Weathers was wounded Sept. 28 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when he heroically ran to a rooftop through hundreds of incoming rounds to repel an attack of insurgents who were attempting to overrun his position. His actions saved the lives of five U.S. Green Berets and nine Afghan Commandos at his location. Weathers was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group, at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. Weathers is survived by his parents, Michael and Jere; sister, Carrie; brother, Dusten; and many other friends and family.

Reminder that we only have OPEN GYM today from 9am – 12pm.

The day after Thanksgiving…

This is typically the weekend when things start going downhill in fitness and nutrition plans. It’s real easy to take a couple days off, eat a bunch of food, and not slide ride back into your usual regimen. You owe it to yourself to keep going and not make the typical excuses that happen this time of year: I have a party to go to, I’ll start in the New Year (this one is mind boggling because its like 47 days away…A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN 47 DAYS), my family is stressing me out, etc. Do yourself a favor, and try to get to the gym this weekend. Not to pay for what you’ve eaten, but to keep your routine going! The one you’ve worked so hard on over the past year, or the one that you’ve just started because you’ve had enough. Try not to hammer all the leftovers with gusto because they are available. Make it sensible, make it reasonable. Stay on track, stay the course because you owe it to yourself and your family to keep yourself healthy.

Back to the thought of a lot can happen in 40 days. Instead of really hammering it when January 1 hits, think about all the progress that can be made in the next month and a half. That’s potentially 140 meals that you can eat that align with your goals. That’s 30-40 workouts you can get in that align with your goals. There is so much good that can come out of that time frame with the right mentality! Let’s do this! Let’s keep going! Let’s stay the course!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Grapevine CrossFit friends and family!

New Podcast: Your obligation to yourself through the holidays

As a reminder we will only have Open Gym Today from 8am – 10am. Feel free to come get in a workout before your Thanksgiving festivities begin!

What are you thankful for?

Take a minute to thank about all the things that have happened FOR YOU this year and what they mean in your life. I think we spend too much time focused on the bad and not enough about what good has gone on in our lives. So hug those close to you, tell them you love them, and enjoy this week.

What we are thankful for…

We probably don’t say it enough, but we are thankful for all the people that make it possible to do something we truly love. We are thankful for the friendships we’ve developed along the way. We are thankful for the learning experiences we’ve had a chance to be a part of. We are thankful we have a place to complain about our struggles and rejoice in our triumphs! We are thankful to get to watch families kids grow up to be the best versions of themselves, and even more watch you become the best version of yourself. We are thankful for YOU.l

-Happy Thanksgiving from the team at Grapevine CrossFit
