I was looking back through some of my older blog posts, and this is why I love blogging, to see my progress, my set backs, and just a look back at my previous workouts that I completed. I loved how my body changed while on my journey with Team WAG, but was also sad to look back on the time when I was injured and couldn’t even bend over or lift anything heavy for 6 months.

This morning I woke up a little sleepy, but still wanted to get some type of a workout in. I opted for working out in my garage just for a quick lifting session and WOD. This summer Mike and I are going to clean out the garage fully and I’ll definitely share my essentials for a garage gym and how I have my stuff set up.

My new favorite thing is lifting in the driveway in the sun. My neighbors are all really nice, but I don’t think they really know that I do Crossfit. So it’s a little unnerving to lift and drop the barbell overhead on the driveway at 8:00 in the morning, but I’m getting over that fear and that feeling. It’s just too nice to not lift outside or get the WOD done in the sun.

My power cleans felt good this morning, but my form always seems to break down the heavier I get. My arms do this funky thing when I catch the heavier cleans, so I was trying to work on that this morning. I wanted to do something different than regular front squats, hence the paused squats. They got tough, fast.

Mike and I are headed to Europe in just a few weeks and I am so excited! We’re traveling with two close friends and we’ve been looking forward to going overseas for SO LONG. We have saved so much money for this trip that no expense will be spared. We’re fully prepared and I cannot tell you how excited I am.

I have a few busy weeks leading up to this trip mainly because I picked up an extra shift and was scheduled for a good amount of shifts before I left just so I wouldn’t have to use a ton of PTO while we’re gone. Today I plan on taking another walk with my Mom and Goose (and maybe Mike), meal prepping for my three 12’s this week coming up in a row, so that I’m fully prepared with food, and enjoying the evening with a family cook out complete with ribs!

I hope you enjoy the end to your weekend and get some down time in!
