My attempts to bring out the best in me.

And she’s back!

Yeah, I apparently disappeared from the world for a while. But I’m back…and better faster stronger than before.

A lot has changed since the last time I updated, and I’m not going to rehash all of that. I’m going to start with NOW, because that’s what’s important. I will say that I just got my personal training certification in August…and I have four clients already, which is a pretty good start I’d say. I’ve also taken up a whole different style of my own training…

Enter CrossFit. There is no going back. I have never been so pushed in my life, so drained, so challenged and so accomplished all at the same time. It’s a focus on metabolic conditioning with strength bias, and I’ve been doing this for a month. My diet is 90% Paleo, and my workouts are spot on and intense as hell. And my body? It’s responding with an insane quickness.

But mostly, I’m having FUN with it which is SO important. It’s not about the vanity behind it…It’s about being better today than you were yesterday; it’s about leaving the gym (or the garage, some days) knowing you’re a happier, healthier, fitter person than you were when you got there; about having a better time and moving more weight than last time. It’s You vs. You.

So here’s to hoping this one will last a little better than the last go ’round…I’ve got big plans, big hopes! Here goes nothing…
