CrossFit is Not About Weightlifting

For me… it really isn’t about the lifting, for me. Oh, I do LOVE the lifting part, but that’s not my endgame. For me, it’s about becoming strong enough to live my life the way I want to live it. It’s about facing my fears and giving them an honest-to-goodness try. It’s about my weight not holding me back anymore. So… this weekend… this happened:


And then this was ridden…


And it was one of the best weekends ever!

So, speaking of facing my fears, there’s this little matter of me signing up for a scaled CrossFit competition in October, called Festivus. Why not? Why not for once in my life compete in something physical. It’s going to be a first. I’m scared as heck and already feel like throwing up… but I’m going to do it because it’s exiting… and life should be EXCITING!!! Now that the kids are a little older, it’s time to chase some excitement!!! Wish me luck!
