On a Roll

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.

  1. Good for you on your gym accomplishments today! I didn’t love much about my day, but I did love my slow cooker dinner and the sunshine, so there’s that.

    I’m watching the bach right now, and Chris has really grown on me. I can’t see her being a home maker in Idaho though, its not her.
