Re: Weight Watchers goes Paleo?!

I went to one WW meeting a few years back to scope it out, and I came away shaking my head in bewilderment. Overall impression: A bunch of chubby (or fat) people sitting around talking about how...

Re: Yes. I'm Calorie Counting (OH NO!!!!)

:notworth:

That's inspiring! I was a size 34 in high school and I often wonder if I could ever get back there again.

I've heard myfitnesspal is also a great calorie counting app as well.



Well...

Re: Diet and Fat Loss

I second that. Whole grains will get me feeling full in a hurry, but the feeling does not last long and in short order I'll be hungry again.

Meat. It's what's for breakfast, lunch and dinner. ...

Yes. I'm Calorie Counting (OH NO!!!!)

This thread started off as a reply to Lisa in her thread, Fit By 40 (http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=63507), but I didn't want to hijack it, so I'm starting a new one. (That link is safe,...

Re: Cut 7 minutes off my marathon time...

Honestly I have no desire to be so thick with muscle that my BMI would put me in the obese range even with a low BFP. I've got no desire to be Hulk Hogan. What I'm striving for is the classic...

Re: Cut 7 minutes off my marathon time...

True. True. I'm way too early into all of this to be any sort of expert, but so far I'd say that a healthy balance of LSD + HIIT seems to be a good way to go.



Thanks! And I will. Next marathon...

Re: Cut 7 minutes off my marathon time...

Yes that's correct. I figured I was getting enough cross training with the CF WOD's that I didn't need to work in any other sports for the CFE WOD's.

(Edited after...) I should maybe add that I...

Re: Cut 7 minutes off my marathon time...

Ok, so I should amend my previous statement to say:

Still have a ways to go before I'm at an ideal body fat percentage (15% to go), but the journey so far has been fantastic!

Mike, great write up. Thank you.

Is "Clean" the same as "Clean and Jerk"?

Todays WOD calls for: "Clean"

Most of the videos I find refer to "Clean and Jerk".

Are they the same?

Heard and understood.

To be honest, I still have a lot of weight to loose and I'd rather not slow the pace. Although as I get closer to the goal I expect the rate at which I'm loosing will taper...
