CrossFit!

Back in January, i stepped up onto our weight and was chocked a the huge gain I have had the past years! In short, i was weighing a total of 108,3 kilograms! At a height of 184 centimeters, that’s quite a large BMI of 32.

I was chocked and decided to act upon it.

So i finally decided to tryout Cross Fit, and did I find what i was looking for? Oh yes. Although Cross Fit as such did not give me any significant weight loss, it came from putting myself on a diet. No more starch basically and no more weekend candy.

I’m now at 95,2 kilos with a BMI of 28,1, my fat percentage has dropped from 25,2% to 17,2% since early February, and I’m happy as hell. In fact my metabolic age dropped from 44 to 23.

So how did Cross fit do that to me?
I got motivated! In the sense that the people in our box, were helpful, open minded and not at all judging. Where I previously went to the local gym and you felt like looked down upon unless you were a bodybuilder look-a-like.

If you’re considering increasing your fitness, take two minutes to watch this video :-)

Feel free to follow my workouts. I write down all WODs and times down here, on my Workout page.

Graphics Card Crash – And why EVGA is my preferred choice!

So, after not being home for a weekend, I come home and turn on my computer, there’s a weird windows kernel graphics driver error, and my Graphics card somehow seems to obtain a flaw!

I try rebooting the computer as i suspected it being an error in windows, but no change. So i try to uninstall the driver and re-install it, without and results. Video of the attempt to install the video card driver can be seen here.

So, after concluding my card is busted, I go to www.evga.com and log into the site, fill out a support ticket, as I bought my 580 GTX there years back. And as i back when i got it, registered the card within the 30 day limit, I am apparently entitled to a 10 year limited warrenty. On top of this, support replies, that from what i described i should RMA the card.

3 days later, the UPS guy is in my Driveway, and gives me a package from EVGA, containing a EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Signature 2 card :-O

So basically they upgraded me as well, since the 580 GTX weren’t in stock anymore. I am so great full, and just have to share this.
