So I was doing a little snooping on the top people worldwide as well as in my region, South Central. I have come to the conclusions that I need to shed some serious poundage. Not saying I am fat by any means, but I need to be faster.

Some days I feel like I have a 20lb tumor just chillin inside of me somewhere, weighing me down and making me feel like a huge blob!

It looks like the top CrossFitters that are my height weigh between 145lbs – 155lbs. They can all lift more than I can and obviously move faster. Right now I fluctuate between 168 and 172….HOLY MOLY I KNOW!. I dont eat a lot of junk, I take my vitamins, I work out probably to much… I do everything right. One thing that I dont do: eat breakfast – never been a big breakfast eater.

So, for the next few weeks I think I will slowly transition, keeping the Open in mind I cant take a harsh turn to anything new or my body my freak out on me, I will slowly transition into hardcore clean eating (strict paleo), drinking more water throughout the day, take some extra supplements for my lack of eating green things, eat breakfast and run 3-4 times a week now that it stays light out longer.

Last summer, I was down in the 150s…granted I didn’t lift like I do now, I ran 4 times a week and I ate like shit. (all before CrossFit) So, I can only hope that I can find something that will help me shed some weight and be lighter, faster and stronger naturally. I am not a big fan of popping a punch of capsules nor will I remember to!
