GOALS {2014 Edition}

Buckle up beotches! I have been doing a lot of thinking about my physical abilities and where I want to go for 2014. I have been thinking about this for a good 6 weeks and consulting with my trainers and everything. I have been thinking about my food and have experimented over the past 10 … Continue reading

Love my CF Family

When I joined Pearland Crossfit, the furthest thing from my mind was whether or not the people I would meet there would become an integral part of my life. I wanted to be friends with them, for sure. I wanted to look forward to workout out with the same people and had a small group … Continue reading

Nephew FUN!

My sister, husband and two kids are visiting for two weeks, and what does that mean?? Nephews working out with their aunt!! Jared and Blake had been to soccer camp last week and I wanted them to try this out and see if they liked it. Jared is 13, Blake is 8. For their first … Continue reading

Pain thy Name is…

“Daniel“. Wow. As I write this, my calf muscles are pissed and expressing themselves by being tighter than a virgin on prom night. I did something outside my box–I did a Hero WOD. What is this?? Oh let’s just say it’s a workout that is designed to bring you lots of pain and make you … Continue reading

Sugar Challenge

While visiting my family in Canada last week I was talking to my mother about my struggles with sugar. It’s my crack and I know it. And honestly, I like it. I get that I could be smaller, weigh less if I didn’t eat ice cream as much as I do. She has seen me … Continue reading

Night o Fun! And clean? Well…Mostly

After all our hard work, I invited all the people from Body Shop to my house for a potluck dinner! Paleo was the theme, and I have to say we were very successful. I made my cilantro chicken recipe and then we also had: Spinach salad with strawberries Stuffed Pepper (my favourite dish of the … Continue reading

Goal Achieved!

It is with a nervous, yet excited, tug on my heart that I announce that yesterday was my last Body Shop class and that as of Monday I will be attending “real” CrossFit classes with my workout buddy Hayley. We tried out a class last week, and although my arms might have complained a little … Continue reading

Going Back

Today I had the day off (yay Memorial Day!) and my gym was closed, so I decided to go back to TransforME to see my old gang and see how I would do for an hour workout, since I am now doing much shorter (nay more intense) workouts. It was wonderful to see the ladies … Continue reading

REAL Crossfit!

On Wednesday my friends Hayley and Debbie and I decided we would try out the “real” crossfit class at our gym. You might be confused…haven’t I always been doing a crossfit class?? I have been doing a bootcamp at the Crossfit gym, where the weights are lower and there is less cardio. Frankly, I hadn’t … Continue reading


I needed it. I burnt the midnight oil on the weekend, working at the store and then coming home and spending 2-3 hours writing performance reviews (they are done, so yay!). Yesterday I was at work at 6am and didn’t get home until 6pm. I was beyond tired. I fell on the couch and said … Continue reading
