Virtual Coffee Date #7


It’s that time again.. another week has come and gone. Being that it’s Sunday evening as I write this I’m enjoying some wine (definitely more than one glass type of night..) but grab some coffee/wine/tea and let’s chat 🙂 



If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that I let one of the coaches at my box convince me into signing up for the Crossfit Open. The first released workout included my biggest weaknesses–snatches & double unders. I figure it’s a good way to get an extra workout a week in & find out what I need to work on so I can truly compete in 2015. Needless to say I spent Friday evening practicing my DU and ended up like I just got whipped right before going on a date. Good thing it’s still jacket season 🙂  


If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that I’m going to Colorado in April! Really excited to spend time with some good family friends, learn how to ski better, and get my new DSLR taking some beautiful pictures out there. I actually bought skis and boots on Saturday. There went $700 but I have to learn to embrace the frigid Wisconsin winters somehow-at least this way I can be active. 


If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that I think there’s something in the water. Everytime I log on Facebook someone is now engaged or pregnant. At this rate my friends will have grandchildren before I’m engaged 😉 no but really, I’m kind of digging the single life. I can do what I want, when I want, how I want. 


If we were having coffee right now… I’d ask for good book recommendations. I’m just finishing up Allegiant and I really want to keep reading instead of watching hours and hours of tv. Don’t worry-I’ll still watch Scandal, Greys & Revenge {Revenge comes back Sunday… SO excited} 

If we were having coffee right now… I’d ask for your advice. I simply love getting my AM Crossfit session in and my PM weights. But I think signs of overtraining are starting to show up. How do you know you’re overdoing it? It’s just so hard to take a step back when I’m passionate about it & the happiest in the gym. 


If we were having coffee right now.. I’d tell you to go get a 60 minute massage the next chance you get. If I could afford it monthly I so would go. The first thing the therapist said at the end of the session is “I can tell you workout–you’re tight EVERYWHERE”… yeah I could have told you that. It was nice & relaxing though. 


If we were having coffee right now… I’d probably complain to you about how I only have 4 days off all of March. We have drill 3 times in 6 weeks. I originally had planned to take a couple days off but now that I’m going to Colorado I have no leave left to use up–but that time spent with friends in CO will be worth the stressful month that March will be. It’s going to be a long haul so this past weekend spent with friends, family & my dog was worth it. 


How was your weekend? Any big plans coming up? Book recommendations please!! 🙂

    Books! Anything and everything by Sarah Jio if you like mystery type books… Also if you liked Divergent/Hunger games, I read the Matched series which was pretty decent – didn’t like the ending though (similar to Divergent).
