Some serious mobility happening today after the WOD. I love to hate the lacrosse ball and PVC foam roller. Pain never felt so goooood - traps are stupid sore from yesterday's cleans. I was rubbing that little ball all overrrrr my body, mmhmm.

I found these little gems at Kroger a few days ago. The brand is Simple Truth, and they boast some pretty rad stats. Only 7g of sugar, 21g of protein (bam!) and they're free of over 101 artificial preservatives and ingredients that most bars contain. And they taste way good. I had a bite of the chocolate flavored bar for dessert tonight to curb my sweet tooth.

Dinner was off the chain!

This my friends, is what we call Farm Burger.

I was sold when I checked out there website last night and read "100% grass-fed local meats" .... Whaaaat?! And I don't have to pay an arm and a leg for it and cook it myself?! We were sold. 

James went to town. I think with all his additions, his burger cost like $29 or something.

I had mine sans buns, with tomato, lettuce, jalapeno, grainy mustard, Cholula sauce, and these succulent carmelized onions that almost had me falling out of my chair. 

I was in such a good mood, I even ordered a beer. I haven't touched an adult beverage since my last night in Killeen. Ah, sounds like so many moons ago. It's hard for me to resist a good local brown ale on tap ... 

Still trying to fall into the groove of things out here in GA. We're still trying to unpack, organize and decorate the house. James is on leave (it's nice having him home, but it's a distraction I'm not used to), we're trying to settle into a box, I'm trying to get into a gym routine. I'm torn because I miss running/spin before the WOD. I also feel like the WOD's I was doing in Killeen were incredibly more challenging than anything I've been doing recently. 

I also looked at myself in the mirror today and felt fat. I've probably gained a few pounds, I haven't been working out half as hard as I was, and I've also been eating like a fat kid since James came home from Recruiting school. Something has got to give. My "strong" bone needs to get stronger. 

Here's to hoping I get back into the swing of things and a good routine falls into place soon.


  1. Hey Courtney-love your blog and I hate to be the P.C. police, but could you maybe not use the word "retarded," especially to describe things that aren't, like your traps. My sister has a disability so maybe I'm especially sensitive to it, but there some other words that fit the sentiment better. :)

    1. THANK YOU for saying something, I feel terrible and corrected it immediately. I was tired and it was a slip.

    2. I totally understand! No need to feel badly!!

  2. I like retarded. It means...slow. A good description after power cleans...

    1. Haha, thanks, but, it wasn't the most politically correct term - I think stupid really sums it up!

  3. Get back into it, by all means, but don't be too hard on yourself. You've had a lot of life changes, and you're back in the gym!!

  4. You'll be back to your old ways in no time.

  5. Anyone's schedule would be a mess right now....moving, plus moving all the way to a brand new city is quite alot. You will settle in, and establish a routine in no time. Don't worry. And there's no way in this world that you look fat. Silly!

  6. You would have to suck down 300 milkshakes before you would be considered to not be in ridiculously, overwhelming good shape! no way are you fat...get that nasty thought outta here;) but I do wish you a lot of luck in getting back into your routine and getting some kick ass workouts
