I'm asked often by readers, "How do you find the motivation?" or "How did you get into it and stay into it?"
When I was strictly running, it was damn hard to find the motivation to run sometimes. Sure, I had tons of little tricks that helped me out, but I think it was my willpower. Over time, I've developed rituals. Things that become habitual and methodical require less thought and therefore, less strain on our willpower reservoir. CrossFit is so much more fun that running, I look forward to it like a fat kid looks forward to cake. It isn't a chore, it's my power hour, it's where I go to refill my fun tank.
There are so many things that drain our willpower, it's no wonder that by 4pm we want a brownie the size of Kansas, and that when we get home from work, no! We don't want to go to the gym. We don't want to lace up our shoes for hours slogging more miles on the road ..
So, in an effort to stop talking about myself and use my blog for good, I want to share with you an article that I think we could all do with reading, "A Master Plan for Taking Back Control of Your Life."
