Are you ready ?

It’s a funny thing being faced with something you cannot control.  I hurt my back in December 2013 while picking up my sleeping 5 year old.  She’s heavy as lead, but still only 5 years old.  I kept thinking to myself, I should be able to do this.  Why did this happen?  Was I in a weird twisting position or something?  The reasons (more like excuses) kept coming until I finally realized I was just really out of shape.  Okay, so if I’m already out of shape and barely into my 40’s, will I always be like this?  Clearly I want to be able to do fairly easy things like this, but my body wouldn’t let me.

Backtrack 10-12 years prior.  Let me set the stage:  I’m speaking with my best friend telling her my frustrations for not being able to lose weight.  The weight just kept coming. I kept getting bigger and bigger.  Yes, I had a couple of kids, but DEAR LORD when will it end?  I specifically remembered telling her, “So, I can graduate from college, move back home, buy a house, and get married all in the same year; BUT I’M STILL A SIZE 22 AND CAN’T SEEM TO LOSE 1 POUND!  Why can’t I do this?”  I can still feel the frustration (and anger).

Looking back to these situations and so many more like them, are what lead me on my journey to figuring out what I wanted my future to look like.  Did I want to continue to be out of shape, be injured while doing regular things, or change?  It was not long after this event that I realized, there’s no way on God’s green earth that I’m going to live my life without being able to do things like picking up my own children or their children.  It was at that moment I became ready.  I was ready to find out FOR MYSELF what I was truly capable of. 


What can 40 some year old Carrie do?  Can I jump on, run around, and lift heavy shit?  Can I return back to being somewhat fit and carry things like my now 7 year old heavy as lead free-spirited daughter?  I knew I would have to work hard at it, be consistent, and take care of myself.  I knew I was not in great shape when I walked thru the doors at CrossFit Bezel, but I also knew that wouldn’t be for very long if I put some effort into it.  I’m not saying I’m near any sort of finish line, but I’ll be damned if I’m stopping now.
