Weekly Workouts

Another Friday is upon us and as usual, I can hardly believe it! The days are passing by so quickly and while I’m crossing things off my to-do list as fast as possible, I’m also adding more just as quickly. We’re in the final couple weeks and trying to get all of the puzzle pieces in place. I’m still working part-time but thankfully Sam is no longer at her job and able to run around for us when I’m working.

But I must also admit being in the home stretch means there’s also been a lot of stress and near anxiety attacks at times. This whole thing is pushing me outside my comfort zone which is great but as such, I’m trying to get back into running to help my stress. After choosing to defer from the marathon a couple months ago, I let my running fall to the wayside. Honestly, I did it on purpose because I knew I needed it mentally and physically but now I’m feeling ready to bring it back. Not where I need to run 8+ miles every week, but where I’m running a few miles a few days a week in addition to CrossFit. So far this week, so good!

Weekly Workouts

I swear the weeks are just flying by! It’s like I blink and it’s Friday again. This wouldn’t usually be a bad thing but there’s just so much to do and not enough hours in the day or days in the week. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s a good thing I’m at my best when I’m at my busiest. ;)

This week has been full of moving, working, fitness, planning, celebrations and more. I treated myself to a much needed hair cut + color appointment and I must say, I’m loving it!


Aside from the cheesy grin, do you like it?

Anyway, the weekend ahead of me will be filled with more work, planning, fitness and hopefully some much needed relaxation and time with friends. But let’s not rush ahead of ourselves and instead take a look back at my fitness this week…
