For Christmas 2006, Mary gave me a present that began a wonderful change in my life. I've never had a weight problem, but with some health issues common to my age group, I started feeling older. Muscle aches and headaches were very common for me. Since I've always been pretty health conscious, when Mary gave me the gift of starting this CrossFit program, I was willing to try - and to look into her Zone diet as well. I never expected to feel a change. I never had with other exercise programs or modifications in my diet. But this time is so different.
The workouts are very challenging, but in a fun way. I love the variety and being able to modify them to fit me! And along with the Zone, well, this is definitely the best I have felt in many years. In fact - and I credit the Zone mostly for this - my headaches have almost totally gone away. I had seen many specialists for the headaches, and not one even suggested they might be diet related. Plus, I have so much more energy now.
What a wonderful gift this has all been! And being able to do this with Mary's help and encouragement has been the best part.
