Choosing a Happy Balance!

April 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Everyday we have a choice. We can choose to view things in a happy positive manner or we can choose to look at them in a negative kind of way. We can also choose how we look at ourselves. Are we always thinking poorly- like I could have done more- or are we thinking, “gee I did that well today?”

As many of you know, I have been competing in the CrossFit Games Open. I am part of an eleven person team and we are competing for a spot at the Regionals held in mid June at Cal State Long Beach. There are four girls and 7 guys on our team. I am by far- Not The Strongest One! I’m also 13+ years older than all my teammates! The last two weeks of workouts have been brutal for me. They in my mind are almost epic in difficulty. Both have involved heavy lifting…such as 110 pound Clean and Jerks and 90 pound Overhead Squats! The good news was that I am strong enough to pick up the weight, the bad news is that I am not strong enough to “rep it” in any significant capacity! These types of strengths workouts are what send me to the “back of the pack” so to speak. There have been a few days where I just felt bad about my lack of strength! It usually takes me a couple of days to get my happy attitude back especially when I compare myself to the other girls!

Now, we have two more workouts left to do and both will be released tonight. I can either sit here and be scared or I can go about my business and take it in-stride…it’s just another workout, Rachel!
