Coffee Date

Coffee Date

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I hope you know how much you’re loved today.


I’m thankful for every one of you who read this. Thankful that you have connected with my story, as crazy as it is sometimes. Since you are here, let’s have coffee!


If we were having coffee today I would offer you a Kill Cliff instead. I used to have an afternoon cup of coffee but since I’ve been back on my meal plan I haven’t felt like I needed or wanted it. I have, however, been feeling extra sore. This would be thanks to 95 lb front rack lunges yesterday and today’s saucy WOD


Yes, that says 2000m row – 50 Wallballs – 1000m row – 35 Wallballs – 500m row – 20 Wallballs. It was really tough. While it sucked royally, it was one of those WODs that made me really appreciate what CrossFit is all about. I was nearing the end and thought I couldn’t finish strong on the last 500m row and the 20 wallballs. Just when the hubs turned on my “power song” aka – ROAR by Katy Perry. And As those lyrics blasted through the box I almost wanted to cry…

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

And though I’ve heard it a gazillion times it sparked something in me today that I just haven’t seen in awhile. See, I posted about struggling with the WODs lately and it was like I felt like I wasn’t as good as I should be before I even started. I’ve been off my mental game, but today I remembered that I have the choice. The choice to get up. To Fight. Because I deserve to be better.

Anyway, if we were having coffee I would tell you I’m so over this weather. I’m sure the rest of the country is too. I didn’t realize how much this gloomy, cold, snowy weather affected my mood until yesterday  when it was “warm” and sunny (I use the term warm loosely. 40’s is not this Florida girl’s true definition of warm, but in contrast to recent temps it is warm). The sun felt SO SO good. I was on cloud 9. And back to struggle city today with the freezing weather and snow/sleet mix. If it snows much more there is a good chance I’ll need an anti depressant.

Oh, now that I am looking at the picture of my WOD today I remembered I wanted to tell you guys something super cool – I’m now a Fabletics Master! I absolutely love love love everything I have from Fabletics, so of course I’d live to represent their brand! I’m not even joking when I tell you their workout capris/pants/shorts are some of the only ones I wear anymore. I don’t even wear my Lululemon Wunder Unders anymore! *gasp* blasphemy, I know. Anyway, I even have my own profile page on their site and everything! Legit, right?


The outfit from this morning’s WOD includes the Camacan Capri and the Norwalk tank. Super duper comfy and totally adorable. I just got another order in that includes PINK Capris. I can’t wait to wear them. Another one of my favorite things is the Kingston Hoodie. It is like wearing a hug. It is cuter than your average hoodie which makes it more acceptable for non-stop wear, right?

 If we were having coffee today I would tell you I can’t believe my BABY turns 4 on Sunday. I’ll do a whole separate post on that, but seriously, where does the time go?! We plan to do some fun things to celebrate with her this weekend.

If we were having coffee I would also tell you I’m sort of excited/terrified that this time next week I’ll be having my first consultation with a plastic surgeon. Remember my problem with extra skin? I’m looking into getting rid of it. EEK! More to come on that too.

If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
What is your favorite brand of athletic wear?

  1. 95# lunges? OUCH.. My legs cry for you.

    And rowing and wall balls are probably my LEAST favorite things. UGH. The sounds terrible. Nice strong finish.. Roar is definitely a great power song!

    After hearing you boast about Fabletics over and over, I’m finally going to check it out. 🙂 At least one cheap outfit, right? 😉
