Good Morning?

As you know, last week I decided to take the bull by the horns and start going to 6:15am WOD’s. And it was rough. Thankfully my body decided to acclimate and this week I have not as tired/cranky/crazy as I was last week. Heck I even woke up just before the alarm went off this morning! … Continue reading

Crazy Two Weeks!

Talk about going MIA! After the competition I went to a regular crossfit class but everything in my body cried during that workout. Plus the exposed skin on my thumb prevented me from doing a lot of work. It didn’t help that the workout had a lot of elements from the Saturday stuff, so I … Continue reading

HappyCrossFit Anniversary to ME!

A year ago, June 3rd 2013, I transitioned to regular crossfit classes! And what a year it has been! I have learned many things in the past year–my limits, how to do complex barbell movements and just how strong I really am. I love that fact that I transitioned to this, I feel like I … Continue reading

CrossFit Magnolia Beginner Competition

I did it, I jumped in with both eyes closed–I signed up for my first ever beginner crossfit competition!! It’s an hour from my house at a box called CrossFit Magnolia. It’s this coming Saturday June 7th, and the funny thing is that I didn’t hear about it until Thursday this week and had to … Continue reading

Disappearing Act

Hey everyone, long time no post. My life has blown up a bit–I have been taking pictures {on the path to doing my own photography business, wut!} every weekend, learning how to process pictures faster, oh and still trying to prep delicious foods every weekend. Add onto that a semi-promotion at work, where I am … Continue reading

CrossFit Open 14.3 – Beast Mode Activated!

Ola gentle readers! Yesterday I did the CrossFit Open 14.3—which was all deadlifts and box jumps {or for me and my wounded feet box step-ups}. When this workout was announced I was pretty excited as I am very strong in my deadlifting abilities, and I was hoping I could get through the box step-ups without … Continue reading

CrossFit Open 14.2

Last week was empowering {and ultimately painful}. This week is the exact opposite. I am injured, and yes I have been cleared to workout if I don’t run or jump, but when I tried to do an overhead squat today at 45# I fell forward and tweaked my heel again. And really hurting myself for … Continue reading

Healing…Heeling?

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was injured from doing the double unders on Friday. I didn’t go into too much detail but I was really injured. I couldn’t walk on my right foot on Friday night without shooting pain from my heel and I was kind of worried. I gave the leg … Continue reading

14.1 Results = EPIC

I don’t even know how to write this. How does one describe euphoria? Overcoming obstacles? Creating magic when it matters the most? This was Friday for me at the open. If you read my previous post, you will know that I have never done a double under in my life. I had practiced, a lot. … Continue reading

Taking Care of Myself

Last weekend my masseuse told me to do a few things in order to help my Achilles heal {on a side note WTF Achilles! STOP HURTING. NOW.}. So this week I started doing the following: After my workouts I am rolling a small ball from each toe to my heel. This is not fun. This is crazy … Continue reading
