Im going to be honest, I havent been happy with most things for quite a while. There’s the usual suspects of daily life, being a wife and Mom, but when I really look at it, the truth is that Im not happy with myself first. Since I quit working a few years ago, Ive struggled to figure out how what I do matters outside of my home life. I was so lucky to find quilting and sewing 2 and a half years ago, its given me something productive to do and so many new friends who I love. But, theres still something else missing. Ive never been a very athletic person, Im one of those unhealthy people who hide it pretty well. Im tired a lot, get winded easily and dont like looking at myself in the mirror.
Ive become friends with some really great ladies who are into CrossFit and Ive been hearing how much they love it. The difference in one of my friends the short time she has been going is amazing. It finally clicked in me that this is what Ive been missing. So, tonite is my first class then Ill go to 2 weeks of fundamentals classes to work on form. Im excited and nervous and really hoping I wont die within the first 10 minutes. As a way of motivating myself and to see my progress, Im posting my before measurements.
Chest – 38″ Waist – 32″ Hips – 40
I love this quote, its keeping me moving forward: “When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”
