XINE`s Thoughts and Loves
Saturday o Fun

20140906_092445I am going to confess that I haven’t dragged my ass out of bed on a Saturday to workout in forever. And yesterday morning I debated. But then I just threw caution to the wind, texted Haley and said “Let’s do this!”. Haley has stuff at her house, so we made up a WOD and knocked it out. Since Haley has one barbell we made a WOD of 5 clean and jerk and jump rope, 4 rounds. One person did the cleans…

Girls Week!

Late posting this–last week was girls week at the box. I was able to go 2 days. My hip was feeling better {thanks hot yoga and stretching and chiro!!} but I could still fee it in my workouts. That being said I wasn’t going heavy in my weights and I wasn’t trying to win at anything other than doing well.

Last year at this time I did this little devil at 33# and got it done in 7:10. This year…

Hot Yoga = Pool of Sweat

I am not even kidding about the title of this post. I have never done hot yoga before and the last time I did yoga was in Canada—when I lived there…and still worked for Blockbuster.

Meal Plan

After taking stock of how I have been eating and feeling, I decided this week need an inspired meal plan. I want to eat in a way that helps me get through sticky moments with my tendency to eat chocolate in the afternoon. I believe that because I CrossFit three times a week, yoga now once a week and swim twice a week, I might be eating chocolate when I really need something more to fuel my body.…

Scardy Cat

Since I have been given the go-ahead to run and jump I have been a sissy—I haven’t been trying to do double unders, as that was what hurt me in February.

30 Minutes of Hell

I went to my box yesterday and the workout was something out of a nightmare—and the worst of it?

ex canchiroStill struggling with getting to the box lately. About four weeks ago when I was doing a regular body weight squat my hip had a sharp pain go through it, like a nerve or something was triggered. I have stretched, gone to the box a little less all in an effort to help my body get through this. I went to my massage therapist and although he bruised my ass to work on the muscle and I got some…

Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Well even if I have been MIA, busy as a one armed monkey and taking a time-out from CrossFit for a week, I still managed to inspire people! Is it because I am brutally honest in my posts about how I feel about everything? Either way I was pleased as punch that Ramblings of a Babymama nominated me! She inspired me to workout {when I do, ha ha}. So thanks muffin!!

Deep Thoughts

Recently I have been doing some thinking while going through my third Whole30. When I read It Starts with Foodthey discussed the idea of food grief, and I felt like I went through a lot of that in January, but what I am coming to realize is that this food grief is happening each time I do this. I give up something I love each time I do this permanently. And I grieve. This time around I decided…

Sketch Artist Alert!

ex photography memeOla readers!! So what’s going on? Why I am such a sketch-artist for writing in here? Well! I have been doing two photography workshops at the same time plus I have been doing some photography sessions too. Every night, instead of thinking of peppy things to write here, I am on my laptop processing pictures, writing on message boards and growing in the photography realm. It’s awesome, I love it,…
