Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans - John Lennon.  I love this!  It seems that lately things have gotten in my way, when in actuality it's just life.  I feel so bad about not getting all of my work outs in, but sometimes things happen and it just doesn't work out the way I want it to.  So, I'm just going to let it all go and do the best I can.  I know "life" will settle down soon and I'll be back in my normal groove and everything will right itself.  Argh - obstacles!!  :)

As you can see, I did not work out yesterday.  Honey-buns was at his mother's all afternoon and I finally heard from the wheelchair people.  They were going to try to fit us in yesterday afternoon/early evening, but apparently couldn't.  I didn't want to be in the basement working out, nor upstairs working out because I can't hear the doorbell.  Anyway, I should have just risked it because they didn't make it after all.  So, it looks like they are coming today sometime before 1:00 - which means they should NOT interfere with my workout time.  

Sounding a little wishy-washy here, BUT...I think I'm going to do CrossFit workouts this week.  I plan to do the one HiitMamas posted yesterday, because it was a "compare to".  I love those!!

Filthy Fifty - or Fat Fifty as Mamas called it
   Jump rope
   Wall Ball
   Back extensions
   Push press, 20 lbs
   Knees to elbows
   Walking lunges
   Kettlebell swings
   Box jumps

We did this workout on January 29th, so I looked it up on my blog.  It took me 31:35 to complete, using 24 lbs for push press, 15.5 lbs for kettle-bell swings, 4 lbs for wall ball, and I did knees-to-elbows on the floor.  I'll use the same amount of weights again today, but I will do the knees-to-elbows on the bar instead of the floor.  Gosh, let's hope this turns out okay!  Last Tuesday was the last time I worked out!
So...I got my workout done early because I'm hoping to head to Katy's house to visit my beautiful granddaughter after the wheelchair guy leaves.  I figured I go ahead and do it, since this is a kind-of planned but not planned event!  lol  I have to say...wow...so depressing!  My time totally sucked compared to last time - 1/29/13 time of 31:35; today's time 35:41.  Four (4!!!) whole minutes worse!  I will admit I was hoping Honey-Buns would come knocking on the door telling me wheelchair guy came early just so I wouldn't have to do those box jumps at the end!  MAN!  I've really got to get back with it - let this be a lesson to y'all.  Don't stop working out or you'll suck again just like me!!  Oh well...looks like I'm back on this horse!  Giddy-up!!!
