What does that mean to you? When you decide to do something- wether it is taking on an 8 week challenge, a 30 day food challenge, or even training for the Fittest Games or Crossfit Games- how do you discipline yourself to get mentally tough?
I thought a lot about this yesterday as we were doing Elizabeth in the Women's Only class. Carey Kepler gave me some good advice recently. I asked how I should train for the upcoming Fittest Games. She said "You need to have a goal for each WOD. You need to think about how you are going to approach it each and every time."
It's so easy to just show up and work out. Sure, you get a good workout and feel good afterwards, but once you have decided something (like "I am going to do RX weight no matter what"), how does your mind change once you hear "3-2-1-go"?
Once again, Lisbeth Darsh has something to say about this. Read on...

You did it! You survived the I Am Crossfit/Trojan Challenge! Your forearms may be a little sore, your pride may be a little bruised, but it's only up from here, people!
I wanted to share a few resources with you as you plan your week of menus and Paleo goodness. The following recipe is from Sarah at Everyday Paleo. She is an inspiration for Women (and especially Moms) as she is a Coach, Mom of 3, and comes up with super easy and delicious recipes. Watch for her book and podcast coming soon!
As you are thinking about what to stock your pantry with, make sure to go here to see Sarah's Must Haves for your Paleo Pantry.
I made this soup last week and OMG! It was sooooooo good. Perfect for a rainy day in the ATX.

Every 3 months, we do the Crossfit Total Benchmark. There are a few reasons why we do this. The first one is to see our strength improvements over time.
The reason it is called Crossfit Total is because you add up the total of your 1RM (1 rep max) of the 3 lifts you performed. That is your Crossfit Total score. Mark Rippetoe, author of Starting Strength and owner of Crossfit Witchita Falls, developed a table that determines your ranking based on bodyweight (Bwt) and Total score.
To read more about Crossfit Total, check out this article from the Crossfit Journal.
based on tables by Kilgore, Rippetoe, et al. (Aasgaard Co, 2006)
