A Letter From Your Fat Friend

How's it goin’?

This is a letter from your ol' pal, Body Fat. We had a great run this summer, didn't we? Lots of good times, great food, and plain ol' sitting around eating way toooooo much.

Well, I'm thinking about sticking around another year if you don't mind. But you might need to get a bigger pair of pants, as I was thinking about expanding my place down here.
So do me a favor, avoid that CrossFit training you were thinking of doing. The last time you did that stuff, I nearly had to look for a new place to live. I felt like the Wicked Witch of the West in the land of Oz.

Did you hear me yelling, "Help me, I'm melting!"?

Instead, stick to that slow cardio stuff. Sure I get a little sweaty, and the ol' brain up there thinks it's doing "a real fat burning workout", but it's never enough to melt me outta here.
Another thing, keep listening to those experts who say strength training doesn't burn body fat. Since research shows they're wrong, if you added strength training to your program, you'd practically need to throw me a going away party!

After each one of those CrossFit workouts you tried last January it felt like someone lit a match under your  butt. I was burning up down here!

But boy oh boy, I sure was glad you gave that up and went back to just lifting spoons and forks and not dumbells. Otherwise we wouldn't have been able to celebrate another summer together this year. Such good times!

Sometimes I wonder, what did you ever do in college without me, your trusted body fat? Back then, you were probably one of those people that couldn't wait to get to the beach to show off your body, unlike these days.

Nope, stay in the shade and keep the cover-up clothes on, that's the way to go now. Besides, its a lot closer to the cold beer and the BBQ when you're sitting in the shade avoiding all the fun down on the beach.

Well, it sure was good catching up with you. I'm sure we'll be in touch more often, as long as you stay away from that CrossFit Training workout routine.

Brings a tear to my eye whenever I even think about that workout program and all the body fat it's burned. Heck, it's fried more fat than a short order cook at a roadside truckstop.
So again, if you want to keep your dear old body fat around for another year and another summer, do NOT use CrossFit Training - otherwise, its all over pal, and you'll never see me again.

Your friend,
Body Fat

PS - Seriously!
Don't go near that CrossFit Training program unless you want to see me, Thunder Thighs, Manboobs, Jigg Lee Arm Fat, and Luv Handles pack our bags and hit the highway.

It will be a sad farewell, and you'd be stuck with ripped abs, gorgeous glutes, and toned arms, and you know how much attention you'll get from the opposite sex.

Who needs it, I say.

PPS - Don't do what these people did.
They used CrossFit Training and look what happened to their body fat.
Now please go get me some more comfort food...


 I want to thank you and Cordula for all that you do I am grateful that I have chosen to come to CrossFit. I am amazed that in 1 1/2 weeks I lost 14 lbs. The workouts are great and I am challenged everyday. Thanks for sharing about diet and the fact that you take the time to find out what my fitness level is gives me a gauge to know how much I am improving. 

Again thanks and I am looking forward to the next months and to improved health.
