So. A couple of things I need to tell you. I feel like I’ve been a little MIA lately and, well, here’s why…
I think I’ve mentioned it before on Facebook and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my CrossFit updates. Yes, CrossFit, the newest, hardest exercise regiment to hit the US of A.
My husband started doing CrossFit a little over a year ago. Coupled with a complete restructuring of our diet, his whole life has changed. I’ve posted this before-and-after before but I think you should see it again…
Seriously. Can you believe that?!
Anyway, last week my husband opened a CrossFit gym (or box, as real CrossFitters call it). I, of course, had Performing Arts Camp so I could not do my first week of CrossFitting, too. (At least that’s what I told myself.) But on Monday, I had no excuses. I had to get in the gym.
Vanessa, Mandi and Staci joined me in the first workout and even after my fears of throwing up, fainting or otherwise dying, I actually semi-enjoyed it and I even felt good when I left! I went back on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. That is FOUR DAYS IN A ROW, folks! I haven’t worked out more than climbing the stairs with Asa since…well, the last time I can remember doing it with consistency is when I was preggo with Asa!
I am as sore as I have ever been in my life. But I’m also feeling pretty accomplished. What I’ve realized is this—I have no will-power to exercise. You tell me I should do 30 sit-ups a day to be healthy? Yeah. OK. I might try it for 2 days. Or I might try 15 sit-ups for 5 days. But it ain’t ever gonna happen consistently.
But being in a class that you pay for with a coach who sees you and knows you, well, you feel accountable. And empowered. Well, at least four days in, anyway.
So, along with actually working out and dragging my sore self around the house, I am also running the blog, Facebook and other social media-ness for the gym. Which isn’t huge work, but when you are a complete newbie, it takes a little more effort!
Along with all this, I am planning and getting ready for an RV trip. Yes. Like a roving vehicle? road trip van? What in the world does RV stand for?!! Oh, wait. I just remembered: recreational vehicle. Doh.
Anywhoo, my mom, dad, sister-in-law, niece along with my two kids and I are driving an RV to Minnesota. FROM ATLANTA. Holy smokies.
Along the way we’re going to visit some historical sites and most importantly, visit Laura Ingalls Wilder’s home in Walnut Grove, MN (you remember our Little House party, right?). It’s going to be quite the adventure. We leave next Tuesday, so be prepared for some updates from the road. I’m still taking applications for a hashtag for the trip. Here are a few suggestions: #ohRV #7peoplein1vehicle #RVtoMN and the front runner: #webetrippin 😉
So, a few questions for you:
