Nothing Sounded Good

Posted by 2 years ago 4 Comments 1738 views

My intention was to come home from work and make dinner, but I didn’t have it in me. The 5-Year-Old-in-3-Days was begging me for a peanut butter sandwich. The 10-year-old already ate his weight in snacks after school. The Husband had to run errands and needed to head out. There I was, overwhelmed, unmotivated and exhausted […]

Look at it. Just look at it! That is my bathroom counter at this very moment and it’s looked like that since Sunday. I know, I know, not much to boast about — I kept my bathroom clean for three whole days BUT it represents my current goal to do What I Can When I Can […]

Holy $hit — I Can Do Pull Ups!

Posted by 2 years ago 6 Comments 1656 views

Eight years ago I wrote a post called HOLY $HIT – I just ran a 5K! and can still vividly remember that feeling of proving myself wrong. There was no doubt about it, I was not a runner. I couldn’t run. People told me I wasn’t good at. It just wasn’t who I was. Until I […]

Friday The Husband had a much needed heart-to-heart after the kids went to bed. You know those moments in a marriage when you can hold it in or let it out? Well, we let it out and I’m glad we did. Saturday I spent the morning at the gym judging for the CrossFit open. This […]

Posted by 2 years ago 4 Comments 6464 views

Hey guys! I finally feel like I’m finding a bit of balance again. I’m trying to take my own advice and hold on to the What You Can When You Can mindset without overanalyzing, selling myself short, comparing myself to others and (the kicker) trying to be perfect.

So much awesomeness this weekend! On Thursday they released the first CrossFit Open workout and my excitement about it started to plummet after I tried to do a chest-to-bar pull up and failed. Knowing I wouldn’t be competitive in the workout, I thought for sure I could power through them one at a time at […]

Regrets, I’ve Had a Few

Posted by 2 years ago 2 Comments 1618 views

You know that meme that says something like “no one ever regrets a run or a workout.” Well, I’m experiencing what may be the reciprocal of that. Lately I ALWAYS regret when I eat crap. Always. Yet I still sometimes do it. This past weekend I went a little nuts with the chocolate chip cookies and […]
