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!

Finally Nailed That L Sit – Sort of

Gymnastic Rings

We got to the box a bit early this morning. Hubby took to the rollers and to chatting. I decided on a whim to start my day feeling like a total failure by doing an L sit on the rings…except I didn’t fail. Only last week I attempted this and was not even able to […]
