My CrossFit Journey Week 18: It's Genuine

Posted , by

It used to be that I found myself surrounded by a lot of 'friends' - you know the type. Fun at happy hour but not the type of friends you could call in a pinch if you needed them. For a long time, I have had a hard time getting what I needed from personal relationships. And that was okay, until it wasn't. These days, lots of...

My CrossFit Journey Week 17: I will. I am.

Posted , by

Hi friends, Here we are again...week 17. I swear I have never done anything this long and the fact that I've been able to stick with this CrossFit thing continually amazes me. Fun also includes being down a total of 14 pounds so far. If you read Hannah's post yesterday about measuring gains and losses you'll have a better understanding of why this is so cool....

My CrossFit Journey Week 15: It's Really A Community

Posted , by

You guys, what a week. I had THE WORST day last Wednesday. Work stuff, life stuff, relationship stuff. You know, the usual. Normally, immediately after work on Wednesdays I find myself heading to comedy workshop and open mic at the Joke Joint straight from work since they're both on the same side of town. But I had a horrible day. My head felt muddy and I...

My CrossFit Journey Week 14: A Crazy Thing Happened

Posted , by

Hi Friends, Here we are, week 14. I'll say it like I say it every week: thanks for sticking with me here. Your words of encouragement really help me on this quest even if I curse your name in the middle of burpees for it. All kidding aside, I continue to be grateful for this opportunity to join CrossFit and to make positive changes in my...

My CrossFit Journey Week 13: Visual Progress

Posted , by

FRIENDS! First of all, thank you for all of your kind words on my 13 week progress picture that I posted on Facebook yesterday (if we're not friends, feel free to find me here) . I am still in shock about how different my face looks!!! It's tough to see and acknowledge changes when you look at yourself everyday, and I think that's why it's so difficult for me...

My CrossFit Journey Week 12: IT WAS NOT THAT BAD

Posted , by

Hi friends, Allow me to thank you guys for your continued support and encouragement - even more so after last week's post. So many of you reached out to me to tell me about your own experience with depression, and I was overwhelmed with how many of you simply said, "I read your blog and I really liked it." Thanks for that. I had no idea...

My CrossFit Journey Week 11:

Posted , by

Hey friends, I'm sitting here, late Monday night, attempting to write this blog for you and I just don't feel right writing about the workouts I did and the achievements I unlocked this past week because a little piece of me broke today learning about Robin Williams' death and alleged suicide. If you don't mind (and even if you do) I just feel the need to decompress and...

My CrossFit Journey Week 10: Progress

Posted , by

Hi, Friends. It's week ten and I could tell you all about the week I had last week - a slew of early morning meetings and late night social engagements, open mics, and shows...but I won't. You know what those kind of weeks are like so I'll spare you the details. Let's just say I wasn't able to make the early am classes I wanted, and...

My CrossFit Journey Week 9: I Powerlifted!!!

Posted , by

Hi buddies, Welcome to week nine! It was a big week this week - for the first time I went to Powerlifting Club on Saturday. I wanted to go last Saturday, but I got kind of nervous and scared about it, so I bailed after my 9am class. I know. I assure you I am judging myself on that ridiculousness enough for all of us. With the...

My CrossFit Journey Week 6: I Have a Confession

Posted , by

Well, we have offish entered the second half of summer. I know, you guys. I'm just as sad about it as you are. Especially since I'm writing to you fresh from returning from 5 days of vacation on Madeline Island. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. I feel relaxed and rejuvenated after 5 glorious days of sunshine, dogs, Lake Superior, mopeds, mosquitos, grilled food, comedy, homemade ice cream, naps, and......no...

My CrossFit Journey Week 3 - Yeah, I Do CrossFit

Posted , by

They say if you do something for 21 days, it becomes a habit. While I haven't done 21 workouts at Solcana yet, this week marks week three of me going consistently! This is big progress, people. I'm going to celebrate this win. Last week, I was so excited when my pal (we'll call her J) started asking me questions about CrossFit. She had been a member...
