back squats & brimfield

yesterday was our "rest day", but not completely for me! it was the first week of coach cat's olympic lifting class, and i had been looking forward to it for a few weeks!

we worked on our form for hang cleans, power clean, full cleans, the front rack position, etc etc! it was fun and really good practice, so i am already excited for next week {and saturday, which is another oly day!}

i tested out my new reebok crossfit lifters, and they definitely made me feel a whole lot more stable and rooted to the ground... love them!

this morning, we did back squats, five sets of five. I went up to 180# x5 twice, but that's not my 5 rep max, just working towards a new 1 rep max for this strength cycle {my old one at my old gym was 210#}.

after I showered, my mom and I went to check out the brimfield flea market. holy moly. talk about craziness. i could have bought a million things to decorate with and make things with, but I left with two mermaids...

this lady now lives on our toilet! i love her.

and this one is a hook that I put on the back of the bathroom door in place of our 3 hook rack that tended to get cluttered {by me}. now one thing can hang off her tail at a time! my mom also got a bunch of hooks like these {scallop shells, whales, and an anchor} for their new BEACH HOUSE!!!!! yayy!!!!

pineapples for the front steps or the garden.

if I can get mike to go back with me before sunday, i am going to have him make some deals for me! i had my eye on these angel wings and i am kind of regretting not buying them. i bet he could get me a good deal though! i'll let you know how it goes ;)
