Today marked a huge shift in training and focus for me as we approach the the start of the 2013 CrossFit Games season. Up until know I've been working hard, sure, but the focus hovered anywhere between 80-99%. Starting today, it moves to 95-100% at all times. If you'd like to see and/or follow along my program, check out THIS SITE. I'll be posting my results daily along with a few other guys following along my programming. Also, if anyone out there is interested in following along, please, please let me know.
Aside from that, I am dialing in the nutrition with the goal to drop back down to my "fightin' weight" of 215-220. My focus for the past 8 months or so was to get strong. So, while I didn't want to balloon up to 300, I was a little less worried about gaining a few pounds.
The main thing that I've taken some time to really focus on is my mentality towards this lifestyle. Every now and again I like to take a solid hour or so and really think in depth about everything I'm doing. I highly recommend everyone give this a try a few times a year as it's pretty crazy how much you are doing without even knowing it. I was "lucky" enough to be stuck in a car driving down the Jersey turnpike around 1am all alone. This (along with a few, um, doughnuts) led me to a pretty lengthy introspection. The time spent thinking led me to a wonderfully refreshed perspective on all I wanted in life; and, a rather bloated feeling stomach.
So, I am committed. I'm committed to doing everything that I know how to get as far as I can in CrossFit this season (goal is top 10 at Regionals). I am committed to taking batting practice and drill-work at least 3 times every week (yep, baseball!), I am committed to making a few major changes in how I conduct business so that I can better serve the people who trust in me and better grow my two gyms. I am committed to bettering myself in my relationships, opening up new and improved ways to communicate so that they can grow for the better. Obviously there are tons of little details in how I'll be going about doing all these things, all the ins and outs of my progress. And that my dear readers is what you will get to read about as I continue to post. Yes, most of the details are in my head. No, I will not write them all out today. I'm learning more and more how my brain works and how to gain more and more control over all the craziness that's up in there. All I know is that the better you understand yourself, the easier it is to do literally EVERYTHING you want. Each and every day I am moving in the direction I want and that aligns me with so much more good. And with that good comes success (however you wish to define that). I know in my heart that I am exactly where I need to be, and moving at a great speed in the direction I should be moving in. I can't wait for tomorrows yoga and workout. I can't wait to feel how sore Ill be from Mondays training. I can't wait to cook a ton of incredible food. I can't wait to train my clients. And I can't wait look at the mountains while riding my bike around the outskirts of San Mateo.
