I just used this test sheet to see what I can do.
green = I can do ityellow = I should test it soonpink = I know I can’t do it yet
I’m not surprised that overhead squat is my best movement. I’m a little surprised that my 500m row is that far over. I might have done that 1:55, even, but not recently, and I should test it again.
I might try updating this one sometime, too.

Cool sheet to check to see what level you’re at!

Last night we had another throw down in the Metro League and we came out with a victory. We finished the wod in 14:03.

The best part of all of this is doing team wods with friends and meeting new people from other boxes. Lots of fun!

Weekend Things

Friday - we had another metro league competition. We got to visit a different box and it was a great experience. We won 2-1 and even had out own little cheering section. Great support!

Saturday - our annual Overdrive beach BBQ. Great weather, great company, and great food.

Sunday - after the beach day, I could resume some gluttonous eating again. 2 pints of heaven in Earnest Ice Cream. I stocked up because this place has a 30 minute wait at times. So worth it. (I did not eat it all lol).

Waffles! Had a great night reuniting with some old friends. I had a savoury Belgium waffle with Brie, walnuts, and drizzled honey.

Yum!

Endorphins

I was in a bad mood all day. I wanted to eat bad food at lunch. I went to workout and now I feel so much better.

Go get your sweat on.

Bridal shower at the horse track! So fun getting dressed up in our derby hats and making $2 bets on horses with crazy names.

Metro League Affiliate

My CrossFit box has a team in a league with other boxes around the lower mainland. 6 weeks of weekly head to head wods against another box and then playoffs.

Overall we lost 2-1 in the wods, but our team of 3 girls and 1 guy took down the big boys in the third wod which was a 10 min AMRAP of thrusters and rowing. (We lost in the max clean and jerk contest).

Awesome work by the team and all of our box members who came out to cheer us on. We have such a great community!

Faux bob! 

Don’t worry, I did not cut my hair. These are just my front layers. Shorter hair is nice for the summer….but I don’t think I could go this short again….

The Happiness Project is complete! 

Thoughts on it? It really wasn’t very difficult to do. Looking through the pictures, I can conclude that food, exercise, friends, family, movies, and tv make me happy haha. There could have been a lot of repeats, but I tried hard to change it up. There were a few days where I did have to stretch to find something….but really, there are so many things that happen in daily life that can make you smile. It takes two seconds to take a picture and post it. :)

I’m happy (hehe) to say that this is a challenge that I could complete (unlike restrictive food challenges..or burpee challenges..pffft) lol.

Keep smiling everyone!!
