Class at 5:45, 7, 9:30, and 11 ONLY today. Closed tomorrow.
As the year draws to a close take some time to look back and think about the positive things you’ve done this year. Maybe you got a new job, got married, started CrossFit, improved your diet, finally took that trip – whatever the things you’ve done this year TODAY is the perfect time to remember those accomplishments. All too often we get caught up in the day-to-day grind and we miss out on appreciating how far we’ve come. We get so caught up in front squatting “only” so much weight, being able to do “only” a couple rx’d pull ups, or “only” losing so much weight that we forget that these accomplishments are EXTRAORDINARY in this day and age.
While most people are lost in a sea of infomercials promising worthless quick fixes you’ve actually gotten off your ass and made change this year. Tomorrow I’ll worry about what I want to do in the next year but today, on the last day of the year, I like to look back and appreciate my accomplishments both inside and outside of the gym. I pick a couple from each segment of gym, home, professional, etc. that I’m most proud of and reflect on them. Tomorrow I’ll look at things I want to improve next year and make goals to do so.
