Crossfit and Play date!!

Friday, May 24, 2013

This morning I attended the 6:00AM Crossfit class at our gym... I am very fortunate that one of my former students and her finace are very dedicated and educated when it comes to this form of fitness... So today being my FIRST day... she came and worked side by side with me for the entire program!! I am not very good when it comes to certain moves, exercise, which she knows.... she was so patient with me... the student has become the teacher!!! :) However, I'm not sure if I could've gotten through the workout without her... my kids purchased me a 30 day Crossfit package... during this thirty period I shall see if it's for me or not... I LOVE to work out... but also like to ENJOY what I'm doing... not sure I can say I enjoyed it today, but I certainly enjoyed working with Lori.... perhaps my attitude towards Crossfit will change as I endure..... The workout was supposed to be 40-60 minutes... it took me an hour and twenty minutes... I'm okay with that... afterwards I stopped by our park and got an almost six mile walk in... :)
Has anyone else tried Crossfit? I would love feedback!!!

Getting ready to hit the showers, as I have a lunch/playdate with one of my six year old grandsons at 11:00 today!! Love summer time!

    I'm not familiar with Crossfit at all, but I do know that the more you do something, the easier it gets. Just hang in there. I am sure you will start enjoying it soon.

    Good for you! Isn't it great when the roles reverse? I had the opportunity to play in a pit orchestra for a musical. I sat right next to one of my former first graders who is now getting his PhD. We had a blast for a week! emoticon

    CrossFit is a great way to work out! It IS hard, so I had to ease it very gradually and am still pretty slow, but I get better every week,

    The bootcamp classes I attend at my gym are similar to Crossfit and I love it. I love body weight exercises and trying new things. Enjoy!

  Agree completely. I have 11 grandchildren and they all bring joy to our lives. I am blessed to be able to watch the youngest, my 10 month old grandson, twice a week. They keep me feeling young! emoticon

    Grandchildren are a blessing, a gift from God!! Mine (32 month old) called me today, while I was in the shower. Left me a voice mail, singing Happy Birthday. You can hear my daughter in the background coaching her. I play it over and over again!

Thanks for sharing today!!

In memory...

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

In loving memory of all those who've perished in the Oklahoma tornado. Praying for God's peace and comfort during this tragic time.

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye. You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow, what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.- Anon

First day of summer break...

Monday, May 20, 2013

Today is the first day of summer break! I've been up since 5:30, slept in a bit, but have accomplished very little... feeling very lazy, with no "To Do List"- feels kind of nice but also makes me feel a bit guilty... so in just a bit... I'm going to make a "To Do List"- then see what happens!

Have wonderful day!

    Don't even begin to feel guilty. You deserve a break.

I assume that you teach - if so, I know the delight you are feeling with the summer stretching before you!

God bless!
