Forgive me blogger for I have sinned, it has been four days since my last post.

Also, last time I rowed instead of running, which goes by a lot faster.

They say you can tell a crossfit girl apart from others by her hot body, nasty hands. This isn't to say I think I have a hot body, but I DO have nasty hands from this week.

Because I'm doing the paleo challenge at crossfit I've been eating clean this week.

First is haddock + steamed carrots/broccoli/cauliflower. Second is turkey bacon, green stuff + egg fried inside a bell pepper (so good!), last is plain old chicken stir fry. I don't have any recipes, it's basically just meat, veggies and herbs / spices I like. Loved them all. 

Personal Life:

For valentines day, I went out yesterday and bought hubby some really nice boxing gloves. I wanted to write on them but decided to hold out in case for whatever reason he decided to buy himself a pair between now and valentines day. BUT, then he said that since we can't be together on valentines day anyways lets just celebrate this weekend. So I wrote xoxo on the left and I love you on the right, under the curl of the fingers so no one would know it was there except for us. Romantic, right? When I was done I asked him how the gym had been (he'd gone to the gym) and he answered 'Great! I got myself a pair of boxing gloves this morning so I used the heavy bag! I'm so mad!!! I always ask him to tell me when he buys things and he never does.. So now I'm stuck with a really expensive pair of gloves that he doesn't even need.. And I went balls to the wall wrapping them too, yes that is a tissue paper flower..

since I was pretty mad about the money I wasted, I bought myself a sweater at crossfit today. I really wanted it, and I'm going to ask hubby to give me the money for it since I wasted money on gloves for him where a simple text could have prevented it. Hopefully then he'll learn to f*cking communicate with me. It's his money and I don't want to tell him WHAT to do with it, but for example, he bought an xbox from a friend a couple of weeks ago and only told me on Sunday. What if I had bought him an xbox? Or what if we had needed that money for something important? I mean it's only been a couple months since I had to spend my entire savings on new brakes for the car.. Anyways, thats my rant.

Even though I ended on a bad note, overall it's been a great week. Hope it's the same for everyone else! xx


  1. I am tired just reading your workouts!!! I try my first cross fit class on Monday - kettlebells - am very afraid!!!

  2. I'm really intrigued with the crossfit. How did you start off with it? I don't have any gyms near me that do it so I'm on my own with the workouts.

  3. Wow, is that really your food?! Man, I wish I could make stuff that looked that appetizing!

  4. I can't lie- those are some super sexy hands. I'm a total wimp, I'm not sure I'd be able to handle that. You're a rockstar!
