I LOVE this quote. I love the body even more. A girl can dream, right?!
Although I aspire to have the body of a champion someday, right now I will settle for a body of proof.
What you put in is what you get out.
It’s really simple. If you want results, you need to set a goal, execute a plan, and follow through. I know now what it takes to look like a champ; even more importantly, I know what it takes to think like one. Through crossfit, I have surrounded myself with people who strive for excellence and make no exceptions. Their accomplishments humble me; their knowledge nourishes me. Without them, I would only be one part of the equation.
Free your mind. Fuel your body. Add some soul and you can make magic.
Week 2 Results:
The scale still has not dropped but I can definitely FEEL a difference. And I swear I see a difference. Eight weeks before everyone else notices, right? I will practice patience, I promise.
I lost another whole inch around my chest and quarter inch around my waist and hips. It looks like the thighs and biceps stayed the same. Those damn legs!
I am loving my shakes and getting into the groove of the schedule. I am trying really hard not to focus on the scale’s paralysis (is it broken??) and had to get a stern wake-up call from Shai who reminded me that it’s NOT about the numbers on the scale but about my performance, my measurements and body fat. I’m a crossfitter; I should know better. Is there a WOD to reprogram my brain?
Aside from the numbers, my WODs last week were awesome. High energy and intense weight. My favorite moment of the week was when someone from the box told me I looked great and asked “what” I was doing. She said she had to ask who the new girl was because she didn’t recognize me from the back. We are now best friends! She will NEVER do wrong in my book.
One of my favorite WODs from last week was:
4 Rds. for Time
50 Double Unders
100 meter Kettlebell Farmer Carry (I did 45 in each hand)
20 Kettlebell Snatches
45 lb. bells for the 100 meters AFTER 50 DUBs was no joke. As I walked along huffing and puffing, I made a loud comment regarding the heavy load. The guy next to me (who was holding half the weight I was) alluded to the fact that it was indeed TOO heavy. Doesn’t he realize that’s not proper crossfit etiquette??? Plus, don’t ever tell a girl anything is TOO heavy.
