This past weekend was insanely busy with work and with lack of sleep and free time, I failed on more than a few occasions to plan ahead in order to avoid pitfalls. I over ate, did not portion control, and did not get nearly enough rest in the process. As a result, Monday morning arrived and I felt sluggish and in desperate need of better fuel. Isn’t it funny how our bodies crave the right things when we don’t make the choices we normally do?
Anyway, Monday morning came and I still wasn’t feeling great but headed to work regardless. I made significantly better food choices and Tuesday proved to be a much better day. I finally caught up on sleep and ate to fuel my body rather than to fill my stomach. I had more energy all day long and when I arrived at cross fit I felt ready to work. It’s a good thing I did because my on ramp refresher was over and I headed back to the big kid class!
This time around, I feel so much more confident in myself and though it was a bit intimidating heading into class, I was also really excited. The thing I love most about cross fit is that like the running community, I am surrounded by people who celebrate my best and my success. During my first attempt in the fall I was afraid to really talk to anyone and the entire process felt overwhelming. I’m really glad that Trans-form helped me to become more comfortable with lifting and challenging my body in new and different ways. Restarting this time has been a whole different experience. I am excited about class and I always feel supported by my classmates.
The WOD was challenging but I grew more confident as the minutes went on. I love the feeling of satisfaction when a workout is completed and I know that I get stronger every single day. Okay…. enough gushing… I could go on for days.
With my focus on becoming stronger every day as I head towards RnRNOLA, I have really started thinking about my resolutions and reflections for this new year. Rather than wait until January 1 to start working towards my bigger picture, I have decided to start right this very minute. I am also being given the unique opportunity to jump start someone else’s goals for the new year early. Through my relationship as an Ambassador for Diet-to-Go, I have enjoyed several weeks of care free, prep free, healthy eating this year that have helped to keep me on track. Lucky for all of you, I am able to gift 5 days of meals to one lucky reader so that they can get through the holidays without the stress of what to eat and when to make it.
This is going to be a very quick giveaway closing at 11pm on December 4th! The winner will be notified by midnight and will need to get back to me by noon on December 5th so that their meals can be shipped ASAP!! a Rafflecopter giveaway
Are you kick starting you new year by starting your resolutions early? What’s your biggest goal for the next year?
