Forced time out

My workouts last week rocked. I mean kicked ass. I felt great, strong, capable. I matched my 1RM and even went for a few extra reps in my strength work. I just knew that when I tested them again in the last week of the strength cycle, I would get several PR’s. Now we’re at this week. Kinda different story. It’s Wednesday, I’ve …

Cups and Competitions

Egg cups for my sister! Since I’ve moved home my sister has asked for some help with her eating/nutrition. She has given me ‘total control’ over her meals. This isn’t so easy, as she is still in high school and on a different meal schedule as me. So a lot of things will have to be prepared ahead of time, …

New Digs

If you follow me at all, either here or on my Instagram account (follow me to the right!) you will have seen me mention that Le fiancé and I have moved. This wasn’t a move to a cute little house, in a cute little neighborhood. Or to a sweet apartment in a trendy district. It was a move back. A …

Movin and shakin

Ok ok, I’m somewhat slightly late with my workout update from last week. I know it is Monday of this week, but we moved this past weekend. Everyone who has moved before, which I assume is 99% of the reading population, will have groaned after reading that sentence. It’s such a pain! Literally, figuratively, every which way you look at …

S.T.U.P.I.D

*Transparency alert*             *Transparency alert*                     *Transparency alert*                    *Transparency alert* I made a really dumb choice yesterday. For a really dumb reason, and I am paying for it today. My decision to attend CrossFit yesterday afternoon was driven by …

Why does the next one suck more than the last?

I find myself wondering that, at the end of every WOD, as I lay on the floor, dying. ‘That was awful!’ *pause* ‘But it was so awesomeeee’ And I’m back the next day. That’s how Crossfit has been going for the past few weeks. Excellent workouts, ridiculous WOD’s and I feel pretty good. I had to take a few weeks …

It’s April?

It’s been some time. Quickie updates are in order! First off, no relapse. Lesions are even improving some (guess the Tysabri works). At first you would think, yay! But when thinking deeper, the thought pops up, but why do I still feel this way…? Am I going to be stuck like this..forever? The answer I recently got from the doc …

Thank God for 3rd and 1!

Several updates are in order I believe. First off, let me share my Sunday Funday Torture workout! Sunday was a glorious day. Just about 7 hours of football on TV. The first game, didn’t care as much about, but as a sports fan, I watched most of it. What a game! Anyway, the second game is where it was at …

A or B?

Quiz question! What do you do when you are starting CrossFit the next day? A: Rest B: Test your 1RM (1 rep max, the heaviest weight you can lift for an exercise). If you answered A, you’re smart! If you answered B, you’re me! I couldn’t decide whether to follow my workout plan (which I haven’t been following) or make …
