Crazy Week

December 20, 2011

Make way for the crazy week ahead. Thankfully I dont buy a whole ton of Christmas gifts. I dont decorate my house (we arent home 99% of the time anyway) and I dont really buy into the whole commercialism of the holiday. Unfortunately, its hard to escape it completely.

I dont "hate" Christmas, and I will explain that in another post eventually I am sure, but I have to address the crazyness that comes along with it all. Parties, traffic... the grocery store... lists... all that stuff. I have to really keep a straight head and forge ahead with life... "normal" life.

This year in addition to the crazyness that normally surrounds the holidays, I am dealing with some additional stresses. Lots of extra driving, and lots of extra emotions. Christmas is hard enough as it is without all that. It is certainly no ones fault, and I know for sure that I am not obligated to do all the things I choose to do... but I will tell you, nothing feels better than making someone smile. Nothing feels better than showing up someplace, walking in the door and seeing the smile spread across a persons face just because they know how much you mean to them and vice versa. That... is Christmas to me. Its not about bringing that person a gift. Its about being with them when they need you most.

Todays WOD was a good one. I am really working on my box jumps. K and I have talked about them before so I am working on starting on top of the box and eliminating the "rock" to my heels at the floor by practicing the "touch and go..." woldnt you know... its WORKING!! I killed them and really picked up a lot of time through that part of the WOD. The cleans were great at 95lbs, no problem with that, but my shoulder and elbow have been bothering me since yesterday. I think its the rope climbs... and the burpees... well, they are still burpees!  I really felt great through the whole WOD!

Love that feeling!
