Fitness is like can't cheat on it and expect it to work.  SO true!  I was writing today's workout down in my notebook and realized I have been doing CrossFit exercises for 21 weeks.  UNbelievable!  I can't believe I have stuck with it for this long and I can't believe how much I still enjoy it!  I think it's because it's different every day and because the workouts themselves aren't usually that long, although I seem to take longer than most of the Mamas out there!  I really feel good about myself and LOVE putting on my clothes and seeing the difference in the way they fit.  I still haven't lost a lot of weight, but I'm okay with that because I can (and Honey Buns can) actually SEE a difference, and honestly isn't that just as important?  I think so!  :)

Today's workout is as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:
   50 Squats
   30 Pushups
   15 Pullups (jump up/slow down or reverse pullups)

I think I'm going to look up some videos on reverse pullups.  My jump up/slow down pullups aren't that slow going down!  It's more like "jump up and hang on going down"!!  I really would like to see an improvement and I have to admit I can't really tell a difference in my pullups.  Sounds like a goal!

I will admit I did not do Saturday's Fab Ab workout.  I really have a hard time fitting in exercises on the weekend - I just like to chill, so I'm not going to beat myself up about it.  The Fab Ab workouts are just "extras" anyway!  That being said, today's Fab Ab is 60 situps, 15 pushups, and a 50-second plank.  Oh lord!  I hope I can do that plank!  Maybe I can since I didn't do anything over the weekend.  :)

I am also going to do one of my pre-programmed treadmill workouts today instead of my run/walk combo.  I know i can tell a difference in my running, but I'd like to see if I can tell a difference doing the treadmill workout from the last time I did it.  Interesting to find out!

I'm also hoping to have some exciting news to share this afternoon.  BIG things are happening this morning and I'm SO, SO excited!!!  
NO time for this today.  I just got home from spending the day with my daughter.  She had an ultrasound this a.m. - first grandchild due on August 27th!!!  Super, super excited!!  :)


  1. OOO, I can't wait to hear the news!

  2. Thanks! I am so happy for her and her husband! It's been killing me to keep it a secret until her first trimester was done, but I did it! :)
