Christmas is almost here..

Hi lovely readers. I apologize for the large stretches between posts..I am trying to get better about blogging regularly. It’s such a busy time of year …but no EXCUSES 🙂

People are really starting to notice the changes in my body since crossfit. I am thrilled! I remember the last time I lost significant amount of weight feeling embarrassed that people noticed I kind of felt like if they said I looked great now, how did I look before? It’s different this time. I know I’ve worked harder than I ever have at this getting fit thing..and maybe that’s the difference? Maybe it’s that I’m 7 years older? Idk but I am happy I am in a place where I can accept the praise for what it is, praise. Here’s a photo I did on Instragram..


I think it’s actually more dramatic than the photo..but it does a decent job. The biggest change has been through my stomach! THANK GOD for that because boy did I need it 🙂

I’m working hard on my short term goals..although I failed at the eating paleo through Christmas eve. I hope to start fresh in January when that’s more maintainable. I am SO close to getting toes to cross your fingers for me..


I hope you all enjoy these last few days going into Christmas. Enjoy your time off, hug your family and friends tight. XOXO




Goal Setting

December 8, 2012 § 3 Comments

I realized this week that I have been doing Crossfit now for just over 4 months. It’s crazy how fast this time has flown by. Even crazier are the changes I am already seeing in my body. Crossfit has become a great outlet and community for me. As much as I love my 3-4 times a week in the box and monitoring my progress through PR’s and time tracking etc I have felt like I am missing something.

After some soul searching it seems that missing thing is goals! So in an effort to hold myself accountable to these goals I have decided the blog is a good way to track them. Short and long term..

Short term:

1)Do 14 days strict paleo w. out fruit going into the holidays! Beginning Monday 12- ending on Christas Eve 🙂 (I hope to drop 5-7lbs during this phase)

2)Before January 1 get a kipping toes to bar! Even if it’s one rep 🙂

3) Introduce 1 day of running only per week.

Long Term:

1) strict toes to bar

2) strict pull up

3) increase strenght in overhead movements, OHS and snatch specifically

4) achieve a free standing handstand

4) increase my running capability! run a sub 30 5k in 2013!!

Here’s to it!!!!!!!! One of my bff’s and I are doing a 5k tomorrow..I’m so excited!! Who knew i’d sneak back into running. 🙂 *my running is a FOR NOW anways


Everybody have a lovely weekend.

Where Am I?
