Family Time

Family Time

Hello All! It’s been a while!  Have you missed me?   The past few weeks have been all about family time — which mean I was “unplugged”.  Starting in late April, I had to prep the house to receive visitors and prep myself for playing hostess.  Does any one else feel pressure when playing hostess? I would have to say that my anxiety was at about a 6 the whole time they were here… with peaks at 8 or 9 but…

17.5

10 Rounds for time That’s right — this week marked the last week of the 2017 Crossfit Open and the workout has 10 ROUNDS of 9 Thrusters and 35 jump ropes.  For RX it’s 65 pound thrusters and 35 double unders.  For Scaled vixens like me, we had 45 pound Thrusters and 35 single unders — which was amazing because I could literally single under all day.  Double unders are a whole different story  0_0.  I’m lucky to get one…

Friday fun day!

Friday fun day!

This weekend is gonna be awesome!     It’s hubby’s birthday and it’s when we’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day!     To prep, I’m going to make homemade cupcakes and attempt piping frosting (both store bought by hubby’s request and a chocolate buttercream recipe I found).  Fingers crossed!   Our plan is to spend all Saturday together. Starting with a workout, then brunch and a nap, dinner and a movie, and some serious couple time!   What are you…

Escape Room!

Escape Room!

Hubby and I are trying to not do our typical “dinner and a movie” dates — which are really just “eat here and then eat there” dates. So we tried an Escape Room this weekend and it was SOOOO FUN!!! First impressions We had never been to an escape room before — but decided to go with friends that had done a few.  This way, they’d have experience we could lean on.  The location we picked was brand new to…

Handstand?!

Handstand?!

Good morning!!   Happy 5 days until Christmas to you all!   This morning, I decided to share with you what I’ve been working on since on my break from running.  I’ve written about my Crossfit/Bootcamp class, which I’m still taking 3-4 times a week.  This group experiences has opened so many doors for both Hubby and I!  It’s been amazing, even if it’s only been about a month.   My Handstand! My ultimate goal of becoming a ninja requires…

I took a BOOTCAMP class!!

I took a BOOTCAMP class!!

You read the title correctly — I took a bootcamp class last night!  And DIDN’T DIE!   Why? If you’ve been following this blog for a few weeks, you’ll notice I’m floundering with the Post Marathon Blues.  Running a marathon was a huge goal which I previously thought was unachievable — or at least something I’d have to work on for a few more years.  Now that I’ve checked the box next to that goal, I’ve had to re-evaluate and…

November Plank Challenge

November Plank Challenge

Happy “It’s Almost Christmas” Everyone!!   It’s November 1st, so I can officially begin being annoyed by all things Christmas!  Yay!   Still Struggling I’m still trying to figure out what’s next for me now that I’ve ran a full marathon.  Sunday marked 2 weeks post marathon, so I’m considering running again — but I’m also considering switching to something like Crossfit or more traditional strength training. My main health/fitness goal is to be swift and strong — like a…

Taco Tuesday!

Taco Tuesday!

Just a quick post to share some treats from my taco Tuesday: First up – of course, my tacos!  Made tacos for dinner complete with a little dish of guac and some chips. Watched jeopardy with hubby as we ate. Yum! Next up – I admired my nail polish from last week — it’s somewhat chipped but I’m going to rock it until it’s a bit more chipped.  Instead of swapping polish, I had a bit of a hand massage…

Just for Fun Friday!

Happy Friday!! I’m so pumped that today is Friday!  I have lots of not so fun things planned for this weekend (Chores, chores, chores… ) but to balance that all out, I have a few fun things in mind! Tonight To start off the weekend like a true hermit, I have planned a quiet night in! I stumbled across this website that lists 17 things to watch on Netflix when you’re in the mood for a girl’s night in.  I won’t…
