Guess what?  CrossFit is tough.  Guess what, again?  Losing weight is tough.  Let’s keep this going.

Guess what, guess what, guess what???

  • Being consistent is tough
  • Making it through a WOD is tough
  • Being confident is tough
  • Believing in myself is tough
  • LIFE is tough

There’s always going to be something in life that is tough.  Does that mean you give up just because things get tough?  Nope.  Although tonight, I seriously wanted to quit on round 7.  Somehow I made it to round 10.  I was ticked – physically and emotionally spent – but made it to the last round.


Tonight, ugh, tonight was the first night I cried during and after a WOD in a LONG time.  It was also the first night in a long time that a “Come to Jesus Meeting” was needed.  As soon as I started crying, I was pissed.  I told myself months ago that I was done crying at CrossFit.  So of course when the tears started flowing, they flowed even harder because I was mad at myself for actually “going there” and crying.  Ugh, but whatever – it happened.


The only thing I can do now is suck it up and move on, show up for my WOD on Thursday and do the dang thing!

    I cried at my fifth class a few weeks ago….in front of the hottie instructor…if that makes you feel any better. 😉

    Thanks for the post! I’ve been avoiding going back to my CrossFit class the past couple weeks because I’ve been discouraged, but this reminds me that anything worth having you have to work for. Keep up the great work 🙂

      Believe me, I totally understand being discouraged. Try and push through it. If you can push through the discouragement and get back in it – you can definitely push harder during that tough WOD. It’s all about growth! You can do this!!!!
