Transformation Thursday. I don’t even recognize the guy on the right compared to the picture on the left taken this past weekend. I honestly never thought I’d be a “crossfitter” or preach on how Crossfit can change your life, I even used to tease the person who’s responsible for getting me into it for going. But, the results don’t lie. It’s hard work and I’ve wanted to die in multiple workouts but I keep going back night after night because it’s my healthy addiction that I’m stoked to have in life. #thisiswhyicrossfit
[Day 8 of 30] I went to sleep pretty early last night, so I wouldn’t be too tired to get this 3AM workout in 😂🤷🏽♂️. Definitely starting to see changes physically, and I’m sure it’s because I’m more strict in counting my macros; otherwise I would end up eating fried chicken wings all day (which doesn’t sound too bad 🤔). I’m beginning to see a lot more changes in my abdomen than anything else, which, is one of the main concerns I have. I definitely felt the pump with my workout this morning, and that’s really great, since I didn’t go yesterday. Tomorrow is leg day and I’m STILL. Feeling sore from the LAST leg day 😭😭. Someone HELP!
A little appreciation post for my man!
This guy is undoubtedly one of the most inspiring people I have ever met! He has suffered with Crohn’s disease for many many years now but it has never stopped him for working his ass off in the gym.
Crohn’s is a horrible condition and it often leaves the patient in pain and unable to do a lot of things in life. For someone training in a gym it’s always about the gainz.... As much as Darren would love to gain size as much as every other guy in the gym he has to take care of his inner health before the exterior looks!
Crohn’s stops the patients body from processing the food and nutrients correctly so have a think about how challenging that is for someone that suffers this condition!
So many are quick to judge but the story behind a persons health often be the reason that they take a little longer to achieve results that take a healthy person a fraction of the time so never judge anyone for you never know what they are battling and guess what....? Not always is the signs for all to see externally!
Keep smashing your workouts babe you will always make me more proud than works could ever describe!
#tbt - If you don’t come back from vacation looking like this, did you reallyyy even go on vacation? And no, I have no explanation for how I got burned like that - I believe it was aliens, or global warming.
A week later and it's time to show this beauty off at its new natural habitat. I want to say a big thank you to @joshfishertattoos for the amazing line work and art all the compliments I get are yours man and @fivekeystattoo for the friendly atmosphere and help. Can't wait to get it finished.
