I didn't sleep well again last night. I moved my crossfit workout from 9:30am to noon so I could get some much needed sleep. I don't like going at noon. It's super hot and there is no air conditioning in the gym. Anyhoo, I made it and I did something today I haven't been able to do before. I was able to hang from the pull up bar. I know for most people that sounds like a stupid thing to be excited about, but for me this is huge. I could hang on for 8 or 9 seconds. I was able to do some of the latt work on the bar. Basically engaging your lateral muscles and bringing your body up a few inches while hanging on. I was very happy to see my progress.
This morning I took my measurements. I think I mentioned my husband throwing our scale away so I have no idea what I weigh.....and that's ok with me. I've lost 25 inches off my body since starting crossfit. 4 inchs off each thigh. woohoo! My clothes are fitting a bit looser with each passing week. Nothing astronomical, but a definite difference.
I feel really good today. I realized I've been at crossfit now for 4 months. I've stuck with it! I haven't quit. This is probably the longest I've ever stuck to anything. I'm super happy about that! I'm making good choices one day at a time. I can't even wait to see where I'll be a year from now. I'm slowly peeling away the layers of myself that I can't stand and with each layer I'm finding the person I've always wanted to be. Someone strong mentally and physically and who pushes forward despite life's bumps in the road.
