How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
Mostly Paleo during the day. Slight deviation at night. Having a 7 year old & 2 year old in the house makes it harder. If they want M&M's...I want M&M's!
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
I prefer to have somebody else program for me so that I don't deviate from the program. If it's on paper (by somebody else), I have to do it.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
Played football and baseball through middle school, and baseball in high school. I became a gym rat at the age of 23 and never really took a break. I took up Jiu Jitsu at the age of 35 for 3 years and then found CrossFit in 2008 at the age of 38. I'm 44 now and don't feel a day older than 43.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Currently 3 on 1 off, 2 on 1 off. My training days are hard. I look forward to the rest days.
