Progress!

Progress!

Tuesday’s workout was LUNGES!  I’ve written about lunges before and have experienced a handful of workouts where the predominant movement was lunges. Lunges and I have a history. The second time we went to Crossfit, the workout included lunges… and was SOO PAINFUL! To start with we had to do either 50 double unders or 100 single unders.   At this point, I could only do singles… Then we had to choose a medicine ball and first complete 10 wall…

Idle Hands…

Idle Hands…

“Idle hands are the devil’s playthings” — ever heard that old saying?   I’ve TOTALLY been feeling that way lately.  My summer is officially here — so I’ve reverted back to sloth mode.  I’ve been super lazy, spending most of my time watching TV, Movies, or YouTube videos.  Haven’t felt super energized or motivated for any particular project.  Instead, I find myself flitting from one project to the next without really finishing.  I have a barely started puzzle on a…

Fueling Horror Story to share!

Fueling Horror Story to share!

Yesterday at the gym, one of the other members had a fueling issue and ending up puking after the workout.  It was a short workout and SO FUN, but that didn’t save him.  After he recovered a bit, he mentioned how this happens to him every 4 months or so — he’ll forget his optimum fueling plan and then end up puking after a workout.   Why did this happen? I can’t speak for others — but I have a…

Impending Trips?

Impending Trips?

Does anyone else stress themselves out about upcoming events?  I DO!  I can worry myself into a fit if I’m not careful!  My hubby and I call this catastrophizing – worrying about all the “what if’s” that could happen if worst came to worst.  I have a trip coming up in about two weeks and I’m really trying to avoid thinking about it if at all possible.  If I can, I will avoid putting any energy towards negative thinking until…

Friday favorites. 

Friday favorites. 

Naps are my favorite.  My absolutely favorite thing.  But like all great loves of my life, they are sometimes hard to come by. Hard to get if you will.  I will have a nap today… or tomorrow… or someday!

Summer!

Summer!

To all you teachers out there — congrats!  You made it to summer!  (Or you will soon, if you’re not quite out yet). Around here, kiddos are officially done for the school year, and teachers are in the process of cleaning up their rooms for summer time shut down.  University schedules are a bit different, so our kiddos have been out a bit longer.  I’m actually teaching a summer course, so I’ve had my taste of summer and have already…

Tired?

Tired?

This week has been just a series of bad nights of sleep — one after another.  It started Monday night; I couldn’t find a comfortable position due to “Post Murph Soreness”.   Memorial Day This Hero Workout was done Monday in honor of Memorial Day and all those who gave their lives for our country.  I heard on the news that morning that of the US population “of age” to serve, less that 1% currently do.  This, to me, shows…
