I promise, I’m still alive!!

If there is anyone still out there, I’m just dropping a quick line to let you know that I’m still alive. It has been a hard road back from burnout. For awhile, I really thought I had it licked and was almost back to normal….so of course, I returned to my overworking, junk-food eating, non-mindful self.

The consequences of this are pretty messy. Lots of tiredness, food cravings, a lack of motivation and zero energy to give to extracurriculars, let alone Crossfit. Not only did I not do the Open, but I forgot it was happening. A post on Facebook today reminded me that the Regionals are on.

I swear, the days where I lived and breathed Crossfit seem so far away. And I really don’t know when or if I’ll make it back. There are probably still some lifestyle changes to be done between now and my triumphant return to the barbell. However, fortunately I did realize I was backsliding – and thanks to a weekend visit from the Rack Pack to top up my much depleted “girl power” pocket – I’ve smartened the f*ck up and rebooted my recovery routine. I’ll write more about this in another post,but it’s a work holiday here and I need to go hold down my couch in case it gets any ideas.
