Though I was very well aware of the fact that I had very little time to get Leo from school and leave for my Crossfit orientation at Push 511, I spent my afternoon working instead of planning and cooking a meal we can all eat. So what happens, I get to Leo's school and I start realistically calculating the time it still takes us to get home, get a 2 and 4.5 year old into the house, and into the kitchen, and cook and eat and leave to get there on time -not going to happen.
So, what do I do, go to the McDonald's drive through. :-( Bad for kids, bad for me!
The good news is, as I was eating it - I thought - this isn't very good. And all evening I've been feeling the digestive issues it's been causing. Funny, how I never noticed that before.
Lesson learned - the hard way.
Tomorrow's dinner plan - homemade breaded chicken fingers and green beans.
Today wasn't all bad - I went grocery shopping and managed to say no thank you to all of those previously tempting junk foods. So I will hang on to that win today.
But most importantly, I am SUPER excited about Crossfit. I'm still a little scared, but alot of the intimidation is gone. Though for the most part, my starting point is way below what the "goal" is, I was really afraid I wouldn't even have a starting point. Meaning - I couldn't even perform a modified version of the exercise. And today proved that I am still good at some of the skills - I'm a GREAT squater! and there is a starting point for me for even the most intimidating pull up. They had to pull out the seldom used heavy duty rubber band to get there, but I got a few in that way! I felt good.
I came home feeling really positive. The people I met there were super nice and supportive. I was among some very athletic people and never once did I feel judged or ridiculed. I felt people were genuinely happy to help me making positive changes in my life.
I feel like the physical aspect of my journey is taken care of so to speak. There is a plan. It's supported and easily executed (in terms of getting there) and all I have to do is for one hour per day work my tail off.
For me, I need to get some more support with changing my food habits. More to come on that.
