It's Friday!  Woot!  I just realized that I never did blog yesterday.  Times are crazy busy, but I know I need to make just an itty bit of time to get it done.

Yesterday I got a new dryer.  I went for one on clearance and it happens to be a steam dryer.  Sounds interesting!  After the delivery, I went to Jazzercise.  I know I talk about CrossFit a lot because it is new and different, but I do love Jazzercise.  I'm going into my 10th year of it and it is just part of my life to go.  (FYI...the semi-annual sale is going on this weekend.  If you are interested in Jazzercise, this is a good deal!  Start for ZERO DOLLARS...your first payment would be for February.  AND you get 5 free friend passes so you can   Go to for details!)

When I got home from Jazzercise it was time to watch the IU game.  I'm so happy they are good again!  It has been a loooong five years.  Unfortunately, I had to go to bed before it was over if I was going to get up early. 

But I did get up for CrossFit this morning.  Our warmup was brutal!  1/2 mile run followed by as many as possible in one minute: wall balls, squats, deadlifts with the balls.  I was dying after that!  But then we moved on to Squat Balances which is the first thing demonstrated in this video.
We did five rounds of three.  I started out with just the bar (35#) and ended at 60#.  Not too bad considering my personal best (any kind of) snatch was 55#.  Going up is always good!

To end the workout, we did Tabata Kettlebell Windmills.  Tabata means 20 seconds on then 10 seconds off, 8 rounds which ends up being 4 minutes.  I used a 10# kettlebell which was somewhat light for me, but the next size up (18#) was too heavy.  One side was MUCH easier than the other.  I did 74 overall.

I finally feel caught up on sleep.  Just in time for the weekend so I can screw it all up again!  :)  I have a lot of fun things coming up over the next couple of months including (at the end of February) a Texas mini-BOOBs!  That is going to be so much fun!!

Have a great weekend, all!
