“What has Crossfit done for me?
Well, yes, I’ve lost 50 lbs and 3-4 clothing sizes, so buying a new wardrobe has been fun. . .
But not having to go to a chiropractor for back and neck pains is even better.
There’s pain in Crossfit, for sure, but the kind you earn and feel good about…the pain of accomplishment. See, it’s not just about looking cute, it’s about feeling amazing.
Feeling lighter, faster, more agile…getting my reflexes back!
At 37, I thought my aches and pains and slowness were from getting old. Nope, it’s from carrying around what is the equivalent of kindergardener, all the time. Now, at 38, I feel healthier and fitter than when I was in my 20’s, and my 19 year old daughter can barely keep up.
There are many things I love about Crossfit but the first thing is that there are no limits.
You think you’ve hit a limit and you come back a week or 2 later and you go even further or faster. I told people I did 600 squats total the past week and they looked at me like I’m insane…and I’m thinking “I could have done more”.
The other thing I love most about Crossfit is that I’m never alone.
I’ve taken classes at other gyms and there can be 50 people in a room, but we weren’t working together or helping each other or challenging each other. Not so with Crossfit…whoever is there that day is cheering you on and pushing you, or they may be the person you are trying to beat…total interaction.
Anyway, thank you JJ, for introducing me to a better living…and to being better to myself!”

Part 1: What Happens To Your Body When You Fast? – Energy Production
As you know, Iâ€™m a big fan of intermittent fasting, but this is an area of it that Iâ€™ve never really looked at. Iâ€™m going to break this into several posts because thereâ€™s a lot going on here and I donâ€™t want to burden everyone with a novella. Today, weâ€™ll look at how the body handles energy production during the fasting period, a good starting point given that, when you get down to it, an energy source and water are the only two requirements for the body to operate. . .
