worst…yet…best workout?!?!

This may just be one of my weirdest posts yet…wait for it. You’ll see.

Day started out normal. Coffeeeeee. And breaky before work. I got to “sleep in” since my usual early client is out of town this week.

Breakfast on repeat from yesterday.

I currently have chicken in the crock pot for shredded chicken. I saw a post today on IG about someone who breaks out bad from some kind of egg allergy. I’m trying anything. My face is HORRIBLE right now! I did have a crazy sick week last week having to do with girlie issues so hormones could be part of it. But still. Trying ANYTHING. 

Here is her post..

I’m gonna have to get creative with my hash’s!

I had one client for an hour and didn’t realize my next client wasn’t coming. I stayed to drink all da coffee and help fold some member towels. Soooooo glad I did. It paid off! My boss had a client show up that got the time wrong and he already had a session going on so he gave it to me! YAS! A 2 on 1 session for an hour. Super fun couple! Plus their daughter was there. She did the exercises too. She wasn’t really supposed to be part of the workout so she just had fun with it. She did burpees when she didn’t want to do planks. I showed her how us crossfitters do “real” burpees. Lol 

By this time I was HANGRY LIKE WHOA. I ran to my car to devour my quest bar. This has turned into one of my fav flavors!


This was just an appetizer. I made lunch as soon as I got home.

I’m convinced chicken sauasage doesn’t photograph very well. Buuuut that’s what I’ve got. Plus my spinach salad with wonton strips and a bowl of plain kefir topped with granola and wheat germ. Plus a sprinkle of stevia. 

After this I needed to do some work emails. I can only use my phone and it needed charged soooo I used the charger by my bed. Lol

I may or may not have ended up napping as soon as the emails were done. 

Before I knew it, it was time to get up and snack before getting ready for crossfit.

I cannot stop eating carbs with butter. #obsessed

Ash got to have some of those new jar of pb feels before going in his crate when I had to leave. All the smooooth yummy licks. #cantstopwontstop

On the way to the gym…you know I heard a Pound track. #poundwithdrawals 

Gym time! My fav! This is where things get interesting…And probably why I totally forgot to take pics of the wod today. So I’ll just post what was written on the website..

We did bike or shuttle runs. We only have 3 bikes so shuttle runs it was for me!

OK….so, first of all I wasn’t thrilled about this workout. I need so much help with all bar movements. They def get some anger burning in me. Lol For the C2B pull-ups…whyyyy won’t my chest fucking touch the bar?! I’m high enough! I pull has hard as I can. WTF. My buddy Beau said I might need better shoulder mobility. Totally gonna start stretching out the shoulders more. 

Now…for the second AMRAP…dear Lord. 

So first, I started out doing 21-15-9. 😐

I got through all of 21…and at this point I was wondering why everyone was flying past me. Didn’t click yet. I got through 15 wallballs and after 10ish TTB I realized what I had done and went straight back to wallballs. Fuck. Me. 


Holy. Shit. Ya’ll.

The pressure in my core from bringing my toes to the bar…straight made me orgasm. I fucking kid you not. I didn’t tell a soul that that’s why I had to stop and “rest” for a long freakin time. HOW CRAZY! I could feel it happening. And finally I had to stop and just stand there. Bent over. OMFG. Did this have anything to do with the fact that eye candy finally took his shirt off?! Bahhaha Not even going there. totally kidding. maybe. But still sad that happened clear across the gym. And lasted maybe 2.3 seconds. Or so it seemed. :-/ LOL #whompwhomp #nevergettingoverthis

But I couldn’t google this shit faster when I got home. And I’m NOT ALONE! 


#EIO #coregasm #smh 

Next time I see TTB in a wod I’m gonna cry..or get excited..lol #pundefinitelyintended 

Omg..needless to say I didn’t make it to shuttle runs that round. Damnit. 

Tried making up for it in the last round. 

After the wod was a little comp practice and strategy talk! Getting super pumped for this. Hopefully I can get another comp squeezed in before the en dog the year! I just remember how much I loved the last one in February!

Time to speed home for food. 

I heard this new song..or new to me..my new theme song..

Not all of the lyrics. Just sayin the title. #isuckwithboys

Dinner was out on the front porch. I missed this. That sickness took this motivation to carry my food outside away lol

Tea, the best PB and J ever, ground turkey and steamed carrots. Boring, yet delicious. 

I can’t wait for Saturday night already now that I feel better. Hanging out with friends is needed. 

Time to rest up. My 6 am crunch class is coming fast!

Night ya’ll.


#yourekillinme #need #withmarshmallowfluff

#nope #justme #partyforone #me #everysaturday



OMG I wish I had seen this yesterday! #goalsaf

#orcrossfit #butalsofood 

Damn you autocorrect. 

so this is what normal feels like.

