As you all know I took a little break from CrossFit. Mainly because it wasn’t fitting in my schedule, life plan at the moment, and I didn’t want to feel obligated to go because I was paying. I just needed a time where I didn’t make working out a priority and trust me it’s done wonders for me. The rest, naps, Netflix I have watched and self motivation I’ve brought back has been great. That’s also why I’ve been talking non stop about burpees lately and not CFB.
I’m not going to say that this was the easiest thing I’ve done. Two days after my break from CrossFit post I was texting Amanda saying maybe I was being dramatic and made a mistake. We both agreed I needed to just enjoy the break and wait it out. And I realized that this time in being away from the gym I was frustrated with not being able to be consistent with something but all this time I have. It sounds silly but I consistently did NOT go to crossfit. I actually stuck with not doing something for a month which in turn did something for me.
It almost feels like I’m starting over. The fear and pressure I was feeling before has gone away and I’m itching to get in that gym and lift weights and work on my form. I’m even excited to work on snatches and overhead squats! My 2 frenemies.
I’ll admit last night I was having a pity party. One of my old gym mates texted asking why I had quit and I was super frustrated that word was even used cause I was just like IM ON A BREAK. I had convinced myself that no one was really concerned if I returned. So dramatic I know.
BUT THEN I emailed Kyle letting him know I would be back next week and he replied with a message that included “we miss you so much” and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Maybe I’m extra emotional this week and it made me cry. Maybe.
The point is: I’m excited to restart my journey with CrossFit. I’m on a quest to get strong and to keep an attitude of no fear.
No sleeve summer is basically here y’all. Time to get those muscles out!!
