Last week we discussed how I will be changing jobs early in May. While this oppertunity was a no-brainer for me, there was one lingering question I had to figure out. Where will I crossfit?
My current box, Crossfit 508, is 20 miles from where I live. I started here because it was right on my way home from work as well as the amazing prices they had compared to other boxes around.
But with my new position being in Cambridge now, I will be no where near 508, and although a part of me wants to stay with them forever, I know I would not be motivated to drive 20 miles each way to the box.
So with advice from DMA, the owner of 508, I shopped around and visited some new boxes. There is a fairly new box that opened the next town over from me, Crossfit Florian. The people seem to be a great, fun-loving group like I’m used to; the equipment is new & organized & plentiful; the space is large. All in all I was impressed with this box. Since it is only 5 minutes away, it’ll be nice to be home early than my normal 7:15 pm time as well.
I plan to stay with my current 3X/week schedule. I’ve been debating about going unlimited – but I think I want to adjust to my new working schedule before I do such a thing.
So May will be a big month of changes for me; all for the better I hope.
On another note. Yesterday was the ending to the Relative Reduction my family was doing. I would love to say I won, but I can’t! My Aunt was KILLER at this. Loosing almost 14lbs and 7% of her body fat over these 3+ months! How amazing is that! I came in behind her with losing over 5.5% body fat – although I had only lost about 4 lbs. No biggie. I was very excited about the loss of body fat. I see definition in my shoulders and arms & my legs don’t look so cottage-cheese-esque anymore. As much as the $$ would have been nice to win; the focus of this challenge was to better ourselves as a family – and that was accomplished. We are now looking at Phase II of the challenge, as we all will be vacationing in Newport, RI together at the end of June. #bikiniforthefirsttimeinyears
