Gym Withdrawals

Little dogs dreams almost came true this morning. There was a squirrel on the porch. Hunt mode initiated. But dreams quickly faded. The trespasser quickly climbed the side of our building like a bat out of hell. Here’s some footage of the account…

I’m really getting antsy over here. I haven’t been to CrossFit in 4 weeks due to equine duties. Prior to the last four weeks, I had one solid week at CrossFit after I was off for four weeks as well. So if you do the math, that’s one week at CrossFit in the last 9 weeks. I am NOT OK WITH THAT. My love handles are reappearing. Things are not as toned as they used to be. And I’m getting a thigh gap again. ::insert disgusted face here:: But really, thigh gaps are NOT COOL. I worked hard in the gym for 3.5 years to beef my legs up and get rid of mine. It is not sexy. Anybody else think the thigh gap is really not sexy? I also worked hard for my two teeny little abs at the bottom of my rib cage. Can’t see those bad boys anymore. Here I am two years ago, probably in the best shape since I started CrossFit.

But I’m SO EXCITED TO GO BACK TO TOMORROW! Holy toledo I never thought the day would come. I am going to be DRAGGING ASS, but I cannot watch the disuse atrophy happening right before my eyes anymore. They’ve already posted the workout (“The Chief”) and I am SUPER stoked about it.

Here is an at home version of “The Chief” that I thought of for you guys so you can do it at home or your non-CrossFit gym!!


As many rounds as possible in 3 minutes of:

3 Power Cleans (35lb dumbbell in each hand or whatever weight you can handle)
6 Push Ups
9 Air Squats

Rest 1 minute between rounds
5 Rounds Total


If you don’t know how to power clean, YouTube has some great videos that are super helpful for the correct form.

Don’t forget to check out our shop while you’re at it! We have all sorts of great gifts for that special someone 😉 like this gorgeous blue druzy necklace.
