Weekly Workouts + What I Ate in a Day

Weekly Workouts + What I Ate in a Day

Happy Labor Day!! I’ve been soaking up this Monday holiday with a chill morning, workout then brunch. Which is why this post is going up so late compared to most days. It was exactly what I needed for a little change to the normal work week.

So I feel like I need to get a little real for a second. Be a bit more honest than usual. Social media is dragging.me.down. Which is challenging since it’s part of my job. Not only is social media frustrating from a business standpoint, but it’s very frustrating from an emotional standpoint. When I first got into CrossFit and paleo, I fell in love with it because it was a world that revolved around hard work and performance. It didn’t obsess over physique. And it felt like the world was going in that direction. But now whenever I look at social media, I’m bombarded with images of butts and abs and beautiful people. And no matter how confident I am in my own skin, I can’t help but question my own self worth when I see images of others. And that’s incredibly disheartening after all the hard work I’ve put into my own life and growth to get away from those feelings.

For me, realizing that social media affects my mood and thoughts about myself is the first step to solving that issue and moving on from it. I’m mentioning this because if I’m going through it, I know others feel the same way when they spend any sort of time on social media. If you’re feeling this way or questioning your own growth, accomplishments and happiness…just stop. Step away from unneeded negative energy and take the time to remember…
