I don’t even do CrossFit, but I watched the end of the 2018 CrossFit Games today, because my brother was super excited about it, and he attended it all weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. Not even four minutes into it, I was balling. And, from that point onward, I continued having bouts of extreme tears all over the place until the very end of the Games. It’s just that kind of thing. I’ve done and been part of plenty of sports to be able to relate to so many of the feelings and situations and emotions, that I felt as though I could feel their struggles and successes. Add the comments about how the whole goal of doing CrossFit is to be better as a person than one was yesterday, and it’s just a total tear fest.
I’m still not sure that I want to do CrossFit myself, but it was really neat to watch the nonsense that was the final round of the 2018 CrossFit Games.
That feeling when you’re ready for bed, but realize that you need another half hour’s worth of steps to reach your daily step goal….
And then, that feeling a half hour later, when you actually turn out the lights to go to sleep, after having kept your commitment to reach your step goal every day, including today.
Keep at it, y’all. ❤
Sometimes, getting creative can be useful not only for the immediate goal, but also for a secondary but equally important one. You see, I didn’t have all my steps in for the day (based on my step goal on my fabulous FitBit) this evening, and so I was pacing forward and backward while talking with my mom. She told me that it was just too weird that I was doing that – literally walking forward and then reversing, while still facing and talking with her – and that I needed to stop walking like that. And so, I got creative. I walked at least five different ways that did not involve a forward-backward trek, and asked my mom how each one was. On the really fast shuffled steps, neither one of us could hold it together – it was just too funny. And so, by being creative and silly, I not only moved my step count closer to my step goal for the day, but I also created an opportunity for my mom and me to bond a little bit more. Mind, body, and soul are doing well. Healthy on all fronts tonight! 😛
I started doing all of this activity in order to help my body be happy, healthy, holy…, but now my body really just hurts all over, almost all of the time.
Sometimes, life is just exhausting, – especially when doing it well – and we need to relax.
I normally love rainstorms…, but this has really put a drag on my steps for today…
Fitbit just might have made me even more crazy than I already was…, but it might also have been doomed ever since I was the one who put on that little bracelet. 😛
I am becoming the person I want to be in the future, by being the person I want to be now.
And it feels good.
(Though, my legs are totally sore, and some of my other muscles, too.) 😛
