Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I’m feeling a tad exhausted this morning after completing CrossFit Open WOD 15.1 on Friday night and then running 15.1 miles yesterday for my long run. After all of that activity, I am so thankful today is a rest day. Heck yes. Rewind to Friday night Mal and I are both participating in the CrossFit Open this year. I’m honestly not sure why I signed up, considering I’m training for a marathon and…

Heyyyyyy! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low-key, but wonderful at the same time. I mostly hung out with my favorite guys and tried to get some sleep. Q is actually a rockstar when it comes to sleeping himself. I’m just an idiot and try to do a million things instead of actually sleeping when he does. At 4:00 AM on Saturday night, for instance, I was doing laundry and emptying the dishwasher. I know. I have issues. Anyway, here are…

Hello! Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was ridiculously fun””probably ones of the best I’ve had in months! Here’s a recap! SATURDAY Mal and I slept in on Saturday morning and then spectated the CrossFit 781 Internal Throwdown. It was so fun watching everyone compete, and it made me wish I had signed up! Next time for sure! There were three WODs + a final workout for the top three athletes from…

Heyyyyyyy! Happy weekend, friends! I slept for almost 12 hours last night, which is both insane and awesome, so I woke up bright and early this morning and ready to start the day. Carpe diem! Breakfast I was really hungry when I woke up, so I immediately headed to the kitchen to make breakfast, but, unfortunately, we didn’t really have any food in the house. (I’m pretty sure Mal ate a lot of take-out when…

Good morning and happy Monday! Remember my post about my crazy-busy fall? Well, it starts today! This morning, I’m off to the Hamptons where I’ll stay until Wednesday afternoon and then I’ll head to Woonsocket, Rhode Island for a two-day event until Friday afternoon. Ooooh boy, back-to-back trips! I didn’t realize this until I was planning my travel, but there’s no easy way to get from Boston to the Hamptons. I considered all sorts of…

Either I exercise too hard or my body is just old because I had an especially tough time recovering from my workouts this week. I ended up taking four rest days, which is more time off than I usually need. Even though I knew my body needed them, I still felt a little frustrated taking so many rest days this week. I’m glad I listened to my body though because, boy, I needed those rest…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! I love that my only plans for today involved CrossFit. This morning started with some competition prep at Open Gym and then I ended my afternoon by cheering on the lady beasts of CrossFit 781 at the Garage Games. All-day CrossFit! Workout After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit to practice a couple of the workouts for next week’s competition with my teammates. The first WOD (rowing + Burpees) went great, and I…

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! I don’t know where today went. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, which means I’m just sitting down to my computer now to recap yesterday’s adventures. Working late on a Friday! Lunch I couple of hours after eating breakfast, I headed out to run some errands at the Derby Street Shoppes. I love this shopping plaza because so many of my favorite stores are there, and I can usually…

Last night, I helped our CrossFit box move to a new location. Our little family has grown quite a bit over the past several months and we finally outgrew our space, so we needed a bigger home. We had about 20 members come out and help with the move last night. Team work definitely sped things up! Before we were knew it (seriously, it took like 15 minutes), the truck was all packed up and…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast kind of bombed, but it still tasted delicious. I made Plantain Pancakes with Maple Coconut Cream and Toasted Walnuts again, but I was impatient and turned up the heat too high on the stove, so my pancakes stuck to the pan and fell apart. I wasn’t about to waste food, so I put the pieces in a bowl, added some Maple Coconut Cream on top,…

Hello, hello! Yesterday was such a great day. It started out like a usual Saturday and ended with quite a nice surprise! Breakfast My morning started with breakfast, which was a French Toast Breakfast Scramble topped with Coconut Cinnamon Pears and Teddie peanut butter. And then I did a little meal planning while I drank my iced coffee. Workout After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit for a workout that involved a bunch of rope climbs,…

I feel like I haven’t written about my CrossFit workouts lately. We actually did “Fran” on Monday, which is THE benchmark workout in CrossFit, so I want to make sure I blog about it. Well, I improved my Fran time by 6 minutes!!! Woohoo! Ok, my last Fran attempt was an absolute disaster, but I still managed a faster time, so I’m happy. I used 55 pounds instead of 65 pounds for the Thrusters and went…

You may have figured out who my special guest was from Twitter or her blog, but, if not, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point yesterday. She was in town for an Operation Beautiful presentation at Northeastern University last night, so she stayed with me out in the ”˜burbs instead of at a lonely hotel in the city, and, of course, I was more than happy to have her….

Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend! Friday On Friday afternoon, Murphy and I drove to Fenway Park for the 1000 Pugs photo shoot. We arrived right on time and then met the photographer, Amanda, who spent a solid 20 minutes photographing Murphy. He was a natural. And highly motivated by food. Amanda had Murphy pose in 5 or 6 different places around Fenway Park. At one point, she got…

What better way to celebrate the end the 2012 CrossFit Games than with a PAR-TAY!?! I joined my friends from CrossFit 781 for an evening of food, fun, and dancing. The lovely ladies of 781 before dinner: me, Kim, Kayla, and Dani. My friends’ hotel was right near a Cheesecake Factory, so we headed there for dinner. I started the evening with a glass of white wine. To eat, Kim and I shared a bunch…
