Hey guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was good... Friday night, we went to bed early in anticipation for Saturday morning crossfit and boy was it a doozy! We weren't expecting the workout to be as hard as it was; after all, it's only 5 minutes of "work" at a time, but hear my when I say: Oh my god Crossfit, you are crazy! Here's what we did:
4 Rounds (1 minute at each station and 1-minute rest between each round):
- Kettlebell Swings
- Box Jumps
- Hand-release push-ups
- Overhead squats
- Double Unders
When I first read the workout, I thought there was 1-minute breaks between stations, but there weren't. You actually go from one right into the other and it was tough! I also thought throwing the kettlebell weight overhead, while you're heart is still recovering from the jump rough was tough. REAL tough.
That same kettlebell jacked up my hand pretty good. I used a little chalk because my hands were slipping off the bell by the third round... and even though I'd heard chalk will do this to you, I wasn't expecting it to happen to me! Funny thing: I didn't notice it until we were in the car heading home.
And it hurt a lot more than I expected through the weekend! I've been whinning about it quite a bit!
(Amazing I can do this intense workout, but a little boo-boo on the hand kills me!)
Alright, so anyway, sorry for the big disgusting photo... let's move on to happier, prettier things, shall we?
Like cake pops!
I went to a fancy birthday party Saturday and they served these - OMG! So good! I'd never had one before!
New favorite dessert for sure!
Sunday I went grocery shopping with my friend Vanessa.
We started at Costco which probably wasn't the best idea - it wore us out completely!
Then we headed to Target and got pretty punchy!
In the photo above, Vanessa's reaching for the last few Justin Maple Almond Butters!
You guys might have seen on Instagram that I hired a personal shopper...
Before you get all judge-y, just know that I hate shopping! I'm extremely cheap when it comes to clothes and I hardly ever buy them. As a result, my wardrobe is severly lacking and I get pretty overwhelmed anytime I try shopping (thinking about everything I need!) So anyway, my friend Kim is helping me and you'll meet her very soon! I'm going to talk A LOT more about this in August, but I thought I'd give you a sneak peek of a few of my new pieces! I love them!
What did you do this weekend?
