In Closing…

So as I was laying in bed last night contemplating my life choices, I realized I never closed out this blog.  But then when I signed on this morning (thank you computer for remembering my password), I realized that I kind of had posted an update.  And then after that posted an angsty article about being pregnant.  And then just kind of left it hanging.  So in the spirit of not having any hanging chad, here’s an officially official closing post.

To summarize the story, in January of 2017, I had just had these…

And felt like this…

I tried out a few things, and then around summertime, I decided I wanted to do this…

And so I started training, and then I turned into this…

And I did it!  I got chosen for the show!

But just a week prior, this happened…

And let’s be honest, I was not excited.  At first.  It was pretty crappy for a while.  And I was super disappointed I wouldn’t get to be on the show.

But then this happened…

And now I couldn’t care less about the show.  He is so worth it.

But now I feel like this again…

…even more than before.  I tried to do burpees with the kids yesterday and I couldn’t even do a push-up.

The deadline for ANW 11 submissions was last week, and needless to say, I did not participate.

It’s honestly depressing how I’ve lost E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G I gained from training.  Lots of people ask me if I’m going to train to do the show again, and the answer is no.  1., I honestly don’t think it’s realistic to think I could get into show-shape again, under the current circumstances.  And 2., I’ve moved on.  I really needed a big goal, to really transform myself physically at that point in my life.

And while this…

…is not working for me, I don’t have a desire to be on the show anymore.  It was a super crazy ride, and will be a great story, but that season is over.

I do want to do more of this…

So those will be my goals this year.  To become more healthy again so I can do some OCR’s, and take some aerial classes.  I’d love to run off and join the circus.  After all, we’ve got a new ringmaster around here.

But American Ninja Warrior is over for me.  I’m going to count it as a success.  I did sort of technically go from a mom to a ninja warrior, and now back to a mom again.  So the cycle is complete.

And so is this blog…
