Walking For Fitness

FitnessFriday logoI know things have been a little quieter around these parts this week and while I would have loved to have popped in sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen. Sam was sick this past week so with 50 States events and driving all getting done by me so she could rest, I just didn’t really have time for anything else. When we’d get to our next destination, I’d cook dinner, clean and go to bed exhausted and wake up the next morning and start it all again. I’m happy to say she’s feeling better so things should start returning to normal for me soon. :)


The even better news is that we’ve finally hit some warmer weather and spent the last couple of days walking around warm and sunny South Carolina and Florida.


Next week is jam-packed with events so I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little bit in this next week!


I’ve been loving the warmer weather, not just because it makes RV life and chores more manageable, but because we’re able to walk around and explore all of these new places we’re visiting. Walking is a great form of exercise and stress relief. While I love an awesome, sweaty workout as much as the next person, sometimes it’s nice to just walk! There’s been a lot of that this week and I’m definitely not complaining.

The Week When I’ve Been Able to CrossFit


Don’t you just love that quote? It’s so spot on! While I’m in no way perfect, I know that my mentality has a huge affect on everything else around me and that when I brush things off and just stay in a happy place, then everything else is easier. It’s that whole energy we put out there, is the energy we get back thing. Love it!

It’s been a great week of workouts for me! I planned a few RV WODs that kicked my butt pretty good, we had 2 event WODs and since we’ve been back in Kentucky for me to get my tooth fixed, we’ve been able to WOD with our friends at CrossFit Maximus again. I’m taking full advantage of having a box to workout at for a few days and just LOVING it!
