 soon .


Chris

From what I know...a majority of the fat/calories comes from the alcohol itself...You can probably save a few calories here and there but it really won't matter.

But I'd go with Pomegranite vodka and diet squirt for the summer.

Re: Crossfit help me lose 15 lbs.

Rum and diet... Of course if your on the zone you can use your carb blocks for beer. Not recomended but it still works!

On another note I was just like you 2 months of crossfit with great success. Then I was going to take a little time off and that turned into 7 months and 40lbs of fat back onto me.

Now I'm 2 months into crossfit again 1 month into the zone and loving it. The weight loss is much slower this time, but thats because I'm doing it the right way.

So cheers and welcome back! Lets do three shots of rum on me!
