At 1pm on the 25th of March I had my first boxing match. After three rounds, a piercing bell signalled the end of the fight. However, as one fight ended, another had begun - namely an ongoing battle with bulimia.
I have thought a lot about why CrossFit training has been key to stopping my OCD. I think it boils down to being constantly challenged. In the beginning I was replacing my feelings of anxiety and self-doubt with a sense of achievement.
I learned some fundamental human psychology to better understand the triggers for my Non Epileptic Anxiety Disorder and have managed to get myself to good health again. I owe so much of that to exercise.
