Good Morning!! How are y’all doing this Monday morning? It is pretty gloomy here in the STL… and I have a horrible case of the sniffles that won’t go away… but that just means more hot coffee and tea!! I swear I drink twice as many cups of coffee/tea when it is rainy out.
Before I get into my weekly workout recap, can we talk about CrossFit for a minute? Of course we can… I’m the one writing this! HA. Anyways… One of the many things I absolutely love about CrossFit is the ability to easily see/track your progress. It isn’t just a number on the scale… or even a pant size. It is being able to hit box jumps, or being able to go from barely lifting the bar to doing a 95lb Clean & Jerk. Today was another one of those victory moments. I’ve been kinda terrified of Handstands forever. I wasn’t confident in my ability to hold myself up. Well… Today I did!
I was so excited!! Now I get to start working on doing actual Handstand Push Ups. *gulp*
Ok – on to the weekly workouts. I’m linking up with a bunch of awesome friends for this week’s workout recap: Meghan, Kat and Genna
This weeks workouts rocked. I have felt strong all week. Starting on Thursday – November 1st – I made one of my goals to do the #plankaday and I have been sticking with it!
I am feeling it in my core for sure!
As far as the WODs – I felt strong in most of them! I was able to do Toes2Bar (or attempt them) instead of having to scale to leg lifts AND I did a full WOD that included BOX JUMPS! I’m knocking these fears/weaknesses out of the water!! I actually got in 2 runs this week also, YES!
and see that picture in the middle of the collage? Those workout capris are from Marika. I bought them from Zulily and holy cow, I LOVE THEM. They have ruffles on them. Ever since finding these I have been finding more Marika gear (the long tights seen in the handstand pic and a sports bra from TJ Maxx and a set of plain capris from Sam’s Club) and totally digging it. They did not pay me to say this, I really do just love it all!! I’m also rocking my WODLove Love to Lift Tee in that pic above, I won that one and totally love it.
Alright, let’s hear from you…
How were your workouts this week? Have you conquered any fears/weaknesses lately?

I am so scared of lots of things. But I am just trying to live life and not be fearful. Congrats on making your goals. You look so happy! 🙂
Isn’t it an awesome feeling once you can do a handstand against the wall?? I’m not much further than that; just able to hold for like a minute, max.. but I love it!! Congrats!!
Awesome job on the handstand!!!

I need to look into what this cross fit is. I keep hearing about it. Great job on the hand stand. I am not sure I have even been able to do one.
