soon50 Posted September 22, 2014 Share Posted September 22, 2014 I finished my second W30 last week (they were back to back w the exception of reintroduction and a 'special meal'). The first W30 I lost inches and weight, second W30 lost 2 inches not weight and that is ok (I say with partial belief). But, now I'm going to 'ride my own bike' and have a question. I have been eating nuts but occasionally too much (maybe a cup at a time - to finish a meal off, which would technically be like a dessert/snack). Is this bad? I think nuts may be my sugar demon. I know I want to lose a couple of inches, so could this be slowing things down. Not sure... As a side note, I am a 50 years old woman who has been doing crossfit for several years (3 X per week) to keep active and stay healthy. My trainer and I were working on a 10 week strength program to see the improvement of my one max rep over the 10 weeks. The 10 week program started around the same time I began my first W30. I did my max rep at that time to have a base point. This week is week 10 - where I see what my max reps are now. We did back squats today and my max rep went up by 25 lbs! I am very excited about that and I must say that the 'tiger blood' did pay off. I can back squat 180lbs - can't wait to see what my bench press will be on Wednesday:) The W30 definitely helped me with the added energy and the mentality of being able to accomplish something that's difficult!
