Fukumoto Friday: Week 15


That’s kind of how I’ve summed up this week. Or, more accurately:

We've all had days...
We’ve all had days…

As I mentioned on Monday, this week was very topsy-turvy. With hubby writing a 6 (yes…6) HOUR exam on Tuesday night (someone bring that man some bourbon!), I changed my Tuesdayd workout this week to Monday. For the fellow runner’s out there: You know those really bad runs? The ones where your legs feel like they weigh about 3,000lbs, you’re heart feels like it’s going to stop beating and you wonder how the heck you ever ran a particular distance when you feel like you’re going to die before you even finish your first mile? I had one of those workouts on Monday. My word…I think I left my muscles at home. It. Was. Tough. Mentally and physically. It’s been a long time since I had a craptastic workout so I guess I was due. But I gave it my all so that’s what counts.

Tomorrow I finish up the phase and am hoping to nail those pistols! I can go partway down unassisted and mostly get myself back up. Not gonna lie, there is some very flamboyant arm flailing going on toward the end but I’m loving trying to do them without the TRX. I think I’ve found a new goal for myself :) That, and keep working on those pushups.

I also realized that I went through this entire phase without doing any burpees. Mwahahahahahaha!!! This of course means that when I get them next month, I will probably faint.

Next week is recovery week. So hoping to get to Joga on Wednesday. Fingers crossed baby-sitting works out! There’s a sandbag/Kettle bell extra class that I’d love to do but I have a functional movement re-assessment that same night. I think I’ll do better if my body isn’t dead (I’m reliving last month’s epic battle ropes gone wild right now…). Too bad because I really want to work on my swings and I love the sandbags. So versatile! I’m really hoping to see some big improvements from my initial assessment back in November. Wish me luck!

Happy Birthday Mr. O.

Well, Little Man, we made it. I’ll be honest, this past year, there were many times I wondered if we would survive each other. But we did. And here we are, celebrating your 3rd birthday. What a year it’s been for you. We navigated temper tantrums galore, speech delays and more time outs than I…

My 2015 Focus Words-being Intentionally Thankful

As always, I’m a little late to the party but I assure you, there’s good reason. I started thinking about focus words back in December and couldn’t settle on one and figured I just wouldn’t pick something for this year and instead, continue on with last year’s focus word of “Simplicity” and build off the…

Mayhem Monday: Admitting to my UnPinteresty Life

This week marks the busiest week of my year: Birthday week. I both look forward to it and dread it all at the same time. My boys’ birthdays are two days apart. That lends to a lot of celebrating. Two family get togethers, their actual birthdays and a feable and completely non-pinterest inspired birthday party…

Winter Blues and Jr. Obstacle Courses

Happy Wednesday! From the looks of things, winter has come back with a vengeance! We had snow most of the day yesterday and with it came lots and lots of ice. I was literally spinning my wheels and going nowhere while trying to get through an intersection. Good times. Thankfully, we all got where we…
