WED 11.20.13 – Gratitude

By | Uncategorized, WOD | One Comment

Gratitude

by Coach Amy
This time of year it’s easy to remember to be thankful. That’s what Thanksgiving is all about right? One night where we sit around and stuff ourselves silly and maybe mention what we’re thankful for before we dig in.
But what about daily gratitude?
Do you remember to feel grateful for the mundane things, like grocery shopping?
Because thank goodness you have access to an organized store that has fresh, healthy food, and a lot of it.
And the money to pay for all that good food.
And the working car (or legs!) that got you there on a safe street.
And a warm, cozy home where you can store your food and keep it fresh for days.
And the physical ability to walk to your car, the mental capacity to get you to and through the store, the strength to pick up all of those grocery bags (thanks CFM!).
The list can go on and on.
So before you start to complain about the traffic, or the idiot that cut you off, or the lady standing in front of you paying with a check...take a deep breath and smile.
Because you’re alive.
And while even that is beyond our control, we can be thankful for every day we have here.
Starting now.
A good way to start your daily gratitude?
Start a list. Add three things every day that you're grateful for. They can be little things that made you smile throughout the day, they can be big things that you don’t want to take for granted.
Heck, you don’t even need to write them down. Think of something before you get out of bed in the morning. Be grateful for the simple fact that your eyes opened again. And remember to give your loved ones a hug/call/high five when you think of them. Tell that person you’re sorry. Release the grudge from ten years ago.
Don’t assume there’s a later, or tomorrow, or next week.
Live now. And be grateful for today.

TUES 11.19.13 – Moving sideways?

By | Goals, WOD | No Comments

Get out of your rut!

I wasn't thrilled with my performance at the state powerlifting meet.
Yes, I won my weight class & set a new state record with my final squat.
But I was also frustrated with my performance because my numbers were flat or down- I squatted 292# (at 148# body weight) which was a PR for me at that weight class BUT six months ago I squatted 286# at a body weight of 142#... More than 2x my body weight.
I bench pressed 142#... Been stuck at that same weight for three meets now.
And I deadlifted 302#... 40# shy of my PR for that weight class.
No, it wasn't my best meet. But this is the last time I'll bitch about it.
Life is about making progress, constantly challenging yourself and striving for improvement.
When you're moving sideways, recognize it, and find a way out of your rut.
When I missed my final deadlift attempt, I sat alone for about 30 minutes to reflect.
I was frustrated. Stagnant. In a rut.
How do I move on from this?
So I took last week off from training and met with my coach to dissect the meet & make a new plan of attack for the next meet. I'm adding another day of lifting and two days of yoga to my training. And I'm mixing up my training schedule for a change of scenery & to work with a new training partner.
Are you in a rut?
Don't bitch about it. ACT. GO. DO.
Stop moving sideways and make forward progress.
Set new goals, start tracking your numbers to gauge your progress (if you don't already... YOU SHOULD!), change up your training schedule, or just take some time off.
Or maybe you need to talk with your coach to reassess your game plan. Let us know how we can help.
