rather than complain for the next 1657 words (you know i’m capable)…i will just say that the past few weeks have whooped me. we’re working on a game-changing project for fitlosophy and the head-honcho here is pooped. working nights and weekends too has caught up with me…and yes, i still love what i do. we entrepreneurs, we’re kinda our own breed. operating on little sleep, working long hours, and of course still fitting in (most of) my grueling crossfit workouts for the past 2 weeks: it’s taken a toll. sore throat, sniffly nose, and a headache….and all i keep thinking is “i can’t get sick! like 3 more days and this is gonna be done, c’mon body – don’t fail me now!”. i think the only reason i haven’t gotten full-blown sick is because i’m willing it away – and i have a very strong suspicion that when i finally stop long enough to rest, it’s gonna get me. so i’m loading up on zicam, vitamin c, water, and um, not so much sleep. (do as i say, not as i do, right?)
and why, you might ask, would one submit themselves to this? well for me, it’s not torture – but a highly intense passion that drives me even whenever i’m exhausted. and if you have something you love as much as i love this little company, then you can relate. i see fitlosophy maybe the way some people see their soul mates. (stay with me here.) i have wanted to be an entrepreneur since i was, well…born. it’s part of who i am. when i was little i thought i owned my dad’s business and was quite the little bigshot (or so i thought). but then something happened once i left college and got a job: my mind was always turning with ideas. i wanted to own my own business, but what was i passionate about? i knew from watching my parents how grueling it could be and had heard that you only want to do something you love – because there are some days you don’t like it. so it took years for me to realize that what i was looking for was right in front of me. so i “married” my passion for fitness with my desire to be an entrepreneur, and almost four years later…with a lot of blood, sweat & (lots of) tears: i’m still in love.
case in point: it’s all worth it for days like today that brought only good news, better news, and great news!
so what does this have to do with crossfit? um, not much. 2 things: 1) i’m dying from the workout yesterday and 2) i’m gonna do everything in my power to not get sick so i can stick out the next 14 days. already seeing results in just this 16 days: i’m sold!
back to work…
