    I don’t make many posts, but Nancy, Beth, Sergia, Katherine and everyone else that helped with breakfast to celebrate one year at CFATL for Leah P, Chris Lane, and I deserve a big thank you! Hard to believe it has been a year. I’ve never stuck with ANYTHING for a year. CrossFit Atlanta is the best! I still remember walking into the gym for the first time, completely clueless to the CrossFit concept. I only came in because it was the closest gym to the house I had just bought. Vas heavily scaled a WOD for me and I gave it a try. A few minutes later, after nearly passing out on the mats, Vas leans over me with his stopwatch and says “congratulations, you just worked out for 8 minutes.” I was hooked.
    I still have a long way to go with my goals, but it has been a great year. A special thank you to Dan, Brent and Mike K. for their continued coaching, support, and encouragement. It makes all the difference. I walked into CFATL at 213 pounds and today I am a much stronger 191 pounds. AND I still need to try this Paleo thing everyone keeps talking about. Also, a shout out to Leah P, MoMo, and Chris A. for giving me a little extra motivation when they are there in the mornings being all hardcore. Ha.

    awesome post, Blaine! I love it! I remember when you and Chris came a couple times in the evening and kept asking me when you would be off the bands for pull ups and asked when you could come in next “would tomorrow morning be too soon!??” haha. Awesome having you guys.
    I showed up late this morning to celebrate but Nancy still made an omelette for me!
    If you guys are able to come by the bbq tonight please do and we can celebrate all over again!

    Can the body fat testing of a couple of weeks ago count as the “before” testing?

    Indeed it can! In order to get them to come back on Friday July 2nd we need at least 10 people to commit to doing it on that day. So, let me know if you want to do this. Otherwise we can plan on going to the crossfit gym they will be at on Thursday the 1st

    Happy anniversary to Blaine, Chris and Leah P! You guys are such an important part of what makes our community so special! Awwww. What a spread this morning. Thanks to Nancy and everyone that contributed!!
    I won’t make it tonight, but have fun! See you all tomorrow morning.
    P.S. Bethanie would like me to tell you all that SHE made the paleo cookies first, and THEN gave me the recipe. I didn’t make them first. LOL!

    haha… just to clarify, i never took credit for the recipe!!! i do like to think i’ve perfected them though 😉 i mean, how else do i justify eating about 10 today?
    seriously, though, a million thanks to everyone at CFATL… it’s been an awesome year! i love all you guys like family, and i can’t wait to celebrate all over again next year, and the year after that, and the year after that, and on, and on. you catch my drift.
    xoxo
