So about a month ago I found out I was pregnant! Which is the absolute best thing that could have possibly happened to me and my husband! I am 10 weeks this week.
As some of you know I have been a devoted CrossFitter for a little over a year now. Before my CrossFit days I was a certified gym rat for a long time. I just love living the fit lifestyle. And I plan on having a fit and healthy pregnancy too. I am just having a hard time keeping myself interested in CrossFit right now. I find myself wanting to run and do yoga on my own instead. It’s hard keeping a WOD schedule while I’m pregnant. I usually go at 9am 4-5 times a week. Right now the only thing I want to do at 9am every day is watch the news and try to wake up! Being pregnant is no joke! It’s an exhaustion unlike any other. People always tell you what it’s like, but you’ll never ever know until it’s actually your turn.
So I have decided to put my CrossFit membership on hold until after the baby comes. I also feel like it’s expensive and I really need to be banking that money right now.
I’ll keep my blog updated throughout with pics and such!
I just want to say that I go on vacation every year, but this will be the 1st year I go with confidence about my body and WOD gear packed in my suitcase!! I’ve been doing the 30 day Paleo challenge all of February and I feel great! This is not a diet, it’s life! And when the 30 days is up, I’ll still be Paleo. Why? Because I love the way it’s made me feel :)
…especially when it comes to fitness. You won’t get better if you keep looking at someone else’s numbers.
I notice too many people trying to one up others, lift heavier, do more reps, finish a RFT faster. Of course it’s about being better.. but only being better than yourself! No one else. I’m obviously proud of the things I achieve in CrossFit. Sure, I’ll send a text to someone when I get a PR! Or post a photo I’m proud of on Instagram. But never will I rub something in someone else’s face that I’ve done better than them. And people (women are the only people who do this) who do it are annoying.
Go to the box, worry about yourself. Get shit done!
