Life Lessons From CrossFit
Over my two-year journey, I learned that I'm stronger than I think and that I have the capacity to push myself past my comfort zone. I learned that I really like how a barbell feels in my hands, that I'm actually a little competitive, and that when I'm doing CrossFit regularly, I feel my best.
As a woman who has struggled with body-image issues her whole life, it brings tears to my eyes to think that, thanks to CrossFit, I'm not hung up about the number of pounds on the scale, but am now more concerned with the number of pounds I can lift. It's a huge breakthrough! And as a mother of a daughter, I love that I can lead by example and show her how awesome it is for a woman to be strong.
I'm excited to see what the next year brings, to crush some more goals (muscle up, you crazy complex exercises — I'm coming for ya!), and to continue getting stronger.
