New Year – What a Difference Maker

reebok nano crossfit shoess loveHappy New Year!!!! I took 5 days off around the holidays but right afterwards got back into the swing of things. I really don’t have any fitness resolutions beyond wanting to keep doing what I am doing now and improve and PR as much as I can. I also want to join the Elite CrossFit program at my gym this year, which means I need to come up with money for the higher price tag AND test out on my lifts. I am confident I can do it though.

I absolutely love all the new people coming to the box. It’s a new year, which always means new people but our box also offered a Groupon deal and all the new blood is inspiring and fun. The only thing CrossFitters love to do more than CrossFit is talk about CrossFit right???? Well, I do my best to make the newbies feel welcome and appreciated so that they keep coming back.

Today was an especially awesome day. I got my workout in (+ I PRd) and then I got a manicure, pedicure, and a massage! I wish every day could be like that, LOL.
