HUGE victory :)

OH MY GOD I got double unders!!! Not like, I miraculously managed one… I get it now!!! I can string 3-5 together or 7-10 as double-single-double-single ūüôā After almost 4 years of trying to figure those bastards it finally clicked!! I spent an hour with the best double unders coach and it made a world of difference ūüėÄ woot!!! The biggest mental victory in a while. It was super frustrating to watch Amanda figure them out easily after I’ve been trying so long. Success!!!


one for ALL

take a chance

So, I spent the early part of this week at a managers conference in Toronto. ¬†Much to my dismay, this meant 2 days away from CFD. ¬†Bummer. ¬†Tuesday’s WOD sounded like a good one and I even considered attempting it in the hotel gym, but was pretty sure that overhead squats with a Smith Machine just weren’t the smartest idea. ¬†So 5km run filled the void. ¬†Anyways, my lack of lifting for 2 days is not where I intended to go with this. ¬†Wednesday I had a “thank you crossfit!!” moment when I was faced with a situation that was out of my comfort zone. ¬†A few minutes of courage in the face of fears were required, and the likely hood of taking such a risk even a year ago would have been pretty slim. ¬†I’ll keep my summary brief as not to bore the pants off ya. ¬†The president of the company I work for asked a question to the 32 managers in the room. ¬†A question as to why none of us had been supporting a practice. ¬†The room went silent. ¬†I stood up and quite plainly stated that it was a practice that essentially took money right out of our pockets. ¬†I was terrified, but it had to be said! ¬†The only way we were ever going to find common ground and move forward was to face these things head-on. ¬†Right away, Mr. Pres. went down the road I had feared “BUT at the end of the day, doesn’t what is best for the company as a whole matter the most?” ¬†Gulp. ¬†Oh shit. ¬†Don’t get me wrong, I’m the type of person who gives 110% at everything I do. ¬†The betterment of the company is high priority for me every day, but at the end of the day I still have bills to pay. ¬†Can’t argue that. ¬†The disappointing part was that by show of hands, only about 50% of my fellow managers will willing to show their support. ¬†Grow some balls people. ¬†Anyways,¬†the ripple effect set in and the open conversation that followed was exactly what I had been hoping for. ¬†In the end, there was a resolution that was of mutual benefit ūüôā ¬†Suddenly there was 100% support from the group when there was no longer a questionable outcome. ¬†And the following day I arrived to my store to find my inbox filled with “thank you!” emails from Mr. Pres, VP of sales, both DMs, and a few of my fellow managers. ¬†You know what? ¬†Thank you crossfit!! ¬†For teaching me to take chances and helping me find a confidence I kept buried behind self-doubt for so many year ūüėÄ
