First off, I have to say that since starting Crossfit just a mere 10 days ago, I have lost 9 pounds. I also can wear a shirt that I haven't been able to wear since I bought it over a year ago. It's a cotton, spandex blend and every time I try it on, I look like I've been squeezed into in like a stuffed sausage. I put it on today and not only did it fit comfortably, but it was a smidge too large. Freaking amazing!! Talk about quick results!
I was super anxious to try the workout that kicked my behind 10 days ago. I was feeling pretty confident that I'd be able to finish and not get sick. We started off with several squats to warm us up and then Derek wrote on the board what our WOD was. 3 Rounds of 15-12-9 squats, push-ups, ring rows, and down and ups. I was told to just do the modified, which was just 2 round of 12 and 9. He started the clock and we were off. The last couple down and ups were the only time I even stopped to catch my breath. I finished and yelled TIME! Derek just gave me a really suprised look. He told me I did WAY WAY WAY better than he thought I was going to. I did it in 4 min and 28 seconds. Afterwards he told me that he knows I could've done the entire 3 rounds and you know what, I totally agree with him. I felt good. I still had energy to spare. How is it possible for my body to change and adapt that quickly?!
Afterwards he went over membership options and we were free to either sign up and officially join, or to go home. I went ahead and signed a 12 month contract for a membership that gives me 3 workouts a week. I plan on going MWF at the 9:30am class. It sounds like it has several other stay at home moms that come at that time. I'd love to get to know some other women that have the same goals.
I can't even put into words how happy and excited I am to really start this journey. I feel like my life has real purpose. I was talking to my mom after my workout and told her that the world had better watch out because I'm not only going to get in the best shape of my life, but I want to then become a coach/trainer to help others like myself. Booya! I just feel like nothing can stop me. I've been searching for a direction in which to live my life for years and years and I finally found it and NOTHING ......is going to stop me from reaching my goals.
On another note, my family is doing much better and the husband and I get to get away for the night to celebrate our anniversary after all. THANK YOU JESUS! I will be checking in again after my 1st official CrossFit workout next Monday. ♥
