Looking back on this week it feels that I am almost back in my old routine which I love. Over the summer I was super busy and lost track of my priorities a bit. I love having my plans for the week and preparing for each day the night before.

15 KBS 35#
(Alternating on the minute, PP 1st minute, KBS 2nd minute, PP 3rd, KBS 4th, etc)

Tuesday: work then dinner with friends

Wednesday: work, skipped crossfit because I had a little too much wine on Tuesday and felt exhausted all day. I was asleep by 7:30. I was that tired.

  1. Wow, well done on the workouts this week.

    And um, pumpkin pie in a cup?! HELLO!! I'm in and MUST try this!! Thanks for sharing (cool).

  2. Great workout week. We have thought about trying crossfit, do you like it? pros cons?

    1. I really enjoy crossfit. The class sizes are small so it is comparable to personal training and I work out harder than I would on my own. Workouts change every day to keep it interesting. I work out at the same time each day with the same group and we keep eachother accountable for attending. I have made some great friends. The only con I can think of is the price. I pay $150 a month for unlimited classes. My gym also offers 2 classes a week for $115 and they usually have family discounts. I hope that helps!
