Thankful Things Thursday
I haven't done a TTT in a long time, so here it goes...
1. I am THANKFUL for my BOX. Crossfit Coastline has been a great place to take my fitness to a whole new level. My coach Jennifer ( has been amazing. We usually look like this when we crawl walk out of class...
We recently recorded a commercial for CrossFit Coastline. I am in the opening of the commercial throwing the weight up and in the middle doing the box jumps. Check it out if you want too.

2. I am THANKFUL for the results I am seeing doing CrossFit and running. I have always struggled with toothpick legs. Now that I am getting some muscle growth and definition, they don't look too bad.

 3. I am also THANKFUL for the weightloss I have had over the last 2 years with a combination of running/weight training/Paleo diet/and now Crossfit...
4. I am THANKFUL I have had such a great success with the Paleo diet and have learned healthy ways to prepare some of my favorite dishes...
