As you can see these are the ups and downs that I have been dealing with over the last 10 years. As you can also see I've mixed up my workouts and even got to the level of crossfit training at 178 pounds. I'm not a stick thin person who just did the Spartan Race. I pushed all 178 pounds of me over the walls, up the hills, through the mud, etc....etc....etc.... I just never want any #Mamavation Mom to think that I don't have a long road ahead of me. I'm constantly challenging my body to do better, be stronger, get healthier and basically break out of this extra weight. It's been a slow process. I'm 5'5" and should lose another 40 - 50 pounds to get out of the "obese" range. At least I think that's what it should be. When talking to crossfit trainer Shaun McCrary he too is considered "obese" which seems crazy to me. He's a rock! He told me that most of these "ideal" numbers don't take into consideration muscle mass. What's my muscle mass? I don't know. lol - But I did release this video to inspire you! Maybe something this extreme is not for you but I just want to show you that it can be done if you want to do it. I want you to know that I work hard and I'm still a big girl. I don't want to be but I'm on my way. In my mind I'm smaller but when I see photos and video like this I know that I still have a long way to go. I have a ton of bruises on me. Maybe because I had such a hard time hurling myself over those walls. I don't know but I did it. A friend asked me today, "Was it worth it?" I'm in pain, I've got to recover before my husband's next trip out of town, I was the last one to finish out of our entire group not just my team, it took me an hour and 12 seconds, and YES every bit of it is worth it. There is a sense of accomplishment and a super cool medal that I will always have with me. You can bet that as soon as I heal I'm gonna be back out there training again. What's next? Warrior Dash - maybe????
