I just finished burpees r us workout at the Crossfit gym. I really need to learn how to do double unders! The upside is 600+ calories burned according to my fitness watch. There is no way I wasn't going to finish that workout. I was the only one in the class who didn't know how to do double unders, so I was the only one going through burpee hell. I am not going to listen to the little negative voice in my head telling me how overweight I am or how I am so much older than everyone else at this Crossfit gym. I may have been the last one to finish, but I finished. I am much stronger than I look. I am mentally stronger and I will be physically stronger because I will not give up. I will not give in to the little negative voice in my head. I have a good marriage to a husband who wants me around and healthy. My children want me around too. The trainers at the gym are helping me to fill in a hole that I have dug through self neglect for 20+ years. It's my job to do what I need to do to climb out.
