I got the eye of the tiger...

...a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you're going to hear me ROAR!

I can't tell you how much I am loving that song right now!! 

Yesterday, I was walking through the lobby and I tripped over my own feet.  When I looked down, this is what I saw...
Thank goodness for super glue!!

I tried on my Zulily dresses and they fit!!  So exciting.  Here is one of them (ignore the sports bra and other randomness)...
I have to stop buying stuff though.  My goal of saving money this year is only going about 1/2 as well as I would like.  And this is why.  Must do better!  At least I have gone to discount shopping and my days at Nordstrom and the like are pretty much over.

I went to CrossFit this morning for the fourth time this week.  I feel good about that.  We got our picture taken.  I don't feel so good about that.  Whatevs.
We worked on pistols today.  They are one legged squats.  I can't do them but today, I was able to do an assisted one.  You are supposed to squat on one leg with your other leg out in front of you.  Kind of like this (without the horse)...
 

For the first time, I was able to tuck one leg behind the other and squat down and come back up.  I have a long way to go, but it is definite progress. 

Our WOD:
30 Power Cleans (65#)
30 Overhead Kettlebell Lunges (26#-15 on each side)
30 Medicine Ball Sit ups (10#...all of the 14# were taken)
30 Kettlebell High Pulls (26#)

I finished in 8:00.  Not bad.  I thought I was going too low on my cleans, but 30 is A LOT!  It was probably right.  I should have used a 14# medicine ball though.  I stink at lunges, but they are getting an itsy bitsy bit better.

I will leave you with a pic my BFF sent me this yesterday.  It made me laugh because it is so true for me...
Happy weekend!

Hugs!

Ok, the girl on the horse got me!

The dress looks great on you. You look as though you have lost more weight and you have a great body shape going on.

You have such great taste in clothes! I love all your dresses. I need you to shop with me because I'm a fashion disaster.
You've totally blown the exercise out of the water this week! Great job!

I love the dress! And so glad you were able to save the shoe. Oh, and I totally have confidence that you'll be doing one legged squats on horses before you know it!
