My boyfriend, the CrossFitter

My boyfriend, the CrossFitter

Yes. You heard correctly. The Boy is CrossFitting. I. AM. SO. PROUD. It’s not just that he’s doing CrossFit.

And as a result, EIW suffered, and posts were months (almost a year in some cases) in between. It came to a point where I decided that it was either time to shut it down or really commit to it. And I decided to recommit. But in a new way.
