Christmas!!!! I love Christmas, I always have, but this year I loved Christmas even more! This year for Christmas Santa brought me Crossfit sneakers and lifters. Yes, kind of geeky, and perhaps it’s a little presumptive that I will ever even “need” the lifters but I’m excited to have them regardless. I’m excited at the idea of crushing my PR for my deadlift. I’m excited at lifting more during my push press. Heck, I’m INCREDIBLY excited to see how much I can back squat. You see if there is anything that I have learned during these past few months of Crossfit it’s that you can only get better; you can only get stronger. These shoes as silly as it may sound are a small reward to me. These shoes represent the fact that I have stuck with this program, and that I want to continue to stick with it until I’m physically incapable of doing so. (Pray that never happens.) It’s been an incredibly long time since something like this has fueled me, (Just ask my husband who spent $70.00 on skates for me to only use them for 15 minutes. I SWEAR I’LL USE THEM AGAIN.) and I couldn’t be more excited about where the drive will take me. This journey is just starting to get interesting. I’m starting to see my gains, (small but gains none the less) I’m starting to see my stamina increase, my body aches and creaks less, I’m also seeing my cravings change and decrease. This program and lifestyle may not be the best for everyone, but it is certainly something that is working for me, and something that I plan on sticking with for the foreseeable future.
PS. Santa also brought me some pretty sweet workout capris, sports bras, and t-shirts too which can only lead me to believe that Santa wants to see MASSIVSE GAINS for Christmas next year. Challenge accepted Santa, challenge accepted.
