Hey Friends. I’m so happy it’s Friday. That means time for Coffee Date! If we were having coffee I’d probably order a Chai Latte – they have been my new favorite. I would tell you as the seasons are changing I’ve been wanting less coffee, guess it’s been pretty warm in the mornings. Plus I don’t usually sit down to drink my coffee until after my workout and sometimes it just doesn’t sound good.
Speaking of workouts – I would tell you I’m SUPER excited for our STL Blogger meet up tomorrow! A bunch of the bloggers are coming out to CrossFit 70 to try an intro class. Yay for sweating with friends!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am feeling exceptionally blessed today. This week has been tough. The workouts were hard *cough* Murph & Fran *cough* and my relationship with food has been something I’ve been working through, but I’ve had such amazing support. I would tell you that since really putting myself out there about my confusion with food and telling you I was going to just try to be normal and balanced that I actually have been! I’ve been tracking on MyFitnessPal (my name on there is courtnorm – friend me!) and paying attention to what I eat and how it makes me feel. I’ve been paying attention to my Macros (Protein-Fat-Carb) and realizing that when my carbs are low so is my energy. I think this may be my issue with gaining strength. I’ve also talked to some people and I am getting a strength building plan put together – along with looking into a nutrition coach to help me balance my goals of losing weight and gaining strength. Yeehaw for progress! The most important thing right now is that I’m feeling really good… more at peace with myself.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that all though there are times she completely wears me out, I’m SO thankful for her. She’s growing up into such a beautiful little lady. She loves going to CrossFit with us and is a great little coach.
This morning I was reading Jenn’s blog and she talked about how her daughter saved her life and I can totally relate. I would tell you how my “A-Ha” moment came shortly after she was born when I saw a picture of me with the family around Easter time.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I can’t believe that is me. I realized looking at that picture that if I wanted to be the fun active mom who was around for her daughter that something had to change. I will, however, tell you that as much I as started the process for her… I ended up finding myself in the process. I would tell you that this journey is a never ending one. I’ll keep
growing Shrinking? and learning and developing as a person.
If we were having coffee I’d ask you what some of your biggest life learning moments have been. I love hearing other people tell stories. Especially ones that resonate to their core.
Your turn – If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
