I'm back!

USA! USA! USA! It's so wonderful to be back.

I have so much to catch you up on!

1) I flew from Kuwait to London to Seattle to Oregon on Friday. It was maybe the longest flight of my life. I was up for over 28 hours ... Didn't sleep a wink on the plane. I was too busy conversing with a bottle of Johnny Waker. *wink wink*

2) I was reunited with my love bug. And he hasn't left my side since. 

3) I made a large purchase. Meet Isabel the Impreza.

4) I miss my athletes and coaches at CrossFit Arifjan terribly. They spoiled me with an AMAZING going-away WOD, t-shirt, cards, cake, and I was even given a certificate of appreciation and coins from the 108th Sergeant Major. How awesome are my people?!

 Everyone came out to bid me farewell and throw down one last time.

I haven't been in the gym for the last 3 days. I'm dying. My sleep has been all ass backwards trying to adjust. I can't sleep more than 2 hours without waking up. I'm just trying to acclimate myself back to the States, take care of some paperwork, insurance, my car, living out of a suitcase ...

Oregon is not my final destination. I'm just here for a few weeks visiting with family, Isabel and I will be hitting the road soon for a road trip of a lifetime. 

This weekend I signed up for the CrossFit Kettlebell Seminar in Portland. So excited! Next weekend I signed up for the USAW Seminar. Which I'll be flying out to the East Coast to attend. 

Do I have any readers that live on the East Coast? Connecticut, to be exact? :)

I promise I'm working on my Advocare 24 Day Challenge write up. My Macbook air took a crap on me, so it's been a process blogging. 

Sorry to be short and sweet, but I have to run. Isabel has an appointment at the mechanic. 

Happy Monday!


  1. Congrats on coming back and seeing your puppy :-)

  2. So happy for you being back with your dog. Congrats on the new car & good luck with all of your new adventures!

  3. I'm in Connecticut... when will you be here?

  4. Where in CT? Close to NY City? - Jennie

  5. Yay for coming home and seeing your puppy! I'm on the NH/ME border, so not ridiculously far from CT. New England can be tricky at first but I know you can make it work!

  6. Come back to Texas….specifically Houston area ;) !!!!

  7. I'm in CT as well! Where's the seminar?

  8. Welcome back! And as a military member, big thanks for what you've done for service members.

  9. CT reader here, too! I took an internet break only to find out too late that you'd be here! Wish I could have met you!
