What Have you accomplished this year?

I just read at tweet that said the year is halfway over, you have six months to do what you set out to do this year.  So have you done what you set out to do?  I had three summer goals and I havent met any of them yet.  I want to deadlift 300lbs, I have 5 lbs to go till I hit this goal, do 5 kipping pull ups in a row (these pull ups are becoming my ultimate nemasis!) and to loose 20 lbs.  The last one is my own fault.  I start doing good on my diet for a week or two and then the weekend comes and it all goes bad!  With 6 months to go till the end of the year and a month and a half till the end of summer, I really need to step it up!

Almost to the 300 club!

I had been afraid to try and max out on deadlifts since I hurt my back several months ago.  I didnt want to reinjure it.  Last week I decided to give it a try as long as I didnt feel any pain.  I went from a previous PR of 270 to 295!  I was so excited!!!  Next month be ready because I will hit that 300 mark!

We had our first athlete compete in his first ever CrossFit Competition, CrossFit Katy's Bring the Heat 2, and he got 1st place in the scaled division!  We are so excited for him!  We cant wait for him to compete in the next event!  Check out the photo's from the event here!

If any of you are in Houston, check out this charity event that CrossFit Elevate is doing.  We are going to have several teams participating!

Oh and I am on day 4 of my 30 day challenge to get back to Paleo.  So far so good, did the first 3 days with no hiccups!
