Potluck and golfing

Thanks to everyone for joining us for Mikey's going away potluck and glow in the dark golf night. We had some amazing food and a show of some interesting golfing skills. Unfortunately I think more of us lost our ball than not and Larry was the only one who stuck it out and finished the entire course. Either way it was a lot of fun, something we may have to revisit.

We all know the nutrition blog exists, but unfortunately I have been slacking in keeping up with that blog and its been neglected. SO, Carley has graciously stepped up to take over. She's got some great ideas and a passion for food, check it out try some of the foods and make some comments. Definately worth a visit!

Found this web surfing this weekend and wanted to share. The author is Lisbeth Darsh of CrossFit Watertown. Enjoy.

The CrossFit Mindset

1) I will promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, from hour to hour, from minute to minute. But in that minute, I will do the very best that I can.

2) Lactic acid is my friend. The wind is my friend. Anything that opposes me is actually helping me to become stronger. If I had no opposition, I would be weak.

3) If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. And then I rest and live to fight another day.

4) I fear no man but I fear my workout. If I don’t fear my workout, it isn’t hard enough.

5) I may puke. I may cry. But I will not quit. Ever.

6) I never cheat. There is no honor in cheating. What joy can there be in a victory I did not earn?

7) The workout missed is the opportunity missed. I will not cheat myself of the opportunity to become a better athlete and person.

8) I understand the value of the push-up, the pull-up, the sit-up, the squat, and the deadlift. Just as there are a million ways to make chicken, so too are there a million ways to squat, sit up, pull up, push up, and deadlift.

9) I will give everything I have. And then I will find more within myself.

10) I don’t complain. Complaining is for crybabies. There are 11,232 babies born in the US everyday. I will leave the crying to them and I will soldier on.

11) I will bite off challenges, spit out results, and beg for more. What are you going to do?
