Last night, this happened.

Little ol’ me + CrossFit.

About time, don’t ya think? I’ve only been talking about it for months.

And… I liked it. I like it a LOT. I think I may have a crush.

For those of you who are curious about CrossFit and want to try, but are terrified… Well, let me tell you – I never, ever thought I’d say that I enjoyed lifting heavy stuff and doing things like high knees, but I mean it. When Penpal had originally suggested I try it back when we were dating (he was an avid CrossFitter as are many of his buddies), I thought he was insane. I’m a yoga, running kind of girl…… Not a throw around double my body weight til I want to puke kind of girl. You know?

But back to last night: I was scared. I was sweating before we even started (always a good sign). Flashbacks from my intro class in July crept back in to my head. And did I mention I was hungry, too?

But then…… BOOM. Box jumps and squats? BRING IT ON.

Granted I was just in day one of my beginners’ two week program, but there’s something about it that I really enjoyed (the music.. the awesome coaches.. the intensity..?) and I’m stoked to get back to the box (what they refer to a CrossFit gym as) tomorrow night. Did I really just say that?


Let’s see if my IT band  and quads appreciates it later today.


Have you tried CrossFit or have any interest in it? What’d you think if you have?

    Love it! So glad you had fun! I hate box jumps. I’m always afraid i will trip and hit my face on the box on my way down. I have tripped a few times and have always managed to spare my face. I hope my luck continues!
