Finally Felt Good Working Out Again
Friday, January 06, 2017      2 comments

Tuesday night I went to bed and did not sleep. I spent the night tossing and turning, so I didn't get a workout in that day. I'm human and when I'm running on 3 hours sleep and dealing with tiny humans...I'm done at the end of the day.....Whic... Read more
4 a.m. is too freakin' early....
Tuesday, January 03, 2017      4 comments

Ugh...I hate waking up at 4 a.m. It is not a happy time for me, but I did it yesterday and I'm on track to do it again tomorrow. This will be my new gym time! On a positive note, I'm 98% compliant with Paleo right now! All my breakfasts ... Read more

I want to be strong. I'm still struggling with work/life/gym balance. So I'm going to switch this around. It's going to be gym/life/work balance. I'm still finding my after work/evening time is being consumed by my job. This is restrict... Read more

In January of this year, I was hired as a full time teacher. I went from being an assistant who got to walk away at the end of the day, to the teacher whose job it seems never ends. I'm finding my gym time is suffering and my eating is sufferi... Read more

Thursday, December 31, 2015      4 comments

2015 was a crazy year for me! I dedicated myself to CrossFit and never looked back. This decision gave back to me in so many ways it is unreal. Paleo - I converted to the Paleo lifestyle of eating. ALL my labs showed huge improvements. ... Read more
Sometimes you need a challenge to get back on track!!

The end of August/beginning of September was crazy for me. My two oldest daughters both got married. We celebrated the oldest in our area and went to SC for our other daughter. It made sticking to Paleo a challenge and I fell off the wagon. ... Read more

Sugar is Evil!!!
Monday, August 10, 2015      0 comments

I've been watching a lot of documentaries about food and our food supply. It's been very educational and the major conclusion I have made is...sugar is evil. It is in almost everything, everything!! This is especially true if you eat a lot o... Read more

For the first time since I was a teenager, I feel good about my body. I've only lost about 25 lbs and I'm still overweight, but damn...I'm starting to look hot! Even when I was 118 lbs when I turned thirty, I didn't feel this good about my bod... Read more

Stepped on the scale this morning...168.8! Wow...can't believe I'm in the 160's again. I haven't been this small in over 7 years. I also went to Target and tried on some workout clothes. I almost took a selfie of me in booty shorts and a spo... Read more
Big Changes...
Sunday, April 26, 2015      0 comments

It's been a while since I blogged. Between work and CrossFit, I don't have a lot of free time. I'm transitioning to paleo and I feel like all my free time (what little there was) has been spent cooking. It's been worth it though. My upset st... Read more
You Can't PR Every Time!
Thursday, February 26, 2015      2 comments

I did my one rep max for the snatch yesterday. I PR'd my snatch (90#) and my power snatch (95#). The snatch was a big deal for me, because when I started I wasn't catching the bar in a squat and now I can. Anyways, the WOD last night cons... Read more

So I haven't been on SparkPeople much. I started a two month Olympic Lifting class in January. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursday I take the Oly class and then do my normal Crossfit WOD afterwards and then do WODs on the other days. I've be... Read more
Negative is Easy!
Sunday, January 04, 2015      4 comments

Why is it so much easier to think negative thoughts than it is to think positive thoughts? A quick example: I get on Facebook this morning and there is a shout out to all the people who competed in the throw down at another box this weeken... Read more
