CrossFit Weekend + Fitness Recap

Happy Sunday Evening Loves! I haven't been here since Thursday - it was a FUN busy weekend!! Friday was good at school - I wore pants to work (first time since I broke my ankle). I told ya'll about my ankle last week and how swollen it was so I wanted to make sure that Friday it was up even at school. So, if you see in the picture, that is how I taught the majority of my lesson. Then I got into my rolly chair and rolled to help the students and make sure they knew what they were doing. I did fall twice at school.  It's been over three weeks, and I had not fallen yet; however, Friday I feel once in the cafeteria and once in the hall upstairs. We shall see what happens tomorrow.  It's Spirit Week at school, so I am excited to see all the munchkins in their fun stuff.  Should be a good week!

 After school, Chris took me to the box. I did the workout to the right.  It was a good WOD.  I used 10, 15, 20 and 25# DBs for the arms. I only used the 25# DB for pullovers and 10 of the 15 hammer curls.  I was just trying to push it as hard as I could.  I had to use the 10# DBs for the lateral and front raises.  Not sure why I can't do anymore then it. I am LOVING all the working on the pull-ups. I am getting better at them.
After I got my WOD on, Tara came to the box and picked me up.  She was going to cut my hair for me. She forgot her scissors so she took me back to her work - Hello Gorgeous. Between her and AC hooking me up -- my hair is looking FABULOUS! It's the first time I've cut it since last May when I donated it to Locks of Love.  I am LOVING my hair!  While she was fixing me up - was talked about the competition on Saturday she was competing in (which I was suppose to be competing in).  It was her first one so I was STOKED for her. I did my first comp back in January.  I had a blast, so I just wanted her to have a blast too! After she cut my hair, I went back and got ready.  I went and had a drink with Chris and T. (side note - I stopped my Whole30 already, had a MELT DOWN Thursday night about my ankle and school stress and so forth - more on that tomorrow). It was a good night!

I slept in Saturday, which was fabulous. I spent an hour talking to DA, which is always like an added bonus because we don't get to talk that often. Plus getting to start my day talking to him means it will be a fabulous day! I'm a nerd, I know :) Alycia came, picked me up and took me to the box. I caught a ride with her, Justin and Ryan to Philly for the competition.  AC came for a little bit too!! A couple people competed - Nick, Tara, Brooke, Ron, Jake, Dan and I know I am missing two or three more. It was a good day -- they all did well.  After the competition was done some of us went to Percy Street Barbecue for food and drinks. It was a good time. I love how much we all enjoy cheering each other on. It is so awesome! We have such a fabulous group of folks -- I love it! It was a LONG day for me and I was exhausted by the evening.  Chris drove me home. I laid on my couch and did nothing. AC came over and we had some drinks -- after the Phillies game, Nick and Allie came over too. I was glad to have some company, and not to have to leave the apartment.  My arms were SHOT haha.



Today I went to Open Gym. Guess what I wore - capris!! I got them over my foot :) Woot Woot! I was beyond happy about this.  I had an original plan for my WOD today, but it got changed up some.  I started with a row. I worked on my pull-ups.  I even did some with JUST the orange band. It was awesome.  I still can't believe I did it. Lots of hard work, but I am happy!
