10 Things Thursday (tm Laura Belle)

1.  Crossfit 

What I did this morning in 46:06:
  • 1000m run
  • 50 Push Presses (55#)
  • 1000m run
  • 50 Box step ups (20")
  • 1000m run
  • 50 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (55#)
  • 1000m run
What I left on the table because there was a 45 minute cutoff:
  • 50 Wall Balls
  • 1000m run
  • 50 Pull ups
I worked as hard as I could push my body for 46 minutes.  I feel confident that I couldn't have done more.  I feel victory in the fact that I showed up when there were only 3 of us this morning.  I didn't let it beat me before I even got started.  The other two people blew me away but I just kept plugging away.  Considering it takes me 40 minutes to run a 5K.  I will take it!  That was one HELL of a workout!!!

2.  My parents are coming today!!

3.  My unfill has definitely worked.  I'm able to eat and drink again.  I was hungry on the way to work, but after that workout, I should expect to be. 

4.  I am 5.6 pounds away from my Olympic Challenge goal.  (If that is all that I gain back (.4) from being dehydrated, then I'm super psyched!)

5.  I really like My "March" picture (even though I actually took it Tuesday...close enough.)
5.  Did you all read that article written by the women that feels she has a harder time with things because she is so beautiful that women automatically hate her?  I find that to be a bunch of ca-ca.  I know a lot of uber-beautiful women and I love some and dislike is about how they treat me and others that decides that, not how they look.  I suppose there are some unhappy and petty women that just hate pretty people, but I think that is the minority.  If you are a good and kind person, you will get goodness and kindness back. 

6.  My company is having a cookout for lunch today and then we get to go home!  Plus we have tomorrow off so it kicks off a nice long weekend.  YAY!!

7.  Short weeks actually make the work week harder.  Every week I want a short week and then I get one and I'm like "Oh crap, I don't have enough time!"

8.  I'm just so happy that I'm feeling good again!  Can you tell?  With all the exclamation points and everything?  :)

9.  I'm having a rough time getting back into my water drinking groove.  I'm going to need to focus on that a little more, I think.

10.  Did I mention my parents are coming??  They should be here by the time my cookout is over.  We don't have a ton of plans, but we are going to the outlet mall tomorrow for sure.  We plan to see the Hunger Games and maybe even Mirror, Mirror while they are here.  And of course, we have Easter Mass and Brunch.  What a fun weekend with my family and friends!  I wish my brother's family was going to be here too, but you can't have everything.

I love your March picture. There's nothing like a jean jacket to complete a look. Great job on your CrossFit workout. It doesn't matter if you didn't finish. As long as you worked your hardest, that's all that matters. GET Em Girl!!!

Ooh my gosh Hero. I'm going to start thinking WWBAD? When I want to skip a workout. That's what would Beth Ann Do?

Notice the BAD in there? I'm certain it's short for badass. /nod

Love your outfit. Have fun with your parents!

Great 10 Things!!
And that outfit is too cute! Well, your too cute.

I heard about that dumb lady and I agree with you, you can be drop dead gorgeous or an ugly duckling and it all depends on how you treat me if I'll like you or not.

Have a great weekend!
