- The Lion King is quite possibly the best movie of all time and I still remember all of the words.
- “Whole Paycheck” took on a whole new meaning after three trips to Whole Foods in two days.
- Cold soup isn’t my most favorite dish, but after whipping up some chilled cream of avocado soup with crab I may have a change in heart.
- Spontaneous WODs that I make up on the spot seem to really kick my ass: 4 rounds of run 400m, 10 DB shoulder press, 15 DB front squat, 20 sit-ups, 25 push-ups.
- My parents’ backyard is the garden of Eden and I pray that someday I have as green of a thumb as my mother’s.
- I’ve come to terms with how much of a tomboy I was growing up and I’m pretty sure all that dirt somehow translated to my freckles.
- Ten more days of the Whole30 and I feel like I can go another 365 days.
- Cleaning my home can feel like therapy.
- I have the greatest, craziest group of girlfriends in the whole world and I would never trade them in.
- It’s a sign of a successful weekend when Rosie looks like this:
I’ve been in an odd mood the past couple of days. You know those days when everything around you is falling apart and you’re left scratching your head? Recently, it has been one unfortunate event after another–it’s hard not to feel awkward and wonder when the next set of bad news will be delivered. Definitely an uneasy feeling.
On a much lighter note, Barbara is one hell of a bitch. For some silly (yet totally genius) reason, classic Crossfit WODs were named after women. There are also a few WODs that are named after men and, of course there’s the Hero WODs…Basically, any “named” WOD is brutal, especially the women–because well, us women are crazy.
And Barbara is no exception:
- 20 pull-ups
- 30 push-ups
- 40 sit-ups
- 50 air squats
- 5 rounds (optional 3 minute rest between rounds)
You read that right–five rounds. It was rough and you better believe I used up my 3 minutes between each round. Total time: 34:28. After the first round I was like, “Hey that wasn’t so bad…oh wait, there’s four more rounds. Super.” Honestly, toward the end I don’t know how I completed a full sit-up–I would get a quick upward movement, then just struggle to lean forward.
This is exactly how I was walking during my cool down:
Legs = Jell-o.
Now, question of the day: If you could program the WOD that would be named after you, what would it be?? Post in the comments!
I’m going to have to think about that, but my initial thought includes deadlifts, running and pull-ups (only because I’m sooo close to a kipping pull-up)…
