Eating Zone: Postponed!

30 May

As much as I want to continue eating Zone right now, and show you all the progress that can be made from week to week, I’ve come to the realization that I chose the wrong time to start. I had to be honest with myself before I failed at what I set out to prove. The thing is, I’m just too busy! I know this sounds like an excuse, but let me explain. Of course I’m not too busy to eat healthy (that goes without saying), but I am too busy (right now) to measure out the food. Sometimes I’m even too busy to grocery shop, and worse: too busy to eat every meal I’ve planned out. My sleep has suffered due to studying for finals, preparing for a move, taking on extra side jobs in addition to my full-time job, and other various things happening in my life that suck up every minute of my day. So the time I would have spent in the kitchen measuring everything out, is now used for whatever sleep I can squeeze in, which has been around 6 hours or less each night, and believe me when I say, it’s showing (on my face, and in my WODs).  I’m an 8 hour kind of girl, so this (temporary) adjustment has severely altered my life, and so basically I’m in survival mode at this point.

The good news is, I will pick it back up in a couple of weeks, and resume where I left off with photos, meal break downs etc. But I wanted to say thank you for following along, and being supportive. In the meantime, I hope I can inspire & motivate in other ways.

CrossFit Anywhere: No Excuses

24 Apr

I’m constantly inspired by people who refuse to let physical or geographical obstacles keep them from doing what they truly love. Rain, shine, snow, desert, war, home, missing leg … it doesn’t matter. When you want something bad enough, you will always, always find a way. What’s your excuse?

A Little Pick-Me-Up

I never got around to writing about my hand injury. Sorry about that! The truth is I’m going through some major personal stuff, and I just don’t have it in me right now to write everything I want to say. I really wish I could, because I know it would make me feel better. But for now, I’m going to skim by with these cute little inspirational posters to let you know I’m still here, albiet a little tired & slightly lost. Anyway, cheers to the weekend! xo

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. – Dr. Wayne Dyer
