I met with Jay yesterday about how frustrated I am with not seeing results. I just feel an overall dissatisfaction with my body. I've been Crossfitting for almost 1.5 years, but I still don't have the body I want.
So Jay suggested a couple things like going to bed by 10:30 every night. I tried it last night and felt pretty good when I woke up. He suggested eliminating eggs and dairy for 3 weeks. And no more snacks like hummus/carrots or apple/almond butter :( He said to stick with meat and veggies in the afternoon/evening.
I was freaking nervous about getting pinched again. It's been over a month since the last time, but I'm feeling bigger! Guess what??? My numbers are apparently down (a little bit), so maybe the fat feeling is all in my head?? My stomach stayed the same. Everything else went down. And my legs are just muscle... which doesn't help me get back into my jeans, but at least they're not fat. Too many damn squats lol
So then Jay asked me whether I want CrossFit to improve my aesthetics or performance. My body is performing at its optimum level of strength, endurance, speed, and flexibility because of how it's structured right now. So if I mess with that and change the composition of my body (i.e. thin out or whatever) and switch up my workout routine, then I may not perform the same as I do now. I have to think about whether or not I care about Rxing weight or going up in weight on my lifts.
I just don't want to lose my speed/endurance with running. But maybe I only run as fast as I do now because of the heavy squats I do... Err...
It's a give and take, and I'm still trying to weigh out my options.
