A word or two. Workout. Have fun if you want. Post pics of yourself doing kipping pull-ups or strict L-Sit Pull-ups. Just don’t expect everyone to be with you 100% of the time. Not every person that you know is going to support you in every endeavor. That would be too weird anyway and there would never be a struggle. The struggle is everything. The pain, and hardship are part of any great struggle. Embrace them. Being told no hurts, but only if you take no for an answer. Learn to deal with doubters internally. Dealing with it may not be best served trying to convince someone who has already made up their mind. Waste of energy. Accept it. Or don’t. You may find that you don’t need approval. You may find self-assuredness, self-confidence, and self-reliance intoxicating. They are really quite breath-taking actually. I suggest trying them all. I know. Your CrossFit workouts are helping you with all that stuff. Just when you are starting to gain some real momentum, someone comes along and tries to drag you down. It is OK. It will only happen if you let it. Keep on Keeping on. Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-ah your stride. Nobody’s gonna slow you down. Oh no, you’ve got to keep on movin’. Try not asking pretty please for permission to have someone’s approval. Try to care enough not to care what someone thinks about what makes you happy. One last thing. Our workout choice is just a workout choice. Take your health and fitness serious, but don’t turn it into a crusade.
