I am drinking the Kool-Aid

The Crossfit Kool-Aid that is.

When it comes to fitness, I quit everything. I put forth minimal effort and cut corners where I can. During cross country in high school as soon as we ran behind the foliage I would walk. When a coach would tell me to do 100 sit ups I’d do 25. In Yoga, I go into child’s pose more than anyone else. In spin, I barely turn my resistance up as soon as I start to feel tired. But, because my metabolism no longer is working with my lax lifestyle, I had to join something I couldn’t quit. Financially, there is no point in quitting Crossfit. It’s too expensive to not do it.

Fast forward 2 weeks. Now, it’s not even about the money or being skinny. I don’t want to quit/cheat on the WOD’s. Today, my coach got sidetracked by someone coming in to inquire about his gym. I easily could have pretended my 50 single jump ropes were 100, and gone on to something else. I wanted to. I felt like puking. But I didn’t. And I didn’t really want to. Because I wanted to finish the WOD, even if I did way less reps than everyone else. Even if I had my exercises scaled waaaaay back. I want to finish the WOD, finish it strong, and get better. And every day Crossfit sucks, but I can’t wait to go back. Not because I want to be skinny, or because I pay a lot of money, but because I want to be better than I was the day before. And I have never, ever felt like that.

At this point, if I don’t lose another pound, but can increase my lifting, that’s a way cooler accomplishment.

My YA summer

I finished Gayle Forman’s “Just One Day” last night. I loveloveloooooved “If I Stay”/”Where She Went” but this one wasn’t one of my favorites. I didn’t love Alyson’s narrative voice until towards the end. And as far as European fictional boyfriends go.. St. Clair from AATFK has Willem beat, IMO.

I didn’t want to go through the longing of another year apart (Forman does an excellent job of making the heartbreak feel so real) so I skipped straight to “Just One Night” mostly because I wanted some gratification after 200 pages of missing Willem. Also, it was 235 AM.

My favorite YA book of the summer is still “The Program.” Dystopian novels are a little out of control right now but this one was awesome.. And maybe a little different than the rest. And man oh man.. Talk about fictional boyfriends…..
