Blah. We all have bad days, right? Even the most positive people experience them from time-to-time, but how they deal with them is key to turning it around. Mal, for example, is one of the most optimistic and upbeat people I have ever met, which balances my naturally pessimistic outlook. When something goes wrong in my life, I automatically think everything will go wrong and what happened is all my fault. Rationally, I know this is…

Happy Friday, friends! My friend Abby tagged me in her A to Z post yesterday (and you know how I love blog surveys), so I decided to take part this morning. Feel free to play along in the comments section””I love learning new things about you guys! A. Attached or single? Attached. Married for 5 years. Together for almost 10 years. B. Best friend? Mal. C. Cake or pie? Cake. Duh. D. Day of choice?…

I managed to do my very first WOD (besides farmers’ carries) with a 53-pound…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! He who is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else. Workout It’s funny”¦ the workouts I’m not psyched about doing at CrossFit always end up being my favorites, which is exactly what happened last night. I’m not a fan of Squat Cleans. They actually might be my least favorite exercise because they’re really hard and my quads burn like a mofo when I do them. So when…
