If there is one thing that I have learned after CrossFitting for 8 years, it's that taking myself, my life, and my workouts too seriously is usually a big mistake. Go ahead... I give you permission... lighten up. Loosen your belt. Relax the purse strings. Take part of this weekend to do something that you've always wanted to do. And when you're taking a class at CFLA, remember also to lighten up. Check in with your face... does the expression on it make you look like you actually want to be there? Smile. Make eye contact with someone you don't know - and share a little piece of yourself with them. Make a new friend. Don't worry so much about what you're supposed to get from the workout... it will deliver, as will your life, whether you worry about it or not.
Um... really, Zach?!
