Summer = Hibernation

It’s odd that I would have a title like this, but I need to express how¬†fucking hot it has been here in Texas this summer. We went an entire month {after the flooding} without rain. The temperature climbed to over 100 degrees plus the humidex, meaning each day felt like it was 115 degrees. It … Continue reading

Good Week

On the heels of admitting that things have been going wrong for a while and that weight has come back, I had a week at crossfit that gave me faith again. I was able to modify the WOD’s to a point where I was still getting my ass handed to me but I wasn’t aggravating … Continue reading

Good Morning?

Oh let’s just say it’s a workout that is designed to bring you lots of pain and make you … Continue reading

Major Effort

Today’s workout was intense!! Partly because it was 8 rounds of 5 exercises, it was painful and turned mental fast. Then another reason–it was 85 degrees and my skin started to feel like it was on fire halfway through the workout. Double mental!!! Now we need to also acknowledge that I have incredibly thick blood, … Continue reading
