    You're welcome! It might be harder to find a crossfit gym out there, but you never know. But yeah, you're not going to get any progress working with small weights. That's just what trainers in some gyms tell women to use, because a lot of women say they're afraid of "bulking up" (uh, not gonna happen anyway).

    You've gotta keep pushing your upper limit to progress!

    I worked for 12 hours straight on that project.
    I'm tired and I'm getting callouses from the vacuum cleaner.
    All that to say this...
    I have to suspend my involvement in this challenge for the time being.
    As soon as I feel safe to lay on the floor to do my exercises,
    I will join back in.
    It's okay if I don't qualify for a prize.
    If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't have been exercising at all.
    My health and improved muscle and bone strength is enough of a prize for me!
    Of course, I will still be stopping in every day or two to read the posts.
    I appreciate you all.
    Awesome, good for you!!

    Sorry to hear about the fleas and having to suspend your involvement, though. Hope you can join us again soon!

    Tues 10/18 CrossFit Workout

    10 rounds, alternating thrusters and rowing, with thruster reps decreasing and rowing length increasing with each round

    10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps thrusters (55lb), 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 calories row; finished in 15:04

    A thruster is when you squat with the bar on your shoulders, then push it up over your head until your arms are locked straight overhead.

    Thurs 10/20 CrossFit Workout

    5 rounds:
    2 power cleans, 7 back squats, 50 double-unders.
    Completed the 5 rounds in 15:25 (I think, but I forgot to write it down). The 50 double-unders in each round took up the most time by far.

    It was frustrating again, because I had to keep the weight low to work on my technique, so I used 65 lb. I would have liked to use 85 or 95 lb. We used the same weight for power cleans as for back squats, and I have trouble snapping my arms around and getting under the bar quickly enough for a proper power clean, so I was limited by that. Ah well, patience. I'll get it one of these days.

    105 sit ups today and 50 sit ups yesterday.

    My trip to Boston has interfered with my exercising more than I would like- however, I think the amount of walking I have done more than compensates for it. I'll try to keep it up in Louisiana, but first I need to determine what is doable while I am out there.

    Stomach....muscles....getting....stronger...IT'S ALIVEEE! Not really, but my stomach is starting to super firm. And they say sit ups don't do anything.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Boo-fucking-yeah, baby!!! Check out these kick-ass results:

    October 10 (before):
    Weight: 58.7 kg
    Fat: 25.6%
    Fat: 15.0 kg
    Lean body mass: 43.7 kg
    Water weight: 32.0 kg

    October 21 (after):
    Weight: 57.7 kg
    Fat: 22.1%
    Fat: 12.8 kg

    And who the hell said fasting burned muscle??? Bahahahahhaha! :-P

    Yes, even endomorphs can lose fat. ;D And gain muscle. ;D At the same time.

    Disclaimer: Don't do weird crap before you check with your doctor. I'm healthy and also work out (strength training + cardio) on a regular basis and drink a crap-load of fluids. So don't everyone run out and start fasting and shit without checking with your doc first.

    No cheats used while I was away... I haven't weighed myself, but I actually lost a bit of weight on vacation. Walking several miles almost everyday and trying to eat cheap while in England (meaning: eating sandwiches and Sainsbury salad bar food) was good for me. Although the fact that Coke is made with real sugar over there was bad for me, as I indulged more than I should have.

    Week 1: Tennis on the 4th, walked/toured London on the 6th and 7th, and walked 2 miles to my hotel in Dublin on the 9th.
    Week 2: Walked/toured Dublin on the 10th, explored Glendalough on the 11th, Galway on the 13th, and the Connemara fjord on the 15th.
    Week 3 (This week): Explored Cork/Blarney Castle on Monday the 17th, walked to various airports/buses/lodges Tuesday, Bath/Stonehenge on Wed... and it looks like I need to do one more exercise this week or else I'll have to use a cheat.

    As it turns out, our PT test got moved to next month... But just a couple weeks away. I still will continue to improve as much as possible. Recovering from drill tonight, and tomorrow I'll start on a push-up sit-up regime to try and bulk those out for the PT test as much as possible.
