5 months ago I never imagined myself as a CrossFit'r. I walked into East Ormond Beach CrossFit thinking, "Oh crap! I can't do this. I can barely lift a box over my head however will I get that barbell up? Every week, twice a week for a month I came in more scared than anything. Not knowing what the WOD is. Would I be able to breathe? What if I have to quit? Now 3 to 4 times a week I walk through that door thinking, "I got this!" I have an addiction to CrossFit, to being happy, to being fit and most of all healthy. EOB has fast become a second home. A place to release the frustrations of the day, make amazing friends, set personal records, sweat, laugh and even cry. I have only missed 1 day and I even went to the box and watched everyone workout. Injuries happen and are fixed, pull ups are unbroken, walls are smashed... I LOVE THIS BOX!
So... yeah, up there where I said, " I can't do this." I was lying to myself. I say lil prayers like, "God, help me lift this over my head. And save my back." LOL!!! Monday, I set 2 personal records (referred to as PR's from here on out!). First, I push jerked 95#'s (over my head 2 times). See I can lift more than a box or a 30 pound kid :) (my Olivia's). This isn't my first PR nor would it be my last especially for the day. My biggest accomplishment yet aside from the AWESOME friends I have made... I completed an RX WOD! Ok, ok. I know you're asking, "What's that?" "It's called CrossFit. Look it the heck up!" (That! was for Heather! LMBO) It is a prescribed workout that hasn't been scaled or modified. I'm super stoked. It's a boost in self esteem and I feel great after I'm done. Even if I can't breathe.
So take a minute and check out my EOB album. You'll see some pretty amazing people! Here are a few!
Thank God for MK and EOB!! Have an AWESOME day! I will :)
