A Half & Way Too Many Burpees (+ A New Workout!)

Let’s get real here for a second, it’s been such a roller coaster week – thank goodness it’s a short one! Since I was in Boston over the weekend, despite having a great time, I’ve felt like I’ve been playing catch up all week and didn’t get my weekend time to decompress. Add in a nice dose of work stress, life stress, and the personal pressure I put on myself to figure my shit out, and I’ve been riding quite the roller coaster. In case you didn’t know, I don’t actually like roller coasters. 😉


Anyway, it’s a good thing I’ve had some amazing workouts this week which have provided me with the time to do something for me and they’ve honestly been quite the butt kickers. And it feels good!

Yesterday was also the final CrossFit foundations class for me. I missed the class + graduation last week while I was in Boston so I’m excited to now attend any of the classes and further join this community that I’m already feeling a part of. 🙂


Now, as I promised…Wednesday’s Deck of Cards workout was AMAZING! I made some changes from another Deck of Cards workout I found and let me tell you, this one was awesome! It was not easy and definitely left me feeling sweaty and like I had a serious butt kicking. And of course following it up yesterday with more Burpees at CrossFit was insane, absolutely insane!

    I love this workout! Deck of cards workouts are so great to help you put in some variety and customize. I’m glad you put in the burpees, though, because I would have done myself a favor and left them out. 🙂 Now I have to do them, haha.

      If you rode in the gondola with me for the hike you would have seen a glimpse into what I’m like on a roller coaster…
