Ok people…I am officially scared and I am not sure why.
Let me explain.
Saturday I had a meeting with an owner of Crossfit gym that happens to be a parent at my school.
A little Crossfit background – I have heard mostly about it from other blogs I read and also from my brother. Everyone who has done it, loves it!
It is a workout that works out your whole body and does lots of different exercises (so there is no boredom). It is competitive…hello, me and like I said, everyone I know of that has tried it, LOVES it!
I found this video on Youtube that explains it pretty well! Check it out:
Doesn’t that make you want to join?
My husband and I have wanted to try it but could not afford it right now.
So, when the owner of a local Crossfit, L.P., contacted me and asked if I would meet with him to discuss a partnership, I jumped at the chance.
He is a very knowledgeable man who knows his stuff in regards to nutrition and proper exercise. He went over a Wellness plan for me to present to the staff at our school that looked amazing. Totally different than past weight loss competitions. Hence the term- WELLNESS. It is all about getting your body well and healthy. I will be presenting this to the staff in the next few weeks and will keep you posted on their response.
Then, the interesting part hit. He wants me to follow a strict workout/eating regime (still in line with Weight Watchers, just very clean eating…) and he wants to monitor my progress. He wants to help me lose these last 30ish pounds I have been struggling with for the last few years.
He wants to help me succeed and to be brutally honest…
Of course, I tell my therapist mother that I am scared and she wants to analyze my feelings (I LOVE that about her, btw!) and when I really think about WHY I am scared, I didn’t really have an answer for her.
I am not sure why it scares me.
Is it the possibility of actually getting to goal? Maybe
Is it the possibility of losing readers when I am skinny? Yes.
Is it the idea of a totally new workout routine (Crossfit) that intimidates me? Abso-freakin’-lutely!
Is it the idea of having a stranger- that is not necessarily a stranger because he is a parent at my school-hold me accountable? Yes!
Is it the idea that I have to come out of my comfort zone and do something I am not familiar with? Yes!
Is it all of the above? Absolutely!
On the other hand…
Am I going to do it? Yes!
Do I know when? Not yet. I have to figure out some times and things with my full time job, part time tutoring job and part time blog. Plus I have a dog at home that has to be let out sometime!
Will I be successful? Absolutely.
Am I scared sh*tless? Yep!
Stay tuned for all the great details. I am still trying to figure out logistically if/how it will all work out and even though I am scared, I am excited too!
Have you ever done a Crossfit workout? If so, what do you think of it?
