I’ll start tomorrow … next week … next month. Sound familiar?
With another birthday coming up and some health issues that needed addressing, it was time to quit putting things off. I was seeking improvements to my overall health. After some stalking of the CFU FB page and seeing a friend’s transformation, I pulled the trigger and opted to try a six-week CrossFit challenge. The rewards for walking thru the CFU door are infinite.
At the end of six weeks, so many positives: less anxiety; stress relief; feeling better, stronger, more confident; getting a much-needed grip on nutrition; mental clarity and focus; weight loss; improvements with health issues … the list goes on. More importantly, I gained friendships and a community of unwavering support from CFU Coaches and Members, none of whom judge you for being the new kid on the block. Each WOD is physically and mentally challenging, but motivation, determination and excitement carry me forward. With each new day my goals are to show up and do the work; push myself (but know my limits); don’t compare myself to others as everyone is on a different journey; listen to the CFU coaches; and be #betterthanyesterday.
