The CrossFit Open 2017 – My Journey

Someone recently asked me about my experience during the Crossfit Open 2017. All I could say is that I am ready to try it all over again in 2018! I went in knowing that I was going to do my best to accomplish a few movements and overcome the fear of failing. The excitement and…

My First CrossFit Competition

Whoo Hoo!! I survived my first CrossFit competition. It was rough but I had a lot of fun.   CrossFit Equality hosted an In-House Competition along with their 4 year Anniversary. There was an RX and Scaled division. We all competed together in Heats throughout the day. I, of course, was part of the Scaled…

The smell of memories….

This morning as I cooked chorizo and egg tacos for my husband and son, memories of my mom came flashing through my head. Back in the day, when my dad worked for Coca-Cola, my mother would wake up very early in the morning and make him breakfast and pack his lunch. The smell of coffee,…

I’ll show you my True Colors…

I started writing this blog a few weeks ago, but I stopped. It’s not easy to write a about an eating disorder. Especially when many that are close to you don’t know about it. So, here it goes…. I had an eating disorder and it began when I was 14yrs old,  and many years later…

Life is simply an invitation…

“To me life is simply an invitation to live.” – Sean O’Casey My 2 weeks off was amazing, but I am ready to get back to work. It was wonderful being able to take a mini vacay with my daughter and visit my brother, hit South Padre Island and have fun. I cleaned house, did much laundry and worked…

Murph Monday

Today, May 30, 2016, I accomplished something I never thought of doing. I completed my very first HALF Murph WOD. Though doing the FULL Murph WOD would have been a good idea, I had to pace myself mentally and physically first. 800M 50 Pull Ups (I scaled to Ring Rows) 100 Push Ups 150 Squats…

It was a MM…Motivational Monday.

This was posted on Facebook back on May 23, 2016. It’s not a TBT or a FBF, but an MM aka Motivational Monday! A year ago today is when I began to buckle down and start working out. I started Crossfit with my cousins Rick and Jennifer and I was hooked. Yes, there have been…

Never judge someone who is trying…

Being committed to being healthy and being fit are such a huge struggle for me. I am my worse enemy, but when someone else judges me for the things I cannot do, it makes me just want to crawl back into my hole and never try again. Ok…that is who I use to be! For…

Beer drinking and such…

Sunday’s are always full of adventure. The husband and I hang out a several places, soaking up some great patio time and drinking some great beer from Houston’s local breweries. It’s late afternoon and we decided to end our evening at Axelrad on Alabama and LaBranch. This place is full of fun! Live Music, food…

fitness….lack of!

Yes, the lack of fitness has hit my soul and more so my body! The self motivation has become obsolete and well…..actually non-existant. I am in denial and I have no self control. But that is all about to change! I must work of myself, on my self-esteem, on my health and on my soul….

My Man is Better than Yours…

“My man is better than yours”….. This came up in a conversation I was having with a friend and she mentioned to me that she sees so many #mymanisbetterthanyours when it comes to women referring to their husbands, fiances or boyfriends. She asked me my thoughts and if I ever used it. I told her…

Today’s “grey”forecast…..

Gorgeous day in Houston this week. The sun has been shining, the air is crisp and cold. There is no sight of a grey cloud… then this happens. Conversation begins with a simple, Happy Birthday. Female – Person 1: “Wow, you don’t look like your ?? yrs old. You look way younger.” Male – Person…
