Crossfit one week down

I started Crossfit last Monday and went for 5 days, my very first time! I have to say I fell in  love with it day one! It's the most challenging thing I've ever done, and I've been working out very consistently and hard for almost a year now. 

What I love most about it is I'm in competition with myself and beating my own personal bests! Yesterday we did kettle bell swings normally I do 25 lbs. Well the owner/trainer said "why don't you try 35's, you're pretty strong" so you know what? I did it! Not only that, but I NEVER run! And since being in Crossfit I have run a lot! But I'm finding that I'm pushing myself to run more and more. It's amazing what your body can do when your mind tells it to just do it! 

I've done things I've never done before, and things I wouldn't normally do without the extra push! I'm loving every bit of this and can't wait to see what other new changes my body will make. Best thing at the end of class was hearing the trainer tell me "You're really strong! Stronger than most" Sometimes I don't give myself enough credit and I forget about the girl last July that could only lift 10-15 lbs, couldn't do any jumping workouts, could barely do cardio on the elliptical to now being good at Crossfit! If you have a dream, and think it's impossible.........break down the word to "I'm possible" and remember "The body achieves what the mind believes." Sometimes we forget how truly strong we are, we just need to believe in ourselves. This picture below is day one crossfit, I will take another progress pic after day 30! Stay tuned.

New experiences in my new lifestyle!

What a great week this has been so far! Today I got accepted to be an Ambassador for Girls Gone Sporty, and I couldn't be more excited to be accepted to their team! Check them out, www.girlsgonesporty.com and my username is AJilityfitness. Well yesterday I did Crossfit with my family; the last time I tried crossfit was last year when I was out of shape, and needless to say I was apprehensive to try it again. But I pushed through my fear of trying something new and out of my comfort zone and I was so impressed with my own skills, I didn't know I had it in me. So tonight I will be going back for more! I think this will definitely be something new and exciting for me in the world of fitness. So if there's something you've been wanting to try but are afraid of it, I suggest just going for it! You might surprise yourself. So cheers to new experiences and overcoming fears! Never look back, you can do anything with belief in yourself. http://forum.girlsgonesporty.com/members/ajilityfitness
