Fun Fridays



Tonight is our basketball playoff game we are in the regional tournament. There are 16 teams in the state of Texas left in girls 3A and we are one of them!! I even bought a new outfit to wear tonight see post below.

Tomorrow morning I'm waking up early to do crossfit and then probably relax and maybe clean up a little. I just plan to have a low key weekend since last weekend was a little crazy (my sis's birthday, I had way too much fun).

This morning I had an awesome workout!!

“Hang in there”

AMRAP in 20 min of: (As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes)

10 hang clean
10 box jumps
10 ring dips

box jumps


Ring dips


there was no example of hang clean, and my arms fell like jello. But I do see such a difference in my arms, they are getting definition!!! Maybe this weekend I will post a picture of me flexing my arms and post it lol....

New Outfit for tomorrow!

After work today I went shopping for a new outfit to wear tomorrow. I needed a new business attire outfit to wear for our playoff game tomorrow. We are in the Regional tournament for varsity girls basketball and I'm one of the coaches. We are two games away from going to the State tournament and I needed to get a new outfit for tomorrow. I bought 2 pair of trouser pants, a blouse, and high heels that were on sale for $21 at Dillard's.



and this second picture I tried to get the heels, they are black peep toes shoes.



Here are the pic of the shoes, its funny that they look black and grey in the picture but they are actually all black with tiny studs

Crap thats expensive!!!



This morning I payed $51.26 on gas because gas is now $3.19 a gallon. That means I will spend roughly around $200 a month on gas, becuase I have to fill up ever week. I have to drive about 25 miles to work so going and coming eats up all my gas. Oh well thats my venting on gas prices.

Todays Crossfit workout



“Hang in there”

6 rounds for time of:
8 Deadlifts
8 Wall Balls
6 10 m Shuttle Runs

Over the hump its Wednesday!!



Here are a couple pictures of Sophie. Sophie is a little firecracker she is tiny but she is fierce.




I didn't wake up early for my morning workout, so that means I'm going to have to workout after work. The reason I didn't wake up early is because our varsity girls basketball team had a playoff game last night and won!!! We will be playing in the Regional tournament on Friday, wish us luck!! The is some bad news, our starting point guard hurt her knee last night, we don't know how serious it is until she gets a MRI today. Last night a couple of coaches and I went to the hospital after the game to help support the kid. I just hope its not that serious.

Crossfit workout for today!!

Front Squats 5-5-5
or
Thrusters 5-5-5

4R4T of: (4 rounds for time of the following)

18 pullups
21 squats

I'm choosing to do thrusters. Here is a video of what they are

Here is a tutorial on pullups. Note: I use a band to do my pullups, I can not to regular pullups without a band those suckers are hard.


And here are the air squats, this exercise looks easy but after a couple my booty and legs start burning.

Crossfit kicked my butt this morning....

Here is the picture and the workout from the website.



“Master of Disaster”

21-15-9 of:

F.C. Plate lunge (45/35)
Burpees
F.C. Plate lunge
OHS (95/65)

ok let me try and explain this workout. We had to lift a weight plate over our head and do full court lunges. The weight suggested for women is 35 pounds but that's freaking heavy so I did a 15 pound plate. After full court lunges we had to do 21 burpees. A burpee is when you jump up then go to the ground to a pushup and then hop up and end with another jump (hope you got that). Then we had to full court lung back with the weight plate and then do 21 over head squats. An OHS is when you have a bar with weight over our head and you have to squat all the way to the ground pretty much. Then we had to lung back and to 15 of both exercise and then 9.

Here is a video about burpees

Here is a video of over head squats

Right now my arms feel like jello from holding the weight plate over my head and from holding the bar for over head squats. I do feel much better after the workout out mentally but physically that workout wore me out. But its like they say no pain no gain...lol

Happy Birthday Allison!!

My little sister Allison turned 25 yesterday!!



We all had a fabulous time yesterday. We started off with dinner at this great steakhouse called Nikko's. I usually get the fillet mignon (rare) there but I decided to get the Ahi seared tuna (rare). I'm so glad I went with the tuna because it was so good!!



After dinner we headed to Brewsters to watch Metal Shop which is a cover 80's rock band. This band is pure fun and I love 80's music.


Here are some pics of last night!!

Getting ready to start the night

Fun Friday



My Friday is off to a great start! At 5:30am I went to crossfit. Here was the workout of the day.



Run or Row 5k

I'm not a big fan of rowing long distances, so I picked the 5k run. I am so excited because I finished with a time of 33.00 minutes exactly!! I know that's not the best time but the most I've ran at one time has been a mile. Tonight I have a playoff basketball game, and the best part is my whole family will be there. My sister is coming down from San Antonio for her birthday weekend, so we are going to have all kinds of fun on Saturday!!!. I'll be sure to give you updates and post some pics!!!

"Did I Do That" Thursday



I had one "did I do that" moment. For valentines I baked the hubby a red velvet cake. I used the Duncan Hinse box mix and mixed all the ingrediants together. I have a heart shaped cake pan so thats what I put the cake mix in. Well the cake pan is smaller thant a standard cake pan and some of the cake acctually overflowed into the oven...ooppps. The cake still came out good tho according to my husband, and from the pic's in my prior post you cant tell there was some cake overboard....lol

Shoes that I love

When it comes to shoes I am obsessed. I LOVE shoes, and yes I even love the high heel ones. I don't care that when I wear high heels I'm like 6'5 and taller than my husband, I still sport them. Right now my 2 favorite pair of shoes are these.....

Sperrys!!! This shoe is what I call casual comfy. They are so comfortable. I wear them with jeans, shorts and even some sun dresses. And since I live by the coast I might as well have a boat shoe lol...I have this exact same shoe.



Uggs!!! I love my Uggs, I call this Heaven on my feet. They have come in real handy since its been a freezing winter. My husband thinks these are the ugliest shoes ever, and not worth the money I paid for them. Oh well I LOVE them!!!

Valentines Day Dinner

Today we had a low key Valentines dinner and we couldn't ask for anything more, it was a great dinner. I went to the grocery store and got a pound of colossal shrimp and a potato crusted cod.

The colossal shrimp, look how big these suckers are!!



I ate the potato crusted cod over a bed of greens and some shrimp(and I baked the cod so it was pretty healthy) and it was just delicious...



The hubby's plate, he doesn't like fish so more cod for me!!!



I also baked a red velvet cake, and I wish I could say from scratch but nope its from the box. Maybe during the summer when I have more time I will put my kitchen aid to use and make a home-made one.

I love my heart shaped baking pan!!!



I put so much icing that you can't even tell its a heart cake lol...



The hubby loves red velvet check out the huge piece he took!



This is funny



and I had to put this pic. Its of Sophie standing in her food bowl while drinking water from her water bowl.