That moment you wake up and actually crave coffee again…YASSSSSS. #hallelujah #neverthoughtidfeelnormalagain

First cup in over a week. LAUREN. IS. BACK.

I barely gave myself enough time to get ready. I had to think up breakfast on the fly.

I made some egg white’s in my easy eggwich microwave thingy. Lol Plus my go to mini s’mores bagel with light canola oil butter.

Can you tell I bought the cheapest toaster? It toasts so evenly, I know it’s hard to tell. 😐

I just had one client at 6 am. Drank a second coffee. Obviously. Then I went to get groceries finally. I bought ashton a bone since it had been awhile since he had one. That boy sniffed it out ASAP. 


Look mom..I a good boy..I sits. 😛

He ate the whole thing it was so good…

Then threw it up during the eclipse. 😐 #nomore 

After putting groceries away I made a second breakfast. 

Plain kefir with granola and wheat germ. And a dash of stevia. 

I was still hungry..and wanted more protein..so I had one of my good ol quest bars. 

See. I’m def back to normal. 🙂

After this I sat down to look into work from home jobs. I need to supplement my PT income while I build my clientele. I made a profile and actually PAID for this website. Shit is gettin real. 

I found some pretty good options. I had to update my resume and I’ll start applying tomorrow. By this time I had to start getting ready for open gym at noon. I had a 5:30 training session that was going to keep from making ANY of the 3 evening classes. I refuse to miss more crossfit after last week. 

When I was leaving for the gym I had some visitors!

They had been in my yard until I walked out there and scared them. There was also a mommy and another baby that ran to the right! A straight up full deer family. One of the babies I already named bambi. He’s my fav. 😉

On the way to the gym I heard an old song I totally forgot about. Totally makes me think of drunk dancing nights. Which haven’t happened in quite some time. I hate hate hate being hung over so I don’t drink much like that anymore. But shit, if they aren’t fun in the moment. HA!

When I got to the gym it was just Chad there waiting for someone to open up. Another guy eventually showed up…but no coach to unlock the door. We tried writing the owner..with no answer…thank the Lord Chad knows the code to get in. This was my ONLY time to workout today. I would have been pissed if I didn’t get to after coming up this way. 

I was kinda excited for the workout. We never do sumo deadlift high pulls! Besides that excitement. It was rough. 

Chad did the workout with hardly any warmup and peaced out. The other guy stayed for maybe 30 minutes then left after I finished the wod. I wanted to get PCS in so I stayed. By myself. No music. Because I don’t have the iPad password. FML. 

If I had music, it would have been shweeeet. I officially want a home garage gym. I can totally see myself rockin out and bangin some weights. My next house, in the country, away from people, will have a bomb ass garage gym. Time to start saving. I posted some videos on my IG page. The snatch pulls were boring so I left those out. You’re welcome. 

I got to wear my lifters. So it was a good day. 

While I was there alone…a salesman came wanting to sell the gym this…

Is it bad I wanted to act like the owner and accept this?! #nomorebathroomwater

I might start coming in the afternoon more when I can after the comp this week. #needgetovergymcrush #illmisstheeyecandy #lessunwantedcompetitiveness #focusongrowth

It was time to speed home and hope I could somehow see the eclipse! My buddy chad had told me that he googled it and you could use your iPhone camera, turned to selfie mode, and point that at the sun/moon and look at it safely that way…. 

I watched the TV with anticipation and kept walking outside to check with my phone to see if it was happening here. Everytime I checked it just looked like a full sun.

I can’t believe how dark Nashville got! Even though I think they had clouds! Sucks for them. Lol

And so you know…the iPhone selfie camera thing…yea…didn’t work. It always looked like a big normal sun. I could never tell when the moon was in front. #whompwhomp #shouldamadeabox #didntgetthatdarkhere #notimpressed

By this time it was time to shower and get ready for my late training session. I needed to eat too! I totally forgot to refuel because I was so concerned about the eclipse! Lol

Spinach salad with wonton strips and a light Italian dressing, sweet chicken sausage, unsweetened applesauce and yes, that’s a PB&J. 😛 #thatairybreadtho

I have that light 35 cal potato bread to use up that my mom bought. So I bought some sugar free blackberry jam today. So. Good. 

As I got ready…my late client emailed me. I thought she was canceling. She didn’t…but she did hurt her finger and coudln’t do anything with that hand. That limited what I could do so we shortened her session from one hour down to thirty minutes. And she asked to come 15 minutes early.

You know what that means…

I could have gone to the 6:30 pm crossfit class. 😐 

I guess I’ll just get more sleep tonight! Nothing wrong with that!

On the way home I took a screen shot of this song just to show you how random my music is on my iPhone hahahah…

Anyone else remember this TV show musical?! #donthate lol

At home it was early dinner time so I could get to bed earlier.

ALL DA VEGGIES. And protein. 

