Sometimes it takes just the right motivation to push you in a certain direction. You might know that you need to head down a certain path but never choose to. Maybe you’re too scared or you think it’s too hard? I know I fall into that trap often. At times I can look to find an easy way out even though I know that the more difficult path is probably going to be better for me overall. That’s why it’s import to find your focus. Finding Focus on a goal or choice you have is one of the best ways to overcome them. We all need a reason for lacing up our shoes for a run, click in the pedals for a ride or to throw on those gym shorts to get in a workout. Having a reason or a purpose is essential.
I’ve definitely found my focus. I’ve started and stopped this post for about 4 months now. I can never seem to find the time to get back to it and this little guys is why. He consumes whatever extra time I have and I couldn’t be any happier about it. I could never imagine what it felt like to be a parent until it happened. I’ve listened to everyone’s stories about it but you seriously can’t fathom what its like until you see a mini version of you laughing, giggling and just enjoying life. It’s amazing. I’ve got a new focus on growing in life with no excuses left that make any sense to me any more. Our boy needs his parents around more in today’s times than any other and I plan on being here for as long as possible. That’s going to require lots of ass kicking workouts and a new eating plan so we can place a strong foundation of fitness & health in our sons life. How can we expect him to grow up healthy & strong if we aren’t willing to put in the work ourselves?
So my new plan of action is CrossFit. I signed up for it last week and I’m about halfway through my foundation work. I’ll most likely post more about the CrossFit culture, workouts and the crazy ass kicking I’ll be receiving but for now I’m sinking myself into the training and movements of CrossFit and trying to expand and learn as much as I can about myself and my limitations. My goal is to schedule CrossFit workouts at least three times a week and filling in any extra time I have on my bike. Even if that means throwing the bike in the trainer then so be it. It’s technically the off season of cycling anyway, though that’s not truly valid here in SoCal. So with all that said…I’m back!!!!
