Fitness Friday 39

Hi friends!

We’re gonna keep this short and sweet. I’m tired. We’ve been to crossfit five times this week and it’s kicking my ass…in a good way. Also, everyone please keep your fingers crossed that my parents are able to make it into town today! Of course we’ve literally had no winter weather yet this winter until the day they’re supposed to come into town. Anyways…if all goes well, they’ll be here (along with my sister!) for the weekend.

Before we get to workouts, I just have to show you my new tank top! I came across the Living Proof Fit Gear etsy store a couple months ago and finally got around to ordering myself a tank!


Isn’t it awesome?! I’ve already got my eye on this Love Hard, Lift Heavy one for my next purchase! Plus Miranda (the owner) is just the sweetest! I love supporting small businesses! Check out the Living Proof Fit Gear etsy store or her Facebook page to see more cute tanks! And if you’re looking for the one I got, she said the purple ones will be back in stock in about 2 weeks.

(*Sidenote- I bought this tank with my own money. I’m not getting paid to review it. I’m just sharing it with you because I love it!)

Ok…workouts. The past two weeks have been mostly Crossfit…with a few random workouts and dog walks thrown in here and there:


This is technically called Satan’s six….
Our coach changed it- as if that would make it suck less.
It didn’t.
This workout still sucked.


This is one of my favorite workouts to do in the basement!
Here’s a prettier version in case you want to Pin It!


Speaking of Pinterest…a few months ago, my pinterest account got hacked. It sucked. They went in and messed up a TON of links so pretty much everything I had pinned had URLs that no longer worked. I changed my password and stuff right when it happened, but never had time to fix everything else. Well, yesterday I sat down and did it. I had to delete a bunch of boards….but once I got everything cleaned up, I then spent several hours re-pinning things I had pinned previously and finding new things. So….I’m sorry if you follow me on Pinterest and got overloaded with my pins yesterday. I was making up for last time. If you don’t follow me, then you should probably start!

Anyways, back to workouts:


I forced myself to skip the nap I wanted to take,
and take the dogs for a walk instead.
They needed it more.
We all enjoyed it.


Client’s choice workout.
Our coach asked us what we wanted to do…
Then combined a bit of what everyone said.
Box jumps were my doing.
What can I say, I love them :) See, Lindsay?!


Took the dogs on another walk.
They’re expressing opposite emotions about their walk being over.


This was my lease favorite crossfit workout so far.
It was a partner workout & didn’t really get my heart rate up…
So I came home and did a circuit workout in the basement.
That’s me trying on my new tank right after I got it!


This was my favorite crossfit workout so far!
Maybe because I was wearing my new tank???
Or because there were box jumps??
You got to choose between burpees and box jumps.
But really, who chooses burpees?
Only one girl did. She’s crazy.


This workout also sucked.
But I liked it :)

Ok, that’s all! What’s the best workout you’ve done lately?!

  14. Ok, I also ordered that tank from her Etsy shop but when it came I was disappointed because it was a lot shorter than I thought it was going to be. Oh well, yours looks cute on you, at least.
    I have been loving my workouts at Buckeye Crossfit lately too! Last night was back squats and front squats for our strength and then the other day our wod was 5 rounds of 250 m row and 7 OH Squats (55#) which I finished in 8.58 and felt good about. I think I get more excited for the skill practice/strength work than the actual workout, hah!

  15. way to work it girl!!!

  16. love the sore today, strong tomorrow shirt– that’s how i’m feeling!
