Monday, May 5 - I was not last

So today is probably the best day I've had in a month.   I was not last!  Now, for the most part, that sounds awful.  What kind of goal is that, really?  Not last?  That's a far cry from my normal over-achieving self. 

But today ladies and gentlemen, I managed to not be last, I wasn't even second to last.  When you see the athletes I train with, you will jump for joy for me.   It has become some what of an expectation, that I just aim to do the work out.  I don't look at the clock.  I don't really care that people are out on their 3rd round and I just started my 2nd.  I'm in my own little sweaty world, but today, wow, what a feeling.

I rowed 400 meters and did 50 squats - 4 times.  As soon as I saw the work out I instantly knew what my blog post was going to be "200 squats - WTF?!"  That's before I came in "not last" and that was even a bigger deal.

I feel like I'm rocking the work outs - in my own slow and steady way.  What I really need to work to master is cutting the unnecessary processed carbs and fruits from my diet.  Starting tomorrow, I'm embarking on a 30 day challenge to go without those things.  To really eat cleanly and from the earth.  I tried a few weeks ago, did well for a few days, and then I went back to my old ways.  This time I need to succeed - I WILL succeed.  But more on that later this week.

I can go to bed feeling very successful this evening.  Thanks Crossfit!
