Boy, this nice weather has been just to die for. However, I am hearing that we will get cold again and *GASP* someone on a page I belong to mentioned a possible..POSSIBLE snow event next week. I wanted snow all winter long, however, at this juncture I am so over it.
Done work now until Wednesday night, and then next week I start my 2 days a week schedule! Yay! More time to live life, run and enjoy my family! Anyway, no scheduled workouts today, so I will just veg and relax. Feeling quite tired and groggy, did not sleep well. I know I know, I say it all the time..is it old yet? Well, it’s the TRUTH dammit. I’m tired and I did not sleep well. HA!
I went grocery shopping today,and I was the pain in the butt in the line that broke my cart into 3 checkouts so that I can use my coupons. I’m sure the checkout girl hated me, but is that not what she gets paid for? Seriously. I saved about $50 when it was all said and done. Picked up lots of greens, I’m trying Green Chard, does it taste the same? Probably, or maybe a little less bitter perhaps? Picked up some baby kale and baby spinach. Aww..the wittle babies. I cannot wait for summer so that I can have a lot more variety at a cheaper cost. I’m especially excited for the tomatoes!
Okay, so I want to clarify what I posted yesterday..I do NOT THINK ALL CROSSFIT WOMEN are bulky. I said SOME. SOME. SOME. 🙂
And because this is SOOO ME and I LOVE IT!!
Does the weather get any better folks? It has been gorgeous!! Too bad I have had to work this weekend! Makes coming home and wanting to go to sleep really hard.
I think I did better this cycle with pushing myself to stay up after getting the kids off to school vs going back to bed. It was hard, but in the end, I got more accomplished and my night sleeping was much better.

I don’t know I may piss some people off by saying this. I don’t know what the purpose of crossfit is. I mean I know what it is, but, what is the end purpose? I see women who do it and to me they just look *big*. Bulky big. Not feminine big. Now, this is just my opinion and MINE only..I like to look fit and toned, but I personally still want to look feminine. I don’t want to look overly muscular or overly big. I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and see how toned I am, see my muscles, BUT, I don’t want them to become too much, if that makes sense. After surfing several sights and looking at picturs of women who do Crossfit, a lot..NOT ALL, I repeat NOT ALL just look big and bulky. Is that the goal? Or is it to just become stronger?
There are so many labels on everything anymore, from how you’re eating, to how you’re exercising, to how you’re dressing etc..etc.. I don’t get all the labels. People are always on a constant quest to put a name or a label on something. To try the newest fad on the block. Is Crossfit the next fad? Also- it seems that if you do Crossfit, then you surely must do Paleo. What gives? Honestly.
I realize I may hit a nerve with people and I’m sure people will down right disagree with me. That is fine. These are my opinions. I laid in bed this morning while trying to fall asleep, wondering about the whole Crossfit thing. I don’t have a name to what I do, or what I eat..I just try to eat the best I can and workout. That’s it.
