Oh it’s been a long time since I’ve posted – there are a lot of new and exciting things going on in my real life! My training partner Jillian and I are working on opening a new Crossfit box in the area (soon, more info soon!) and business meetings are occupying every extra minute of every day….but that’s not why you’re here so let’s get to it!
I was at a trade show last week for work and sat at my table eating almonds waiting for the show to start and the gentleman next to me asked if I wanted some of his veggie chips – I replied with a polite no thank you and he said, “oh, you probably workout a lot too”. and I casually replied, “Yes”.
Well, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I don’t think I work out A LOT. That’s like saying to someone with a nice smile, “Oh, you must brush your teeth EVERY day!”. I shower everyday (usually) and brush my teeth everyday and do a lot of things everyday – to which working out is also on that list. We take care of our bodies on the outside – but we also need to be taking care of them on the inside. Nutrition and exercise are just as important as brushing your teeth.
We have only one body bestowed upon us in this life. No matter your religious or secular opinions, we should be good caretakers and be active in the longevity and maintenance of that body.
Crossfit is my toothbrush.
