Photos from Saturday (aka “A Super Fast Recap”)

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! Mal and Murphy are waiting for me to go to the dog park with them so we can do a “nature walk” in the woods, so I need to make this post quick. Here’s a super fast recap of Saturday!

At CrossFit yesterday morning, we got to pick partners for the WOD, so Mal and I teamed up. It was our very first husband-wife WOD together and we crushed it! (And we’re both insanely sore today!)

001 (750x563)


“781 Mile”

With a partner, for time:

100 Curtis P’s
1 Mile Medball Run

RX: (115, 85) (20)
L2: (95, 65) (14)
L1: (75, 55) (10)
Beg: (65, 35) (10)

1 Curtis P = Power Clean + Front Lunge each leg + Push Press


Yesterday’s 24 Days of Togetherness was “drink eggnog,” so I did just that.


Mal and I spent the rest of the afternoon and early evening hanging out with his sister and her husband in Boston.


I ordered an Original Sin Hard Cider at lunch. It was tasty!


We walked all over Boston and did a little shopping on Newbury Street.



Mal bought me a pair of (raw) jeans as an early Christmas present. Have you heard about raw denim? It’s so cool. Mal owns a couple of pairs of raw demin jeans and absolutely loves them, so I’m excited to see what they’re all about.

G-Star RAW

My day concluded with the following: PJs on the couch, watching “TED” with Mal and Murphy, and eating an egg sandwich on a Microwavable English Muffin. It was a fabulous Saturday night!


How was your Saturday?



  1. I love that you and Mal work out together and have CrossFit as a hobby. I’ve gotten really into fitness this year, but unfortunately my boyfriend hasn’t caught the bug (yet). I’m hoping he gets inspired in the new year because it’s great to have a partner in exercise!

    My Saturday consisted of the Knicks game and speed work on the treadmill. If the Knicks had won it would have been perfect 🙂

  2. Oooh love the jeans!
    I got to volunteer at a trail race and it was pretty cold, but at least not rainy. Being out there with the racers for five hours made me want to sign up for a trail race, too.

  3. My sat was awesome! Had a good workout in the morning. We spent the evening downtown with friends eating great seafood and went to fountain square and got our picture with the big Christmas tree!

      1. @Tina: i’m sure they warned you… but DON’T WASH THEM! i bought a pair of g-stars and loooooved them but both knees wore out and became gaping holes within a year. they warned me not to wash them… you’re supposed to put them in the freezer when they smell bad… that just grossed me out so i hand washed them and sure enough… holes 🙁

      1. on more question… i crossfit too! and my thighs are having a hard time fitting in pants these days! do you have this problem? i’m at a loss!

  4. My Saturday started with a barre class and then I worked for much of the day. And by work I mean demoing our Health Warrior Chia Bars at Whole Foods which I love since I get to talk to real people about chia and nutrition. The rest of the day included reading, dinner and a movie. Love those kinds of Saturdays!

    I’ve never heard of raw denim but just looked it up. Sounds interesting. I wonder which one you’ll prefer!

  5. Nice post. I’ve never heard of raw denim jeans, but then again I haven’t done a lot of clothing shopping in awhile. I’ll have to check them out 🙂 I’ve been having a really good December by the way and while not as exciting as your’s i’m pretty happy as well.

  6. raw denim is the BEST!! were all your pants too big or too small due to your cross fit? you look awesome, by the way! love that you and mal finally got to be partners 🙂 what did you order for lunch?! hopefully not just beer!

  7. Love the jeans! I have had the hardest time with jeans since doing crossfit regularly. Everything I had is to small for my legs now but when I get a pair of jeans that fit my legs the waist is to big! Have you had that problem? If so, any jean recommendations?? 🙂

  8. My Saturday was a pretty lazy one. With the exception of going to the gym, I pretty much stayed in my apartment sprawled on the couch in my pajamas all day. It’s the last weekend before my classes are over for the semester, so my roommates and I all got a little lazy before we have to study for finals 🙂

  9. we’re raw denim fans over here. nate has some naked and famous ones but i’ve had my eyes on some nudie or chimala denim. just not sure if i’m ready to commit 😉 they look great! i think skinny jeans are on the way out! i do love my j brand ones though, the maria high rise ones are super flattering!

  10. Aw, I love Newbury St. Usually just window shopping for me though! The jeans are cute. It’s interesting that you’ve gotten smaller from CF and your pants don’t fit. Typically I see people building muscle mass from CF especially in their quads! I guess everyone’s body just responds differently.

  11. I love making the english muffin! What makes the brown speckles in yours? Mine comes out kind of light yellow…

  12. I think all men from Boston are obligated to love “Ted”. Lol. My bf and I watched it while we were in Nantucket this past summer (while one too many martinis deep, haha). We’ll be back in Boston in a week! I can’t wait to be back on the “right coast” 🙂

    p.s. did you go ice skating?

  13. Ah, these posts are making me so homesick for Boston! BTW, I managed to try the Angry Orchard hard cider this weekend, thanks to your rec. Super awesome!

  14. I love reading all these comments and hearing that others have had problems finding jeans to fit them. Since I started lifting heavy I’ve had a hard time finding jeans that fit my waist and thighs. I have gained quite a bit of muscle in my thighs and it has made it for a tight fit (or no fit at all…) in all my jeans that fit my waist, otherwise the waist is just too big. So glad I’m not the only one!
