Got a $310 pair of handmade Italian shoes for $78 last night?

It is a Truth Universally Acknowledged:


That a single post of RAWR and kickass
will, inevitably, cause the Universe to kick you in the face.

Seriously, ‘Verse.
You must have a tiny penis for all of this overcompensating.

Yesternight’s Workout:


Got my ass handed to me by my Flexibility and Stretch class
(don’t let the gentle name fool you!),
but in part because we did this on Tuesday:


100m Sprint
10 20# KB Swings
100m Sprint
12 Head-touch Pushups
20 Jumping Lunges
10 V-Ups


My ass.
Is so sore.

You’re Welcome:


This daily dose of objectification is kindly brought to you by
the Fug Girls and the Olympic Swim Team, otherwise known as The Fab Abs:


Yesternight’s Workout:


Oh, man. It sucks to come back after a week off.


1min Burpees


10 inchworms
200m run
20 lunges
20sec L-sit

Seriously, this was kinda weak-sauce for us,
but also to be expected after being away for a bit.

‘s all good–we’re back to it now!

Yesternight’s Workout:



1 min Spiderman Plank
20 pushups
20 situps
20 lunges
10 Russian Twists (20# KB)


(I am both amused and annoyed by the fact that standard pushups
are harder for me than just about any other variation.)

Yesternight’s Workout:


Friday’s workout, actually:

x3 (I know! I KNOW.)

10 inchworms
1 min hand-touch plank
1 min spiderman plank (HOLY CRAP)
15 squat jumps
10 superman rocks


We were going to try for five rounds, but by the time we hit three,
it was DEATH.

The hand-touch planks are amazing,
because they force you to hold your hips still,
and you’re training your body to hold your weight on three points
instead of four.

But the winner in terms of pain?



I got the idea from my friend Charlotte,
and her time with the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleading squad.

It is fantastically challenging–
I think I only made it for 20 seconds or so before flopping like a dead fish.

Expect to see more of those in our workouts. 🙂

(Sorry, Jessie!)


We work out at a public park that’s kinda
centrally located to the Crossfit Buddies’ homes.
In the wintertime, it’s AWESOME, because we have the jungle gym
and sidewalk to ourselves,
but now that it’s summer?

We have to wait our turn for the monkey bars, too.
And we get funny looks from five-year-olds,
who can’t understand why we’re frowning when we’re at the PLAYGROUND.

I have to mutter “fuuuuccccck” all quiet under my breath,
instead of hollering it to the heavens,
or giggling with Jessie and Katie when the burpees are just too much.

Come back, winter!
I want to swear out loud again!
