Hello all my amazing blog followers! I’m so sorry for my slacking starting even before summer! We (as a family) have just had so much stuff going on. I don’t see it slowing down alot for the next 6 month but it has slowed up some so here I am. And hopefully no more slacking from me!

So lets see. We have alot of catching up to do. Let me try to make it short & sweet for y’all. I don’t want to bore you with my first blog back! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are a few updated pics of our new home Garage gym. We have added a couple new wall balls, a new kbell, and a rower. I think we are pretty well set for now. We love our gym. We basically only workout at home now other then when we are in Florida and then we go to Crossfit OCD.




We have been training pretty hard all summer. The only downside to doing all our workout’s at home is the heat. Our old box on base was air conditioned and for a box that is rare. So lucky them all summer. lol But I did look up the benefits to training in heat and humidity and there are some major benefits. So I’m really looking forward to fall to see how it helped out overall. (I’ll Post a different blog with information on training the heat) And we never worked out in the prime of the heat and sun. Well I can not say never but rarely. Most were done around 7 so it was normally down in the mid 90’s instead of 100 plus. Plus no direct sun.

Here are a few of my fav pictures from the summer















Our summer consisted of alot of handstand pictures and pistols pretty much anywhere we went. lol Yes we are those people. And we are okay with it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The last picture was one of the days we were watching the crossfit games! ๐Ÿ˜€ First time I was in cute crossfit stuff looking cute and fresh! I was pretty excited b/c we had ESPN 3 on our Xbox360 so I was able to enjoy ALLLLLLL Every second of the crossfit games! Now because our son was 18 months at the time it took us a little bit longer then it should have and we had to avoid getting on facebook to make sure we didn’t find anything out but It was worth it! We had so much fun watching everything and cheering everyone on and I was very happy with the outcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay lets see what other things happened? I passed my Health Coach test! So I am now a certified personal trainer with ACE and Health coach and hopefully very soon I’ll have my level one for Crossfit!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ My husband and I going to try to get it this fall or Christmas time frame. We have to get it before February next year because we also found out he will be leaving for a year deployment to Korea. After Korea he will be separating from the airforce and joining the guard or reserve and hopefully with in the next 1-2 years we will have our own box opened somewhere in the central Florida area! We also are wanting to get our Level 2 when he gets back from Korea so we can open our Gym with both having our Level 2’s. Fingers crossed everything will workout. But no worries I will keep y’all updated on everything! Like I said no more slacking from this girl!


Oh I also really kicked my butt into gear with eating right. I went and did the bod pod in June and was pretty disappointed with what happened. Pretty much when the lady went over my results she pulled out the 1 pound of muscle and 1 pound of fat to show me what both look like. Now she had no clue that I already knew that and a ton more. So I let her go over it all. And basically it was sad that for how I was busting my butt what my body fat was at. Higher then it had been most likely ever in my life even though I was working out so much harder then I ever had. I had gained 9 lbs of muscle so that was a plus but it was a wake up call that I needed to start eating right. Eating right is key. Just because you bust your butt everyday it does not give you the right to eat whatever you want and put bad stuff in your body. The right food is key to a happy healthy body. Well after I left that was it I really committed to eating right and cutting drastically back on my wine. And you know what? It worked. I Confused and Amazed not only the lady who did my test yesterday but the other lady who did my test 3 months ago. My results were great and apparently something they do not see happen very often. It was a very dramatic difference. I’m now at a lower body fat then I have ever been even when I only weighed 126 and I now weigh 135! ๐Ÿ˜€ I still have some more bad body fat to lose mainly in my tummy from having a baby. But I’m okay with that. I left super happy!



Well I think the only think I have left to share is a few of my fav. non crossfit pictures from summer. Sorry again for my slacking ways! Wods, Recipes and daily wods are back in full gear! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope y’all had a great summer also!














Okay this is not Crossfit related once so ever but I have to share this with all you! My son is soooooo cute and I’m one proud momma! Every time this song comes on he just breaks it down and sings along! ๐Ÿ™‚



Okay so my son’s birthday was yesterday and I wanted to try to get lots of cute pictures of him of course. It was just my Husband, Me and his Aunt Sara. So nothing big but we had a ton of fun! He’s going to get a round 2 when we go to Orlando in a couple of weeks with the grandparents! Lucky baby! But anyways. On to the pictures. I saw this idea on pinterest to fill the crib with balloons and the picture of the baby on pinterest was so cute! He was so happy! Now Bryden is always happy so I figured yay this would be perfect! NOPE this was one of those “Failed” Pinterest Pictures! LOL He was scared to death of the balloons! But we did get a million other really cute pictures and it was the first time Pinterest has failed me so I forgive it! lol We had to take yesterday off from the gym but we are going to do a Sunday Fun day WOD today. We still don’t know what it is. But it will be good. And it will be hard. Oh I also did before crossfit and after crossfit pictures on my facebook page if anyone wants to check them out! I was really happy yesterday after doing it b/c I didn’t relize the progress I have made! That link should bring you right to it! And feel free to like my fbook page also! I post some different stuff on there.

My best friend (Bryden’s Aunt Sara) shared this information with me (I cant believe she saw it before me! lol) but its really interesting and I love it! Crossfit for kids is such a great program and this makes me love it even more.

CrossFitโ€™s partnership with Infant Swimming Resource gives very young children the skills to avoid drowning.

It was one of his first calls as a police officer: a female child underwater.

When first responders arrived, they determined it was too late. They couldn’t save her. So the officer, who later became the chief of the Miami Police Department, reached down into the water and held the babyโ€™s lifeless hand until her little body was pulled out.

Sharing the story reduced the man to tears.

When Greg Glassman retold it, it wasn’t much different. Watery eyes. Red face. Broken voice.

โ€œItโ€™s the worst thing that can happen to people,โ€ Glassman said.

The Founder and CEO of CrossFit Inc. is the father of five. Via a partnership with Infant Swimming Resource, CrossFit Inc. hopes to prevent such tragedies.

On the night of Sept. 20, Glassman and CrossFit HQ employees were among those at Hotel Paradox in Santa Cruz, Calif., to witness one womanโ€™s efforts in teaching local children how to save themselves when they fall in water.
