This is too funny because of all the Crossfit lingo we learn to love!
I post a lot about Crossfit because that's what I love and part of my everyday!!!
*By no means am I making fun of Zumba by posting this as many people I know enjoy it! When it comes to fitness, I am a huge believer in doing what you love! Obviously, this is going to vary from person to person. Take it with a grain of salt.
For the second year in a row, Pfizer partnered with the Arthritis Foundation as a proud sponsor of the Jingle Bell Run. It was the 26th annual run/walk in downtown Seattle, and my work colleagues and besties arrived bright and early to participate in all the fun!
We were encouraged to dress in holiday costumes ...
so festive socks it was! Thanks Target!
It was a beautiful down-pour kind of day, and rained the entire day.
We looked like drowned RATS!
Although, running in the rain was fun and for a great cause to bring awareness to arthritis!
Speaking of working out ... I started my crossfit workout with a 800m sprint and crashed and burned on the gravel/cement as I weaved from the road to the sidewalk, and I do mean COMPLETELY flung forward and fell, almost on my face, but caught my fall thankfully with my right hand.
This little sucker STILL isn't healed and is an opened wound a week later. Next time, I will get a DNF (did not finish) next to my name on the white board because the fall within the first minutes and continuing with burpees didn't help the injury. It this has been really difficult trying to keep it clean and covered, so heal faster. Sadly, I am pretty sure four layers of skin were shed from the palm of my hand.
I woke up Monday to my sister-in-law's Facebook message:
Arrie: Just finished all of my Christmas shopping online!
Love "Cyber Monday!"
It gave me anxiety just reading it ....
1. Completed her shopping??
2. Did it all online??
3. Cyber Monday??
*I texted her immediately asking what I was missing out on. I wanted to know exactly what she bought to see if I needed any of it too! Haha, I can't miss out on a good deal now, so I started just browsing the web.
Thanks to online shopping and my diligent efforts from the couch, I have created a Christmas list that is obviously one of a married lady who wants practical things for the house!! Like new home bar furniture :)
Santa, if you're reading this would you please happily bring me this
I finally got to experience the hype of Top Golf over Thanksgiving!
Only three locations in the US, if you live in Alexandria, Chicago, or Dallas ... you must check it out if you haven't already. It's a golf range that has computerized microchips in every ball that track your shots accuracy and distance while awarding points by hitting targets ranging from 20 - 250 yards away. So, it's competitive AND fun for golfers or people like myself who have never even HIT a ball from a tee!!!!!
Brothers together again!
4 plus hours of hitting balls, blisters, laughter, and competitiveness!
My sweet mother-in-law and sister-in-law
My handsome blue-eyed guy
And if there was a photo to sum up our holiday together ...
It would be this one! Lots and lots of fun
Thanksgiving with the Smith's was delightful, of course!!! I am so very thankful for all the quality time we had as it doesn't happen as often as often as we would like with us all living in separate states.
The holiday was so special thanks to Ryan and April for hosting us all,
and Mark and Robin for always being supportive parents!
