I wasn't feeling it partly because the 'Operation Get Fit' wasn't showing any progress. I was stalled and very much reverting back to some old habits. Think wine, nachos just because I went to the gym, and too much of healthy 'treats'.
I definitely wasn't getting bigger, but I wasn't getting stronger or smaller either.
Then there was that disastrous doctor's appointment where I got to hear about my weight again.
With all that weighing on me, yes weighing on me, I finally kicked myself in the ass and joined a Crossfit Box. Part of the reason I dipped out of posting was because I didn't want to become a crazy obsessive Crossfit blogger. But realistically, it was the right choice for me: a girl who liked weights but had a hard time pushing myself.

I also am working with their awesome nutrition expert Summer, and working my way through a strict paleo-esque diet up until the holidays. It's been a little bit of a battle but I'd say 1 week in, I'm averaging 95% and finally reading labels. I've got another 3 weeks to go, so we'll see what happens. She even did the whole skip caliper body fat % thing. The good news is, it's not as bad as I thought. The bad, it's definitely in the obese range. Yup, Kelly, the exercise junkie is still considered obese.
With that, I'll try to be back. I'll post some awesome things I've been making lately in my kitchen. I'll remember that this blog is for me.
