CrossFit

11,610 pounds lifted this morning…I must be insane

crossfit1I have a love hate realationship with CRossFit! As I lay in bed, and the alarm goes off my mind becomes very sharp at decifering why I should just sleep in. I have learned over the last 8 months doing crossfit – that I never regret getting up and going, but I always regret for the most part when I don’t!

This morning was a stuggle to get my fat butt outa bed, and I am so glad I did! Okay and look bleow at what Cricket did! wow. I swear I am gonna make a t-shirt with my cricut machine and wear it into the gym. With a cricket on it. She is badass strong!! Wow.  and yes- errrr…. Those are my hands! real feminine aren’t they? Nope but they are strong.

AMRAP (crossfit talk for “As Many Reps As Possible) in 30 minutes.

Deadlifts.

My deadlift max is 150lbs, I did 135lbs this morning.

For a total of 86 reps THUS the 11,610 lbs!

I guess my flight to El Paso this morning will seem easy, since I have lift 11,000 pounds before 6am!!

 

On another note: I need some long socks!!! cause even crossfit can make me shop! and notice how crossfit is leading me to craft? I am making a t-shirt?

My new realization about myself anything can make me shop or craft!!!

Did I tell you I started Crossfit?- very humbling…

June 29th, 2014 – I started on this crazy and amazing journey. (you will see posts on my instragram feed).

Let me back up a little, in March of 2014 I lost my dad. After losing him I struggled to get my life back on track. I never realized what an impact our “little conversations” had on me. He had grown into such a cheerleader for me in my life.
Through depression bouts and moments of self doubt I embarked on a journey to try to be my best self.  As “cheesy” as that phrase can be “my best self”. I really thought to myself I am not getting any younger, what if I challenged myself to get in the best shape of my life?
That lead me to facing the fact that I needed to start making my physical and mental health a priority.   I didn’t realize until my first few sessions how much strength, functionality and agility I had lost. Let me just say–It was a very humbling experience. Not being able to get up off the floor quickly or without alot of effort. very humbling. In my mind, I still feel as if I am in my early 20’s, and assumed my body was the same.

Enter-Crossfit.

 I have to say that I am like many crossfitters, and was very passionate about my workouts and discussed it often. (insert- me in Joey from Friends picture). I am so excited to discuss and share my progress. You do not have to do crossfit. You just have to move and work out! For me I am on a journey to do my best effort and become in the best shape possible. For the challenge, for my well being…What do you do to stay in shape?
