First of all, let me say hi and thanks for this resource. When I saw Crossfit I was intrigued, but also a bit intimidated. I think Simplefit is more suited to my current abilities.
So I started off at level 1, day 1 last Wedensday. I was able to complete 27 rounds in the alloted 20 minutes. Yesterday I was really feeling it, especially my thighs were quite sore. Today I still had some soreness in the legs but I decided to get on with the program nonethless. I completed the 5 rounds in 4 minutes 12 seconds.
Because I completed them in under 5 minutes I've decided to advance to level 2 next week. I'll still do day 3 of level 1 on Sunday though.
I've adjusted my nutrition as well. I've been vegetarian literally all my life, so I have a tendency to eat a lot of carbs and not enough protein. I'm trying to cut back on the pasta (which has basically been my food pyramid from top to bottom for the last few months) and up the vegetables and fruit, as well as soy products for protein. I'm having roasted potatoes for lunch today because I'm simply not ready to give up on those starchy balls of goodness quite yet. I've also been unknowingly adhering to IF principles for a while since I'm unemployed at the moment and tend to sleep in. As such, I often find myself eating only during a 6/7 hour window.
Some background information on myself:
I'm 23 years old and ~193 cm (6'3"). I weigh close to 90 kg (198 lbs). As such I'm actually pretty satisfied with my weight, but I'd still like to get rid of a few useless pounds around my hips and waist as well as gain more physical strength, especially in the core.
I'm glad I found this resource. Thanks again for offering it.
Edit: I've decided to just edit this post instead of generating a long thread with lots of posts. So here is my raw log:
