18 month check in from Mary Ellen:

I remember on my first drive to Crossfit Craic I had to fight back a panic attack. 
I remember when I would have to read the daily workout and look up movements on youtube before I felt comfortable to walk into class. 
I remember when I wouldn’t dream of picking up the 45 lb bar for a workout.
I remember when I didn’t like to wear shorts. Or sleeveless tops. Or a bathing suit.
I remember when I didn’t cook anything from scratch.
I remember when I would routinely feel anxious travelling on business trips around the country, especially on my own.
Now I walk into Craic without hesitation and without needing to mentally prep for the workout. I know there’s no WOD I can’t get through somehow.
Now I wear whatever I want and don’t think much about it.
Now I cook only from scratch.
Now I notice I walk the earth with more confidence, wherever I travel to.
Thankyou CRAIC!

Words from Sara:

Body Language
Every typically-developed human is fluent in body language. And just like the subtleties of grammar and syntax, there are aspects of non-verbal communication that we may not recognize explicitly but we can practically understand.
Ever walk into a room and felt tension? Ever asked somebody what’s wrong, for no other reason than something about them “seemed off”? You may not always be able to put your finger on it, but even the smallest trace of tightness in the mouth or odd hitch of the shoulders can speak volumes about a person’s state of mind. If you pay a reasonable amount of attention, then you’ll figure out what a person’s body language is saying, even if only subconsciously.
The thing is: your subconscious notices your own body language, too. If you shake your head during a workout, if you roll your eyes, if you put your hands on your knees, if you look down, if you curl up into a fetal position…what do you think you’re telling yourself in that moment? Nevermind what you’re telling other people with that kind of body language (they’ll notice anyway)…what are you telling yourself?
Alternatively, what are you telling yourself when you pull your shoulders back, clap your hands, look up forty-five degrees from the horizon, puff up your chest, strut around the gym floor, and smile? Do you think this type of communication may get you more pumped up, more focused, and better prepared for your next lift or move?
Be aware of what type of non-verbal messages you express to yourself during your workouts this week.
