Life is good. Like, been walking around with a big smile on my face for days kinda good. This past Saturday I asked my girl to marry me. Like, for real. We’ve daydreamed together about our wedding for a long time and I was ready to finally work towards making it actually happen. ❤ A friend commented on Sunday out of the blue how much he admires our relationship. He loves how much we obviously care about each other and the respect we both share. There was more to his little speech but my not-so-rock-solid memory has misplaced it at the moment… Anyways, he made me smile cause it’s true 🙂 We can truly be ourselves together. A couple of geeks who do silly things and laugh non-stop. We both could spend the whole day cuddling and watching neflix and be perfectly happy. We like adventures together but we also like the less exciting times too! Life is good. 😀
Last weekend was a long weekend and for once we had no real plans, so what do you do when you have a whole 3 days to waste? Workout and make food!! By Monday my pretty much everything hurt. It was awesome!!
I’m going to talk food in a separate post, cause the workout recap is tedious and I can ramble on about food and nutrition for ages too.
Friday Sept 1 2017
HERO Friday – Brownwood Dallas 5
10 Shoulder to Overhead 65lbs
10 Box Jumps
Time – 28:25 Rx
Well, this was a challenging one no question. My cardio is horrible right now. I’m disappointed in myself for letting it get so bad, but overall I feel better when I’m not squeezing runs in on top of my already busy life so I’ll survive I guess. Except we’re competing in Festivus Games again in just over a month and I don’t want to totally suck.
Saturday Sept 2 2017
100 Air Squats
90 Double Unders
80 Jumping Pull-ups

We did this one as a partner WOD, cause Saturday is partner WOD day. Even split in half if was pretty rough! Can’t imagine doing it as individuals.

Ok, I was tired today. Friday and Saturday flattened me a little… well the legs anyways. Got chatting and missed the skills portion which I was relatively ok with since I really didn’t feel like 55 HSPU (or going upside down at all if I’m being honest). I kinda fluffed Barbara as well. Still got a good workout though! 😀 Sundays are so much fun and now that hoceky is done we can actually go to them.
