Welcome to my blog where I share what I eat, how I train, and how I live a happy, healthy life!


all is right & getting to know me

My favorite juice bar is back open after undergoing a major remodel and all is right in my life again! I seriously had many days where I would have killed for my favorite "green giant" juice. So yesterday afternoon, I went and stocked up on a few favorites to get me through last night and today. Aren't they just so beautiful!?!


This morning's WOD was a benchmark girl: Isabel. 30 snatches. The last time we did Isabel, it was in July, and I used 73# and finished in 4:53. Today, I did it Rx {95#} and finished in 7:19. I am not bothered by my time, I am happy to have an Rx benchmark to go off of next time! I was not going fast through each rep, I was trying to focus on keeping good form and getting under the bar, which I did. So I am happy with that!

***edited to add that I am now back at the Box for Barbell Club and my coach let me do Isabel again since I've been resting all day! I finished in 4:29 RX!!!! Holy shit! Faster than July and wayyyy faster than this morning- guess i just needed to try it this morning and then go ham on it tonight! 


There is no school today {YAY!!!} so I stayed at the Box for awhile and did some overhead squats etc. I came home and had this delicious breakfast and dreamed of every day being like this <3
