The Internal Dialogue

of Cross Fit

As I laid my head, on my pillow, I could hear the voices of the people, that I work out with, in Cross Fit. They chanted, “You’ve got this, Miss Cheri.” “You can do it.” They were a choir of encouragement. It dawned on me how powerful that is.

As a whole ~

Cross Fit has been the most challenging and positive influence, in my entire life. 

Where will I go from here.

Maintain a Blog

The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life AND BLOG, is the source from which self-respect springs. A quote by Joan Didion and Secondhand Surfer

To maintain a blog was advice, on how to be a professional photographer, from one of those many “how to” cyber sites. I did get some good ideas from my reading. It’s just that, I know, I am not able, to follow the advice. My lifestyle leads itself to the impossible, on one hand, and endless possibilities on the other. My life is a lazy, busy, intricate web of photography, nature, and people. Every day brings about different colors, cultures, animals and moods. The one consistent is, there is no consistence.  Continue reading “Maintain a Blog”

Turtle Time

A slow and steady progress has always worked best for me. Desiring results in an instant was an earlier downfall in life. I had to learn to be happy in the day. The overall picture takes time.

I am nursing a sore area, in my lumbar. I will call it a soft tissue injury. I went to see my chiropractor yesterday afternoon. That was my third visit, since I felt the pull nine days ago. I will get a massage today.

Not that I would ever want an injury, however, they do happen.

Mentally, I’ve adjusted. Now it takes time.

Crossfit Injury

crossfitYes, I have a soft tissue injury. Was it worth it. Heck yeah. I’ve finished my total events, in the open. I haven’t posted my score yet. Why give someone a goal to beat. I’ll post tomorrow morning.

I’ve only been at this, for about four months now, and I am into it.

I pulled my back, a bit, on the 125 lb. dead lifts. I didn’t even know I was hurt, until four days later, when I attempted lifts again, at a much lighter weight. Continue reading “Crossfit Injury”

My Crossfit Crew

Surfside – Playa Potrero

These are the people that I have been working out around (not with) for about three months now. Today, is my last day here in CR. I have one more work out at 9 o’clock. I look forward to it. I feel the froth.

I have been doing the Games this year. My coach suggested it, and I said sure. Right now I’m #1 in the country. I looked at Florida’s leader board and I would be way down in the rankings.  But I’m not there, so I’m enjoying it.  Continue reading “My Crossfit Crew”
