As of Tuesday, January 3,2017 I became an official member of Crossfit OD. Last week was my trial to see how I liked things. This is how amazing God is! I was blessed to have a whole year paid for me! Yes you read that right! I still tear up just thinking about it! Like I mentioned earlier my Older brother and sis in law had invited me to try out. Everyone made me feel so welcome and they continue to encourage me as I keep showing up. Coach Carrie is so amazing, though I am still getting to know her she makes me feel motivated! What I am loving about crossfit so far is the challenge and watching myself learn new techniques. I never in a thousand years thought I would love wall balls, to be honest I always hated them, but this past week every wall ball I had to do felt like I was accomplishing so much.
One of the toughest things for myself is getting past my own insecurities and fears of perusing this life changing commitment to healthiness. Reminding myself to take it one day at a time has helped me be patient. Wouldn’t it be awesome if the pounds just melted off right away? Only in a perfect world, which we do not live in. Not just that, then we would never learn self-control or discipline. I used to be so frustrated with this struggle I have with food, because I was afraid of people seeing my weaknesses. Now I just hope that this journey will encourage someone who has the same struggle as me and know that they can do it. No matter how heavy you are, just start somewhere. Don’t give up. God has a plan for you and I. Changes are not always easy, but I believe it is worth the journey.
Having my siblings (my sister in laws are included as my siblings, they are awesome!) there with me at Crossfit has given me so much motivation everyday to continue this journey. I seriously feel beyond blessed to have the support system I do behind me. I feel like it is so crucial to have people who will encourage you, pray for you, motivate you, keep it real with you, and help you stay accountable not just in a fitness journey, but in everyday life. God is faithful, and my prayer is that I will continue to be also in all ways.
Jesus loves you so much! Have a great rest of the week!
