Missing in Action

Days left to CrossFit Games: 6

losingmyway Sorry I have not been keeping up to date with the blog recently. I have spent most days in the garden, working, running errands, and getting ready for the Games in California next week.

I have been thinking a lot about how this year is going so far. It seems to be going great. I set out to accomplish a great deal and I am well on my way. But much of the focus for the first six month has been on losing weight and getting fit which transitioned into a focus almost exclusively on performing well at CrossFit for these competitions. On one hand it is a great thing to decide what you want in life and then dedicate time and effort to achieve what you set out to achieve. But in the grander scheme of life all of my fitness efforts will only be a true success if they are part of the bigger set of accomplishments as opposed to being the thing that distracts me from the rest. I have been so concentrated on the competitions that I am having trouble visualizing the overall set of resolutions and the direction I want them to take me in.

After thinking about it this week I have decided it is okay for now. I still 6 months of this year to get this stuff figured out. Next weekend will be a major milestone and once it is finished I can step back and take a look at the bigger picture and make sure I am not losing my way.
