I’m using a picture of Jackson passed out on the couch because that’s what I did most of last week. In Lake Powell. In previous years at Lake Powell, I’ve worked out most days because I was training for CrossFit competitions, but this year, no thank you! All about drinks, floaties, water, and Vitamin D!

Sunday – REST DAY! Guess what I did? Went clothes AND house shopping! House shopping is so fun!

Monday – Labor Day partner workout at CrossFit Broadway!! I did this workout with my friend Katie and she was killing me. We would split most of the movements into 5 reps at a time and she would finish her 5 reps in a few seconds and I would be so out of breath that I wouldn’t be able to pick up the weight right away. So I was a crappy partner. But she still pushed me to do the workout as prescribed, which I never do. And will not be doing for a while, especially if it includes squats.

For Time:

800m run (400m run each, relay style)

60 burpees over the bar

50 front squats (135,95)

40 push jerks (135,95)

30 power snatch (135,95)

40 push jerk

50 front squats

60 burpees over the bar

800m run

The workout took me and katie 27:33

Tuesday – Noon workout. I hate muscle ups recently. My boobs aren’t into them.

Hang Snatch: 1.1.1 – 14 mins to find a heavy triple with quick reset – I got to 115#


4 x Max Effort Sets of one of the following: ( 90 sec rest between sets) Muscle ups OR C2B Pull ups OR Pull ups OR Ring Rows – I got a total of 7 muscle ups (1, 2, 2, 2)


8 minute AMRAP:

8 hang power cleans (155,105)

16 wall balls

I got 6 rounds + 4 hang power cleans as Rx

Wednesday – I thought I was going to workout in the AM before I left, but then I didn’t want to. I didn’t feel like being sweaty and disgusting all day while driving the 7 hours to Powell. Just personal preference. So REST DAY!

Thursday – Lake Powell. Drinks.

Friday – Lake Powell. Sun.

Saturday – Lake Powell. Floaties. Oh and wake surfing.

Be sure to check the blog this week for a post about what I ate in Lake Powell and all the weird things that happened. I love when things get weird.

    Partner workouts still intimidate me – we did one yesterday and they are amazing to push each other but I always feel like I am letting my partner down! Rut rohhhh

    I just wanted to tell you how much my family enjoys your recipes! We started following a mostly Paleo diet a few years ago, and your recipes are a mainstay in our eating/meal plans. So, right now we have an abundance of spaghetti squash from our garden and thus far I have made your recipes: Paleo Pork Wrapped Asparagus with Bacon Infused Spaghetti Squash, Buffalo Chicken Pasta and Thai Pork and Noodles. Oh my goodness, all were fantastic and everyone loved them. And so excited you have more spaghetti squash recipes to try — and they sound fabulous as well. Thanks for your creativity and the delicious recipes you share.
