Okay, not really. But at any given point on any given day, I think I will NOT go back to CrossFit. The stress of thinking about what the next WOD will be dominates my thoughts. The still-aching muscles cringe (i.e. cramp up) at the thought of being abused again by the folks at CrossFit 808. I think that I can’t muscle through another workout. And yet, I still go. I still show up. I’ve always thought half the battle is putting your clothes on and just showing up at the gym. Today actually turned out to be one of the days where I only fought half the battle… I showed up. Fortunately for me, Jaime ALSO showed up. The 50/30/25 reps of Wall balls, Pull-ups, and Double-unders looked miserable. I wanted to turn around and go home. Jaime talked me through it, and just as she said in her pep talk, I was extremely glad I stuck around and finished the WOD.
On another note, I feel like I have turned the proverbial corner:
- It is easier to eat healthy than it is to eat crap.
- As I am planning a month long trip to the mainland, the first thing I did was set up workouts at a local box and find more CrossFit gyms in all of the cities that Jaime and I are visiting.
- I FEEL lighter. Does that make any sense? I weighed in at 219.2 lbs this morning… down from 20 June’s 232 lbs. But I feel like I could fly if I started running fast enough. I love that feeling.
The kicker here is the mindset that is settling in nicely. It makes everything better and makes me feel better. It makes me feel that all of my goals are attainable.
If anybody has been checking the food and workout log, I stopped updating it as I started using the Lose It app on my iPhone. It is a little easier to access at work and easier makes all of the difference in the world sometimes.
