Here I am, again, on the eve of a CrossFit competition. If I sit back and really think about it, this feeling, this, right now, is why I love to push myself out of my comfort zone so much. Well, this combined with the feeling I’ll have afterwards.
It’s like 24 hours of pure adrenaline. It’s the same exact feeling I used to get before running events or on the starting line of a Tough Mudder.
I think I’m addicted to the feeling of attempting something I never thought I could even do.
Wow. That kind of just came out of me, and I think it’s the first time I’ve put into words what is truly behind my drive. Maybe it started with hitting my goal weight. Maybe that was the first accomplishment reached that I deemed impossible. Then it was running and conference planning and traveling and book publishing.
Hmm, I may have to explore these feelings a bit more but I can’t do it tonight. I’m too excited and I want to hang out with The Husband before it gets too late. Plus, I was really popping in to talk about pizza and wings and beer!
Instead of ordering in tonight (which is what The Husband wanted to do) I made a Friday night feast!
Whole wheat pizza (Trader Joe’s dough — love the stuff!) with a sprinkle of bacon bits and broccoli, homemade wings and homemade chicken fingers breaded in whole wheat flour and spices pan fried in coconut oil.
It was AWESOME! And we have enough leftovers to last us the weekend. Well, tomorrow at least.
As for the beer, well that’s what I’m enjoying now.
Sometimes you just need to kick back on a Friday night and chill.
I hope you have a great weekend planned. Wish me luck. I’m embarking on tomorrow’s competition alone!
