Operation Fit Bitch is in full effect over here.
Honestly, I don’t really know why. I just woke up one day last week and kind of realized that I’m coming up quickly on my 2 year Crossfit Anniversary, and I’m sick of just being kind of mediocre at Crossfit.
Now don’t get me wrong, I walked into my box for the first time in late August two years ago sedentary, overweight, completely out of shape and terrified to try pretty much anything. I’ve come a long way both in my fitness and my confidence.
Yeah, I’m still terrified of heights so things like pull ups, rope climbs, and even box jumps present a little bit of a complex challenge for me, but by God I’ve done them. All of them. And I’m brave enough now to at least *try* new skills or movements, whereas I never would have been before.
Recently I’ve realized that while Crossfit has helped me to unlock my potential, I’ve let myself become a little bit lazy in my workouts. Yeah, they still suck. Running outside in Florida in the summer will always suck, but when I analyze my mile times, my max lifts, or even the weight that I’m using for WOD’s, I realize it’s stayed pretty much the same for the past 6 months or longer.
No wonder my fitness is stagnating. No wonder I’m *gasp* almost becoming bored with my workouts.
NO MORE my readers. NO MORE.
Last week I enlisted the help of one of our awesome coaches to help me get out of my funk. I know myself well enough to know I’m at the point with Crossfit where I’m either going to push it and get to a whole new level, or I’m going to quit.
I refuse to quit.
So here’s to week 1 of progress. Stay tuned for updates, because it’s only going to get better from here.
