When I moved to New Brunswick my life changed so much that making time for sports and fitness was put on the back burner. For the first 2 years of living in NB this mindset continued. I ate what I wanted and only exercised when I started to feel bad about how I looked. One day I was on Facebook and a friend had posted some pictures of her doing CrossFit. I had no idea what it was but it looked kind of interesting so I Google'd it. I think I spent a solid 2 or 3 hours watching videos of people doing CrossFit workouts and after that I new I HAD to try it. I messaged my friend and she gave me the contacts of a local box (what CrossFitters call their gyms). I started about 2 weeks later and I have been hooked ever since. I literally haven't gone more that a week without making it to the gym every other day. I am a super competitive person and I forgot how much I LOVE to push myself to become better. Joining this gym also helped me to adjust to living in a new province even more. I made my own friends and my own life, separate to what Scott and I have together. I think it's healthy to have things that you enjoy to do alone.
