It’s really nice to be at a point in my life where I’m not constantly stressing about perfection. I used to always worry about eating perfect every day or working out multiple times per day, but it didn’t seem to get my very far. I was constantly stressed, dissatisfied with how I looked, and pretty unhappy. Nowadays, I try to not really worry about those things as much because I know I do my best on a regular basis. Like workouts: Last weekend, when I headed to Portland, I brought a workout outfit just in case my friend Laura wanted to workout. Neither of us ended up wanting to, so we didn’t. Not once did I beat myself up about not working out. And not once did I beat myself up about indulging in all of the restaurants we tried.

I think it’s pretty easy to beat ourselves up about the small things instead of focusing on the big picture. The big picture being the things we do well, the healthy things we do for ourselves, and things that continue to make us happy. Like cooking our own meals, or making it to the gym regularly, or taking a long walk every day, or even scheduling a massage for ourselves (I’m doing that today!). If we are constantly beating ourselves up about the “mistakes” we make like the cocktails we had over the weekend or the pizza you ate while highly intoxicated or not making it to the gym like you planned, then we don’t create an environment for us to be happy with everything great we’ve done for ourselves recently. Sorry I’m getting all deep here, but I’m just reminding you to be kind to yourself. Because it’s Monday and it’s TIME TO KICK SOME ASS!

Sunday – Rest day because I was finishing eating in Portland and flying back to Colorado.

Monday – CrossFit – It felt so good to get back in the gym after a weekend of eating and no workouts in Portland. It’s nice to take time off from the gym but it’s so fun to get home to my gym family.

I got 3 rounds + 100m run using 95#

Tuesday – CrossFit – This workout (the third part of it) completely schooled me. I had to run 2 rounds because our class was so large. Good reminder of how out of running shape I am. Summer is coming, I need to get outside more.

20 Burpees Over Rower

I finished in 17:21 (I think, honestly I have no idea)

Wednesday – CrossFit – Because of my knee, I’m modifying almost everything. Right now, I’m able to do pistols to a box and I still get a good butt workout. You should try it!

Back Squats: 6 x 2. Adding. First set at 80%. (15 mins) – I squatted to a box (see previous post for details) – I finished at 140#


Alternating Tabata For 6 sets of each: (lowest score for each movement counts)

L-Sit (seconds) – I did hollow rocks

My lowest # of pistols was 9 and held the hollow rock for all 20 seconds


As Far As Possible In 6 mins:

5-10-15-20-25…… Russian KB Swings (70/55)

30 Double Unders After Each Set

I got through the set of 25 KB and double unders and got 12 more KBs

Thursday – rest day

Friday – CrossFit Open workout!

Complete as many reps as possible in 8 minutes of:

3 handstand push-ups – 3 cleans (185/125)

6 handstand push-ups – 3 cleans

9 handstand push-ups – 3 cleans

12 handstand push-ups – 6 cleans

15 handstand push-ups – 6 cleans

18 handstand push-ups – 6 cleans

21 handstand push-ups – 9 cleans

Etc., adding 3 reps to the handstand push-up each round, and 3 reps to the clean every 3 rounds.

I finished 78 reps rx

Saturday – Impromptu rest day. I was planning to workout at 9am in our FIT classes, but ended up babysitting until 3am the night before, meaning I didn’t wake up until 9:30am the next morning. Sometimes I think that maybe having a baby could be in my closer future, then I am slapped in the face with shooting pee and reminded, no thank you.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Juli, I loved the deep talk. It’s awesome to see and hear the journey you’ve taken. I used to hate rest days; I felt lethargic and a little guilty. So silly. I have loosened up, but frankly, I have gotten too loose with my healthy lifestyle and am excited to tighten things up again, so I can feel my best. But, I love this journey of health and fitness. And, your workouts are really inspiring me. Shoot. I gots ta get my butt in Crossfit! Seeing these specific workouts shows me how fun it would be, instead of having this curious yet scared mentality. Haha. Ready to bring it! WOOT. Cheers to a great week!

  2. I keep feeling lazy because I haven’t been getting to the gym as much as I want to, but then I’m like wait… I’ve been walking my dogs, doing yoga, running, etc. Thanks for the little Monday pep talk 🙂

    I got 20 reps for 15.4… but since 125lbs is my 1 RM for cleans, I was feeling pretty pumped about doing it 6 times!

  3. I’m so glad you decided to keep posting workouts, thank you so much! And I loved and needed the deep talk, it was just what I needed to here. I’m currently at the point where I’m eating clean and doing cross fit five days a week and results are slow. I’m new to cross fit so I know to be patient but sometimes I can’t help but just want everything now! Ha. But it will come. I just need to be more patient and to not rush but enjoy the journey.

  4. Um, not sure what to make of that last sentence!!??! There’s either a typo that’s making me read something that isn’t there, or… something else entirely!!! 🙂

  5. Lol just be happy. Thanks I think I can do that. I’m a fibromyalgia sufferer and this is just what I needed. Im kickin ass and taking names later as I start my journey to health in baby steps. You inspire me

  6. The weekly workout posts are the BEST. I’m so glad you started posting these, I look at them all the time for CF workout ideas when I want to do something on my own outside of the programming!

  7. Totally off topic, but I wanted to drop a note and say thank you for the Boulder recommendations. We ate at Blooming Beets and Cuba Cuba, and they were both awesome!! I never would have found those places without reading your blog. I also made your Almost 5 Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie last night. We really liked it! Thank you for sharing recipes (and restaurant recommendations) on your site for free! 🙂
