I get asked this question at least once a week and I am always 100% honest in saying a big fat NOPE. โฃ
โฃ
I do CrossFit too. I used to feel like I had to hide that, or pretend like I only did 21 Day Challenges at home, but hereโ€™s the deal; I am a HUGE believer of finding what works for YOU and running with it. โฃ
โฃ
For some thatโ€™s the gym, others itโ€™s at home workouts, for everyone it REQUIRES support & community to stick with it. โฃ
โฃ
CrossFit has become my therapy. โฃ
Teaching group fitness classes is part of my job. โฃ
Working out at home has been another added way to improve my results. โฃ
โฃ
And hereโ€™s a really cool fact, when I started incorporating more of the at-home workouts I get my clients set up with, I started seeing huge changes in my body AND my fitness started to improve. โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s something I donโ€™t think I share enough and want to be genuinely honest about. โฃ

GROW

โฃโฃI always used to believe life would go DOWNHILL as I got older. โฃโฃ

Iโ€™d lose my fitness. โฃโฃ
Hate my body even more. โฃโฃ
Be disappointed with where I had ended up. โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
Now I CHOOSE to see things differently. โฃโฃ
I am nowhere near where I thought I would be in life at this point. โฃโฃ
I most certainly do not have it all figured out. โฃโฃ
But every year I learn a little more. โฃโฃ
Get a little stronger. โฃโฃ
Find a little more confidence… โฃ

And Iโ€™ll be honest for the longest time I wasnโ€™t… โฃ
at all. โฃ
โฃ
But then as I slowly got my shit together, I started to feel pieces falling into place. โฃ
Yet I remained terrified to admit that I was in fact happy. โฃ
โฃ
Maybe it was the thought that my world would come crashing down if I did admit it… โฃ
Maybe it was guilt for everyone I knew who was struggling…โฃ
But I found myself purposely starting to search for things that were going wrong instead of ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜บ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ everything that was going right. โฃ

We live in a world that thrives off of being busy, stressed, unhappy, pissed off. โฃ

โฃ
But for the most part I am genuinely happy. Because I choose to be. Every day. And you can too. โฃ

In the past, Iโ€™ve let moving get me completely off track with my fitness journey. โฃ
