Day 109 (Part 1) - No Confidence August 17 2015

I began to notice that I had issues with self-doubt and self-confidence when I turned 40. I had started working out at my friend's Crossfit box. I would be brought to tears trying to lift a barbell over my head. Those barbells can really do some damage if I don't handle them right. While my technique needed practice, I knew I was strong enough to lift the weight. Where did my confidence go? Why couldn't I find me?

Olympic and power lifting at Crossfit revealed that I lacked confidence.
