1. It's my parent's 37th wedding anniversary today. Makes me think if I'll ever be married 37 years! I have to get married first and I'm already 35! But I had a good example in what a marriage is by looking at my parents and all the good and bad times. I still see all the love they have for each other, even when times are tough.

|Um...not sure why I can't flip this. I did on the saved photo. Sorry!|
|The donuts were mostly gone before they even made it to the table this week, |
which never happens but made it easier for me to resist!
|Thursday birthday celebration - don't let the carrots fool you. I only grabbed 1 cookie. |
I'm avoiding the rest (although this is on the way to the bathroom)
So, wish me luck! Need to get back down to a more healthy weight. It will help me run better, I'll feel better, and I will feel better about the way I look.
3. I had been going to Crossfit for 1 month since I had a groupon. The month is over but yesterday we had a special workout for a marine that was killed on 2/19/05. Some of us pre-ordered shirts and also made donations. A friend of his created a workout in his memory called "Superman". And it was!
All the numbers in the workout meant something, which made me feel a bit better because when I saw 21 pull ups for 5 rounds, I just about fell over.
2 rope climbs and 19 back squats because he died on 2/19
20 Sit ups and 5 rounds because he died in 2005
21 pull ups because he was 21 years old
(Can't remember what the 15 represents! Darn!)
And of course they let us modify it. We had 40 minutes to complete it which is way more than enough time. I did it in 28:23 (but I did go to the bathroom in the middle, lol).
The rope climbs you can do from a seated position on the group and pull yourself to a standing position, and back down.
The back squats I did with about 53 lbs. But it was almost 100 squats when all was said and done! Wow!
I did jumping pull ups for my modification because I'm afraid of dislocating my shoulder getting out of the bands. The other modification is using a band around your foot connected to the bar which helps you get up. I've done this before but one wrong move getting out and I'll dislocate my shoulder and since we were doing so many and I played it a bit safe since I would be getting tired out and just did jumping pull ups.
