Yes, Its Been A While

Not gonna go into how life is treating me, other than to say I have 2 teenage daughters; one in high school and one in college....life is busy!  I have missed you guys, and I try to keep up with everyone's blog.  (Love reading your posts, for some reason I can't always comment when I want to bc of computer issues, but keep them coming) 

Over the weekend I went to watch a few friends compete in a cross fit trial.  LOVED it!  I was like a kid in a CaNdY store.  Love being around like minded fitness peeps.  Everyone looked great, I even had a brief girl crush going on.  Really inspired me to add a little into my workouts - as cardio, of course.  So for this week I have decided to end every workout with a WOD and just because I want to keep track of them, I am going to post.

DL 5 X 8
Wide grip BB cable row 4 X 12 (really worked on "holds")
DB row 4 X 8 (Finished off with 80's)
Straight arm pulldowns 4 X 10
Weighted hypers 4 X 15 (feeling this one today)
AMRAP for 21 minutes-
Row 1000 m
Run 400 m

Loved the change of pace for cardio...

Here are some pics I took over the weekend....trying to whittle my waist down for Vaca next week ....TAHOE BABY!!!!
