From My Beginning To Yours - Blog #37


Eight weeks ago I set out to complete my 1st whole life challenge through CrossFit TNT. The tone of this challenge, to me, felt vastly different from other challenges I've participated in. For about the first two weeks I was strictly dedicated to the process as well as the very specific diet restrictions. I even took a paleo cake in a cup to my monthly girls night. Hopeful for fat shredding and booty sculpting I ate my cake in a cup instead of enjoying homemade chocolate sheet cake. Somewhere about the time of the Festivus Games, I felt that familiar pressure of extreme dieting and essentially gave up. Yes, I understand that paleo and whole 30 eating is a way of life and many aspects I have implemented into my daily routine, however, I can't fail to recognize the nature of my response to this challenge.

This entire journey for me is about being the best ME I can be and setting a good example for my kids. Learning my strengths and weaknesses and improving upon them. Making choices everyday to be a better, healthier me than I was yesterday. I, without a doubt could have done better, made better choices to stick it out for the last 6 weeks instead of moderately following the guidelines. This Saturday at TNT I will have a body fat retest (check out what it's all about at I know my results will be an improvement from the last time and that's all that matters. This is a journey and a lifetime commitment, not a sprint.

I would never have thought that having a fitness family could be so important. I just want to say that as a woman, wife, mother...basically, as a human being, I'm so grateful to have fallen into such an inspiring, caring group of people. We have just this one life. I am not perfect and some days I probably down right suck but I still feel good about me and all the I have and continue to work to accomplish in regards to improving and maintaining my health. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to do this with! The only one we are missing is you! Yes, you! What are you waiting for? Come check us out for free!
