So it's a bit posey. But we had a few photographers down at our box to take pictures of "muscley people" and they snapped this. Originally it was me just chilling and then they poised it into a more camera friendly shot.
I have been thinking lately how I have changed over the past years. I look at my coaching and work and it is easy to see the developments made through clients and through their programming.
When looking at your improvements within yourself it's so much harder.
The one thing that I definitely do feel has changed though is my body perception. I still go through stages of feeling bigger/heavier but in all i am so proud of my body and what it can do. CrossFit is what has got me there. Whilst some criticise it as a sport, it has helped me in huge amounts.
It hasn't always been sunshine and rainbows. There used to be binges, there used to be starvation and there was meticulously counting nuts/seeds/vegetables from packets to make sure to not consume too many calories. Not to mention waiting outside gyms to open, being the last to leave at night (on the same days) and walking/running around parks with a wet suit on.
Maybe I'm being too honest. But it has taken me a good 10 years to be where I am today. Happy.
I will always be chasing better numbers on my bar, chasing people on a run, or working to beat the person next to me on those burpees. But I won't ever again chase a body that isn't real.
