I had my first "work out" at CrossFit Soulshine yesterday. I'm choosing to call it a play out instead of a work out. Yes, I can, just because I said so! One of the many privileges of adulthood (free to be corny). So... I'm walking and sitting on the pot without major, ridiculous sore muscle pain. Thank you to Dave and to myself for not getting stupid. I walked in as a newbie knowing nothing with everything to learn. That's what I found... lots to learn. I LOVE learning! There were lots of snatches, clean, jerk and burpees on the menu for the day. Of course there is proper form involved which is great to learn through repetition. My new mindset of not being in a hurry all the time is serving me well.
I did my exercises without weight on my bar... the form is a little tricky. Bottom line? I'm thrilled. I feel great emotionally and mentally for finally following through with my commitment. There's that odd silence similar to when the switch flipped regarding smoking and drinking. COOL! Three hours per week for physical fitness and mental silence is a NO BRAINER... I'm not even going to try to figure out what took me so long... who cares! I'm going back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday indefinitely. There's fun stuff to learn and practice, a body to transform a mind to keep quiet and perhaps a competition in my future! It has peaked my curiosity as well... what will my body reveal? what will I feel like? what will I look like? There's mystery and magic in the conversation that is opened up by my patient consistency.
Summary: I am happy to report that I've flipped the switch (knock knock) and I'm in it for the long haul... OH and I'm having fun playing with the magic and curiosity of it all. Yeah Baby!

I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
