24 DAYS OF THANKS
#22 - I am thankful for my Mom. She is the most important admirable person in my life. She has taught me how to be an independent woman, how to stand on my own to feet, how to be compassionate and loving and overall how to be the woman I have become. She is my best friend. The one I argue with most, however the one whos opinion I value the most. I seek her advise, listen to her opinion and talk to her about everything. I am one lucky lady to have her as my mom. I can only hope I am half the mom my mom is when I have children.


Todays WOD was awesome. Again... right up my alley. KP and T were there to WOD with me which is just more determination to kick its ass!! I love dead lifting so todays body weight deadlifts were great!! One thing, is the fact that my BW has gone down, but another because I get such a high over lifting heavy. After the warmup was done I was ready....

Still sore from the run, even more sore than Monday, i was geared up. I was thinking that all it could really do was loosen me up. We all got on the rowers and M set the timer. We were off. My deadlifts were slow, but they were good and consistent. I had good form throughout he whole thing and just kept pushing.

I think the hardest thing were the box jumps. After KP and T pulled ahead of me on the deadlifts they got an even bigger lead on the box jumps. I kept my head high and just kept pushing to get them done. Each of the rows got tougher and tougher... leading into the deadlifts my legs were jello.

All three of us got through the workout and in really good time. I felt good when I was done, as I said, heavy deadlifts really pump me up. I was the last to finish, but KP and T stood by and cheered me on with M to finish strong.

Finally after the WOD we did strength, KP and I worked on out pullup. I started with the small green band, did four sets of three with it. M than challenged me by telling me that my band was too big and I went for another set with the small blue band. To my own surprise I got three in. Maybe those pull ups arent too far ahead...
