I'm beginning to think my workouts are tailored more toward not dying than squeezing into a bikini this summer!  Ha!  That seems to be the goal to MOST of my workouts - don't die!  lol  Boy!  Have we had some tough ones lately!  :)

I am glad to say I did NOT die yesterday and I'm not sore today - always a plus!!  Well, now I have a goal to meet and I know what I need to do to get there.  It's just up to me to do it. Believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to it!  Okay, not the running part, but I know I'll get better so that's a good thing!!

CaliFit Mamas:
   15 Hang power cleans w/20 lbs
   15 Burpees

Brand X:
   "Nancy" for puppies
      3 Rounds for time
         Run 400 meters
         15 Overhead squats w/25-35 lbs

White Head:
      Box jumps

I am doing White Head's workout today.  I plan to save the Mamas workout to do when I do a training run, probably with tomorrow's run.  Sorry Brand X...I do not want to run two days in a row!  lol  I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not, but I do plan to do the 5k training run three times a week.  Right now, my days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I do not want to do two days in a row, but will if I miss one.  I know it sounds kind of boring to plan it that way and if it gets to the point where I'm not wanting to do (say) a Wednesday workout, then I'll switch it up.  I just know I won't get better if I don't run and the training specifically says to do it three to five times per week, so....looks like I'm running...a lot!  But not today!  lol
11:16 - Not too shabby!  I subbed reverse pull-ups for regular pull-ups, so that more than likely had a LOT to do with my time.  That was a great, quick, hot, and sweaty workout!  Very proud of my box jumps!  I really need to find something sturdy to increase the height of my box, since I don't want to spend so much money on a real one.  I can't believe how expensive they are!  Sit-ups were good, as well.  No stopping at all during this workout today!  That is ALWAYS a good thing!!  :)

Crazy story with my dog.  Anyway, both my dog and cat go down to the dungeon...I mean office with me every day - AND you all know I fell on my treadmill one day last week.  Well, I have this huge, ugly scab on my knee now.  I've done really good not to pick at it or anything and have left it alone.  So...after my bubble bath last night, the top part of the scab was coming loose from my skin.  I know this sounds gross, just bear with me.  Anyway - I left it alone and it's been hard because it's been SO itchy!!  We have a ramp that goes over the four steps to the lower level of our house and down the hallway there - all for Hayley's wheelchair access to the main level.  So, the dungeon (I mean office) is in the basement and you have to step off of the ramp down into the stairway to the basement.  Molly, our dog, does not go down by herself - I have to pick her up and place her on the stairs.  The cat, however goes down and up all by herself.  For whatever reason, today the cat and my blind dog decide to race up the stairs after work time was over.  The cat jumps up onto the ramp - Molly tries but can't (DUH!).  So she's waiting for me to pick her up and as I go to pick her up, she starts wagging her tail which somehow gets caught on the scab on my knee and rips it off!  OH the pain!!  AND the blood!  It was ridiculous how much I bled!  Honey-Buns didn't believe me when I told him what happened - he thought I had pulled the scab off by myself!  I was like "NO!  I wasn't touching it, I swear!!"  Anyway - who knew a dog's tail could catch on a scab and rip it off so quickly?  Now we all do!  :)


  1. Hey there! I have seen a lot of plans on the internet to make your own box, if Honey Buns is a handy man I'm sure he could build you a couple really cheap. :)
    Great job on the workout today! And good luck with getting Army fit! Looks like fun. I looked up my stats, I think I could do it, but I should give it a try!
    Have a great week! :)

  2. I've seen those you can do yourself, but remember...Honey-Buns likes to "call a guy!" lol - He absolutely refuses to let me own a saw, except for my electric chainsaw! I'll figure something out.
