A New Week

This past Saturday, we had totally made plans to go to Crossfit. But he didn't get home until 1:30 in the morning, and was too tired. So, I was like, I am going to go work out. I went to LA Fitness near our place because it was close and I had a list a mile long that I had to do. I went to a kickboxing cardio class. Yeah....that will be the last time I ever go to one of those classes. It was horribly boring. I don't know what would make me think that I would have a good time. I sometimes question what goes on in my head. OH well. LESSON LEARNED!

This past week has been and up and down week. We had a bump in the relationship. Wouldn't even really call it a fight. Something had been bothering him, and he just didn't know how to express it. So, instead of telling me what was wrong, he bottled it all up inside. I hate it when guys do that. Why can't they be more like us? Anyway, his problem was that I was "not the typical body type he goes for". Which, well, fuck. That means more dieting for me. I am glad at least he realizes how far I have come. I am doing the best I can, and by no means am I a cow. So, I see tons more salad in my future. The good thing is, he did say that he will still come to crossfit with me to help motivate me. And of course, after he gets all of this off his chest, it seems like our relationship is so much better. :)

Well, it is off to work in a bit. Hope everyone has a great week!

I'd Rather Hurt Than Feel Nothing At All....

This week has been fun...I think. LOL. It has been a long week. Worked 30 hours at the hospital this week. Ended up hurting my wrist pushing tubs of lard (Ok, not really tubs of lard but patients that weighed between 400 & 500 pounds!) So, doing the workout today was kinda tough.

The WOD was a variation of Fight Gone Bad in North Park Mall. I thought it was a lot of fun doing a workout in the mall. Not something that we get to do everyday. There were 8 stations:

Mountain Climbers
Kettlebell Swings
Air Squats
Sit ups

We did each station twice. Somehow, I got confused in the heat and ended up skipping a row. Oh well. Still had fun, and I think I got a good workout. The Mountain Climbers and Burpees killed my wrist. I am not much of a complainer about pain, so I don't mind that. It just really hurt when you have to support all your weight on your wrists. Oh well. I have my wrist in an ACE wrap (Phoenix helped).

Oddly enough, I missed having Phoenix there with me. And yes, I understand that we live together, and see each other every day (well, the few hours he is home at night after work). But with him there, I push myself just a little harder because I want him to be impressed with all I can do with Crossfit. Not that you ladies don't push me as well, you do. I don't know. Guess I just like having him around. :)

It was of course great seeing you again Carrie! We will need pool time too! Jamie, you are looking great! Good job on the In House Challenge! Thank you ladies for always being there for me! I am so lucky to have such great friends! (And Lindsey, if you are reading this too, you are awesome! We will be back to Deep soon!)

School's Out For the Summer!!!!

Well, it has been a while since my last post. Sorry about that guys. Not that I haven't wanted to post, just haven't had much to say. I missed Crossfit last Saturday because I had to work in the morning. And I feel like I am getting a workout with all of this moving that I am doing. Going up and down my three flights of stairs, and then going up another set of stairs when I get to Phoenix's place. Granted, I realize it is not the same. But it will have to do for now.

Today I went to yoga. Yay yoga! I have missed it over the past few weeks. I always mean to go, but then one thing or another gets in the way. I really want to go to Crossfit tomorrow, but I am not thinking that I am going to make it. Phoenix and I are both working on Sunday. He has a another project that is supposed to go live a week from Monday. And the team is not where they need to be. So, he will need to relax a bit on Sunday before he starts a 6 day work week with 10-12 hour shifts. Then he is leaving Friday to go back home to Michigan for his sister's graduation. He had originally planned to go back on the bike, but it just won't work out. So, instead of us doing our errands on Sunday like we normally do, we will be doing them on Saturday.

Oh, we set a date for me to go back to Michigan to meet his parents and family. His little brother Sam recently got engaged, and his parents are throwing an engagement party in August, and so we will be going. Yay! I am wicked nervous. Granted, I know they will love me, but I can still be a little nervous.

On a different note, I am planning on going to the CFDC mall workout. It just seems like fun to go do a crossfit workout in the mall. Anyone else going so I am not all alone? :) Hope everyone has been having a good week and you are enjoying this nice weather and getting some pool time in!
