CrossFit has taught me to seek out my weaknesses, and given me the tools to then turn them into a strength. It's not just mastering a movement, it's a mindset. One that I've seen transcend into the other areas of my life. CrossFit has taught me that I can be as good as I want to be, and I'm incredibly thankful for that.I have an insatiable desire to better, faster, stronger. Focused on regionals 2014. Front Squat: 210 lbs
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
I eat mostly paleo, and do the zone diet. I make, weigh and sort my food for the week.My boyfriend and I try to make everything on Sundays. I also have some dairy as I don't want to become lactose intolerant. I'm definitely on the 2 cups of chocolate milk post-workout train.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
I workout at CrossFit Imperium and couldn't be happier. My Imperium family is essential to my success as a CrossFitter. Don't know what I'd do without them. Marnie is the new Rudy.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I have always been an athlete. I played soccer, cheered, swam and ran track growing up. I played Soccer till my Freshman year of college because of a hip flexor injury. I started with traditional weight lifting to stay in shape and used to compete in NPC Figure competitions. I desired the competitive nature of a 'Sport' and switched to CrossFit- best decision I've yet to make. I much prefer functional muscle than that built with only aesthetics in mind.
My Experience With CrossFit
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I train M/T/W off TH on F/S and off S. I take rest days as needed and try to listen to my body. Rest and recovery are equally important. When I'm 100% I'd like to go in for 2-a-days to work on Strength/Skill work in the mornings.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Less than 6 months
I've been at Imperium CrossFit since Feburary and trained for 3 months prior at CrossFit Exile in Moore, Oklahoma. I did however first hear about CrossFit at CrossFit Bulletproof in Austin, Texas
