Good morning and a very HAPPY Monday to you! How was your weekend? Ours was pretty low-key, but, at the same time, it was really nice and much-needed, especially after last week’s travel to the West coast and Mal’s solo parenting for part of the week. We both wanted to relax and unwind, but we also managed to accomplish quite a bit (i.e. cleaning, shopping, small house projects, meal prep), which helped us get prepared for the week ahead. That said, here’s…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I love it when other bloggers recap their workouts for the week. I like seeing what they do for exercise and how they balance their various workouts and incorporate rest days, so I decided to recap last week’s workouts for all of you nice people. I also wanted to recap my most recent achievement, which is actually one of my biggest goals””if not the biggest””for…

Alternate post title: “Secret Physique Hingham, Murphy Likes Cupcakes & My WODs Are In A CrossFit Magazine,” but I thought it was ridiculously too long. After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed to Secret Physique in Hingham to take my friend Chrissy’s class. She texted me on Tuesday night to see if I wanted to go since her husband was also taking the class. We’ve been trying to get together for a few weeks now, so…

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…

Check it out: my last pill for my UC!! I took that baby this morning, which means I’m off ALL drugs now. No steroids. No nothing. Booyah. Let’s hope I can stay healthy now! FYI: I’m taking probiotics (my doctor recommended VSL3) as well as a multivitamin and fish oil daily. Breakfast As soon as I woke up this morning, the thought of almond butter popped into my head, so I made My Favorite Breakfast…

Hi, guys! Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! Let’s get right to it! Breakfast Just like yesterday morning, I woke up craving My Favorite Breakfast Pancake, so I whipped up one and topped it with sliced strawberries and a big scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter. I also drank a homemade Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffee with breakfast. Workout After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. I almost didn’t go this morning because of…

I was right! Our box did “Fran” last night! The last time we did “Fran,” Mal and I had I just started CrossFit a few weeks before, so I used 35 pounds for Thrusters, a green band for the Pull-ups, and finished in 5:55. During “Fran,” I remembering gasping for air and taking a bunch of breaks trying to get through it. Last night, however, was a different story. I finished in 5:26, upped my…

GAHHH! I think our box is doing Fran next week! I am excited-nervous for it! If you don’t know what Fran is all about, it’s one of the main benchmark workouts for CrossFit: Fran 21-15-9 Thrusters (95#, 65#) Pull-ups As you can see, Fran is only two exercises, but the combination, coupled with the number of reps and weight, is absolutely brutal, which is why I think our coaches are subtly preparing us for it….

So”¦ remember those 3 miles that I planned to run today? Well, Fran had different plans for my afternoon. (Mal and I went to the 12:30 CrossFit class this afternoon.) Who is Fran, you ask? Fran is THE baseline measurement for CrossFit. It’s also one of the hardest WODs. Check this out: “Fran” 21-15-9 Thrusters (95#, 65#) Pull-ups It’s only two exercises, so you might not think it’s all that tough, but the combination of…
