So here we are at the precipice of 2017. I’m so ready to say goodbye to 2016 because what I THOUGHT was going to be a great year, full of PMA, gains, goals and greatness, basically fell apart and I was left with depression, anxiety, bills and a marriage that very nearly disintegrated.
Throughout the year, the one constant was CrossFit. Not that I felt that I was getting anywhere with it, but I kept going. It was the one place where I knew things weren’t going to change. I would show up, I would either walk out feeling like crap at my performance, or feeling on top of the world at my performance. There was nothing in the middle and I was perfectly okay with this. In fact, I needed this consistency in my otherwise chaotic life. (Don’t get me wrong, the things that happened were total #firstworldproblems and I am well aware so many others have it worse).
My Partner in Crime, my CrossFit Sista, my dear friend challenged me with setting some goalz (I think the z is more positive, right?!), and after a year of simply getting by, she’s right. I need goalz, or I will spend another year of few gains. And I don’t want gains; I want GAINZ!!
CrossFit goalz (there are so many, but I’m going to put just 4 into the world)…
- 300 pound back squat
- Sub 2-min 500m row
- Rope climb
- No more Diet Coke (ooooo…this one will hurt)
- No more alcohol (this was also the one constant this past year…this will also hurt)
- Hit my macros consistently (Sunday will be my biggest challenge)
- Cheat meals are occasional again
- I’m on sabbatical this semester, so setting AND KEEPING a regular schedule
- Save enough for CrossFit Level 1 Certification (I don’t want to coach, I just need to know all the things…)
- Pay down the seemingly insurmountable debt that accrued from this past year
- Simplify my life, declutter, destress, live more purposefully
- Read more, Facebook less (yes, I know I said only four, but it’s my post and thus my rules)
And since Keri did one, I will too:
BIG, BOLD BODACIOUS GOAL – Find a way to reconnect with my family, my hubby in particular.
