    So, last week was the week that I finally (really and truly) scaled back at CrossFit. Up until now, I’ve pretty much been able to stick to my usual workouts with a few exercise modifications here and there, but now I am really feeling pregnant, especially now that I am officially in my 3rd trimester […]


    004 (450x600)

    Woohoo! I met my goal and survived Open WOD 13.4! As I mentioned in my previous post, 95 pounds (the prescribed weight for this workout) for clean and jerk was pretty close to my 1RM, so my goal for 13.4 was to make it through the set of 12 clean and jerks and toes-to-bar. I thought 60 […]

After lunch, Murphy and I went […]

I did it right from the beginning of the workout, and it definitely proved to be a smart strategy for me. 3…2…1…GO! Photo credit: Sean Burns During 13.2, I learned […]


    Holy goodness, Open WOD 13.1 was brutal. I still can’t believe I survived it. Last night, I was invited to an “Advanced Open Preparation Class” at our box to prepare for the first workout of the CrossFit Open. The class focused on strategy and proper warm-up related to the movements, so we could get a […]


    Slow Cooker Plantains

    March 7, 2013

    Hello, hello! I’m excited to tell you guys about my breakfast this morning. It was delicious, nutritious, and incredibly easy to make. It also made a ton of leftovers, so I won’t have to make much effort with the rest of my breakfasts this week (or next). I bought a bunch of plantains at the […]
