Do you realize how much you’ve already done and accomplished? DO you realize how far you hace come since you first stepped in our box? TWO very important quesions to ask yourself. When everyone is making excuses that it’s too hot to run outside or they don’t have time to work out because they have kids, you all are getting your butts out there and throwing some weights. No excuses for you at all and Nicole tonight opened my eyes to that. NO EXCUSES getting it done no matter your day, the heat, how bad the kids were today or how bad your boss really ticked you OFF!!!
Tonight was such an eye opener or like I told Renne just a reason why I love CrossFit. We stayed we cheered Nicole on and I know that WOD almost killed her, but she was doing it! Sometimes we need to take a step back and instead of obsessing over the whiteboard or how much you did or didnt lift that day. Or how your back squats was 10lbs off of last week. Or how you could do pull ups off a band and now your back on a band then the next week your back off of the band. Today I should have been embarassed about my time, but really I wasnt at all. I sat back laughed, my shirt was sopping wet with sweat and I coached at 5:15 & 6:15 a.m. and I was glued to the t.v. all night because of the Olympics. I was physically and mentally beat today, BUT I did the WOD.
POINT is sometimes I think you all at times are really hard on yourself and I think you need to give your self a big pat on the back your friend a high five BECAUSE yall are doing what MOST individuals Cannot DO AT ALL!!!! Today was a soaring 102 and you worked out in that weather or I should say box. You wake up early to WOD because you have an afternoon meeting that will prevent you from making it to an evening WOD, you make sacrifices so just be proud of what you did that day in the box weather it was a good one or a bad one.
I know it’s good to be pushed, but maybe next time your ego is crushed, you think about how far you’ve come, what you are accomplishing and how you are actually doing something to make your life better!
