Week #5: CrossFit Chesapeake Challenge

Today ends week #5 of the CrossFit Chesapeake Challenge.  I grabbed some pictures of CrossFit Chesapeake this morning so you can see what it looks like inside!

This week I pulled back on the carbs and added some more protein in my diet.

So when I weighed myself this morning I was surprised when I was only down one pound.  But that’s a total of 6 pounds in five weeks so atleast it wasn’t a gain!

However when I did my measurements I was happy to find I lost another inch off my waist!  So I guess I am losing weight and replacing it with muscle. 


This week I tried a great new recipe for Homemade Chicken Nuggets that was very inexpensive (I pretty much had everything in the house already) and they were yummy!  I also got a recipe for Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies (made with Greek Yogurt to increase the protein) but will wait a bit longer before I make them. 

This is officially the halfway point so keep your encouragement coming!

    You are doing this the right way. I would prefer my clothes fit better and not so much see pounds lost. When I went on a major diet a couple years ago, I joined Curves and walked a lot/rode my bike. I dropped two pant sizes but not so much weight lost. That is healthier I believe. Best of luck to you Laura.
