This week I have been working my way back into healthy habits. These things don't happen immediately, but I have developed a plan and determined to follow through. So I have been eating good, whole food and trying to stay under 1500 calories a day. For the most part I have been successful. I have also realized that I need to get back into the Crossfit habit.

I can never see to focus on the present and I am looking to the future. As a result I lose sight of what's important. Also, my knee is acting and when I walk my back hurts. I know this is due to my weight. If I have any plans of not being in pain, I have to lose weight. So, in light of the train wreck that was last week and the fact that I am tired of being in pain, I am instituting a few changes.


Crossfit and dog walking are non-negotiable. No matter how tired/hungry/lazy/whatever I am I will do both. Eatin…
