This week has ben tough... not on the training side but it definitely took affect on my training.
I have just been dealing with a lot of stress. Well lets correct what I just wrote there:
I already deal with a considerable amount of stress and anxiety as a business owner and CrossFit Affiliate Owner. This week has just so happen to pile on a little more than I can handle.
Every once in a while I get a little overwhelmed with the gym, my personal life and anything else that could possibly get placed on top of that. The article posted about me on crossfit.com was cool to read. The title was way over the top, but it touched on some pretty specific things going on with my life.
At first I was pretty pissed off by all the armchair quarterbacks who talked shit on the .com facebook page but then they only proved how much they know.. NOTHING. It was pretty cool to see some of the people I care about chime in on the thread and melt some faces. Maybe my stress came from the accountability that article has created. Now the entire community is expecting me to succeed.
Coincidentally... my new nickname amongst my training partners is "Little Bitch."
I will figure out a way to manage the pressure I am feeling. Once I do, I will be able to get back in the swing of things. Some of my results this week were not what I was looking for but it was the best I could do given the energy lul I was feeling through the week.
My food was good this week. On Friday I grabbed some Brisket from Whole Foods with nothing on it as a quick meal before training, but one of my friends revealed to me that they use brown sugar in the dry rub. FUCK. It didnt take me over my limit for either my day or my meal so im okay.
Keep pushing forward to next week. I really want to be in the low 290's by the end of February.
