Wild Card Wednesday 3/28

Wednesdays are going to be the “anything goes” days. I’m feeling last night’s workout from CrossFit Santa Cruz (love that box!). The WOD was:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Kettle Bell Swings and ring dips. Rest 5 mins. 1 min AMRAP front squat. 

I used a 35# kettle bell, and did purple band pushups in 9:27. I did 18 front squats at 42#. Not great. Blah. I guess taking 3 weeks off from CF was not the way to go. Oh well, I’ll work my strength back up.

I saw a post the other day from Confessions of a (not-so) Domesticated Newlywed that I thought was pretty cute, so here goes: 

26 things you will probably never need to know about me: 

i'm the classy one in the middle...

A is for age: 27. Ask me again on the 31st and I’ll tell you 28 😉

B is for breakfast today: English tea. I’m not a big eater in the morning…

C is for currently craving: chocolate chip cookie dough

D is for dinner tonight: breakfast! Eggs over medium, whole grain toast, turkey sausage. 

E is for favorite type of exercise: CrossFit, running, step aerobics, Pilates, yoga, ballet, kickboxing… do I have to pick just one?! 

F is for an irrational fear: being kidnapped by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had a nightmare when I was 5 that this happened. Apparently I’ve never gotten over it. 


G is for gross food: mushrooms, olives, ginger

H is for hometown: Surf City, California! 

I is for something important: My family. Not just blood relatives, but my friends, too. Without them I’d just some weirdo talking to myself and the walls…

my son, Kael Desmond, and my grandpa, Desmond John ❤


J is for current favorite jam: “Start a Fire” by Ryan Star. 

K is for kids: My son, Kael Desmond, the light of my life ❤

poor guy got a lot of my genetics... ❤


L is for current location: NorCal!

M is for the most recent way you spent money: Shopping at Lululemon. Hey, it was for my birthday, I totally had an excuse!

N is for something you need: The brain capacity for Financial Accounting. I was so not meant for this…


O is for occupation: Personal training and group exercise teaching pay for my career: being a mom! 

P is for pet peeve: Oh, I got lots, but rude people take the cake. 


Q is for a quote: “No man can swim ashore while carrying his baggage” 

R is for random fact about you: I have a mole on the back of my thigh in the shape of a heart. I’ve had it checked out, and since it hasn’t changed shape and the edges are solid and the color is uniform, it’s safe! Yay!

S is for favorite healthy snack: carrots and edamame hummus

T is for favorite treat: If it’s got sugar in it, I’ll eat it. But if brownies are on the table, you better believe I’m going to those first! 


U is for something that makes you unique: aren’t we all unique…?

V is for favorite vegetable: Broccoli and green beans! But I really love all veggies =) 

W is for today’s workout: yoga and teaching ballet and Pilates

X is for X-rays you’ve had: skull, thoracic and cervical spine (twice), chest, both feet.


Y is for yesterday’s highlight: my son running through door yelling, “Mommy, I missed you!” (it had been 8 hours since I dropped him off at school…)

Z is for your time zone: Pacific, dude! 😉

So now hopefully I’ve provided you with some distraction from the dull drum known as Wednesday 🙂 And hopefully you didn’t lose too many brain cells in the process… 😉 

What are your plans this weekend? How far in advance do you typically make plans?
