I love CrossFit.
However, it occurred to me today that I spend most of my time doing the exact opposite of CrossFit.
Here are a few examples...
At CrossFit: "I might use the 30 inch plyo box today since it's a short WOD, and I really want to push myself."
At Home: "Can you hand me my jar of Nutella? I can't reach it from the couch without coming out from under my blanket..."
At CrossFit: "I know I'm dripping blood from both hands, but I REALLY want to finish Murph as RX'd!"
At Home: "Can you do the dishes? I have a paper-cut, and I REALLY don't want to get germs in it."
At CrossFit: "I set a new back squat PR today even though I'm SUPER sore!"
At home: "Can you help me bring in the groceries, I'm SUPER sore."
At CrossFit: "Hi, new person, how are you? Welcome to CrossFit!"
In Public: "Stranger alert...Don't make eye contact...pretend to do something important on your phone."
At CrossFit: "I really need to go through the whole 30 again to get my nutrition back on track."
At Home: "I really need to buy some more Donettes while they're still on sale."
At CrossFit: "Let's talk about how awesome CrossFit is!"
At home/work/church/parties/facebook/instagram/etc: "Let's talk about how awesome CrossFit is!"
Ok...Some things are the same.
Anywho...I've decided to make the rest of my life a bit more CrossFitty. I've promised to be more active outside the box when I can, to make some better nutrition choices, and to engage with the world around me a bit more.
What good is all this fitness if we aren't enjoying it, right?
Have a wonderfully active day!

P.S. It's hard to eat Nutella while you're practicing your double-unders. Click below to get an extra rope for your home or office! You can even design one from your couch without disturbing your blanket :)