Quite the colorful plate tonight. Green bell peppers were sold out today so I had to pay the extra money for red. The tomato is one that my mom brought me. Homegrown! And steamed carrots with light canola oil butter and salt. All with a side of lean ground turkey sprinkled with salt. 

After dinner I went out back with Ash. He needed some play time so we played fetch for about 30 minutes until I was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. 

I might actually get 8 hours of sleep tonight at this rate. And it was a day with no nap. It’s gonna feel ohhhh soooo goooood. 

Night my peeps!

One year ago…when it was Ashton’s turn to be in the ER til 5 am. Weird. This better not be a yearly occurrence for us. 

I don’t know where this is..but I need to go.

#bestrecommendationever #whowantstowrestle

Found my bathing suit for next year.

Why did I laugh so hard at this?

Looks like I need to start wearing athletic shorts instead of booty shorts. 

And guys get to wear hoodies?!

What does it mean if you’re a girl and qualify as “does all of those” ?!…

Looks like I need to start watching out for every guy who workouts longer than an hour at my gym!

Bahhhhahaha. bottom part. #nocomment

#imthethreepercent #whompwhomp

Looks like I’m going to Croatia. #callmewinter #imcoming lol

back to my happy place.

I didn’t want to risk anything making miss crossfit AGAIN so I kept things safe with green tea. #meh #fixeverythingplease

It was nice to just sit and relax while feeling mostly normal. Caught up on social media. Then time to eat so it would digest before crossfit open gym.

The usual Sunday PB protein pancake bowl! Never tasted so good.

I had a friend text and want Mexican food later today. I am learning to say No when it’s something I truely don’t want to do. I feel super fat from not going to the gym much this week from being sick. Plus eating like shit. Time to get back to the grind. Even more so than before. My cheat day Saturday needs to be on a smaller scale! My abs weren’t coming through. And this is a serious goal. I told my friend I’d go with her next weekend. That will be my cheat meal and I’ll make sure it’s not as much as a whole pizza and dessert would be! Lol

I decided to take ash with me to the gym. I spent too much time away from him yesterday while at the zoo and out to dinner with my family. 

Of course we heard another Pound track on the way. I may or may not have half of my iPhone full of these things…

Finally at the gym it was time to decide which of the 34587028 workouts I missed to do today. I picked Monday’s. I wish everyone’s scores were off of the board. I have a not so good competitive thing with one person that makes my workouts not as fun sometimes. I am trying so hard to push it out of my mind. For good. This is my happy place and I want that gone. I want to focus on me, on making improvements, getting stronger, efficient, faster.

My time wasn’t what I wanted. My dubs always started out with a set of 30’ish and then I’d mess up getting 1’s, 2’s until I finally hit a good stretch again. Yet again I feel like I’m getting worse while others are getting better. It got to my head again today. I can’t wait for the Conjugate Box Tour night. 

Thanks goodness for a cute cheerleader today.

I wanted to work on snatches again today but my body just wasn’t having it after that workout. I need to ease into this after that ER visit and meds I’m taking now. Hopefully tomorrow is better and I can work on them then.

I headed home wit my boo to get some food. I was totally feeling my spinach pb protein smoothie bowl.

I put a serving of wheat germ in the smoothie bowl and a serving of brown rice cereal on the side to sprinkle in as I ate. Can’t let it get soggy. Lol

I was wanting to relax a bit and read but it was so nice out so I let ash play while I got some sun. Ended up just laying there with my eyes closed instead of reading. Lol

It was SO hot. I know it’s hot when ash actually begs to go inside. We went in to lay on the couch and cool off. I passsssed out. The workout plus the sun wore this recovering chick out. I woke up with a headache. My back has been acting up ever since I spent pretty much a week hunched over grabbing my stomach for relief! I decided to shower before making dinner. 

I ate an appetizer of nice cold crips bell pepper so I could take my meds. Plus I love eating in stages because who can seriously wait to eat while everything cooks/warms up in the microwave separately?! Lol

Next course was a ground beef patty and steamed carrots with salt. I haven’t had steamed carrots in so long, they tasted sooo good! 

To finish it off, a toasted whole wheat pita with light canola oil butter.

OK…now reading time.

With my cuddle bug.

I told myself I was going to stop at two chapters so i could watch GoT. I read three. I couldn’t stop. Even three was hard. 😛

Marathon time!

I had to get a snack partway through. 

Apple and PB #ftw

Not my usual Fuji apples. I had made a comment to my mom that an apple dumpling sounded good because she brough up fair food. So what did she do, she bough apples to make some if we had time while she was here last week. #worstdietbuddyever #nevergettingabswithher

I ended up feeling sick and not having time to make them! So now I can eat them in a healthier way. Haha

That was the last of my pb!!! MUST remember to go get groceries tomorrow!

I finished season two!! Ahhh can’t wait to start season three next weekend! 

