Well Bloggies… after six months of trying we’re putting Baby 2 on hold. I’ve decided that instead of sitting around waiting for something that might never happen before I start working on my other goals I should put some of my other goals a head of expanding our family. So in two weeks, if I’m not pregnant, I’ll be starting CrossFit training. I actually want to start this week, but I’m not going to go spending the membership fee and getting all hyped about a work out that I won’t be able to continue if I’m pregnant. lol. SO we wait for two more weeks.
It’s a little disappointing to sort of “give up” on Baby 2, but at the same time getting my physical health back up to par could be what’s missing from the equation. I’m not UNHEALTHY, in fact I’m quite fit considering I do the occasional aerobic work out here and there and house work. That’s really all my fitness routine consist of lol. Sure there are any number of things that I could do to lose a few pounds, but that’s not what fitness is really about, which is why I’m really looking forward to starting my CrossFit journey. I’ll get a little bit of everything quite literally thrown at me. lol.
From researching the program it looks brutal in the beginning, but once you actually break it down it’s not that bad. Difficult yes, but that’s what work outs are FOR. To do something difficult and built stamina and strength. I like the fact that unlike a personal trainer or open gym there is a precise plan laid out daily with precise movements at high intensity. I am a sprinter by nature, endurance is where it gets me. If I can do x amounts of lifts in x amounts of minutes I can work towards that easily. Doing x amount of lifts in x amounts of HOURS is where I get into trouble. It’s my attention span more than anything else. lol. I get bored with things quickly so having something constantly varied will keep up my motivation.
I also like the competitive aspect of it. Honestly, I really think it will help me keep my Hulk in check so to speak. lol. If I get upset instead of stewing and brooding I can head to the gym and take it out on some equipment and myself. Internalizing, but in a beneficial way. I don’t know…. Those are my goals anyway. We’ll see what happens over the next two weeks. lol. For all I know the pregnancy test will come back positive and all of this will be for naught. lol. Until later Bloggies. 🙂
