Weekend recap/Monday check in:
Snapped this pic of P after he’d gotten done mowing the yard. He was too cute not to paparazzi stalk!
Awesome colorful apartments/condos being built down the street. I’m loving the colors!
Rearranged our dresser situation.
Watched fireworks from the porch on Saturday night.
Took a boat tour of our city on an old military truck/boat called a Duck, thus P’s duck caller thing. Haha
Got another PR on my max squat today! Whew! It was tough, but I’m looking forward to building it up even more and reaching my goal (1.5x my body weight)! I think we are about to start another squat program, so I’m excited!
Do you pee during Crossfit? lol
Box jumps and double unders= recipeeee for disaster. hahahaha I made a punny.
Yesterday sucked. I won’t get into details, but trust me.
Today has proven to be much better and productive!
Got up this morning and did a lil Fight Gone Bad. http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/004588.html.
It was my first time doing that WOD, and man it was killer. And I sucked.
Granted I gave it no thought or strategy…just got out there and tried to keep moving, but still. It’s a good benchmark to start from and track progress. I did 179 reps. Next time I’ll go all out on round one to get my reps up. No point in saving my energy for round 2 or 3 cause I’ll be tired as shit either way. So there’s my strategy next time.
Also we put an offer in on a house!!! So excited, but tryin not to get my hopes up yet. But it has great potential and tons of character. Eeeek!!! We should find out the verdict tues or wed.
Now we need to clean and get groceries but that’s no fun. Seeing Superman tonight !
My heart is heavy tonight.
We just found out that some amazing people we go to church with have been given a stage 4 liver cancer diagnosis.
Her name is Amanda. She just finished battling breast cancer.
So much cancer these days.
She’s my age.
She has a 2 year old.
Lift her up in your prayers if you pray.

Nails- Why is this pic so crappy? I dunno. Bohemian Summer via Urban Outfitters. Really great polish actually! Took 3 thin coats and didn’t take forever to dry. I usually do my nails on my lunch break, so I love a quick dry!
I’ve been thinking about things I am working on, and what better way to hold myself accountable than to type it out and post it somewhere!
In no particular order:
1. Spend less money on quick trends. More money on quality pieces that last forever.
2. Spend less time working, and more time with my husband and my friends and family. We’ve cut back on our photography biz bc it was taking over our lives.
3. Spend more time taking care of myself. I only get this one body, and I can’t run it ragged all the time. More sleep. More yoga. More down time.
4. Do the best I can. As a wife. At my job. At Crossfit. And don’t beat myself up over what I can’t do. Focus on what I can do.
5. Care less. Care less about petty people with petty issues and petty comments.
6. Spend less time on my phone/computer in the evenings.
What are you guys currently working on?
I did end up buying the Anthropologie dress, and it did fit!
I got tons of compliments on it when I wore it around for a work event in Chicago earlier this week. (Thus the hotel room photos.) Random people stopped me on the street to ask about it!
Anthro for the win! I’ll def be keeping an eye out for other items by this designer… when they go on sale! haha
This weekend with my love.
I adore him.
I got my eyebrows threaded today! Makes a big difference when someone actually shapes them!
I also got my hair done and got a pedicure. I feel like a new woman!