When I came upstairs to my “home office” to write ashton was slightly excited. Couldn’t pick a toy to play with. He makes me smile. 

Time to head to bed. That 4:15 alarm is not my fav. Night ya’ll!!

#hotmess #sorrynotsorry

#timeforshittogetreal #sixpackgoals


#doireallylooklikethat #needalldafilters

If you find swearing offensive we can’t be friends. Just sayin. 

family time is the best time.

My typical Saturday. 

But lets start from the beginning…

FINALLY coffee?!?!…


Not so much. 😦

Still nervous to try it after how it made me feel last Saturday.

I needed to be able to teach my class this morning. I woke up feeling so much better! Thank the Lord for meds! 

I only took my antibiotic the last round of meds, not the pain or nausea meds that make me drowsy. Like, super duper drowsy. I think they were still working their way out of my system though. I felt slightly loopy, but not too bad. I had set my alarm at 5:40 am to take the meds right on time and ate apple sauce with it. Then went straight back to bed!

I wasn’t hungry for breakfast yet so I just got ready, drank my tea and went to work!

I was excited for after work because my mom, sister, niece and nephew were coming! It was zoo day! YASSS! I might have been more excited than them since I’ve lived here for almost 5 years and have never been. Lol 

They showed up almost right as I got home. So off we went!

Aunt YaYa ended up in back. Watching Christmas Curious George.

We had bought our tickets ahead of time so we got to skip a super long line! Shweet. Go Mom for thinking ahead!

First things first….FOOOOOOD. I hadn’t eaten since that little applesauce cup at 5:40 am.

We ended up sharing a burger and chicken fingers meal. Those fries hit the spot.

Next stop…the carousel ride! It was right at the entrance so my nephew was ready to ride immediately. 

He was too funny …we asked what  animal he wanted to ride and he pointed to the bench. That doesn’t move. LOL We asked so many times and never changed his mind. Way to stick to your decision bud. Lol

Aunt yaya was told to sit in back and he sat in the front bench. Lol 

Now all the animals! He was excited to see monkeys like curious george and a lion like on his shirt. 

Here’s just a few from our day!

Pretty white lion!

Monkey Island…with one monkey…with his back to us. Not many curious georges. Whomp whomp.

Bathroom art.

Baby giraffe!!! #fav

This girl loves food. My little spirit animal. I coudln’t capture her dance dance she was doing when she got this snack bar. Lol Never says no to food.

Lemurs are so small! …catch that creeper in the back.

We saw a glimps of baby Fiona! My pic didn’t turn out so this is the best I got. 

All Mason really wanted to do was ride the train. He could care less about Fiona lol…so next up..time to wait in line!

Waiting in line fun.

Cheeeeeeeese! Train ride selfie!

That about summed up what we needed to accomplish. We wanted the kids to get some souvenirs so we stopped in one shop that had a fun dig area. Another fav of Mason’s!

We stopped for one more ride on the carousel lol then found one more souvenir shop to find some CHEAPER toys lol. 


Mia LOVED her pink Fiona.

Mason ran straight to the alligator chomper!! Jess had seen a kid with one and was searching everywhere for these. She knows her little boy well. Lol 

We had to wait for Gram and Mason in the parking lot because Aligator had to eat some mulch. LOL

What a fun day. Finally headed home. Sign it was a success..

Next stop. Dinner time! And Aunt YaYa wanted to share her new fav pizza restaurant…don’t act like you’re surprised. Lol

Itallianette FTW.

Miss Mia lovedddd it. Mah GIRL! LOL Mason hasn’t been eating much all day. Stinker. 

they had to head home to Kentucky. I went home to walk off the pizza baby wit my boo.

Then gettin turnt…in my pj’s.

Hallmark movies, cuddles and kisses till I passed out. (Sounds good until you realize it’s with a dog. #singlelife)

My front facing camera is HORRIBLE! Can’t wait to get a new phone!

Ok…all da sleep. And Meme time. Back to my nightly post tonight! Have a fun Sunday Funday ya’ll. I’m finally getting to the gym after 4 fat days away! Seriously. Feeling huge. Time for macros and weights! Peace.

#nightmare #peace #weredonehere

#dying #myfrienddidthis #wontwatchit

#fml #singleforever




sleep on sleep on sleep. 

Those meds are da bomb. 

After a week of not getting much sleep because of a crampy stomach, getting knocked out from drowsy meds has been amazing. 

Although, I hate missing crossfit…again! ugh

I woke up in time to eat and take more meds. Sticking with bland foods to ease back into food …banana and toast with light canola oil butter.

That’s the closest I can get to the BRAT diet. lol Plain toast? Nope. 

I moved to my couch instead of bed. Turned on the TV and was ready to pass out yet again!


Got up eventually to let ash out. We enjoyed some fun in the sun. 

He likes big balls and he cannot lie. lol

It was time for more meds so more food as well. Gotta take them with a meal. So happy to have an appetite again. 

