Survival of the Fittest...Literally

So I lived to tell about it....and even have enough energy to blog about it! My first Crossfit session was everything I heard about it and just as scary as I thought it was going to be. Thankfully though, that fell away once the clock started and I focused on the task at hand. I'm still kinda in awe of myself that I was able to pull it off and with a good 16 minutes to spare. In case you're wondering....yes, I am dusting my shoulders off right now :} I do have to show some additional love for Hov, the gym was blasting it and my boi JayZ definitely helped me to bring it home. Illuminati or not, I'm throwing up the Roc! lol

The workout itself wasn't complicated, just not one the average person would choose on their own. And the majority believe you can't get a good workout in less than an hour. Tomorrow morning when I can't get out of bed, I will be a living testament to that myth! It was the quickest, longest 13.39 minutes of my life....I'm sure that will make sense to any Crossfitters reading this.

As a whole, it was a great class. The music definitely helped, so as long as they keep it crunk, I will be a happy camper....I think. On the way home the adrenaline had me feeling like a superhero and that was cool. It's been a long time since a workout made me feel that way and that is exciting. Can I see it being as addictive as they say? Maybe...it is only my first session and I have yet to meet Fran. Apparantly she is a bitch and I will not enjoy her :{   So I guess we'll see  :} 

P.S.  To my dance class tomorrow morning....we will NOT be doing an arm drill tomorrow. Now everybody tell Crossfit thank you :}

Crossfit or Die

Sooooooo....in a few hours I will be participating in my first Crossfit session. I have to say, from the internet trolling I've done, I am more than mildly nervous...lol. My intentions were to start yesterday, but my favorite Zumba teacher subbed a class and I opted out for that instead, since I was going to miss it today. If only everything were as fun as Zumba :} Or bellydance :} The last 6 weeks of bootcamp has really shown me how much bellydance has babied my body over the last few years. All that jumping and running on concrete has not made my joints happy :{  But flipping the big monster truck tire did make me feel like a superhero!

All of this in preparation, as Thursday marks the 1 month countdown to the Marine Mud Challenge.  I'm hoping the next 3 weeks of Crossfit will crank my fitness up another notch and hopefully drop this last 8.2 lbs off! Or at least replace the leftover baby fat with some much needed muscle. Running has made my legs skinny :{ 

They say there is strength in numbers, but unfortunately I couldn't seem to recruit any friends to torture myself with, so I'm going in solo and will hopefully find some new friends :} To those of you unrecruited "friends" who are reading this...you suck and you're all a bunch of pansies, but I still love you :}

So, wish me luck. I am desperately grasping to the far away memories of when I used to live for throw up leg days. That seems like a longgggggg time ago....wait, it was a long time ago. Dang, if I could go back, I would definitely appreciate my 25 year old body wayyyyyyy more! So here goes nothing. I will post later about my first session....if I can still lift my arms to type :}
