Serious back pain today. Like, borderline injured pain. Found out my deadlift max is 145lbs, though. I think those two things (back pain and dead lift maxes) go pretty hand-in-hand. The BF can deadlift 235. I mean really.
We are heading out on the river this weekend, so no Crossfit for us until next Monday. In fact this weekend will most likely consist of almost nothing Paleo, with probably a good amount of rowing but otherwise just a lot of hanging out at camp and horseshoes-playing to be done. River trips are the best.
But I decided that before I go out this weekend and drink beer and eat bagels and put melted cheese on everything and reverse all my progress, it’s time to post some new photos!
I definitely think that the Boyfriend has made more noticeable progress, especially in his shoulders, but he already started out with very little body fat and a good amount of upper body muscle (isn’t he dreamy…) I guess I’m not too bummed that I haven’t gained much muscle, because overall “muscley” is not really an adjective I’m going for. But my side photo definitely proves that some major toning is going on! Also, I have lost a grand total of 3.5 pounds in the past 3 weeks, so I’m now at 128 lbs… not a ton, but I am keeping in mind that I am definitely building muscle, so watching my weight is not going to be a very good indicator of progress through this process.
