Hey guys! I’m popping in to share a quote inspired by the end of the CrossFit Open. I haven’t talked about it much here on the blog, but I have enjoyed participating these past 5 weeks even though I’m not really “competing” on any level.
The games gave me the same feeling as running an event. I know I’m not going to “win” and I don’t need to. I just want to do a little better than I did the last time. It —running, lifting, yoga, etc.— really comes down to this for me,
“I am stronger than I was yesterday but not as strong as I will be tomorrow” — Unknown
That pretty much sums up my motivation. I now thrive on this concept and it gets me to the gym almost daily. It gets me out the door for a morning run. And tonight, it got me to yoga even though I had a hard time peeling myself away from work.
I think I may be finally over letting my past dictate my future, and I’m embracing this about myself. I AM stronger than I was yesterday and I should be proud of that, not fearful of it.
Wow. I’m not sure where that came from! I really didn’t mean to get too deep. Hmm, let’s see. What else can I talk about?
I also posted a quick apple salad idea on GreenLiteBites yesterday as well as a fun announcement about the new design I’m working on.
The only other thing hanging over my head is FitBloggin‘ and I have so many balls in the air it’s not funny. I’m hoping to make some serious progress next week.
OK, bedtime. Have a great weekend. I’ll “see” you Sunday!
