Re: Is Vomiting Really Okay?

I don't think you rambled at all. I think you hit the nail on the head, actually. It's all mindset. I honestly don't know my own limitations yet, and I'll be the first to admit I've probably been...

Is Vomiting Really Okay?

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, I'm ridiculously slow. I'm also pretty hard on myself in that I feel I should be performing at a higher level than I am. During today's WOD, I...

Re: Achey Achilles

Thanks, guys! All very helpful. My ankles are feeling much better this week, but I ensure I thoroughly stretch my calves before and after my WODs now. As for the foam roller, I've been using it...

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Thanks! It was great... until today. I was satisfied two days ago, when I maxed my push press at 75 lbs. Not bad for someone who's only been really serious about this for only a month or two. I...

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Forgive me for jumping in, but I just had to stop by and brag about my small accomplishment. After about six months of CF off & on and three different boxes, I've finally found my "forever box." ...

Re: Achey Achilles

Thanks so much for the input, everyone! I did my best to go easy this weekend. It seems that the solution to my problem was a long soak in the tub with Epsom salts and not wearing heels.

I...

Re: Achey Achilles

I do wear heels for work. I just thought maybe the stiffness was because I was properly putting all of my weight on my heels for the first time during my WODs. On Friday, the pads of my heels were...

Achey Achilles

I've been doing CF since January and switched to a new box about six weeks ago. Unlike my first box, they are obsessive about form. I can't say enough wonderful things about them in this...

Re: Write this name on your hand

Mia.

She is seven years old and has a unique case of leukemia. In fact, it's the only known case of its kind. Even worse, she was allergic to the only drugs that could help her. Normal doses of...

Upset Stomach after Workouts

I've changed my routine so that I hit the gym at lunch. I eat a fabulous egg/sausage mixture about an hour and a half before I work out, and then throw back a Myoplex Lite in almond milk almost...

Re: Help keep me accountable

I had to google that one.

Oh my! If and when I ever start another blog, I'll be sure to look for those double entendres. The dual meaning is hilarious, though!

Re: Recipes for Fruit and Veggie Smoothies

Wow! A fellow McAllen person!! Where were you getting the juices? I see them all the time at HEB in the fresh foods section. The one on Trenton & 10th is sure to have them.

Re: Help keep me accountable

Helen and Scott, I am thankful for your posts today. I've hardly been at it at all and am still trying to find a way to incorporate CF into my life so that it feels as natural as anything else. ...

Re: where should I start?

I've only been doing CF for a month and I have similar issues. Weeknights are so stressful, aren't they? Below is something I try. Maybe it'll help you, too?

I spend about two hours every Sunday...

Re: Help keep me accountable

I started a little over a month ago with similar intentions. I'm skinny fat, so I've previously never felt the effects of junk food. My bloodwork suggests otherwise. Consider me a devoted...

Re: How much is too much for a newbie?

I suppose I should change the name of this thread to, "Well, I can't say you didn't warn me." :rolleyes:

First off, I want to whole-heartedly thank you both for your feedback. I've certainly kept...

Re: How much is too much for a newbie?

I told the coaches at my box that I only wanted to start with two days a week. They gently reminded me that they like their people to go every day, which is why I was considering a full week with no...

Re: How much is too much for a newbie?

Just metcons. When I finish them, I feel incredibly sore, and 30 minutes later my legs are wobbly... but I do notice by the next day, I'm hardly sore at all. Maybe next week I should push a little...

How much is too much for a newbie?

First off, the stats: I'm 5'9", skinny-fat at 166 pounds, and am definitely out of shape. (Don't know my body fat percentage, but I'd be willing to bet it's probably up there.) For the first time...
