one of my biggest fitness inspirations, Alli Vasquez, is co-owner of CrossFit Fulshear! I'm incredibly excited for her and was honored to have been invited to their Get Real event yesterday morning. she is so passionate about sharing her purpose with others and such a humble, sweet woman.

there was Zumba indoors, and a boot camp happening outside.  i planned to do both before i realized they were happening at the same time!  so after a few songs i stepped outside for some team circuit training. i've always seen the row machine at the gym and never used it...until yesterday.

the trainers coached us through a combo of kettle bell swings, high knees, walking weighted lunges, rowing, mountain climbers, and then we flipped a few tires. fun, fun.

i grabbed a quick snack outta my bag as i had a full morning of training ahead of me in addition to this event.  i had a crunchy nectarine right after boot camp, and some chicken breast chunks, carrots, and grape tomatoes for later.  then, Alli hopped on the bullhorn cause it was time....

i see that acronym aaaaaall over instagram on some of the fitness pages i follow. it stands for Workout Of the Day. ours was 1 min of the following exercises 3 times straight, no breaks:

  • wall ball squats

  • kettle bell swings

  • toe touch sit ups

  • ball slams

  • row machine

after each coach explained the exercises i was all like, 'but where are the muscle ups? handstand push ups? cleans?' bwhahahaha!  yeah, i am definitely not ready for all that stuff, but those are the moves i think of whenever i hear the words Cross Fit. one of the trainers graciously recorded some footage of me in action:

i had to head back to Houston to train one of our 6 Pack USA clients and spotted this baby on the way to my car. taking pics of cars is so not my thing but when it comes to Vettes...i couldn't help it! isn't she everything!? looked like it was about to transform into an autobot or something #chills

fueling up and eating with my hands cause i forgot my fork!  i used two kinds of Weber Seasoning (from Walmart) on the chicken breasts: Beer Can Chicken and Garlic Sriracha. i hope you spent your weekend doing something you enjoyed too!

Q: why do you cross fit?? why haven't you tried it? what do you like (or dislike) about it?
