Brave…So Brave…

“Heels over head” has never been my jam. Point of fact – I’ve actually never dived (diven? dove?) into anything. (Well, except for Love but I’m not quite sure that counts.) Even as a little kid, the idea of doing something that would put me in the “heels over head” position terrified me. I’d get […]


Hamstrung!

At Crossfit yesterday, we did good mornings, Tabatas, and a 6 minute AMRAP of pull ups. If you have no idea what I’m talking about when I say things like “AMRAP,” you might want to go back in my blog (linked HERE) and scroll down to “Crossfit lingo.” Good Mornings work your hammies. You can […]



Qalo rings

Whatza Qalo? “Qalo” (pronounced KAY-low) stands for Quality, Athletics, Love, and Outdoors. Their brand is “Commitment is Contagious” – which I love. These rings were born out of the frustration of all us married athletes who love being married, love being athletes, and are just a wee bit tired of coming home from a workout […]


Here we go!

My avocado-bodied self salutes you ;-) Today I started Pomroy again. If you somehow don’t know what I’m talking about, click HERE – it links up all (I think) of the blogs discussing what is going on in my self-centered little world (laugh). The biggest issue for me is DRINKING ENOUGH WATER. If you’re starting […]


Pomroy 101

I’ve had a few folks message me and a couple brave enough to Comment (hi Michelle! Hi Kristen!), so sounds like a few of us will be doing Pomroy together starting on Monday (thank you, Amazon Prime LOL)! As I blogged about HERE, I am re-starting after having some success, then going off the program while […]


I feel better now…(really, a shout out for BeyondTheWhiteboard.com & the “Spirit of” Crossfit)

I feel better now. Yesterday, I had a good, long rant about what an idiot I was to have signed up for a Crossfit Competition this weekend. However, today, I am feeling more philosophical about it. Why? Well, because of course the gal who is putting the Throwdown together is lovely, and talked me down […]


Competition. WHAT was I THINKING?

You know what? I WAS NOT thinking. Our Crossfit box is having a “Throwdown” this weekend. I, being friendly with the coach who is constructing this competition, said “oh, sure” I would do it. My efriend Jennifer recently did an Olympic weightlifting competition, and she also was very inspiring to watch – ESPECIALLY as she […]


Catabolism (a/k/a “Cannibalism”) & Inflammation

I am not an expert on this (but I play one on TV – ha!) As those of you who have been keeping up on this blog know (all 4 of you ;-) ), I have been having a SERIOUS struggle with hormones, weight, and “all that jazz” that women over 50 talk about incessantly […]


Last Supper Syndrome…and the New Year’s Day Epic Bridge WOD

Last Supper Syndrome. So, today, my husband and I started the Bulletproof Rapid Fat Loss Protocol. Basically, it’s “eat butter for 5 days, carbo load on the 6th, go back to eating butter until you’re at your desired body fat percentage . . . oh and take a bunch of supplements, too.” As described by […]
