Woo Hoo! It’s Friday! And I’m aaaaaaaaaaaaalmost starting to feel normal again. Just in time for the weekend Garrett and I celebrated the gateway to the weekend last night by doing workout 13.1 of the CrossFit Games Open. How many of you are participating? HOW AWFUL WAS THAT OHMYGOD. But also, so super fun! I ended up getting 126 reps and of course instantly was like “Aw I could have done better.” But you know what? WHATEVER. It’s for fun and I “enjoyed” myself, and I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks of workouts bring!
Plus the glass of wine I had after the workout tasted super great. Have I mentioned how much I love my gym? Now…onto some links.
*Since we’re talking about it, here are Four Reasons Every CrossFitter Should Participate In the CrossFit Games Open. I agree with every single one.
*I was really touched by this post about Creating Community After The Lonely Years. I’ve met so many great people and dear friends because of this website and the internet. Sometimes I still can’t believe that because I never really thought I’d be a “find friends on the internet” kind of person, but I feel super grateful that I have.
*I keep thinking I need to incorporate more organ meats in my diet but I JUST. CAN’T. EAT. THEM. I came across this idea for The Easiest Way To Eat Liver recently and I may try that. (OHMAHGAWD. LIVER.)
*I couldn’t agree more with the sentiments in this post. I think a fulfilled life is full of risk taking.
*Garrett is OBSESSED with Campari and I am…well, not. So much. I bookmarked this list of new ways to use Campari, so I’m going to see if I can find a Campari cocktail we both love this Spring.
*My friend Erica wrote about money this week but in the end I also think it touched on more than that. It was a nice reminder to me to not only be grateful for Garrett, but for our partnership. My mom has said many times that the thing she misses most about losing my dad is losing her partner. When you are bickering about the right way to do chores around the house or how to spend money it can be easy to lose sight of the fact that it is an absolute luxury to have someone to argue with about these things.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
