It amazes me how grown ups, who have children, act like children at CrossFit.

What’s the deal?

If you use equipment, put it back. Put it back where you found it!

That’s not how you found the abmats.

Why are you throwing clips on the floor NEXT to the where you found them?

Those are clearly 10# plates you just put on the 25# plate stack.

If you leave chalk handprints anywhere, wipe them up before you leave.


Today people just threw the abmats at the wall. Things like that annoy me, so in between sets I was reorganizing plates, abmats. I was even mopping. Really?

What’s the deal? Am I missing something? What is so hard about cleaning up after yourself?

I missed the third clean of the second and third set of 3X3. I pulled high enough, but I didn’t drop fast enough.

Squats felt good. That third rep at 185# was a grind, but 205# was smooth. Weird.

I planned on doing 155# Jerks but 135# wasn’t happening so I went light.

On the push press I tried to focus on not hyper extending and keeping the bar bath straight.

I input all the food I plan to eat for the day in the morning so I a)don’t forget to do it b) know if I need to consume more.

Today looks good so far. I just need to make sure to drink plenty of water.

Mr decides to do 305# for a double, against my advice. I guess that’s no longer his 1RM. #pr #crossfit @crossfitsiege

  • 1 pack of Wholly Guacomole


Spent: $71.22

Saved: $113.92

Three trips to Target today. The budget was $60, but we needed plant food for our garden. I will be submitting a rebate form for the plant food to get the $10 back. During my third Target trip I found a coupon for $1.50 off the fish, which was purchased during the first trip! Drats! That $3 saving would have put me under budget. Oh well, it happens.

I received a free $10 gift card for buying the paper towel, and I used that in the last transaction. I counted this $10 under the saved section.

Target issued a $10 off $50 food purchase, as well as a $10 off $25 paper purchase. I stacked each Target coupon with store deals and manufacturer coupons to get the most bang for my buck.

I was in Midtown for a  Crossfit competition (spectating) and I ran over to Target during the lunch break. I had to spend $2 for parking (gasp!) so I should probably add that to my total. Miami is too expensive for me. Sales tax is higher, and you have to pay to park everywhere. I go to Target four times a week, that’s an additional $8 a week, IF I only spend two hours. Anything over 2 hours and the parking fee is $4. Not cool. Mr said maybe that would keep me away from Target. Highly doubt it. I love that place.
