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 … [Continue reading]

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 … [Continue reading]

Penalty Burpees!

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, … [Continue reading]

Enough with the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls Or Give Me More?

It seems that for the past two weeks the favorite element to include in our WODs has been the SDHP or Sumo Deadlift High Pull with a Kettlebell. UGH. In general I do not mind this exercise but doing it so much became a drag. Give me a snatch or a … [Continue reading]

First Workout in the Cold and Snow

Today we woke up to extreme cold and a couple inches of slushy snow thanks to Hurricane Sandy. This does not bode well for Halloween and I am already trying to prepare my kiddos for the fact that it may just be too cold for tick or treating … [Continue reading]
