After 6 Months of CrossFit
Sharing the photos of my progress after six months with the world was hard. When I started my CrossFit journey to get completely ripped, I was convinced that after six months, I'd have amazing transformation photos to share. My body definitely didn't look as lean and sculpted as I expected it to.
At first I got really pissed at CrossFit. I was working out five days a week, getting up at 5 a.m., busting my ass doing a bazillion burpees, and eating clean and my body wasn't getting close to where I wanted it to be. I still had my baby belly, and I actually gained weight and my muscles grew. I was thicker all around, and even my sports bras were feeling tighter. WTH!
I was also experiencing amazing benefits. I was getting so much stronger, improving every week. I even climbed a 15-foot rope, did my first pull-up, and accomplished my first handstand push-up! I was feeling more energetic, more confident, and happier, all of which spread out into my life, my work, and my relationships. I realised that progress may have been slow, but it was still progress, so I kept at it.
