Morning and happy Friday! I’m pumped to begin a three-day weekend in just a few hours!! What are your plans? I’m headed to the Patriot Center to watch the CrossFit Mid-Atlantic Regionals this weekend and of course, I’m SO excited! I plan to take my camera and report back with all the details Monday! I’m pumped for one of our very own – Linsey Kokal to be competing! She’s going to kill it!!
In other news, I’ve been obsessed with Lululemon lately and this Lulu Addict blog! I don’t own any Lululemon gear (it’s so dang expensive!) but of course, I want everything!! These Wunder Under crops (in blue below) were the inspiration for today’s Fashion Friday post! They’re reversible which I think is pretty cool!
I also want to share some links from around the web! I’ve been clicking around like crazy, reading so many great articles on everything from weddings to CrossFit technique!
First up, my friend Lauren from Every Last Detail released “What a wedding costs (when you use professionals,” (infographic) this week. I think it’s an extremely valuable resource for any new bride trying to determine her budget. You should check it out!
I also enjoyed reading 10 Tips for the Female CrossFitter, from The Box Life magazine. One tip is to work on your grip! Apparently men have a grip twice as strong as women, and I have to say, my own grip feels pretty weak! I’m not exactly sure how one goes about strengthening their grip, but I assume more pull-up practice helps.
Did you see this blueberry chia seed jelly recipe? I want to try to make it this weekend!
A few of you asked me about my meal prep last week. I got the instructions from one of my favorite fitness gurus on Instagram, Mankofit. Here’s a link to her one-step meal prep!
How Your Day Job Affects Your Fitness (Video) – This is so interesting to me! You might of seen on Instagram that I setup a standing desk in my office. So far I’m loving it! I’ll post more about this and other fitness things I try to do (bring to) work… I’m curious, what’s something fitness-related you try to do at work? Our resident fit mom, Karlye, did the farmer’s carry with water jugs at work this week! Haha. I was lucky enough to see the picture – maybe she’ll share it with us all next week!
What fitness things do you try to do at work?
Do you wear Lululemon?
Are you going to any regional CrossFit competitions? Have you been following the Games?
