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! πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜‰ The last picture was one of the days we were watching the crossfit games! πŸ˜€ 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! πŸ˜€

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!!!! πŸ˜€ 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! πŸ˜€ 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! πŸ˜€ I hope y’all had a great summer also!

Okay So I am Brand New to this and not very computer Savvy! But lets get this started! I wanted to start this blog to inspire people to work towards their fitness goals and Crush them! πŸ™‚ Me and my husband are very much into fitness and nutrition. I think we may drive our parents a little crazy being on them all the time to eat right and workout. But its just b/c we love them! I guess I’ll start with a little back ground on me and my family. My husbands name is Brian and he is the most amazing husband ever. And I know a lot of ppl may say that. But really he is the besttt. I don’t know how I got so lucky to have found him. He’s definitely got his hands full with me! lol. My husband is in the air force so we have seen the world thanks to them. We lived in Germany for 3 years and did a lot of traveling. We went to France, Belgium, Amsterdam, Munich, Italy, and Spain. While we did have a great time there we were definitely ready to move back to the states. We had some major Wal-Mart and Target withdrawals going on! We now live in Charleston SC . Its very pretty here and historic and only 6ish hours from all of our family in Orlando. ( That is the main goal of getting back to Florida ) We just had a Amazing Baby boy in December Bryden Cruz Hendrix. He is Amazingggg the best thing ever. Me and my Husband finally figured out what direction we also want our lives to head. Big Grown up Decisions were made this past year. My Husband is working towards his bachelor’s degree in Exercise science and I just got certified as a personal trainer (ACE) and want to work on a degree in nutrition and work on becoming a level one crossfit instructor. Our overall goal is to open our own gym. And I know we will do it. We make a great team. Lets see a few other Random things about us.. I also Coupon, ( Brian also helps with that! ) We love the beach, pool, lake really any way to be outdoors and active ( Even tho Im very guilty of just passing out in the sun also πŸ™‚ ) We love to travel. We have been on hand full of cruises and even have one coming up in October! And I would say the only other major thing is our love for music. We have been to so many concerts and shows I couldnt even start to name all the bands we have seen. But I can say AX7 is one of our more fav. ones along with Tool, RiseAgainst and Korn.
