Today has just been a winning kind of day.
|Even traffic into Midtown couldn't get me down!|
I found myself at CrossFit East Decatur at 9am this morning, warming up alongside a few other folks ready to embrace the suck before embracing their weekend.
Literally a stones throw from my house, CrossFit East Decatur is owned and run by Shana Alverson, Unicorn. (If you know CrossFit, you know of which unicorn I speak of.)
And then all the sudden, she was there. In the flesh. If I hadn't already been sweating and dying because I was in the middle of the WOD, I would have been sweating and dying seeing her otherwise; she's a beautiful woman, a stellar athlete, and runs her own business. All packed into a tight and tiny 5'4 frame. Talk about tasting the freaking rainbow, this girl IS the rainbow!
Just being in the presence of someone like her makes you want to try harder. Combined with super friendly coaches, a great facility, a laid-back atmosphere, and the location, I could easily see myself becoming a member here.
They were cool enough to let me drop in, unannounced, at no charge, so it was the least I could do to buy a few things from the Pro Shop. (Right, like I need an excuse to buy sh!t).
I need this sign!
I need this sweater!
I need this tank!
I didn't quite catch it in the photo, but do you see that charming little breast pocket? Awww.
Of course, a winning kind of day requires bright blue Wunder Unders.
I dropped the turd nugget off at the groomers (he was seriously looking homeless), and did what I do best: stuff my face.
Paycheck Foods strikes again! I opted for a portioned plate, this way I could kind of eyeball my portions and wouldn't wind up at the counter paying for a $32.45 salad.
I had some time to kill, so I meandered into TJ Maxx. And found some adorable things; a few tops by Valerie Bertinelli, and these amazing pants. I didn't pull the trigger on them though, I didn't like how they fit around my butt. As I was doing squats, they kept falling down? Calvin Klein apparently does not understand CrossFit athletes and our ample behinds.
Splashy pants or no, the day ended on a sweet note: Elliott got the best hair cut ever, and I finally bought those black glittery Toms I've wanted since Christmas.
It's like a party - for your feet!
Have you ever had Not-Buyers Remorse?
When you wish you would have bought that thing ... To go back and they no longer have it in your size, color, etc.
Favorite item from the Whole Foods Salad bar?
I always get the cabbage crunch; it's a kind of slaw made with apple cider vinegar and purple cabbage, so good!
Are you on My Fitness Pal?
I recently started an account; help keep me accountable in the clean eating department!
Friend me! My aims are to eat a balanced diet; not a perfect diet. Balance to me means the right macro-nutrient breakdown of proteins, carbs and fats. No more than 150g of carbs a day, roughly 90-140 grams of protein a day, and the rest in fat.
