Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I give you a peek into how I live my healthy, happy life!

 

Holleyman

Yesterday was so so nice to have off from school :) Mike and I went to the Box at our regular time and just stretched out and recovered a bit from Monday's Hero WOD.

Then, I went home and relaxed for a bit before I went back to the Box to walk in the Veterans' Day parade! It was a nice day and fun to be with people I like being with ;)

I was starving by the time the parade ended, so I went and had lunch with Mike. My wedding ring came in, so he had it in his pocket and I felt like we were getting engaged again!!! Except, I can't wear this one for another 46 days {I may have worn it for a few hours yesterday afternoon & to the grocery store though!!!} I LOVE it!!

I have to share this picture of my abs {if you follow me on IG, you already saw it}. I do not "work" on my abs or really even think about them at all, but I am really loving them!

I also love this new seltzer flavor... Cranberry & Clementine. It's my new favorite!

This morning, we continued Hero Week and honored Staff Sgt Aaron Holleyman- listening to his story really got me today and stuck with me through the whole WOD. He had been sent home after being injured and becoming deaf in both ears, got hearing aides, and asked to go back to Iraq, all within a couple if months! He was an insanely tough and brave guy, and I was proud to honor him today by doing his WOD.

It was tough and just like with all of the other long, suffering type of WODs I've done, I don't really even remember it happening now. Black out city!

My chest is a wreck from the power cleans, though. I used 135# and between the competition on Saturday, all the clean & jerks in Monday's WOD and these 30 today, my inner elbow joints {don't know how else to describe them!!} are shot. I'm not complaining, though, because as soon as I was done, I got to dry off, go to work, and come home to the people I love.

Mike and I were next to each other and I was kind of following his pace the whole time, chugging along.

And now I am being super lazy {no Barbell Club tonight since it is Hero Week}, and taking some time to relax!

Have a great night!

the end of hero week
