Friday Letters

Good Morning Friday! Gosh only one more day until the B-I-G 26! Ahh!! But I will chat more about that during my letters. I am once again I am linking up with the lovely Ms. Ashley for


Dear Birthday: Wow I can't believe that I'm going to be 26! It was just a year ago that I was in Vegas celebrating my golden birthday. Why does that seem so long ago?? I cannot wait to spend the day in the city with the lovely hubby and just walk around and enjoy the fabulous Chicago weather. 

Here are some pics from my 25th Birthday

Dear Leg: Okay I'm sorry I know I was pushing myself with the stupid box jumps (it was seriously like 3 weeks ago) and I haven't rested and keep pushing myself but can't you heal already?? My foot swelled up so bad that I had to leave work early on Sunday to go to Urgent Care to make sure I didn't have to get my leg cut off because of some skin eating parasite I now had. If you think I'm being dramatic here are pics to show you I'm really not. 
Right after my injury- and of course after I finished my work out

3 weeks later! This is after I went to Urgent Care

I know you are all concerned but good news I don't have a flesh eating parasite but instead a skin infection so I have to put on some heavy duty steroid cream twice a day. 
Dear Weekend Off: Even though it's my birthday weekend I am also excited to just be off this weekend! I feel like it's been a long while since I had a weekend off. 

Dear Crossfit: We have a love/hate relationship, most of the time it is love :) however Thursday & Friday's work out are Brutal. What am I talking about?? Here let me share.

Thruster 65lbs

-- Anyone who is serious in Crossfit measures your level by asking what your Fran time is-- 

7x2 80-89% of your 1 rep max (so for me that means 236-263lbs)
Then. . . 
25 Front Squats @ 75lbs
40 Squats
25 STOH (shoulder to overhead) 75lbs
40 Pushups

Can you understand for my love/hate relationship after these two work outs?? Thank goodness I'll have something to celebrate with. . . Sprinkle cupcakes on Saturday :)
