For all you women crossfitters out there, does this ring true for you?!
Pretty lace bras are over-rated.
Shout-out to all you girls who would rather spend $40 on a Nike sports bra versus a Victoria Secret bra!
And although men may think otherwise, a girl can never have too many sports bras..am I right?!
Enough about bras..
(sorry for any men who may be reading this)
The Crossfit Games have begun!!
I was bummed thinking I wouldn't be able to watch it because I only have local tv stations...
then I discovered they have live coverage on the Crossfit Games website!
Wahoo! Except I'm not getting any housework done because I'm too busy watching the games.
I am beyond impressed by the athletes I have seen.
They are out of my league!
Today I was watching the 55-59 age division do their workouts..wow.
My mouth was down to my chin as I watched these powerful women and men complete their workout.
They made it look so easy..& might I add, they look GOOD!!
I could tell they were older but I didn't know they were quite that old!
(And I mean that as a compliment!)
They are amazing.
They are fitter than I am and 3 times my age!
I am quite impressed and inspired by such athletes.
Aside from the games, I've been thinking about some things I need to get better at.
It seems as a beginner in crossfit, I have too many goals to count.
It can sometimes be overwhelming because sometimes it seem the things I can't do (yet!) out number the things I can do.
Things like pullups, handstand pushups, pistol squats (left leg), muscle ups, etc.
You know what I mean, right?
I'm trying to take my goals in baby-steps.
Right now I've been focusing on getting those pistol squats.
I'm half way! Once I complete one on my left leg, I'll move on to a new goal.
Along with my goals, I have a few things I also want to get better at.
There are three of them.
#1. Drink More Water
I need to get better at drinking more water.
Don't get me wrong, I don't drink soda or anything bad. I just need to drink MORE.
It is SO important to drink plenty of water and I'm not always the best at drinking enough.
My muscles can get so tight and my flexibility quite poor.
I need to set time aside in the evenings to stretch my achy muscles and work on my flexibility.
#3. Time & Record
I wish I had been keeping track of my workout times and weight I've been lifting.
I want to get a little notebook specifically for my crossfit workouts so I can record everything.
I'm going to begin timing my workouts as well writing down the amount of weights I lift.
I should have been doing it all along! It would help me see if or how much I have improved.
I'm excited to begin recording everything so I can see my progress on paper!
It reminds me that I am my own competitor.
I don't need to beat anyone's time except for my own previous time.
For the next month, I'm going to really focus on these 3 areas.
Feel free to join me if you need a boost in these areas as well.
If you think you are already great at drinking a lot of water, stretching plenty, and recording...
What other areas do you have to work on??
