Strong and determined

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

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.

    Your determination and attitude is inspiring! Burpees are no one's favorite; in our gym we have to do triple single skips if we can't do DUs. I am trying to learn to do double unders, I had them and then lost them when I broke my ankle (on the farm- not at Crossfit). emoticon

    You go!!! You can do it! Your post is motivating. I know it's difficult to feel like you're behind everyone else's progress but just remember they started somewhere behind where they are now too. Keep up with your awesome attitude and you can do anything you set your mind to!!!
