Oh geez. It’s seriously the *end* of summer.
But really, it’s been quite an adventurous break. I look forward to my routines, continuing with my fitness, and to saying “no” more often so that I might have some free time. 🙂
Speaking of “fitness” – I’ve been posting on Instagram
lately about the progress I’ve made with my workouts. I’ve been attending rollerderby practices
3-4 times a week for 3 years now. My body became accustomed to this routine…I noticed I was gaining weight back about a year ago, which is when I stepped it up and joined CrossFit.
My legs have been pretty beastly for a while thanks to rollerderby. But my entire torso/upper body wasn’t getting as much work as it needed. I’ve been completely amazed by the progress I’ve been making with CrossFit…and I feel like I only recently noticed it [after I finally did a pull-up!].
My weakness: FOOD.
I can’t seem to keep a stable diet.
Before the wedding, I spent a couple months on the Revolt Now Fitness
plan. It worked wonders! Time to get back on it
…now that we are back to the routine on Monday!
I will also admit that continuously working on myself has drastically improved my self-esteem. Joining rollerderby empowered me. Joining CrossFit made me feel okay in a bathing suit…sometimes [as opposed to NEVER]. Granted as soon as I have to take a break [vacation, etc] I spiral into “ew, I feel gross.” Haha 🙂
