How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

i try and eat paleo, but you only live once so if i can eat paleo i do but if its not there then i eat what is. but i don't cheat all the time. most times its paleo and slim to few is a cheat ! i try and cheat 2-3 times a month .

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I incorporate workouts

with the job i have now it allows me to have 4 days off. so Mondays, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday i work out 2-4 times a day. i try to go in at lunch time to get my lifts in, and then later ill go in and get a wod or 2 in. depending on my little girl and her naps i might not be able to lift so i go in at night and get it all done at once. some days i get 2 wods in and some days i get 3 wods in all depends on the schedule of my daughter she has tumble and dance classes. so we are always busy! its fun!
