After 1 Year of CrossFit
Hitting that one-year mark felt like a huge accomplishment. All the benefits I had been experiencing continued, and I felt so grateful for the inner strength and confidence I felt every day in the gym and in my life.
The absolute greatest benefit was the freedom I felt from the constant negative thoughts I used to have about my body, of always trying to lose weight and get leaner and more toned. Of incessantly thinking about food: what I should eat, what I shouldn't eat, feeling bad when I ate too much, and worrying about when I was going to fit in my next workout. And what I was doing wasn't working at all (screw you, marathon training!), so it was an amazing feeling to put in the effort and actually see results. I decided to sign up for a second year-long membership so I could crush some more goals!
