Hello! Happy Friday! :mrgreen:

I saw this fun fitness survey on Katie’s blog awhile back and thought it looked like a good one, especially for a Friday, so here goes!

1. Five fitness items I can’t live without:

2. Favorite pre-workout snack/meal:

For me, it depends on the workout, but it almost always includes nut butter and banana, which keeps me satisfied and doesn’t upset my stomach. Some of my favorites:


3. On my fitness bucket list:

I have all sorts of stuff on my Fitness Bucket List, but the ones I’m trying to tackle in the next 3-6 months or so are Fran Rx, surfing, and PR-ing at my next half marathon.

4. Must-have tech tools:

My iPhone + Timex GPS Watch. I can’t run without them!

5. Top exercise gear:

I think I already covered this one in the first question, but I’ll mention my Reebok Play Dry Jacket since I’ve been living in it lately. I wear it to CrossFit all the time as well as around the house and to run errands. I love it.


6. Motivational mantra:

I love, love, love motivational mantras! In fact, I have 140 of them pinned to my Fitness Inspiration board on Pinterest. Here are a few of my new favorites:




7. Next big exercise goal:

Fran Rx! I’m pretty sure it’ll kill me, but I will be so frickin’ happy when I finish. I still remember writing it on the goal board at our box about a year ago. I thought it was the most impossible goal ever, but now it’s within reach.


8. Favorite cardio exercise:

CrossFit and running! Obviously.

9. Favorite strength move:

There are so many I love. My favorites: Cleans, Jerks, Thrusters, Deadlifts”¦ pretty much anything that makes me feel like a beast!

CrossFit WOD Book Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway to win a Reebok CrossFit WOD Book! Here are your winners:


I LOVE fight gone bad! Such a great way to kick my one trash ;) .


I just started crossfit last week so this would be an awesome way to track my workouts from the start! So far I’d say the baseline is my favorite since that’s what I’m working to beat in my first month :)


Hello from Central NJ! I joined Crossfit in October 2011 and never looked back. Now almost six months pregnant with my first I know WODing 3-4 times a week is a huge reason why things are going so smoothly. Can’t wait to get back to HSPUs and burpees next summer! ;)
