First whiff of crossfit

7 Sep

And another week just flew by. Whooooosh, did you see that? For the first time in 3 months I was able to slow down a bit at work. Bliss! I noticed the difference when I came home on Friday. A week ago I came home, ate, cried and fell asleep. Now I felt relaxed, watched some tv, talked to a friend and gently went into the weekend.

Ahhhhh relaaaaxxxxx. Well that was until my cat woke me up at stupid o’clock demanding attention and food. Sigh. Oh well….

Last Wednesday my friend told me she was going for her first crossfit workout since her vacation. Do I want to come watch? I told her I’m interested in starting but I was nervous about what kind of people would be around there. I think that’s every newbie’s nightmare. Especially when you’re a fatty. So, I went to meet my friend at the box. Just to check the place out.

It was awesome. Lots of different types of people. Although I have to admit, I didn’t see any really overweight people. But then again, I hardly see overweight people at my regular gym either. I talked to a few people there and everyone was friendly, encouraging and motivating. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the crossfit community and I think those stories are actually true.

I watched the WOD and thought: I want to do that. I want to kick myself into shape in a way that 45 minutes on the elleptical trainer just doesn’t do for me.

So, I’m going to do a free trial session and then take it from there. The box is pretty much next to where I work so no excuses there.

Am I excited? yes. Am I terrified? Hell yes!

Has anyone seen my patience?

28 Feb

Patience is a virtue, they say. In some situations I amaze myself with the amount of patience I have. You need something untied and it’s a horrible mess? Give it to me and I’ll untangle it for you, no matter how long it takes.

So I do have patience. Well, some. Right now, I’m lacking patience though. I had a job interview last Thursday. It went great and I think I have a really good chance of getting it. But she had to interview about 4 other people, so I wouldn’t hear until during this week, to find out if I get a second interview.

It’s only Tuesday. I said to myself I shouldn’t expect to hear anything sooner than Wednesday. But I’m nervous. I want to know! I want this job, I’m the best person for it. And I think I really made that point during the interview. I couldn’t have done a better job than I did.

So I tell myself to stay calm, wait, be patient and be positive. Now if only I can get myself to listen to me.

Patience is a virtue. Who came up with that line?
