The healthiest I've ever been - in the best shape, had the most energy, felt the most strong and positive about my body, had zero hay fever, zero menstrual cramps, zero headaches or jaw aches - came after I'd started doing CrossFit workouts.
The crazy hormones stopped all intense workouts immediately. It has been 3 years since I felt really good in my body.
Today, the kids and I started working with a trainer at CrossFit 206 who is certified in adult CrossFit training and CrossFit Kids. I almost fell out of my chair with excitement when I discovered her. Having the 3 of us playing workout together covers all sorts of bases: I get my workout, the kids get some serious PE, Theo is working towards his goal of improved soccer skills, there is no need for childcare and we get to have a great time together.
We did bear crawls, hopping, duck walks, push ups, squats, rolls, and other fun and intense things. It is the first time I've sweated from using my body in 3 years, and I didn't have to go straight home to a puking migraine.
Exciting stuff. I'm thrilled to see what sort of results we've gotten at the end of the summer.
