Hello Loves! Happy Saturday friends!! Guess who's back in the Dirty Jerz? This girl! I miss my babies - a lot. Yesterday morning before I flew back I got to keep the Princess. SIL had to go into work early - so I got up with the baby. Broski had already gotten Tank up and off to school and had left for work. We had a nice little bonding time. Mama Dukes came over and hung with us too. Silly me - I must have been SO excited to get back that I told Mama my flight was at 2:30. LIED! I wasn't flying out till 3:20. It worked out ok -- getting through security was a mess. I got totally felt up in my wheelchair and my boot became an issue because of the wire for the pump. BLAH - whatever. It's over right?!? The AWESOME Nilda from my box came to pick me up from the airport. I felt bad because it was rush hour when I got in, but we actually got back into Jersey pretty fast! Woot Woot! Now my CrossFitting folks know it was the LAST week of the open -- and if you've read my post about Fridays - you know my box does the Open WODs on Fridays SO guess where I had Nilda take me?!? Yep - THE BOX!! Happy happy girl I was! It was good to just be back around the crew. A lot of people want to know why my life has changed so much in the last 6-7 months -- really, it hasn't. I've just weeded out people/things/situations that don't support me and my goals. Life is short -- and I have SO much I want to do. If you're not on board with that, then I don't have time. I'm not changing or being mean -- I'm just focusing on myself, figuring out the DA situation, healing this broken ankle and keeping my fitness/health journey going :)
Anyways - after the WOD - AC came here and we changed and decided to head to La Esperanza with the CrossFit Aspire crew. After dinner - Alycia, Justin, Jim, AC and I went to Kaminskis for a few drinks. It was a good night! Much needed after a week at home not doing to much. I was exhausted to say the least by the time I got home. I knew I was WOD'ing in the morning - which happens to be TODAY!
Started with skill work on pull-ups -- and guess what?!? I got to go down a band!! Woot Woot! I did 6x6. Then I did a mini metcon - 10 regular bicep curls, 10 hammer curls, 6 knee push-ups and 6 reverse DB fly. I got 5 or 6 rounds -- I can't remember haha. Then I did strict press - sets of 5 -- I got up to 75# -- I got 3 at 80 so I'll take it!!
After my WOD I came home and got ready then did a Costco run with Jilly. Had fun playing in the wheelchair. I need one of those bad boys. After that I just came home and relaxed on the couch. Had Elevation Burger for dinner with Allie and just chatted for a while.
PS I bought these bad boys at Costco --> DAMN -- they are amazing!! Good thing I'm starting a Whole30 on Monday -- I need this. I need to get focused again on my body. Jilly is helping me with my food -- because she loves me! I have my push-up challenge, Whole30 and as much WODs as I can :)
Are you on a Whole30/food challenge right now?
Any fun challenges you're doing?
