By now you're probably dying to know why I'm so incredibly sore. It's all because of Cross Fit, and nothing to do with the fact that I'm a wimp and out of shape. OK, so I don't really think I'm wimpy, I actually think I'm quite strong.
Just get used to the fact that I'm not normal.
I'm not normal, because crazy things like Cross Fit make me totally excited.
I always liked to be strong. My family LOVES to tell people about how I used to show everyone what I thought were impressive biceps. I can remember telling an old man in the supermarket, "Want to see my muscle?" I had no shame. I remember doing pushups and situps every night before I went to bed in elementary school. By middle school I had dumbbells in my room. By high school I was obsessed.
The obsession all started with P90X. I saw a infomercial a few years ago, and I HAD to have it. I got the DVD's for Christmas.
|That's my excited face.|
Those first couple of weeks were painful. No one knew what P90X was yet, so they didn't understand what I was complaining about. Yeah, I was way ahead of the game. A year later P90X became really popular and I bragged that I had already finished it.
The truth is, I didn't do the full 90 days. I did 60. Then I started to get too muscular. I think I gain muscle easier than other girls. Plus, I needed more cardio.
|Ignore my face.|
After P90X, I started to train for a triathlon. I got way in shape and was one week away from the race, but then I hurt my knee. No triathlon. I didn't do one last year either. But I WILL do one this year, August 6th. I'm telling you this so that it actually happens.
Last year I was watching P90X before and after transformations on youtube to get me excited about it again. Hey, it works. That's when I started to see some testimonials about Insanity.
I had to have it. Guess what I got for my birthday?
Insanity was...insane. I did it the full 60 days and I saw awesome results. I don't do Insanity everyday anymore, but I still do it once or twice a week because it's one of the best cardio/strength workouts I can do on my own.
Most girls want to be thin. I want to be strong. Well, strong and thin. I like having muscles. I already told you, I'm weird.
Oh, and I don't show strangers my muscles anymore. Just my friends and family. Wait...
