11,610 pounds lifted this morning…I must be insane

crossfit1I have a love hate realationship with CRossFit! As I lay in bed, and the alarm goes off my mind becomes very sharp at decifering why I should just sleep in. I have learned over the last 8 months doing crossfit – that I never regret getting up and going, but I always regret for the most part when I don’t!

This morning was a stuggle to get my fat butt outa bed, and I am so glad I did! Okay and look bleow at what Cricket did! wow. I swear I am gonna make a t-shirt with my cricut machine and wear it into the gym. With a cricket on it. She is badass strong!! Wow.  and yes- errrr…. Those are my hands! real feminine aren’t they? Nope but they are strong.


AMRAP (crossfit talk for “As Many Reps As Possible) in 30 minutes.


My deadlift max is 150lbs, I did 135lbs this morning.

For a total of 86 reps THUS the 11,610 lbs!

I guess my flight to El Paso this morning will seem easy, since I have lift 11,000 pounds before 6am!!


On another note: I need some long socks!!! cause even crossfit can make me shop! and notice how crossfit is leading me to craft? I am making a t-shirt?

My new realization about myself anything can make me shop or craft!!!

Did I tell you I started Crossfit?- very humbling…

June 29th, 2014 – I started on this crazy and amazing journey. (you will see posts on my instragram feed).

Let me back up a little, in March of 2014 I lost my dad. After losing him I struggled to get my life back on track. I never realized what an impact our “little conversations” had on me. He had grown into such a cheerleader for me in my life.
Through depression bouts and moments of self doubt I embarked on a journey to try to be my best self.  As “cheesy” as that phrase can be “my best self”. I really thought to myself I am not getting any younger, what if I challenged myself to get in the best shape of my life?
That lead me to facing the fact that I needed to start making my physical and mental health a priority.   I didn’t realize until my first few sessions how much strength, functionality and agility I had lost. Let me just say–It was a very humbling experience. Not being able to get up off the floor quickly or without alot of effort. very humbling. In my mind, I still feel as if I am in my early 20’s, and assumed my body was the same.


 I have to say that I am like many crossfitters, and was very passionate about my workouts and discussed it often. (insert- me in Joey from Friends picture). I am so excited to discuss and share my progress. You do not have to do crossfit. You just have to move and work out! For me I am on a journey to do my best effort and become in the best shape possible. For the challenge, for my well being…What do you do to stay in shape?
