But that wasn't the end. After another year of him asking me to do Crossfit and me not wanting to do Crossfit we put our kids in Crossfit kids. They don't really play sports and we wanted them doing something active! They seemed to do well and like it and then their Crossfit place (different than my husband's) started a bootcamp.
My husband started asking again if I might be interested in bootcamp since it was a good introductory way to get into Crossfit without the heavier weights. I told him I would go if he would go with me! And so we did - the first of January we both went to bootcamp and it worked out great because it was at the same time as the kids' workout. I LOVED bootcamp. I loved it. I couldn't believe I liked it but I did. It definitely challenged me like I hadn't been challenged before.
After loving bootcamp and going VERY faithfully (more faithfully than any other fitness program I'd ever done EVER!), my husband decided to go to the Crossfit side and not do bootcamp anymore. I was scared but I wanted to do Crossfit too and felt it was time.
We started Crossfit in March (I think). And since starting it I am amazed at the things I have learned!
I learned to climb a rope - something I have never done.
I got my first rope climb tonight at Crossfit. Okay so I actually got the first rope climb of my life because I've never really done them. You're never too old to start doing something you've never tried before. Also that's a lot higher than it looks. I didn't panic until my second one when I was almost to the top and my husband said, "Don't fall." He's super helpful lol. #crossfitnewbie #crossfitbeginner #ropeclimb #crossfit #fitmoms #fitness #momfitness
I am starting to learn how to do hand stands in the hopes of doing hand stand push ups.
My husband is helping me work on my hand stand push ups - starting with descending slow. We know how to party on a Friday night don't we? Just to let you know I've never really done handstands either. I have always been afraid of them. Maybe fear of breaking my neck or something. But there's no time like the present to start doing something you've never done before. #workonthosegoals #crossfitbeginner #handstands #watchmestruggle
I did a workout Monday that I never thought I would be capable of.
Remembering those that gave their lives for our country! This is my first year doing Murph. I'm so thankful @aslmelissa encouraged me to do this because I wouldn't have done it without her. "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 Remember and be thankful today! In honor of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, NY, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. #murph #happymemorialday #john1513 #Crossfit #modified #momsgetfit
Insane right? I've learned so much. And I have to tell my husband I'm sorry for all the times I made fun of Crossfit and told him all the bad things that I read about Crossfit.. I never understood it until I did it. Now I literally wake up excited to go workout. Like I used to be excited to wake up to coffee and now I am excited to wake up and get to do Crossfit at some point in the day. How crazy is that?
I can't believe how hard it is and how much I love it at the same time. Crossfit is for regular people. It makes regular people - amazing people. It makes you do things you never thought you could accomplish. It makes me feel more alive that I have ever felt. I can't say enough good things about it. I heart Crossfit.
