Crossfit Exercise

Here I am, 46 years old, and I am starting my Crossfit journey.  I am so excited about this. I went today and had an amazing trainer, Katie, help me with my posture and making sure I was doing it correctly. I really want to have the results of looking like her. :)

So, how did it go? 

Well, I am in a group of, oh about 10 women today, and it is truly amazing how they will be there for you when you are almost finished and everyone else is done. I witnessed that sportsmanship today when a woman was finishing her workout and having a hard time but yet determined to finish. The ladies stood around her and encouraged her to keep on going, "almost done". I spoke with her later and she said she has been coming to Crossfit for 2 months and has lost 10 lbs and over 10 inches.
I loved every minute of it and the fact that when we are done, we sanitize the equipment we used for the next group. How important is that?!!
Looking forward to this kind of work out. I tried it in Utah last summer and didn't think I would find a coach like that woman there but Katie is just as good and I am looking forward to doing this for myself.

Friday's Fruit Tip

Premade or store bought fruit smoothies you think are so healthy may in fact have more calories than a cheeseburger!

Smoothies can have as much as 650 to 1,000 calories in them due to the portions of fruit, veggies, and added sugars, and or syrups.

We feel comfortable getting layered sizes of smoothies because they contain plant-based nutrients our bodies need, but as with anything, you can overdo it!

That is your Friday Fruit Tip.
