PR Day

Friday Dec 1 2017

Today is the last installment of the 21 Day Challenge championship Essays and tomorrow night we will announce the winner(s) of the Challenge. The December 21 Day Challenge will officially begin Saturday instead of today. Sign up on that board and maybe it could be your essay that inspires someone else to join this competition and have their lives changed just as it has changed yours oh and win some cash too!
I still remember when Becky walked into CFGB 5 years ago, matter of fact I even remember the dress she was wearing but most importantly I remember her telling me that she wanted to be an athlete again. It's been a long journey with many ups and downs, successes and failures but the one thing that has remained the same, she never gave up. I am very proud of you Becky and with that first place finish with Buntin this last October at the Gauntlet 943 I do believe that the athlete goal has been attained. Happy reading everyone!
“Success is not the absence of failure; it’s the persistence through failure” ~Aisha Tyler
I am 5 years and 3 months into my crossfit journey at Crossfit Green Bay.  People who regularly attend the fiveonefive have seen me struggle to get rid of fat and stay consistent.  At times, I would do very well for a few months only to undo all of the hard work by going back to things that cause immediate gratification like beer and pizza. A LOT of beer and pizza. It was throwing on so much inflammation that I didn’t even have the energy to go to the gym.  When presented with the challenge, I figured that I needed something to keep me on track. 
                Well, this was Challenge number 7 in a row for me.  I have had my share of failures.  It took me 6 challenges to finally take 1st place.  In the beginning, I found that I would do very well during a 21 day challenge only to undo all of that hard work in the 2 weeks between the challenges. I spent a great deal of time working on my “why” and vision as to where I see myself in 3 months, 6 months, or in a year.  I found that doing well in a challenge only to spend a few weekends binging was not going to get me to those goals. I am setting small short term goals that are helping me get to those long term goals as well. I actually signed up for my first crossfit competition which helped keep me on track with eating.  Erin and I actually took 1st place! And my latest………. I WILL GET THAT STUPID BAR MUSCLE UP BY DECEMBER 31ST, 2017 IF IT KILLS ME! I have never imagined myself actually being able to do one!  I am so close!
                In addition to vision, friends and friendly competition are key.  Michelle, Holly and I got together to make 72 meals.  We had a blast and we set ourselves up for success.  There are many Facebook messages between us throughout the week talking about our struggles.  It might be the stress we are experiencing that is affecting our will to get to the gym (HOLLY!), but having those people there gets you through those short term struggles.  They expect you to be at the gym on Saturday am.  Have you done a nasty WOD with a horrible hangover?  Try it once.  It will make you question drinking on a Friday night.  Tell everyone you will be there, fill up on steak, sweet potatoes, broccoli, get up early…and kill it.  You will never regret eating right and going to crossfit, but you will regret how eating crap makes you feel like crap.  It may have taken me 7 challenges to get here, but I see myself continuing in a positive direction keeping my vision and my “why” right in front of me.
                Happy Holidays!
