Track your Results and a Sweat Angel Contest!

Since I love people reading my blog, even though I make no money, I want to try and attract some new readers with a contest!   But before I get into the rules, let me enlighten you as to why I chose the prize that I did.

Do you ever have trouble remembering what your 1 rep max is?  Or how you did on that benchmark WOD last time?  or even what weight you used on that workout last month?  I always did, and that was part of the reason I started this blog.  It was a way to track my progress, which is important to my psyche as I move through crossfit.  Then I found how annoying it was to go to my phone every time I needed to look something up.

Then my wife, digital mustard, won a contest on Facebook through a company called Journal Menu.  What they do is create workout journals with a custom cover (or one of their standard covers).  I looked through what she won and I loved it.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  I ordered one in late December and had it a few short days later.  I started using at the beginning of the year and found it to be very useful.

With that in mind, the prize for my contest will be a custom journal from*


With winter here, and cold temperatures taking over the nation, I feel that sweating has decreased.  With that in mind, I want all of you to work hard and make sweat even in cold temperatures.  So...


Simple.  Work hard and create a sweat angel.
This is a sweat angel, in case you didn't know.

Send me your sweat angel via e-mail or you can post your picture to my reformed fatty Facebook page.

I will take submissions through Feb 10th.
On Feb 13th I will put all the sweat angels into an album on Facebook.
The sweat angel with the most "likes" before Febuary 20th @ noon ET will win the JournalMenu.
If I get more than 35 submissions, or over 100 page likes, I'll add a second place which would be a non-custom journal menu.

Be creative!  Have fun!  Post any questions to the comments here and I'll be sure to answer them.

* has nothing to do with this contest.  I just like their journal and am using it as a prize.
I reserve the right to extend the contest if fewer than 10 submissions.
