Good morning, beautiful! Did you get your Sunday night beauty rest in or did you wake up a complete mess like me today? I woke up sweaty, needing way more coffee than I ever consume, in a complete panic that I threw away an important document. Damn Mondays. But who cares about my messy-ness, let’s talk about workouts because it’s Monday and time to get after it!
Workouts were all CrossFit workouts this week. I just wasn’t able to make the FIT class times so I just stuck with my normal CF routine. By the end of the week, I had nothing in me. No drive, no strength and not a care in the world about the workouts. That’s why I love switching it up with FIT workouts at my gym. Speaking of switching it up, I really had someone ask me to post more workouts that can be done at home. So what I was thinking is that I can post either my FIT or CF workout and give you some modifications of how to create a workout at home with just body weight! Whatcha think? That way you’ll be able to do these workouts at home or while traveling if you can’t make it to the gym or just aren’t a gym person! Can ya dig it? Rad. Totes doing it. Now let’s talk about the week.
Sunday – Rest day because it was a post-wedding hungover day. Totally was planning on working out, then the wedding really kicked my ass. Can you work out hungover? I find it more and more impossible every year.
Monday – Our gym is doing this new thing were we are doing moderately heavy weight for max effort reps, in hopes of getting stronger. I do not care about getting stronger so I stay on the lighter side to just get a little burn on. I just want to feel in shape so putting extra weight on the bar now just ain’t my thang.

Wednesday – Our gym has been super into ring dips lately. Personally, I hate ring dips. Since I don’t have much muscle mass on my chest like I did in my competing days, ring dips actually hurt my chest and boobs. Not in a good way. So I’ve been doing dips on parallettes and raising my feet up to make it more challenging. Now it just hurts my triceps and that’s what I want! See, you can totally make CrossFit work for you!

Thursday – Rest day because it was haaaaair day.
Friday – I thought I was going to throw up this entire workout. I’m not sure if I ate something or if it was due to stress, but I about died the entire time. A row-run sprint in a workout isn’t good when you feel like you’re going to crap and throw up at the same time. Ew, I went too far. Just lost a male reader.
