How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I am about 90% paleo, still love a lil peanut butter now and then it's my only cheat.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I record my workouts

I participate in the Crossfit classes 6days a week at VO2 Max in my home town of Grande Prairie Alberta. I also run between 5 and 10km 4days a week. Practice yoga when I can and swimming.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

Growing up I was in a variety of sports started out in soccer when I was 6 and moved on to basketball in grade 8-12, I still play ladies league basketball once a week during the winter. I ran cross country under ACAC for 3 seasons. I was on the 2008 Alberta summer games team for track and field.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I started participating in Crossfit at the end of this past summer I fell in love after my first class. It had changed my life in that I'm more confident in myself by just realizing how strong I really am. There had been somewhat rough patches in my life and moments where I lost the person I wanted to be but Crossfit brought me back to exactly where I should be. It has taught me to let go of my ego and just work to the best of my abilities and you never stop learning.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I will participate in the Crossfit class 6 days a week then, every other day I will go for a long run with my puppy charlie just to clear my head and relax my mind. I usually take Sundays off I'm a full time college student so sleep doesn't come by as much as I would like but I do average between 6-8hrs of sleep a night.