I was gonna make a waffle, butter and egg white sandwhich butthe waffles were sounding too good on their own! I also ended up saving the soup and crackers for the next meal. Guess my stomach isn’t fully back to normal. 

I took my meds and decided to try and read a little. When I start new books I hate putting them down! 

Perfect lazy sick day right thurr.

Reading out me back to sleep! Those meds kicked in and I could barely get through two chapters! 

aaaaand out. 

Woke up 4 hrs later. Not time for meds yet so I finally showered. Goodness that feels amazing after the night I had in the ER. 

My bathroom protector should have showered with me…

Have fun outside ash?! lol

I made sure I had a class written up for work tomorrow. Fingers crossed I make it! This will mean no pain or nausea meds since they make me drowsy. So nervous I’ll feel like shit again. We shall see!

More reading til dinner time. LATE din din due to med schedule lol 

Back to that soup plus a hamburger patty because, protein. Don’t leave me baby muscles!!

Time for bed and hopefully feeling super refreshed tomorrow for a fun day at work and the zoo! 

Night y’all. #alldafuntexts #alldasleep 

#wellsaid #nailedit




well that escalated quickly


The day ended at the ER…but started with donuts. Downhill like whoa.

I woke up feeling slightly crampy, but good enough to eat donuts. My mom had made them on the family vacation that I missed, so she had wanted to make them with me now I that saw her the first time since I couldn’t go. She woke up early with me before I went to work to get them made! #motheroftheyear

I wanted some of my healthy foods I had bought to try and get my gut feeling better so I ate a breakfast appetizer lol kefir, granola, and flax with a little stevia.

After I finished getting ready…the main course.

I want them again! Already. We use busicut dough for these. Once a year, every Christmas Eve morning we make homemade dough for our tradition of homemade donuts. Then I use chocolate, Carmel and today, PB icing. Oh. My. Word. Dat PB icing doe. My hands were too messy..and I was too into those donuts to get pics of the icing! Hahaha My fav is def PB and Carmel. 

I went to work for 2 clients and felt pretty good! The running joke with my buddy Chad is that I’m pregnant because of my stomach issues that come and go. “Morning Sickness” lol I told him unfortunately that’s 100% not it. #whompwhomp 

He told one of his clients and they yelled across the gym “eat crackers in the morning before you get up!”…a few minutes later…another member comes up and asks if I’m pregnant. 😐 LOL Chad’s gonna get it. Rumors are gonna get going around the country club. Lol

After work I went home to relax and feel better before my next session. It was supposed to be at 1:30 then she called to reschedule for 4:30. Grrrrr. Crossfit open gym time! (That I had planned on going to, you’ll see)

I had so much time to wait so I went to Target. I wanted to get a book! Buuuuut I couldn’t make up my mind…

What mood was I in?! Cute puppy emotions..or crime?! They were on sale. Time to get reading! Lol And eating all da protein pancakes! 

By the time I made it home after Target my belly was feeling weird and worse than the morning. I thought eating something might help..

That Carmel center in the protein bar is clutch. 

Plus another kefir bowl but with wheat germ this time. Seriously trying anything!

I laid back down on the couch with my heating pad and book. 

Crime mood it is..

Dog hair. errywhere..

The heat wasn’t helping this time. I couldn’t concentrate on reading. And with this going on beside me…When I was trying to have a day without a nap after a convo at the gym ..I wanted to just see how I slept crashing at nighttime..

Thanks ash..

Ok…giving in..

Rainy day feels. Soaking it up.

My stomach just kept getting worse. But I didn’t want to cancel my training session. It was only 30 minutes.. I can handle that..right?! 

I went back to the country club, doubled over in pain. By this time it was 4 pm. My poor client offered to cancel but I wanted to power through since she was already there. Struggle Bus city. But I made it.

I went straight home to lay down. I had a bag packed ready for open gym but just couldn’t do it. Unavailable eye candy was gonna be there. I guess not going was for the best. #findavailableeyecandy 

This is where pics stop. I was in bed or the bathroom in the worst pain/super nauseous state ever. Ever ever. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. When it hit midnight, and I had been tossing and turning in pain for 9 hours, I coudln’t wait another 8 hours for clinics to open. My mom found an ER that has a “pay based on income” option. I need to hit full time asap at work to get benefits!!! 

They did blood work, urine sample and CAT scan. What they found is TMI but I will be ok. Not dying. Whew. Girlie issues. Why can’t I be a guy. Lol 

I got some prescriptions and I went straight to a 24 hours pharmacy. Looking like straight hell. Make up smeared from getting sick…hair up in a ponytail holder but falling out all over the place from tossing and turning in bed..baggiest sweats I own since everything tight felt awful on my belly. The pharmacist must have felt so bad for me. He gave me a good discount since I didn’t have insurance. Lol I coudn’t stand up straight while placing the med order. And asked to go lay in my car while I waited. Lol He felt my pain. Love ya dude.

