Hot Shot 19

Yesterday I took a leap of faith–I did a big Hero workout.But it was for a great cause–to support the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighting team who tragically lost their lives on June 30, 2013 while fighting a fire in Yarnell, AZ. Honestly, working out in their honor was the least I could … 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

Day of Personal Records!!

Day two of CrossFit and it was pretty fantastic! I also got a massage today and my muscles were so tight from the workout on Monday that she didn’t get to finish my body. Seriously!! That has never happened. I am highly amused and I felt we got a lot worked out in this massage. … Continue reading

First Class = New Things!

Hayley, Debbie and I did it! We joined CrossFit and not only survived, but thrived! I would like to express how much the warm up sucked. Running in 95 degree heat is not fun. I did it, I didn’t die, but I struggled. Thus my first observation: warm ups are harder in crossfit. So here … 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

Missing: Fitbit

I regret to inform people that my fitbit fell out if its casing and is now missing. I am sad. Thankfully I have a supportive husband who has helped me feel better about the situation. I will be getting a new one, and I might need to tape it to its holder cause this thing is not … Continue reading

Went Anways

I did not want to work out tonight–I was feeling tired, I am stressed about work and frankly all I wanted to do was go home and curl up on the couch. I almost talked myself out of working out all the way there. But I went and I am so thankful I did!! Even … Continue reading
