New Beginings

NOW is time for  'new beginings'.
Isn't it crazy how fast life changes?  You are riding the wave, no worries, then BAM!  You get knocked off your board.  You panic, swinging your arms, kicking your legs just trying to keep you head above water.  Well thats me...the girl with the sopping wet hair.
The best part is, I'm getting back on the board.
CrossFit had given me the courage...
To do hard things.  
To endure.  
To keep on going.  
To see things through.
To finish what I start.
To do my BEST.
I have learned a hard lesson.  Not eating is worse than overeating!  I worked SO hard for my muscle.  But with the craziness in life, I got too busy to eat and workout.  Well there went my muscle.  There went my drive.  I havent slept well, tired all the time, can't focus.  

That being said, tomorrow is my my first day back Cleaning up my food.  (Notice I didn't use the word diet.)  I went shopping and am preparing one weeks worth of food.  No excuses.  
I can't wait to feel good again.  I look forward to working hard and eating clean.

30 DAYS OF SQUATS

OK Ladies.....here it is .  






“Regardless of what the problem is, the answer is to squat.”
Those are the words of CrossFit founder Greg Glassman. 
 "Do this well and everything else you do will fall into place," he explains.  "Do this poorly and everything else is going to be a little challenging for you.
  I started this the first day of July.  If you are just getting started, add an extra 10 squats everyday until you catch up with the schedule. 
 This is all about form, take your time.  This isn't a WOD... so don't race through it.  Take your time and move well.
I leave you with a picture of a good squat.  If anything, just get into a squat position and try to copy her knees and feet in the photo.  I don't even care if your chest is forward too much for now.  Hit me up at the box.  I give you some simple drills to fix your squat and save your knees.......

Squat

                                                     Who gives a 'squat' ?  I DO!!!

Day 10

DAY 10.... Early morning social time. There's nothing to bring me out of my bleary-eyed 5:30 a.m. state than when I pull into a parking spot at the box and see everybody up and about, the earlier class getting their WOD done. The music gets me going, I get to say hi to my friends, catch up on everybody's week while we stretch and warm up.
