Back on track

I will be following this advice closely for the next few days. Last week was a complete disaster as far as eating goes and starting today I am back on track. I am going to log all my food to keep track of what I eat. I am going to Crossfit today, tomorrow, and Monday. I am going to get my act together. I feel like crap. I feel bloated. I have a slight headache that has been hanging around for about two days. I feel lazy and just want to sleep. I also feel full. How is that possible? I only had a salad for dinner last night and I have not eaten this morning. But still, I feel full. So I'm done with the garbage and starting today need to get myself in check. I hate when I feel like this because I'm almost embarrassed to go to Crossfit. I feel like such a slug. But going to Crossfit is exactly what I need to get my butt back in gear.

I have nothing more to say, so I'll sign off and get ready for Crossfit.

Update: Nothing puts you on the right track and in the right frame of mind like a good Crossfit workout. The WOD today was:

50 kettlebell swings
25 toes to bar
200m farmers carry
40 kb swings
20 toes to bar
200m farmers carry
30 kb swings
15 toes to bar
200m farmers carry
20 kb swings
10 toes to bar
200m farmers carry
10 kb swings
5 toes to bar
200m farmers carry

This is what is known as a chipper. There is a lot of work to do and you just need to break it up into chunks you can handle. In other ways, chip away at it. I love these types of workouts. I do well in these. I don't do great in the sprint type workouts, but chippers?? Love them. So I set my mind to it and chipped away at it. I finished in 32:49. Nice. I love when faced with a long list of things to do and I kill it. I didn't exactly kill it, but I did the best I could. Pushed myself when I wanted to stop.

Where your head is, is the most important aspect of life really and in Crossfit especially. These WODs are meant to push you, to test you, and to improve you. I love it. Now, if I could just get my head in the right place for the eating portion, life would be great.
