Sleep: 6 hours

BW: 179.8!!

WOD: Tabata Intervals (Squats, One-arm DB Push Press [30#], Tuck Jumps, Pushups, KB Swings [16kg]) [56]

21:00 – rotissere chicken from Albertson’s (1 drumstick, 1 thigh, some of the breast, tabasco sauce), 24 oz of skim milk, 1 slice of turkey deli meat, ~5 oz of coleslaw

I did it! I finally did it! I got under 180 pounds! Seeing that “7” in the tens place really made my day. I started getting a little discouraged that I wasn’t losing more weight, and that all my hard work was for naught. Alas, here I am, sitting at over 25 pounds lighter than I was 9 months ago; 7 pounds lighter than when I got back to the Philippines in January. Yeah, that doesn’t seem like much. But I don’t think that weight is the only way to measure how much my body has changed. At any rate, it is definitely a good ass feeling to be where I am now. About 11 more pounds til I reach my goal!! (I think I can lose about 6 of those during the rest of the challenge. Lets hope so, at least.)

Good start to the week. I should be a lot more focused, seeing as my workload will decrease, along with my extracurricular activities (I think…) I always love having new people workout with us to motivate me, so having a Marine there today helped me a lot. We’re halfway done with the challenge this week, so I really gotta step it up to see some results. I’ll really put in the work this week. School is almost over!!

Got a lot of time at Fil-Night…time to FINALLY update.

Tuesday was rough since I only slept for an hour the night before…I even fell asleep without Crossfitting. BLEH. I’ve only worked out 3 times so far this week, and I hope to run after Fil-Night. We’ll see though. What a crappy week. Maybe I’ll add an extra at the end. I dunno, I want to keep Crossfitting forever anyway. Hahah. Ok, time for some Fil-Night action. Probably the last time I will be acting in this thing ever. Maybe. Coz sometimes it’s hard to walk away from things like this.

Challenge Day 7 (Playing catch-up!)

Done with week 1!

Sleep: 6 hours

WOD: Football!! For two hours! [We won 7 touchdowns – 3 touchdowns]


8:00 – 16 oz skim milk

10:10 – 3 poached eggs, 3 slices of “Canadian bacon” (it was really just ham), 1 slice of an English muffin, hollandaise sauce (the devil made me do it!), 16 oz skim milk

14:00 – handful of nuts, 27 0z of water during football

17:30 – Royal Red Robin burger sans bun, sans fries, sans mayo, two melon slices, 3 glasses (maybe 12 oz each?) of water

20:00 2 string cheese, chocolate milk (my new guilty pleasure), handful of nuts

Football was awesome today. I haven’t played in a while now, so it was great to be out there to hit some people. Crossfit has DEFINITELY made me quicker and stronger. I got off the line fast on defense and I thought I hit pretty solid today. My passes were pretty accurate on offense too, so I’m happy overall. It just feels good to do something with all the exercising that I have been doing. It’s like today I got to reap some of the benefits of working out so much. Ahh, I cannot wait til June 1st! But honestly, that’ll just be the next checkpoint.
