A Recap of Sorts

oh hi there!  I guess I took a bit of an unexpected hiatus from here. Oops. I guess life got in the way again. #rude 

So what has been going on with me?  Not much really. When I last left you I mentioned we were going to a Jays game. Well we did that and it was so.much.fun. We went with friends of ours and we ended up have the most amazing seats.  

our view
 

J and I are fans of the Jays every year. This year they are doing really well and the fan base has really grown (cough cough bandwagon) and so the games are MUCH busier than we are used to. It’s great but the lines are a lot longer and crowds aren’t my favourite. But I sucked it up and we had a blast.  

see how much fun we had?!
 

We may have had a little too much fun which resulted in quite a headache later that evening. I managed to get through it and felt surprisingly ok the next day for work.  I made it in for my usual workouts Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and then took Thursday off because I had a very important appointment.

Thankfully most of the week is behind me and the weekend is upon me again. It’s a long weekend which is amazing and it’s what feels like the last weekend of Summer. We need to make it count. Before we know it there will be all the pumpkin things stuffed in our faces reminding us summer is over.   

Sorry friends but I couldn’t care less about pumpkin spice lattes. I don’t get what all the hype is about. 

Anyhoo lets enjoy the last weekend before school starts and we are back to our routine and the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler. 

xoxoxo

Pumpkin spice- can you even? 


On the Mend

Today was back to work after a nasty Easter stomach virus. Ugh. Just thinking about how awful I felt makes me shudder. Thank God C was at her grandparents and missed it. I’m not worried she will catch it because that would be the worst.

Today I felt better but still not 100%. I feel gross after I eat but I had a real appetite again. I hit up my usual CrossFit class and wasn’t sure how that would go. Thankfully my coach knew I had been ill so suggested I take it a little easier since I was likely still dehydrated and weak.

We started with some skill work on our overhead squats. I have never gone heavy with these because form is so important. I worked with a training bar today and just worked on not leaning forward. I feel like it was good for me and I may have shown some improvement.

WOD 1 – 6 min
21*18*15*12*9*6*3*
The numbers represent kettlebell swings and the * is a sprint.

WOD 2- 6 min
6 min manmakers.
Ouch! This one I skipped and just did some arm work with dumbbells. I didn’t think I could do the up and down of these. The first wod already knocked me on my feet.

WOD 3- 6 min
2 sit ups
Farmers carry across parking lot
2 burpees – I did air squats bc of my tummy issues.
Ladder up by two after each cycle.

All the wods were done outside. It was a beautiful day out. The temperature on my car gage said 25 degrees! I wore shorts and a tank and felt awesome.

I then headed home and stopped at the farm because C was there with J. There were two new calves born that were super cute. C was having a great time running around.

I got home and got to work on dinner. The nice weather had me craving homemade burgers. I threw together a bunch of ingredients and we ended up with these beauties.

It was delicious and it tasted a little bit like Summer. I would be totally ok with it if this weather sticks around for awhile.

Did you have to work today on Easter Monday?
I did. Booooo.

What “tastes like Summer” for you?
