So I haven't worked out in a gym in 3.5 years. Deluded myself into thinking I was in ok shape because I'm slim and I bike and walk around. Haha. Today was my first day of crossfit. This was a one-on-one orientation session with a trainer who walks you through a WOD. I do two more of these before I'm allowed to actually start the group classes.
Anyway, I am just so out of shape it's embarrassing, and I am also extremely afraid of the pain I am about to experience in the coming weeks/months. I forgot how hard working out is! Also, crossfit reminds me of gym class.... and i HATED gym. Dreaded it. It was the only class where I couldn't get an A, where I felt weak and uncoordinated and pathetic.
I'm going to do it anyway, because I have to, I have to rebuild this body that I have damaged with eating disorders and inactivity. I also have a short term goal of August when I'm a maid of honour and want to look strong and fit and healthy (as my relatives all know I've been otherwise). I guess I'm just wanting to hear from those of you who started it really out of shape, like me, that crossfit is better/more effective than going to a cardio-pump class, and that it took X amount of weeks/months before you didn't feel like a total loser.
