I literally have zero desire to go to the box. I went one day last week, and went at 6 a.m. yesterday… but totally bailed because after the warm up I was so lightheaded and dizzy I had tunnel vision.
20 minutes and some sugar later, I went home and laid flat on my back for a half hour until the spinning stopped.
I had good intentions of getting back there last night, even left work early to make the 5:30 class, and instead did a serious wine WOD instead. I think it’s needless to say, wine WOD till 11 = no 6 a.m. class today either. And a very very angry head to boot.
I realize not everyone is 100% motivated 100% of the time. Even I have experienced the i-don’t-want-to-get-out-of-bed moments, but this is different
Granted, there are things going on in my personal life at the moment that are weighing on me. My mood is more up and down than usual, and those of you who know me are probably having trouble comprehending as I’m a hot mess normally.
I need to remind myself that excuses like those above aren’t going to put me any closer to my goals. I think I also need to remind myself that this isn’t just about weightloss.
Yeah, I want to look good naked. Yes, I have a size I would like my body to be.
But I want to be STRONG. I want to be FIT. I want to know that anything I want to do physically, whether it’s rock climbing or mountain biking or surfing or zip lining, my body is capable of.
Crossfit gives me that confidence.
It has the ability to give me the body I want, and has the friendship, the family, the camaraderie and support that helps me every step of the way.
I can’t reap the benefits of Crossfit if I don’t (say it with me kids) GET MY ASS TO THE BOX!
So here’s my pep talk to myself. I’m putting it out there because I bet I’m not the only one who needs one of these every once in awhile.
Feel free to cheer me on. Feel free to tell me to get off my ass. Feel free to tell me how Crossfit has made YOU successful. I need it all right now.
