Four days til CrossFit! I am finally starting my ramp-up sessions on Monday and I could not be more excited. Or nervous. I feel like everything is conspiring against me to NOT join, from a busier-than-ever work schedule to a broken, leaky window that requires a costly replacement, but I’m not letting anything stop me. CrossFit, here I come!
This great post from BrieFit has reassured me that I’ve found the right place for me. I immediately felt a rapport with the owner, and she really encouraged my goals (to weigh under 200 pounds and run a sub-40 5K).
One point Brie mentions–wear the right clothes–reminds me that I am in desperate need of some new workout gear. I think I’ll spend a little time this weekend on that. I’ve found one pair of workout capris that I love, so I’ll do a major stock-up on those. The shirts are the real problem–there will be no sleveless tops for me, and most of the t-shirts I own have a V-neck. I flashed more people than I care to remember during the Fittest Loser boot camps, so it’s probably time to find some alternate tops.
On Sunday, I’ll post some before pictures and (maybe, if I’m feeling really brave) measurements. And on Monday, I’ll be back with a recap of day 1!
I can’t wait to start this journey and get firmly back on the path to health and fitness!
