4th of July WOD!!

4th july crossfit WOD

Happy 4th everyone!!! I typically skip WODs that come on holidays because it always seems that those are the days with crazy hero workouts. You know…when you run for 5 miles before you even start the main part of workout or you do 200 burpees for time as a cash out. Yeah, no thanks. I […]

I am competing in the CrossFit Games Open

I know that I am not going to be competing in any official CrossFit competitions any time soon but even so I felt I had to add my names to the hoards of athletes who are going to participate in The Open. Why? Well, why not? I figure at the very least it will help […]

My First Two-A-Day

For a couple weeks now my husband has expressed a desire to start adding a two-a-day to our week, meaning we do two CrossFit workouts/classes in the same day, either back to back or separated by a couple hours. Well, when I was in Detroit for the auto show earlier this week he decided to […]

CrossFit = Loads of Fun

Black iron kettlebells

Had another great today. I literally bounded out of bed to get ready for the gym which is kinda unusual for me but it was one of my “favorite trainer” days. My seven year old son was not so enthused though and told me he “doesn’t feel like going to the gym today.” Ha! I bribed […]

New Year – What a Difference Maker

Happy New Year!!!! I took 5 days off around the holidays but right afterwards got back into the swing of things. I really don’t have any fitness resolutions beyond wanting to keep doing what I am doing now and improve and PR as much as I can. I also want to join the Elite CrossFit […]

Whole30 Day Two – I Have Heart!

it starts with food

This is day two of my Whole30 program. Not grumpy at all today but I REALLY want dairy. Who cares about sugary stuff, give me some cheese or some yogurt stat! It has made me realize that all my snacks between meals were dairy based and though I would have said they were not addicting […]

First Day of the Whole30

Today I started the Whole30 plan. I am already primal but I am going to try strict paleo (no dairy) and do the Whole30 and stay off any sort of sugar for 30 days. We shall see how it goes…I was pretty grumpy today! Did a 5:00 PM workout tonight which is unusual for me. […]

New CrossFit Shoes!

It’s always a happy mail day when I get new CrossFit gear or new shoes. It’s doubly wonderful when it’s both! On Tuesday afternoon my early Christmas gift to myself arrived…Reebok CrossFit Nanos. I think at $109 they may be the most expensive shoes I have ever bought (not on sale). I really, really wanted […]

Penalty Burpees!

My hubby from yesterday's class, sporting his Movemeber mustache.

The day started out kinda rough with one heckavu brutal workout. I think part of the issue might be that I am feeling puny again after a week of crappy holiday eating. I had the usual turkey and mashed potatoes but also ate lots of cornbread, pie, doughnuts, and ice cream. Once I go down […]

Back After Illness With Bruises to Prove It

I ended up getting the cold late last week that cycled through all my kids. I managed to fight it off for a while but finally succumbed and ended up taking almost a week off from CrossFit classes. Ugh! Taking time off typically messes with my head. I start to think that maybe I am not […]
