I am feeling really excited these days. There’s a lot of reasons but the main thing is I am just feeling really strong and healthy. I’m also enjoying seeing things come together for the wedding. All of the little details are so fun to plan.
I started my Sunday by sleeping in a little. I woke up feeling sore and stiff and convinced myself I would skip my workout and just have a rest day. I made myself a delicious breakfast of eggs and turkey bacon and fruit.
After breakfast I thought more about my skipped workout and realized it was silly to put it off on a day when I actually had more than enough time to do it. I got myself ready and headed out and busted out an amazing HIIT run. I felt so pumped when I came home that I added in some pull up work and ab work on the pull up bar. I finished with a Tabata plank workout.
I spent the rest of the afternoon driving to my parent’s house and home to pick up C and bring her back. It was nice to have her home and get back to our usual routine. I made a delicious dinner for us and did a little bit of prep work for the week and my lunch.
Monday morning was back to the usual routine for C and I. It was tough to get back into it, getting up a little earlier, having my breakfast instead of just a shake or a stop at Tim’s. We managed to get it all done and we both had healthy breakfasts. She was quite excited to try the new waffle maker. James made a waffle last night and we toasted it this morning and she really enjoyed it.
After work today I headed to CrossFit with my usual crew. We started with a strength wod of front squats, 7 sets of 3. I worked with one of my friends and I got up to a 90 lb set and felt pretty strong. I ended it there and when I went to record it in my binder I was surprised to see that was the current 3 rep max I had in there. I told my friend and she was like, well now that means you have to try 95lbs. I did and I got it! It felt strong too! I love the support I get there, its such a family and we push each other to do well, and to do better.
1 min dumbbell thrusters
1 min box step ups
1 min push ups
1 min double unders
1 min plate push
1 min rest
We did this for four rounds. I am happy to announce that during this wod I actually nailed about 6-7 double unders! It just kind of clicked a little bit. They were all singles but it was definitely progress. I left feeling so pumped and got home and made dinner and prepped lunch for tomorrow. We also went and visited the neighbors kittens and picked raspberries again. I can’t beleive I keep forgetting my phone to capture pictures of these adorable kittens.
Of course the night ends with my weekly fix of the Bachelorette. I swooned over Chris again… #farmersrule. So much for my early night, but I just had to watch it. It’s what I do on Mondays!!!
Are you still watching the Bachelor?
What was your favourite thing about today?
Mine was definitely feeling the sense of achievement and community at my gym tonight.
