Amanda M...Day 68, 69 and 70

Hey hey hey! Busy was insane this weekend and is going to be insane again this week. They are having me come in for 7 am this week instead of 8, I hope it doesnt mess up my internal schedule. Going in on 630 Friday was quite the struggle. By 2:30 I was dying for a nap. However, I wasn't eating the best so that probably had something to do with it.

Ate horrible again this weekend. I'm realizing that I'm doing that whole sabotage thing and will be putting an end to it immediately. Back at strict paleo starting tomorrow. At least I was still working out 5 times a week right? lol

Already saw the crossfit blog for tomorrow, awesome post Kathy! I find myself talking about Crossfit CONSTANTLY, I cant help it!! It has done so many amazing things for my life both physically and mentally. Everyone always asks why I pay so much for CFM when I can do the same things at a cheaper gym. I try not to say it but there's just no other way to get the point across..."its not just a gym..." and then they roll their eyes and finish my sentence in a mocking tone "its a lifestyle!"

I will go into further detail in my personal blog but I'll share what my mother said to me the other day. During 12.2, Liz recorded me doing my 69th rep (100lb snatch). I sent it to both my parents and both of them told me how they cried when they watched it. I laughed at the thought, thinking they were just being their cute selves but my mother went into her reasons why: it was because my whole life I have shied away from the spotlight. I did tons of sports but never had the guts to compete in front of people. I always found an excuse to skip a dance recital or miss a swim meet. She said that hearing all those people cheer for me brought her to tears knowing that I finally found something I love and something I'm proud to show off. I have the best parents <3 She couldn't be more right. I live for this. I have never been more in love with something than what I do everyday at 530 pm. Crossfit and CFM will forever be a part of my life.
