How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat according to my blood type (B) and try to stay with Zone proportions, although lately I've been experimenting with a higher carb to protein ratio.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
I was a dancer in my teens and early 20s, and have studied and practiced martial arts (primarily Yang and Chen style Taiji) off and on for the past 30 years.
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
Crossfit has profoundly changed my body and my life. Instead of getting older, weaker, and slower I'm getting stronger, faster, and younger.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I take two days off from Crossfit a week. Occasionally 3.
