Happy Monday morning everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ We are on our final cruise countdown! In three days we drive to Orlando, and six day’s we get on our boat and sail away! How was y’alls weekend? Ours was good. We did our normal Saturday Crossfit and then our Sunday rest day. We walked over to trail we live close to and checked it out. We have been waiting for cooler weather and less bugs! Yesterday was perfect out! It is finally fall! I think. lol I also made some cookies (recipe is getting posted today)IMG_0180 and a chicken almost stew like dinner (also getting posted today)IMG_0202 and I worked pretty hard getting my ReebokOne account up and going so y’all can get 10 percent discount anytime you want to order from Reebok! ๐Ÿ™‚ Now there are a few things excluded but for the most part most is included. I still have a few things to figure out but I’ll have it under my Link’s tab as soon as its good to go with instructions how to use it. d7fd09e3333d2477a81f1332e90b03c8
And now on to today’s WOD. We only have 4 more days of crossfit and then our 2 week break starts! I’m kinda nervous about it! We are doing it on the cruise at St.Thomas and we want to check out a box in Orlando to but It’s still not going to be our normal training time. :/ So I guess we’ll see how it goes!

Today’s WOD was great! And to really top it off a few of us finished strong to the song “Roxanne”. My husband was glad no guys jumped in because that was his excuse for not doing it. It was a girl thing. lol.

Well I don’t know if I would go to that extreme but I really don’t know how to explain the feeling of doing something you couldn’t come close to doing a few months ago! It’s the best natural high! I did my first Toes2bar today! So far I’ve had to do knees to elbows every time toes2bar was in the WOD. I know its such a small thing I tackled but its a big deal to me. Now I can’t wait for the next workout with toes to bar in it! I still don’t know how many I’ll be able to do but at least I’ll be able to do a few!

“”If the aforementioned workout is a light cup of coffee that slowly wakes you up, CrossFit is a shot of five-hour energy.” โ€“Dave Golokhov

Morning everyone! I’m excited about today’s WOD. Cleans and Double Unders! Of course take note that if you can not do 25 DUBS then you have to do 100 singles. They really want us to get our DUBS! lol. But we finally have our new ropes for this one and I’ve got some practice in so hopefully I can knock out a couple of rounds before switching to singles. Fingers Crossed! My husband and I are attempting to make a homemade pizza tonight, I’m pretty excited about that I hope it turns out good! And of course if it does I’ll share it with y’all!
