Day 23: 243.8lbs
Exercise: CrossFit this morning and doing hill repeats tonight
Nutrition: Man, I have not binged out in 3 weeks. Phenomenal.
I am hanging in there pretty good, I reckon. I could get frustrated at what I might consider stalled progress but then again, if I can get out of 30 days and be 10lbs lighter, that is a pretty good accomplishment.
Went to CrossFit this morning and felt really good. The discomfort in my knee is slowly subsiding and I am feeling my quad start to fire more and more as I become increasingly able to add a little weight to my squats. It is kind of weird that post-surgery, a muscle just will not work because your brain tells it not to in order to protect it.
Feeling strong is a wonderful feeling. Feeling light and strong is glorious but I have a ways to go before I can get past the uncomfortable feeling in my body- the one that causes me to tug at my shirt every fifteen seconds or adjust my position because it doesn’t feel good to be heavy and I don’t like having my shirt tucked into rolls like I am a rolled-up sleeping bag. That day will come if I just stay conscious of it…but just not today.
We are running hill repeats this afternoon in downtown Memphis. It is going to be a hot and glorious ball of steamy mess and I am really excited about it. They usually have a fun group of people and I am looking forward to being with them….albeit it very far behind them.
It is going to be a great day and I am really looking forward to all of it.
Peace, love and all things Beef related,
