My friends and I have started a Thing! We all get together on Sunday evenings at the lake and do a workout! Collin has dubbed it Sunday Runday! Runday is kind of a misnomer since we only run a mile and do a HIIT workout, but it sounds good haha.
Run 1/2 mile

I’m already planning next week! :D

Meant to post this yesterday but I was exhausted from work so today it is!
Weigh in: -1 pound this week! For -10 pounds total!
Not nearly as much as the first week but I expected a plateau after losing so much at first. I’ve also considered the idea that because myfitnesspal didn’t update my caloric needs until yesterday (at which point I finally lost 10 pounds), that might’ve slowed me down.
I’ve been in Ketosis non-stop, and I feel great. Sometimes I’ll get a headache if I don’t eat enough fat but that’s nothing a fat bomb can’t fix. No complaints overall, in fact me and my roommate are thinking of doing this for longer than the planned month! We’ll see! :)
So my hometown conveniently hosts the US’s biggest one day bike ride (idk how to verify the validity of this but yeah), and since I’m riding these day it’s on! Woot! This should be an experience! It’ll be my first time pulling 50 on my bike so idk what’ll happen. I’m pretty confident I can do it though.
I just really hope it’s not too windy tomorrow like it has been the last week because that’ll really be the “hell” haha
I lost count of all my crossfit posts (again lol), so I’m restarting the count at 3.1 (3= reboot, 1=day).
First day: FRAN oyyyy haha
my time: 12:05
Considering I rode a hard 12 miles yesterday this was killing my quads, but it was fun :)
LIFE UPATE: total mess
Long time no talk guys, I swear I’m still alive!! I’ve been posting but nothing personal and I feel so bad for it. Thing is I’ve spent the last month or so getting my MCAT squared away, and visiting doctors.
Remember that knee pain I decided was chronic? Yeah, totally an actual injury/problem. Went to the doctor two weeks ago and he told I have a laxity in that knee and it’s because of a muscle discrepancy (which is actually really rare). He said my vastus medialis was super strong and actually stronger than all my other surrounding muscles, and that basically whats happening is that it’s pulling my tendons off the bone (kinda a shin splints sorta thing in the knee). So basically, my leg muscles are BAMFs LOL. He legit told me I was a "great anatomical example of the leg muscles" and that I had Lance Armstrong legs hahaha but he nixed running, and rx’d cycling for at least 2 months to strengthen the other muscles. Told me I’d probably not be able to run long distance as much as I want to but with continuously supplementing cycling I could still (eventually) run leisurely.
So, I guess I’m going to become a cyclist now. Bought a bike last week ($$$ omg) and have been riding. I LOVE IT! I’m planning on tearing up the bike routes with my favorite cute curly-haired collegiate cyclist as soon as he gets back from Spain too! :)
More updates from now on, I swear! <3