The meds make me super sleepy so I’m gonna head to the couch and pass out. Back on writing check tonight! #nocrossfit #noUnavailableness #wakinguptoacheckup #daymade



#squatbooty #watchout #dangerous 

Can I just workout all day?

Woke up feelin like shit….again.

Meaning..no coffee…again.


Late post due to wanting sleep and my mom being here. I usually have to wait til she goes to bed to write and I just wanted sleep since I’m not feeling well. Still.

Started yesterday with some applesauce to try and tame my tummy cramps instead. So not the same as morning coffee. 

Before heading to work I kept with the usual breakfast this week..

Omg you guys..when my mom is staying with me, I find super weird things out about myself. Like, I get mad when she leaves k-cups in my keurig machine. I take the cup out first thing before even reaching for my coffee mug. I don’t want to somehow ruin the machine lol. And now…this…

OMFG. I am so weird. When I get butter..peanut butter..anything out of containers, I keep it nice and smooth! Hahaha This drove me CRAZY when I opened it up and saw how she destroyed it! HAHAHAH dear lawd..someone help me.

I only had one client today. Thank the Lord.. I felt like shit the entire time. Went home immediately after to eat a snack and lay down hoping to feel better soon. 


I napped for about 2 hours. It felt good to lay curled up in a ball. When i woke up I realized my phone hadn’t been charging the entire time. So I laid there longer just playing on my phone while it charged. You’re welcome for all the memes….

Just talked about this!!! Lol 

Chyna’s feels…My feels if I ever get a triple digit squat snatch.

My mom and I were also going to look at paint to paint my front door and foundation around the bottom of my house…found this as inspiration..

And then found this as a cheat day need..

Adding banana and pb…genius.

There’s more but they will come at the end lol. 

I eventually ate some food before heading out to run errands with my moms. Whole wheat waffle, egg white and cheese sandwich with a bowl of plain fat free yogurt with pb and cinnamon stirred in. 

We went to Lowes after this. I needed to get paint samples to find a color for my front door and the foundation around my house that is meh looking. We also looked at new storm doors since the one on my house is probably the original lol And we got white spray paint to paint my dark green mail box. Baby steps to getting my house cleaned up outside! yas!!

Then a stop at kroger to get some healthy food. I did a google search to try and find ANYTHING to help this belly issue i’m having. You’re gonna see some different things comin at ya for a bit. lol

We went home and I laid on my belly for a sec before heading to the gym. Fingers crossed working out makes me feel better like Tuesday!

Obviously iPhone shuffle came up with a Pound track memory..

Thanks to my buddy Ryan being the coach, we got to work PCS lifting into our warmup time. Thanks to the heat…shirts were off already. Not gonna complain. 

The wod was rough. I didn’t know how my belly would do with TTB. After the warmup I felt decent so my suckiness at TTB was clearly just my own suckiness at TTB. Lol I need to do those at Open Gym when I do Monday’s wod. We also had to run while holding a 25lb weight plate. I so wish I had a weight vest. I feel like the awkwardness of holding a plate is the worst part! And it wears my arms out more than if it were a vest! Ugh. So jealous of the people who wore a vest. 

After class was PCS time. Since we already did the planned PCS, I did whatever mah boys were doing. Bi’s for the guys to start out. Eye candy switched things up and we did the usual 3 sets wide grip, 3 sets narrow grip, but we did 7 reps halfway up, 7 reps starting at halfway and going all the way up, 7 reps full ROM. I had to back that weight all the way down 5 lb plates on each side. Burn baby burn. After this we did 3×10 lat pulldowns. Into 3×10 dips, and 3×10 ring dips. Finally, finished off the shoulder burn with 3x 30sec. Handstand holds into 3 negatives down to an abmat. Woof. Arms officially dunzo. But…tummy felt great! Can I just workout all day long?!

Headed home ready to eat! When my tummy feels good I want allllll da food! Lol My mom was busy spreading fertilizer and grass seed in my yard. She wasn’t coming inside to eat…she doesn’t get my food obsession after working out. Lol gotta hit that prime refuel window! Haha I had to grab a pita with butter as an appetizer.

She finally came in and we made some ground beef burgers sprinkled with salt (she brought me more meet from my grandparents cows! YAS!), and some butternut squash with cinnamon and butter.

And to finish out my fat and carbs…

CLEAN EATING chocolate cookie dough cake.

Ok..I couldn’t resist the PB frosting. #sorrynotsorry

After this I just showered and sat down for a bit because I could feel my belly cramping again. I just needed sleep. I want to feel better!!! I’ll try to get my usual post out tonight if I get home from Open Gym soon enough. My 1:30 pm client rescheduled for 4:30 so I’ll be arriving to open gym later than expected. Grrrrr. Least fav thing of my new job! This is supposed to be my make up day for other late appt days! Or sick days. 

