switching gyms - crossfit?
my contract is almost up at my gym. giving much consideration to joining the crossfit gym here, but it’s 4x the cost of the gym i currently go to and, if i’m being honest, i’m scared. there is a free saturday workout as well as the on-ramp program, but i feel rather intimidated - which admittedly is not a good reason to avoid something, and if anything is even more reason to do it.
i would love it if you would send me a message about your first few times going and any words of encouragement or advice!

Recovery is not something you can get cocky about. You may have been fine for years, but unhealthy thoughts & behaviors are insidious - they will creep in the back door when you aren’t looking. Do not let this discourage you. Use it as motivation to keep making your health a priority every single day. This is worth fighting for.

WORD. I was thinking about how a few years ago, I would have had to measure out XXX calories worth, make some sort of personal promise to myself that I would make up for it in some way, and then still deal with feelings of guilt and self-hatred afterwards.
Now i can just eat as much or as little as I want just because I want to, because it tastes good, because it is from a meal shared in love with my family. And to top it all off, absolutely NONE of my fears came true when i stopped caring about how many calories I ate each day - the world didn’t end, I didn’t get fat, everyone still loves me as much as they did before.
I’m feeling a little bit emotional about this, you guys, but srsly - this is truly one of the most liberating feelings in the world for me.

Feeling grateful that my dad has this setup in the basement so I can get my lift on while visiting for the holiday.

a funny story…
I remember this night so vividly. It hurt like hell and ate at me for days. In a completely ironic twist of fate, I happen to now be dating the guy who my now-ex’s ex-girlfriend was out with that night. It took me months to put this together. Maybe I would have noticed him if I hadn’t been busy being upset about her existence for that entire night.
Undeniable proof that you shouldn’t focus on the negative because you might miss out on noticing something great … :)

when i get back to squatting my previous max (1.2x bodyweight), i am totally going to buy myself something off of the Lift Big, Eat Big site. probably nothing about having a big booty though, i am sorely afflicted with ABD*. this reminds me that i should take some butt pics so i can track my progress there.
*asian booty disease, y’all. it’s a problem.
