The other day, I said I was all fired up and ready to make some changes.
When I first lost weight, I lifted a lot. I worked out with a trainerâ€¦and thatâ€™s basically what you do with trainers. Lifting heavy is amazing for losing weight and changing your body.
And then I got hooked on running.
I still love running, but Iâ€™m feeling a little soft. (Itâ€™s not the running, itâ€™s me.)
When I decide I want to do something, I DO SOMETHING.
Iâ€™ve heard so much about CrossFit over the years, and seen how itâ€™s changed so many peopleâ€™s bodies and lives.
(Iâ€™ve also seen how itâ€™s made some people SUPER douchey, but thatâ€™s neither here nor there.)
I donâ€™t intend on becoming a huge CrossFit d-bag (câ€™mon, we all know the types), but Iâ€™m going to give it a try for a few months and learn some more about lifting, etc.
I’ve already signed up for my first month and taken two out of the required six Elements classes that you need to take before they let you take real-people CrossFit classes. These Elements classes teach you the basics of CrossFit so you know what you’re getting into when you take those real-people classes.
Ok fine, post CrossFit selfie. Step 1 to ultimate d-baggery.
I PROMISE this wonâ€™t become a CrossFit blog because Iâ€™ve read enough blogs that just talked about CrossFitâ€¦and I canâ€™t. But Iâ€™ll try to keep you looped in on this journey, and in as many real-people words as possible.
BRB, gonna go get strong this fall and then get fast this spring.
