1 - February is off to a great start! We had family in town last weekend for my niece's 8th birthday! 8!! Seriously, where does the time go!?
Wasn't she just this little baby?
|Throw back - 2006!|
2 - This past weekend we randomly stumbled upon this beauty at Home Goods & brought her home! The TV stand, not the cute cat statue ;)
A "grown up" TV stand had been on my wish list for the house since we moved in, but it wasn't a big priority. We happened to randomly stop by Home Goods Saturday & couldn't leave without this piece! It was a steal! Getting the new TV stand meant we "needed" a new sound system. So we swung by Best Buy & got a sound bar as well. Happy Valentine's Day to us!! :)
3 - I just love this song, don't you? The video is really sweet, too!
5 - In case you hadn't heard, it's Snowpocalypse 2014 here in the south!! It started yesterday & is supposed to continue through tomorrow!
It's pretty, that's for sure! Be of course the whole world here shuts down. We cancelled our 7pm classes last night, early classes this morning, & all our PM classes tonight. Doesn't look favorable for tomorrow either!
6 - I guess the snow couldn't have come at a better time, though. I seemed to have come down with some sort of head cold! Yuck. And honestly, I'm not home that often, so I'm soaking up this snowed in time & making the best of it! Although, I wish B was here to be snowed in with me!
My cold wasn't that bad Monday, but yesterday I was really feeling blehh. Typically I'm of the mindset to sweat it out, but I decided to nap it out yesterday & stayed home from the night classes. I slept so well last night & am feeling much better today! Still super stuffy, but well enough to do an at home WOD!
I started with Man Makers! Woo buddy, they're good!! Jump out to plank, pushup, row on each side, jump up, squat clean thruster = 1! I did 5x10 with my 10lb dumbbells & I was sweatin'!!
Then I did this WOD I found on Pinterest (by the way, CrossFit Pineville now has a Pinterest Page!) so I don't end up Fat Michelle while stuck at home!! Did it in 17:23, care to try & beat me? :)
This is what I looked like after, haha! Just keeping it real for y'all... crazy hair, sweat, I love it!
7 - I need to be better asap, I'm in a local team CrossFit competition this weekend called Squad Gauntlet! It's a 4 person team & I'm doing it with some friends from the box! Should be really fun :)
8 - B & I have a fun little date night afterwards to celebrate Valentine's! We're not super into the holiday, but love a reason for a date!
9 - I will not be eating lots of chocolate this Valentine's since we're doing a 6 week Paleo Challenge at the gym. It started this past Monday & it's been great so far! It's nice to exercise a little self discipline! I'm sure I won't miss the chocolate that bad! Mind over matter, my friends.
10 - I have nothing else for you, but I couldn't end on 9 :)
