Weekend of Random

Story of my life this week. Caffeine overload and oranges in a bag. It’s been a few days but nothing new to share, really. Life gets in these ruts for a few days at a time and it takes me a minute to figure out that I’m not really thriving…but surviving (totally stolen from THIS …

The day dawns

Tuesday arrived again but not with the same dread as usual. I’m sick..again…and the pollen count isn’t helping. But the day wasn’t a total waste. Check out my new Divergent stickers and some blog love from Krissyanne Designs! I LOVE her (mostly) Dauntless stickers and her entire shop makes me smile. Huge. My morning workout …

Whoa Monday..calm yourself.

     I woke up to this loveliness.   I love storms that are just some light thunder and heavy rain. I’m not fond of being shaken out of my bed by lightning and thunder AND the power out. That’s some crazy stuff I don’t need on Monday. I got out some candles and carried on …

The Divergent Workout

When the producers of the first movie in the Divergent Series brought in trainer JJ Perry, he didn’t know what he would be dealing with. According to Perry, “I evaluated everybody right off the bat. I needed to see who was strong, who was fast, who was slow, who was flexible and who was tight.” …

Spring Weekend

Since some places are gearing up for more snow, I won’t complain about our cool and rainy weather. That didn’t stop me from hitting the lake for a long trail hill session. I had to dig out my Gore Tex shoes so my feet stayed relatively dry for the couple of hours I was out …

CrossFit Open 15.3

Scaled Version: 50 wall balls and 200 singles. I can do that. I’m glad they included a feasible scaled version this week. Last weeks’ “scaled” was ridiculous. The only problem is I’m not sure WHEN I can do it. I will be out of town for a wedding this weekend and I’m not sure if …

Weather delay??!!

In Alabama, we rarely see winter weather around the Tuscaloosa area. But when we have a threat of anything frozen or frosty, we panic like the world is coming to an end. And after last year’s Snowpocolypse, well, nobody is taking any chances. We had a lot of rain last night, around 2 inches, and …

Happy New Year!!

I can’t say I’m sad to see 2014 close out. It was a great year up until August. After August, I just pasted a smile and faked my way through the holidays. I was glad to changes in the weather and the excitement in the kids at school with each fall holiday. I was just …

Holiday HIIT

  Christmas is HERE! Technically, we have a few more days, but my body is wearing the battle scars of a hectic holiday so far. Eating treats, running a lot, walking more, eating more treats, and battling the flu means I’m a big ol’ wreck at the end of the day. I have burned all …

X-Train Tuesday-Yoga

The next few weeks are going to be equally exhilarating and exhausting with a whole bunch of hectic thrown in. The mad rush, the long lists, the loads of rich food, the workouts thrown to the side to make way for more rushes, lists, and food. It’s a time of year I look forward to, …
