Oh, right! That would be because today is the first day in a week that I woke up and I wasn't sore. It is strange, when you wake up and immediately feel amazing, but can't put your finger on it. Then, as I was doing my usual yawn/stretch thing before I motivated to get out from under the covers, it hit me. I was no longer sore! My hamstrings felt normal. My abs felt fine. My shoulders felt relaxed, you get the point.
Last week was a hard week for me. It felt like all of our gym workouts were on steroids, and couple that with trying to be a perfect vision of Paleo eating, it led to one tired chica! Instead of each day passing mindlessly, I felt like I was stuck in each moment. Time stood still as I waited to eat my next protein rich, carb-less meal. Once meal time passed I was waiting to go to CrossFit. The moments in between my meals and working out I tried to fill with work and sleep and other things that usually distract me, but for some reason, all I could focus on this week was my current nutrition challenge, and how I need to WIN.
This is how it works for me. When I'm in the "zone" all my thoughts are consumed by what I need to do next to stay on track. I need to be obsessed for a few weeks until it becomes second nature, and I can start to think about other things, like work, etc. Right now, this is the most important thing I have going on in my life. Taking care of myself, and becoming the me that I want to be.
I had an incredibly successful week regarding my eating. I feel like my performance at CrossFit is not quite up to where it should be, but I'll keep working on that. I've been trying to run a mile after each workout with "The Mile Cool Down Club" and I think I need to spend just a few minutes each day working on skills that I haven't mastered yet (pull ups!).
Why does time have to go so slow when you want things, and go so fast when you don't?