OK…time to be productive. I want to buy a new book. I’m going through fun reading withdrawals. GoT marathons have taken up a lot of my free time. Lol I need to balance that out. 

Time for meme overload. Have a great Thursday ya’ll!

#pizzaisbae #truelove

Hence..I need dis shirt. And pizza.

#illtakeit #both


#fuckinhell. #ilovefood #dying #peeeeeeza 

When all I do is go to the gym and the gym crush is taken…time to find a new gym.  

Back to crossfit…life is good again. Almost.

Crossfit today. Yes. Coffee. No. 😦 #depresso #almostperfect

I still woke up not feeling 100%..but def felt better than yesterday! Whew. Back to work. Which actually felt oh so good.

I did eat something to try and make my tummy feel better.

Another adult icee aka acai packet, and toast with butter.

Off to work. I had 3 back to back clients. They were all super fun and felt good to have a day of only training my clients. I ate a snack after I was done while I did some computer work and caught up with Chad on his vaca. 

GIMME PROTEIN!!! My baby muscles are wasting away! #muhgains #muhheart

Check out dat Carmel doe.

Wrong thing was in focus. But you get it. #quickieworkpics

I headed home later for lunch and a nap before my last client at 1:30. My mom was just about to leave to buy ingredients to make a cake we had talked about making last time she was here. Can’t believe she remembered! Lol So I got some peaceful nap time after fooood.

Momma brought the goods.

Grandmother’s homemade chicken and noodles. Ultimate sickness home cooked comfort.

Plus….all da chicken and noodleness.

And dessert…lol…


This nap was the BEST. I slept on my stomach  and for the first time in 3 days, I felt normal. I didn’t want to get up when my alarm went off. 

The second I stood up I felt a little weird again. Bleh.

My one client was super sweet. We are just working on strength. She is in her 70’s so it’s basic, but fun!

When i got home it was funny to see a visitor greeting me..

With my mom here he gets to be out more and I LOVE it!..not as much as him though.

When I walked in..my mom had found a surprise while cake ingredient shopping…

She gets me.

I literally JUST posted about finding this on IG. 

Had to. 

And it’s life changing.

Shit. #buhbyeabs

Now I need marshmallow fluff.

I decided I needed veggies in my life after this.

Is it crossfit time yet.

On the way iPod shuffle found another Pound track memory..

I’m gonna keep posting these until I get to teach again. #sorrynotsorry

The wod today made me a little scurrrred. My tummy still wasn’t the best while I stood there waiting to start. After warming up I actually started feeling a little better. And midway through the wod, I felt perfect! WTF. Why wasn’t I working this shit out of my system sooner! I RX everything except the last round. I went 85# on the thrusters. After the 3rd round at 80# I wasn’t sure I’d survive. Thank the Lord for eye candy writing his numbers up on the board between rounds to keep that motivation goin. I might have been caught a couple times. Sickness has me off my game. I still died. On the floor. #loveit #neededit #missedit #threedaysaway #datstubbledoe #fuck 

What was I saying…

Oh..PCS…today I decided to do yesterday’s PCS since it was all the snatches. I need that shit. What I hate to do, I need to do. Plus back squats. My fav. about died..but made it. Can’t get weak. #growdembabymuscles

Ya’ll…I hit 90#! Fuck. Yes.

I haven’t hit that close to my 95# PR in the Open since the Open.

I didn’t hit every rep, but I kept going until I hit 2 of them. Felt oh so good. 

After this I worked on my dubs. Not my best day. I only got 2/5 sets of unbroken 20’s. Tomorrow. A new day.

I had to peace out because I was meeting my momma for din din. Hibachi! I had a Groupon I had bought for dinner for 2, $25 off. #singlelife #nodate #momtotherescue

It was going to expire tomorrow sooo…

That moment a Japanese restaurant runs out of their famous ginger salad dressing…:-| #pissed

But then yum yum sauce came out and I was ok..

So. Full.

And it’s not even cheat day Saturday. Shit. Momma needs to visit on weekends. lol

Tomorrow is all da veggies and all da protein.

On the way home I heard  another Pound track..a sign?!…i wish..

Remember that cake…


Chocolate Cookie Dough cake. And there’s so much left over. Who wants some?!

I may or may not have busted out the PB frosting for a few bites! 

But it’s from this clean eating cook book so it’s healthy….right?!

Just say yes. 

OK..Now that WordPress messed up and made me start over from almost the beginning of my blog after writing 3/4 of it it’s way past my bedtime. More crossfit tomorrow..and fingers crossed for coffee.

Night ya’ll.

sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I miss my coffeessss. (And crossfit)

I woke up at 3 am with the worst stomach cramps. Got out my heating pad and hoped for the best. The best didn’t happen. I was doubled over trying to put make up on..NOT drinking coffee. I had to email my 6 am client and cancel. I wasn’t going to survive.

