A Super Sensational Saturday!

Posted by 3 days ago 4 Comments 309 views

Today started at the gym. The CrossFit Open kicked off this week and Saturday is when I attempt the official workout. I’m not thrilled with my score for 15.1 but I did it as prescribed with toes-to-bar, 75-pound snatches and all!

Posted by 6 days ago 19 Comments 535 views

Yesterday I put on my favorite pair of lounge-around-the-house pants. I totally forgot about them until I cleaned out my drawer a few weeks back — remember when I was cleaning out a drawer a day? Yeah, I need to get back to that.

Posted by 7 days ago 16 Comments 427 views

Despite going to bed earlier and earlier this week I’m still really tired, like first-trimester pregnancy tired. Remember that feeling? I just can’t get the thought of a nap out of my head, yet if I actually indulge in a nap I feel MORE tired afterwards. It’s weird.

Do You Eat on a Schedule or Intuitively?

Posted by 2 weeks ago 36 Comments 750 views

This week’s question is inspired by Erika from Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss — who I was lucky enough to do a magazine spread with about weight maintenance last year… That’s me and her (and Michelle) cracking up at one of her jokes at the photo shoot.

Just a Perfectly Perfect Day

Posted by 2 weeks ago 7 Comments 407 views

Despite the horribly frigid temperatures here, I had a fabulous day! It all started at the gym (as it normally does) where I worked on some Turkish Get-Ups (TGUs.) TGUs are one of my favorite lifts and probably the only thing I feel really competent doing. They are normally done with kettlebells but because our gym doesn’t […]

I’ve been wanting to post about this since Christmas! That’s when my awesome mother-in-law got me quite possibly the best gift ever — she has a habit of doing that. When I opened it on Christmas morning I didn’t quit know what it was. Then I realized what I was holding was the answer to […]
