My boobs. Look at my boobs! Yes, look at them.
These appear gravity defying — as if no child was ever breastfed. As if all 20 pounds lost did not come directly from my chest. As if they aren’t almost 40 years old!
I have discovered PADDED SPORTS BRAS!
I feel 25 again!
Front Squat 5x2 @ 63#, 83#, 103#, 133#, 153# (PR)
Felt like I could have gone up some more!

I’ve always told myself I couldn’t clean that much weight, but I knew in my head I was wrong. Looking at this WOD, I could tell the C&J should be the work, the rest is just stuff. So I went RX at it and did the C&Js one at a time and finished in 20:20. It’s easy for me to get stuff overhead, and I can just press the 95# if I want to — it’s the speed of the clean that still gets me.
Also, I was able to string together 8 toes-to-bar at a time (once) today. Getting better at stuff, getting better!
I left the gym feeling really proud of myself for not chickening out and doing a lower weight (which is what my brain really, really wanted me to do).
I dreamt I was Britney Spears …
… and I was playing a concert in Chicago. A package of makeup I had ordered was delivered to my dressing room. Peach-colored lipstick that you apply with a brush like nail polish. I looked at the price, and it was only $1.35. The shipping was $15.95. I was so mad!! Looked at the return address, and the company was in Chicago, so I decided to go see them after my show.
(My concert was a Harry Potter musical. The audience was floating in a swimming pool. A drunken Samoan man sank under the water and didn’t come back up. I saw the life guard shake his head twice, sigh, and dive in after him. It took 3 people to help get the man out of the pool.)
So, afterwards I drive over to the headquarters. I’m walking through the halls and there are all the famous models and photographers, and they’re all so excited to see me — especially one man. He’s the new product developer. Asks me to come to his laboratory and try out some new makeup he’s been working on with me in mind.
Of course his laboratory is down some creepy, dirty, cobwebby stairs into a mildewy concrete basement. He leads me into a back room (dim green flashing bulbs, plastic put down everywhere of course) and bonks me on the head. When I wake up, he has nailed my feet and hands to the floor inside of a big bathtub.
Shows me his book cover of the novel he is working on: “Nailed It.”
And I wake up.
Did my homework for tomorrow’s WOD. Hand is ouchy.
1 can black beans, 1 can Rotel, 1/2 carton chicken broth, 2 lbs frozen chicken wings, cumin, adobo and chili powder.
Crockpot on low 4 hrs. Pull out the wings and let cool. Purée 1 cup of the soup and pour it back in.
Add in a bag of frozen gumbo veggies and the meat off the wings. Cook another half hour or so.
Put the sprinkler under the trampoline.
30 Ring Pushups
30 Wall Balls
300Ft Walking Lunges
30 V Ups
30 Back Extensions
100 Double Unders
Let’s ignore the fact that I had a hangover and was dehydrated. Let’s also ignore the pounding headache at every exertion. We’re also ignoring that I ripped my hand on the pull-ups and the fact that my left arm hurts. Oh, and I got about 2 hours of sleep. Blah, blah, more excuses, etc. We’ll also ignore that this took me 35 minutes. Total shit show.
INSTEAD! Let’s focus on the fact that this was my first WOD where I did the double unders!! All 100 of them!
My salad has fennel, walnuts and pears.
The dressing is 1/2 avocado, 1/2 cup orange juice, scallions, salt and pepper. It is fantastic!!!
New favorite way to make salad dressing (using avocado for the base). All kinds of things could be thrown in there!
I calculated the number of calories in the “Paleo Granola Bars” with the pretty pictures I keep seeing.
IF it makes 24 (I had to guess, it doesn’t say), they are 290.
Good luck to all the racers this weekend!! Robb is running a 50k!
I have been getting 40-75% of my fitbit activity on the trampoline (which we decided to call a jumpoline now).
You guys are super inspirational, whether running one mile or walking at the park or Jazzercising or deadlifting 500#.
Deadlifts 4 x 12: 85#, 115#, 133#, 163#
- 15 sumo deadlift high pulls @ 65#
- 15 burpees over the bar
- 15 toes-to-bar
16:30 rx, but felt dead the whole time and not very efficient.
Then, tabata ab stuff with wall balls.
Humidity + lady business = sluggish sweat fest. Just wanted to lay down and die.
WOD wodded, post posted. Now, work work-ed.
