This is what one of my friends keeps telling me. He says if he had the sweater like I do, he'd never wear a shirt.

Congrats, Matthew! And, my husband rocks the sweater, so you're fine either way.

Man those results are awesome! You said that your diet is Paleo, but what are your #'s like, or are you even counting protein, carbs, fat. I am interested to hear. What ever you are doing is working great for you, congrats and keep up the hardwork.

Hey Robb. I was doing Paleo when I first started CrossFit. About a month in I went strict zone at 18 blocks with Paleo foods. About a month later I went 1/2 Carb 2X fat with paleo foods and thats what I'm still doing now. I pretty much eat a consistent diet for lunch and dinner which includes a lot of different kinds of meats with some red meat and then salads broccoli and strawberry and fuji apples. Breakfast is usually 4 eggs with a piece of fruit and either almonds or all natural peanut butter(Laura Scudders is my saving grace here.) Now what I'm doing as well is moving half of the daily carb allotment on a day when I do a WOD to post workout and this is usually when I eat a majority of my fruit. If I have a PWO carb load then I don't eat fat at that meal and move it later on when I'm missing those carbs. I usually do the 3-on-1 off training thing or the 3-on-1-off-2-on-1-off. Depends on my weekly schedule.

Ha ha ha ha for sure. I know what you mean. I'm just gonna keep it trimmed now. Being Sicilian and southern Italian I can't do much to stop the growth. Oh well. The CrossFit affiliate is in Simi. Their website is www.crossfitsimi.com(wfs) Some really amazing people that go there and the owners, Andy and Cathy Rios are awesome. They really coach and teach and have helped me so much. Check it out and I promise you'll love it.

That would be awesome. If you wanna drop in with them for their first WOD I'm sure they will feel comfortable with everyone enough to want to come by themselves. We have quite a few people who come that are older....and when I saw older remember I'm just a young pup at 22. ha ha ha ha ha
