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!

Okay here we go- This is how Sept went

September goals

1. First and most important is getting everything in order so I can start my second certification and a couple courses. I want to get my ACE Health Coach certification, take a Nutrition/Weight Management course and Sports Performance course. By October I want to be working on these!

Okay- One goal met- Check! Everything is in Order, I’ve recived my books and I’m working on getting my certifications!

2. I need to get a tan for our cruise October 5th! Its a 7 day eastern Caribbean cruise. Normally Iโ€™m always tan all summer long but this summer was a little bit different with our 8 month old son. My pool time is pretty limited and the beach really hasnโ€™t happened this year.

This did not happen! LOL but I did get tan on the cruise! IMG_0508

3. To drink water, water and more water. At least 4 full East Cooper cups a day of water. My East Cooper cup is the one I got at the hospital when I had Bryden and it is 28oz. So that should be a pretty good amount of water.

2nd goal met! Check! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think some days I far exceeded this amount! I feel so much better when I’m drinking enough water!

4. To do crossfit at least four days a week if not five days.

3rd goal met! My husband I have been doing it five days a week and right before vacation six days. Six days was a tad much and our bodies were very happy they got a nice break! 004

5. Move to the blue band for pull ups!

I’m not sure I think I might be there I haven’t attempted it sence we have been back. I’ll try the next time we do pull ups! I know when I used the green band yesterday it was really really easy. So hopefully that’s a good sign! 52e26a99b6f7040b9f0608613b6dd175

6. Work on my handstands! (I need to have them good for the cruise! I need pictures at all the different beaches donโ€™t I?)

Improved them but still want to keep improving and move up to walking! Got lots of good handstand pics on the cruise! IMG_0263

7. Really get back into my meal planning. Last week went really good so now I just have to keep it up and not slack! We feel so much better when we cook at home and we try all different healthy meals. Eating healthy doesnโ€™t have to be boring or taste horrible! And we save so much money when I meal plan. I plan a week of meals go to the store once and thatโ€™s it for the week. No random store trips. Saves a ton and I mean a ton of money! When does anyone ever go in the store for one thing and come out with only that one thing? I know we NEVER do!

Well this didn’t happen I was to concerned with the vacation to really concentrate on doing this. But now I’m in full meal planning/Coupons/Saving money mode! Need to save for our next Cruise! 452408b7976203560dc6c4a11144bcc9

Sense October is almost over I’m going to wait till November and do a list of November goals!!! Who wants to do this with me?!?! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think it’s a great way to work harder on sticking to them!

Welcome to September! September is always an exciting time. Thereโ€™s the back-to-school excitement, the slightest hint of cooler weather, and football season. Pumpkin also tends to make an appearance (already!! give me pumpkin everryyyyything) and of course looing forward to the upcoming holidays.

I got a great idea from a fellow blogger to share my September goals on here. Its pretty simple really. Share your goals for greater accountability. Makes sense right? So here we go! I guess we will see in October if this concept worked out for me or not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay I think that’s a pretty good list for September! Fingers Crossed!
