Yes, we like to reference throwback rap songs. We both thought of this exact title separately, so of course we had to roll with it! ?
Well, the time has come for our oldest, Cooper, to return to preschool next week, which means my excuse for not going to Crossfit will expire.
Our gym doesn’t have childcare. The thought of having a 3 1/2 year old running around while having to potentially tend to a crying infant in the stroller off to the side doesn’t sound fun. At all.
So I knew that I wouldn’t be able to return to the gym until he went back to school. Morgan still could potentially make it difficult, but I did it with Cooper at this age, so I am determined to try it again.
Plus, we have the most amazing coaches there and I know they won’t give me the side eye and wish I wasn’t there if she starts fussing. They want nothing more than for us to come back and we are so grateful to them for that!
So, what are my thoughts on going back?
I’m nervous!!! I would be lying if I said I wasn’t. I haven’t stepped foot in that gym in a year now. I’m the most out of shape now than I have ever been and on top of that, dealing with some ab separation from my pregnancy with Morgan.
I feel like I have the cards stacked against me.
There will be days I want to throw in the towel. There will be days that I will probably cry in frustration for ever quitting and now having to rebuild my strength. There will be workouts that I want to quit because they are hard as hell!
All that to say, it will be absolutely, positively, WORTH IT!
I am starting back on this Crossfit journey knowing exactly what I’m getting myself back into, and I am so happy. Because I know that I have never felt better than when I did at our box. Not just physically, but mentally too.
The companionship of our 9:30am class is something I have missed so much. And even if it means that some days I will have to quit mid workout to tend to Morgan and come back when Jared can watch her, I am so ready!
We will be doing a post on our starting “physique” (if that’s what you want to call our out-of-shape bodies right now) and keeping up with progress posts along the way, so stay tuned!
