I'm Back - LONG Week Off

Hello loves...I've been MIA since I went to California. I am trying to process life as well as I can.  Right now I'm stressed beyond belief.  Trying to find what makes me happy as well as trying to find a job and figure out what to do with the whole DA thing.  Funny how life works....when it rains it pours. I'm trying to focus on what I want for my life and I know it might make some people mad, but I have to do what I have to do.  Mama Dukes did a good job with me - I'm a smart girl with a good head on my shoulders.  I have faith it will all work out - in HIS plan! :) So I won't blog a TON but I'll share pictures with you....
Pinkberry at the Philly Airport en route to DA - I made a 90 year old friend - she forgot her money so I treated her to some Pinkberry -- she was super cute and I hope if my Oma is ever in an airport and needs something that there is someone to hook her up too :)

DA & I at Sunset Terrace - one of his favorite places in Thousand Oak
Wine, comfy clothes, couch, basketball playoffs & DA - perfect Saturday night
Sunday play date at Santa Monica Pier
Then we just sat and talked and got to stare at this :)
Tabata handstand holds during after school program with a student
Justin & Alycia talking to over 100 people from my box....
25 day challenge - Paleo eating, lots of sleep, WODs + rest days, mobility work - just getting healthier
Last Friday morning of PT - hopefully two more weeks -- still need a lot of ankle mobility
Track meet with my students in BLISTERING heat last Friday
Happy Hour with the work crew Friday afternoon
Xfinity Live with the original Jersey crew
Trying to bike or row 30 mins a day this month - so got on the trainer Saturday night and watched "Trouble with the Curve"

Sunday morning was started outside with sunshine & 2500m fun -- 500m sprints with a min recovery
Sunday afternoon I took the girls to the beach to play with Bobby -- then had a BBQ at the box to kick off our challenge!!
Now I am waiting to talk to DA today -- hopefully figure some stuff out.  Put out a bunch of applications so far, so fingers crossed for that! I'll be back to normal blogging this week AND I am officially changing the name to Lifting Love -- working on finding someone to help design it -- if you know anyone, let me know :)



  1. Holy moly! I have been thinking of you for the last week and here you are!!!! Life has thrown you some curveballs I see. Im sure you'll land in your feet! How is the ankle rehab coming along?

    1. Hi friend :) The ankle is doing pretty well. Still some issues, but it's coming along! Ready to be running and back at CrossFit 100% :)

  2. looks like you had a busy week! how is eating paleo going for you? i feel so much better when i eat paleo but its a tough diet to stick to.

    1. I agree - I feel SO much better when I eat Paleo, but sometimes it is SO hard to follow and I just want some ice cream! haha

  3. Welcome back! How sweet of you to buy ice cream for your friend! Everything will work out my friend, Hang tight!

    1. Girl I hope so =/ Fingers Crossed!

  4. I just finished redesigning my blog! I haven't announced it yet but it's been done for a few days now. I can give you the name and email address of the girl that did mine if you want! I just had her customize a theme for me. I didn't have the patience to do it myself and I wanted to make sure it coordinated withy new header & logo.