He wasn’t emailing back so I finished getting ready..not eating..not drinking..anything. I was ready to cry on my way to work.

As soon as I got to work I got his email saying he understood that I needed to cancel. I text my boss immediately and asked if I could go home. I sure wasn’t going to be a good trainer today. I could barely talk. I sped home with a trash bag on my lap. Yikes. 

I went straight back to bed for another 3 hours. Woke up feeling a little better. Decided to eat something. The only thing that sounded good was the acai packets I remembered were in my freezer. Instead of making a bowl I just ate it like an icee pop!!! I already know what breakfast is tomorrow. This was delicious.

It set really well in my tummy. Just what I needed. Good enough I got hungrier so I ate a protein bar to hopefully feed my wasting away baby muscles. Lol #imissgym #forsomanyreasons 

Moved to the couch and checked in on social media. Time hop killin me like usual.

Dem ears doe. 

My mom had planned on coming today and kept with the plan despite my tummy issues. While I waited I drank some chicken broth (so not coffee meh) and snacked on graham crackers. My boss text to check up on me and said to eat dry foods in case I had a stomach ulcer like he’s had. Graham crackers it was. While napping and listening to HGTV and Forensic Files. 

Oh …and did I mention rolaids are a food group in this house now?! They are totally working so I am scared to stop eating them. Lol

My mom had to get stuff out of her car and wanted to take ash out when she got here. He lovesssss her! Fav playmate ever. I think it’s the cutest cuteness ever.

I was actually starving when she got here. Yay! Decided to play it safe and my mom wanted to have soup with grilled cheese and crackers. 

Plus more sprite and tums. Lol Kickin this shit in the balls. 

And now I want grilled cheese all day, erryday.

I don’t know when I last had grilled cheese but I wanted about 50 more. 

After eating my mom had to get stuff from her car…He can’t leave her. …What about me bud?!

We were lazy together after this. All da catch up time. Played out back with Ash for a bit. More Forensic files. Only getting up for bathroom breaks for everyone. 

Such a pretty sky last time I took ash out…

Ended the night sharing some popcorn while watching a TV movie. Time for sleep, ant acid chews, and fingers crossed for a healthy tomorrow! 

Night y’all!

just kidding.

Sunday Feels. 

Sooo when I wrote this morning about having a goal to be outside most of the day. Yeaaa..I was just drinking my coffee. AFTER 1.5 cups of coffee.. I was right back to feeling like death. WTF. Another day at home. Only left once to get sprite. Not finishing coffee..and missing Sunday Funday crossfit..something is seriously wrong. This better be gone tomorrow so I CAN make crossfit…or I will not be a happy camper. 

This is going to be short. I am wondering if I completely exaughsted myself the last two weeks with no sleep and stress from all of chad’s clients. I need sleep tonight and my 6 am client has my alarm set way too early! 

I started out trying to eat more oatmeal..because carbs help everything…right!? Lol ..Plus all the super seed and ancient grain super powers?!


Felt worse.

Sat around for a bit hoping to feel better and go to the gym.

Time hop for all da smiles.

Sunday ab check wasn’t much fun when you feel sick and bloated. Buuut it is, what it is…

Forgot to do the bicep check until later..might have had to run to the bathroom. Eeeeeek.

Ash…not so impressed. Lol

Since I couldn’t make it to open gym..I made myself at least mow my yard. I knew I could run inside if needed. Lol

Left the house this one time to get sprite! Most boring weekend ever. Being sick blows.

Got the front yard mowed..back yard…ran out of gas. #soclose #missperfectionistisdying

Played with ash for a bit outside before I completely ruined the fun..

When you try to avoid your neighbors..this is not a good situation to be in…lol

We went inside hoping they would just find it and throw it back over.

Still waiting. 

The rest of the day was spent on the couch. GOT marathoning. 

Tried snacking on more carbs. 

Ash got in his feet rubs..I mean, what else are Sundays for?!



All da sunday feels.

Completely passed out.

When I was googling what to eat with an upset stomach..and the google ads are just cruel..

I scrounged up items in my cubbard to make my own chicken noodle soup. Chicken (slightly scared since I ate that Friday night before getting sick), spagetti I got for free once forever ago, and chicken broth I bought for a recipe I never made. Lol

Anyone need noodles?! Lol 

The rest of my day was on facebook and IG…so here is a bit to spice this post up a little! Then bed. Night ya’ll! Fingers crossed for a better tomorrow! And crossfit! 😛

Wait…there was a leg shaving season?! 

All of dem. #lotsandlotsofcardiosessions #sharemypb #numberonesupporter 

This needs to happen. What is this peanut butter frosting!?


…back to that frisbee…rip.

Who’s up for a workout?

I should really learn to buy a small.

Me. because I never get ready.
