A New Journey: 8/6/2012

   It should come as no surprise that I am not happy with my body and have been praying for motivation and strength to do something to change myself. Well, my prayers have been answered as I was selected to participate in a ninety day CrossFit challenge! I had no idea what I was getting myself into until after I was selected. I read over the obligations and rewards of the challenge, we (the lucky ones who were selected) will work out three times a week, have before and after photos taken, and get a makeover at the end of the challenge. This is all being put together by a local magazine here in Boerne. I don't start my journey until September 3rd but I am already very anxious to begin. I've told family and a few friends, everyone seems to be very happy for me but I've also been caught off guard with the "Do you even know what CrossFit is?" question. Truth is, no I didn't. Holy Moly I have been doing research and can I just tell you now I can't even do a push-up, not even a girl push-up. When asked to rate my athletic ability I ranked myself a two- I can breathe and walk. My body is going to be shocked if I don't do some prep work! Below are some photos of people doing the CrossFit workouts. I will definitely keep everyone posted on this blessing I have been given!
