My general rule with exercise is that if I’m not enjoying myself, what’s the point? And I mean, yeah, there are days when I so don’t want to run or lift, but in general I’m excited to do it. If it’s causing you that much stress/disruption, quitting sounds like the right choice. You sound like an active person besides CrossFit, so it shouldn’t be a problem to fill in the void.

That sounds like an awful morning routine.  I love working out at home because it saves SO much time.  I use a lot of Jillian Michaels DVDs.  (I still want to get Insanity but haven’t been willing to fork over the cash (maybe a Valentine’s Day present to myself?))  I’ve gotten killer results — but I put on muscle really easy.

I would say that crossfit just doesn’t fit in your life anymore. It sounds like your very active without the crossfit and you could just do the excercises at home if need be! You should focus on things you enjoy doing. Also crossfit is crazy expensive (at least where I live).

@letselopetoeurope53:  Agreed, it sounds like it doesn’t fit into your life at this stage. You are very active and that is great! You don’t always need to be in 100% fabulous shape every day of your life. You can just be healthy and happy for awhile while on the mend. Cross fit will always be there when your ready to start up again.

I just started up my morning bootcamp again. 3 days a week I get up at 6am to work my butt off. I did it for 6 months straight last year and felt and looked great. But after Christmas I just needed a break. I needed down time. I started up again on Monday and I’m excited about it! I’m happy I didn’t run it into the ground to the point of hating it. Sure I lost some musscle mass and put on a little bit of weight but it’s not the end of the world.
