Just added a 0.55 mile walk to my exercise for the day (in addition to the baby WOD).  Did it in 14:00.  grin

It’s a beautiful day out, sunny and 72 with a light breeze, good for getting the cobwebs out and the heart rate up.

Great start Rosie. The trick is to just keep moving a little more at a time , Keep doing the WODs and challenging yourself to do that 1 extra rep or 1/10th mile. SheepDawg has some excellent ideas on weight loss since he’s taken the journey himself. Awesome start Rosie wink

Today was a high of 45 and it felt great!  Nice job and I am jealous of your weather.

Row 2K
8:10

Aiming for sub 8, crumbled in third quarter but dragged it back a little in final quarter

Happy with the time,  guessing that’s a PR as I don’t think I have done 2k in isolation for time

Getting better

And loving it

What about Buttercups and Babies?  (I’m going to have to substitute Sumo Deadlift High Pulls with dumbbells anyway, since I don’t have access to a rowing machine.)

Rosie, here’s my story for what it is worth: after high school, I let myself go. Bad. Fast forward through college, law school, a wedding, kids, and two employers, and varying degrees of yo-yo weight loss. I peaked at 303 pounds in September of 2013. I decided I want to stick around for my wife and kids.

I began doing the CrossFit standard warm-up, referenced in the beginner threads, as my actual workout, and walked an hour everyday.  I did that everyday for one month, losing around 10 pounds. Then, I began to slowly do the Brand X scaled WODs every other day for a few weeks, then two on one off for a few weeks, then three on, one off.  I have tried to stick with that pattern, aside from life happening on occasion.

By eating better (read the nutrition articles on the CrossFit Journal link from the mainsite) and being physically active nearly every day for at least 30 minutes, I have lost nearly 60 pounds over 6 months. Some months I lost more weight than others, but when I hit that plateau, I would change it up and break past. I am no longer on blood pressure meds or cholesterol meds. I don’t have asthma attacks when I work out anymore.

I have given up soda, cut back greatly on sweets and pizza, and avoid doughnuts whenever possible.  It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change.

My point is, I had zero willpower for 20 years. Now, I believe I can do anything I want, God-willing.

Good luck on your journey,  and realize many of us started out like you, so we feel where you are, and we are willing to lend our perspective.

That’s awesome, SheepDawg. Keep up the good work!
