Ok. So very quick update as I still have a paper to write that’s due tonight. No, no, I swear I’m not a procrastinator! Well, maybe I am a little!

Started Crossfit boot camp tonight; and although I’m looking forward to going back tomorrow, I’m wondering if my body will feel the same come morning. Tonight was all about dead lifts and I swear everything involves squats. We used the weighted bar, kettle balls, and just for fun threw in some crazy medicine ball move. Sometime this week I will write up something on what Crossfit is for any of you who haven’t heard about it. For now, it’s time to write a kick butt paper. Have a good night all 🙂

Oh my goodness y’all! I definitely figured out how to get out of the idle rut that started this blog! I can definitely say I am on my way to things being fantastic 🙂

I often refer to the various areas of my life I’m working on. Currently, several areas of my life are seeing major improvement. My career and finances, due to my recent promotion, are in an upswing. I started back to class last week, so education is moving in a positive direction. I’m working on personal relationships that were previously in a decline and are now steadily improving. Then, this morning, I did something to improve my health.

This morning’s new adventure found me at Crossfit. Crossfit is an intense athletic training program. I just did the test drive today; but holy crap was it intense!

The warm up alone consisted of 10 each squats, push ups, pull ups, sit ups, back extensions, and tri raises. Then the mini workout included a 500 meter row, 30 squats, 20 sit ups, 10 push ups, and 5 pull ups.

I start a two week boot camp Monday. I’m both excited and a tad scared! Wish me luck y’all and I’ll be checking in soon!

Hey all! So, it has been a while since I have said hello. I won’t say I’m back quite yet, but I hope to be soon!

I’m gradually settling my office. I have a new employee and nearly have my veteran junior trained on my morning duties so I can focus more on learning my new duties. All in all, it’s been a little rocky, but nothing more than the bumps and bruises you get from learning something new.

I had to push starting school back a couple weeks, so that begins this coming Tuesday. My work schedule was far too crazy in the beginning, but is far better now.

I went a little crazy at first due to a personal life crisis in the midst of all this change, so I had started going out far too often again. Now, I don’t mean the certifiable kind of crazy, but the stressed to no end kind of crazy. I figured out quickly that the kind of therapy I was seeking helped nothing and added weight to my figure. Unacceptable!

The personal crisis is getting handled and I’m looking for new and better ways to deal with the new stressors in my life. I hope to go within the next week or two to check out the Cross Fit training program near me.

A co-worker talked me into it after describing her personal experience in the program. In my typical nerdy fashion, I’ve been doing my background research and am pretty excited about what I have found! I’ll keep y’all posted on my decision and any updates if I join. If any readers out there have been in this type of program, I’d love to hear about it!

I’ve missed y’all and hope to write soon 🙂
