Yes! I did write that. I am managing to make a habit and although everyday I do look like this:
Yep, even with that sinking feeling, I still go. I've learned not to look at my gym's blog to see what the daily work-out is until we are wheels up...otherwise I start to chicken out.
|Yep, crossfit silly-fies us. All the blood rushing to our wittle muscles and |
our sweat-logged brains getting mushy under our drippy brows
The question was would I give up like before? Or would I hang on to this new exercise high that had me almost looking forward to looking like this every day:
|Crossfit Day 2 Looking Like a Tomato with My Kiddos|
That had me shouting, I love kettle bells:
So back to today? I never managed to get to my crossfit class today. Actually drove there between football carpool, but then realized class was 1/2 hr later. I knew I could not stay--I would be late for football carpool pick up (I ended being late anyway, but that is another story heh) so I went home.
On way home, I decided to try the Bob Harper Workout DVD I tried a couple months ago. Yes, THAT one! You know...the beginner one so challenging that I couldn't finish. Then? I was distracted by work. Family. Life. Football carpool. Then swim carpool. Then dinner. Then household chores. Finally getting kids to bed.
Yep, lots of excuses...
Any other month, that would be modus operandi for me. However, this would be breaking my 9th crossfit/workout day! So?
This is where I swell up my now heaving chest and say I am really proud of myself. After everyone went to bed? I started the workout. It's 5 minutes to eleven now. I am sweaty and exhausted...and happy. Pat on the back inner-me and many thanks to Bob!
This will be nine workouts in 10 days--a record for me--toward my personal challenge to workout everyday until Christmas to lose 30 lbs. Yes, I have more than 30 lbs to lose, but it's a start! What is your fitness goal?
