It’s time for another krasey fitness update. Here is what’s new in krasey fitness land.
On Being Caffeine Free
Yes folks, you read that right. After early October’s forced holiday-related caffeine ban, I’ve decided I don’t need it anymore in my life. The irritibality, moodiness, headaches, and utter exhaustion I felt after cutting out caffeine cold turkey only made me realize how dependant I had become on the brew to get me through my ever-busy days. Going into caffeine withdrawal opened my eyes so to speak, to the evils of dependency, and I didn’t like what I felt. So now, I stand before you completely caffeine-free, hoping I can maintain this new facet of my lifestyle. That means no more regular coffee, no more regular diet coke, no more black tea, etc. It hasn’t been easy, and I am definitely feeling more tired these days, but I am hoping all of that will pass.
Feeling the Pain, and why it is kind of awesome
So I know that I mentioned the Core Fusion class of a couple of weeks ago, right? Well what I didn’t mention was the intense physical training session that I had just two days prior to that. Let’s just say that I went hard, and I went long, in a workout that left me sore, shaking, and aching in a way I never thought possible. Topped with Core Fusion just a short day later, my muscles were fatigued to the max. So much so that one week later, I still felt pain in my biceps and obliques. Oddly enough, I enjoyed the pain. I felt like I actually achieved something that workout. Weird, right?
I am 1 lb away from my first goal weight!
So one of the reasons I started working out in the first place is that I wanted to lose weight, obviously. I have always made it a personal point to be slightly under what it considered a normal weight for my height. Unfortunately, I had ballooned to something 20 lbs away from that, and that was no bueno. So what I did was break my weight down into two, 10 pound losses. 9 down, 11 to go folks!
