13.1 + Coach and Peanut's Birthday + Food Prep Sunday

Hello Loves! Hope ya'll had a FABULOUS weekend! So, we all know that last week was the first work out of the Open. 13.1 -- burpees and snatches -- I got 127 reps in the 17 minutes which is equal to 40 burpees, 30 snatches at 45#, 30 burpees and 27 snatches at 75#.  I am freaking stoked because I just wanted to get into the 75# snatches and to almost finish them is super cool.  I just got a 1RM at 80# last week. I had an awesome group cheering me on -- Allie, Erik, Alycia, Danielle, Chris, Marvin and some others from the box. After we finished - went for dinner.  There is a diner here in Cherry Hill -- and it's all local and farm fresh!
Saturday was the first day of Saturday school program.  Thankfully I really love my middle school crew.  By the time I got out of school, it was beautiful out so I took the Civic for a bath and they were running a special so I got a hand wax too! I LOVE warm weather and clean cars! By the time I got home, Mama Dukes was here. We headed out to get Peanut a birthday gift.  We went down to the Deptford Mall. I told her about how much I love the PJs she got me last time she was here, so she offered to get me another set.  I have BIG girl PJs now haha -- super nice and no snowflakes on them lol. Then I asked her if we could go to The Loft because I wanted to show her a cardigan. 
 I have really fallen in love with that store -- and clearly Mom did too because she had my try stuff on. Here is what I have noticed -- I now know why skinny girls have SO many clothes in their closets.  The smaller I get, there more fun I have shopping. I actually found shorts that fit me!! And then this happened -- I tried on this dress and I had to drop down to a 10! YES, you read that right -- a 10!!!! I cried. Literally.  I cried happy tears -- it's been a LONG road.  I started over 200 lbs and am down to 169lbs -- started at size 16 and this weekend marked the first size 10. Hopefully not that last :) Mom and I grabbed dinner at Red Robin -- lettuce wrapped burger was amazing!
After that I then headed off to celebrate my coach, Alycia's, birthday! It was really fun to hang out with all of the crew from my box outside of the box.  I've gotten to hang out with the girls at Ladies Night, but never the guys too!! I really am lucky to have found such an awesome box and such awesome people.  They help kick my ass during the week and support and cheer me on during life.  It's pretty fabulous.  I'm a lucky girl :)

Today, Sunday, was Peanut's birthday party.  I can't believe she is already 5.  She is not a little girl anymore.  It was so fun watching her with her friends and not really care about us.  I remember Austin's first birthday where it was more his friends then caring what Auntie M, Boomba or Mommy wanted haha. Oliveah won't be far behind.  Time seems to fly by, and they grow so fast.  Maybe one day I'll actually have one.  It's funny, Austin always thinks I need to get married -- if he could pick it would be John Cena or The Rock haha.  I mean heck if he could arrange that, I'm down ;)

I did my Food Prep today for the first couple of the days of the week. -- tuna fish with Paleo mayo, Brussels sprouts with garlic and onions, Southwest meatloaf from PaleOMG. I also have chicken that I'll cook up tomorrow to also have for the week.

Did you food prep this week?

  1. Congrats on the smaller size! I know what a great feeling that is. I made a batch of Tuna Quinoa Cakes from the Lean Green Bean blog, but that was it this week. I still have a freezer full of stuff from the last several weeks, so I didn't need to do too much.

  3. Hanging out with workout friends outside of working out is the BEST! I love my gym crew. The ladies that came from Crossfit here and joined the gym where I teach are really close! I still want some of that Crossfit, just got to fit it in. You and I both will be awaiting our own little one while we celebrate the ones in our family:) One day!
