Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one}  Thank-you for the encouraging comments and understanding regarding my limited ability to blog lately.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with my recent push at work and I'm hoping that blogging will become a regular occurrence for me in the near future.

{two} I experienced a HUGE breakthrough at CrossFit this weekend.  I jumped on a tire!  Not just any old tire - one of the HUGE ones - like for a tractor.  It's about 30 inches I believe. Now to put this in perspective...when I started CrossFit about five months ago, I could barely jump on a small box that was about 15 inches high.  That's an increase of about 15 inches in my vertical jump!!! I did 50 tire jumps and it felt amazing.  (I'm sure this sounds incredibly silly - but as a Crossfitter, I'm learning to appreciate the small victories!)

{three} Grad school is in full swing.  It's my first full week of classes.  My schedule will now be *insane*:
Monday: Work (From Home) 7am - 8am
               Class 9am - 12pm
               Work 12:30pm - 6:30pm
               CrossFit - 7pm

Tuesday: CrossFit - 6am
               Work 8am - 6pm

Wednesday: Work (From Home) 7am - 8am
                    Class 9am - 12pm
                    Work 12:30pm - 7pm

Thursday: CrossFit - 6am
                Work 8am - 6pm

Friday: CrossFit - 6am
            Work 8am - 6pm

Now when/where I'm supposed to get homework and required reading done is beyond me.  Poor hubby...I hope he isn't too neglected over the upcoming months!

{four}  I can't believe I"m saying this - but I think I might actually like this new schedule.  If my body would just get used to waking up so early, I might have a decent shot at making this work and find that I am significantly more productive during the week than I have been in the past.  I'm hoping to utilize my lunch breaks on Tues/Thur/Fri to complete homework assignments so that I don't have to spend the entire weekend studying.  But we shall see!

{five} Is it just me, or is everyone pregnant these days?  So many of my favorite bloggers are pregnant and so many of my real life friends are pregnant.  Did I miss the memo???  Just in case anyone is wondering - baby plans have been put on hold for the next two years while I finish my education.

That's all for now!  Hope you're having a great start to the work week!!

Glad you're enjoying your new schedule! I really wish we had a Crossfit class around my area. I want to change up my workouts BAD.

It's not just you. Everyone I know IN REAL LIFE is either preg or trying. UGH!

Enjoy the morning schedule - it's how I like to run my schedule, especially with work and grad school. It can be rough, but you'll do just fabulously with it!

It's not just you! I think everyone in the whole universe is pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or wanting to be pregnant. Ugh!

Ashley said...

I LOVE having full schedules like that -- it keeps me motivated and going when i HAVE to keep up with stuff that's going on.

Congratulations on your Crossfit breakthrough!!

EVERYONE seems to be getting pregnant -- we are waiting a couple more years so you don't have to worry about me taking that step yet haha

Rissy said...

I seem to be a little late to the party as I am a new follower, but what is CrossFit?? I love any and all kinds of workouts.

EVERYONE is pregnant... I guess it's just you and me who aren't. Good for me because I am not married, and good for you because look at that schedule!

You have such a busy schedule, but at least you're embracing it! :D

SO many of my real life friends and bloggers that I read are pregnant too...:S

Erica said...

I seriously think its the year to be pregnant bloggers,real life friends, i have seen a lot of pregnant famous people. It seems like every week it's someone new.

Rebekah said...

You are a busy, busy lady! I'm glad you like your schedule though! You will do great!

Everyone is pregnant now, or getting pregnant. Ha! I'm working on it!

Stephanie said...

I must praise you for just DOING crossfit! I've always been an athlete but after hearing about it the idea of Crossfit scares the crap out of me!

Good job girly!!

Megan said...

Ahhhh, sounds like you have a crazy schedule!! I totally agree that everyone is blog land and in my real life!! It's kinda giving me baby fever! I think the hubby would kill me though!! Haha!

Brittany said...

That is so awesome about Crossfit! You have really come a long way :)

I'm going to start having an early morning schedule as well. Let's see how it works out.

EVERYONE is pregnant! Including all the celebs! It's crazy. Not happening anytime soon for me though :)

Tamara Nicole said...

Good job with crossfit! That's awesome:-) Hope things are well!

LittleMissDreamer said...

I totally agree!! Everyone around me seems to be pregnant! I just did a post on how I'm getting baby fever because of all of these people!! haha

Your motivation is great! I could never get up at 6am to work out and then have a full day of work and school ahead of me! Keep it up girl!

Bryan and Chelsey's Moss Moments said...

Soooooooooooooooooooooo glad you're back! ;)

Sonya said...

I completely agree with #5! And don't feel alone, we are on at least a 2 year wait time because my husband has gone back to school! There's just no way on my teacher's salary and the fact that I would not be working for several weeks obviously! It will be worth the wait!

Tyly said...

Congratulations on your huge accomplishment! It's the best feeling ever to accomplish something that once seemed so out of reach.

And yes, everyone is pregnant but us. No babies for at least a year here! :)

Ashley said...

ummmm hi. your blog is seriously CUTE. I found it off of Simplicity in Baltimore. I love this Miscellany thing you guys got goin on!!!

d.a.r. said...

There must be something in the water--I swear to goodness, everyone is preggers!!!

I love my early morning schedule. It sucks getting out of bed and I am a royal biatch for the first thirty minutes, but then I feel so good the rest of the day, have a bunch more energy and have a free evening to run errands, clean the house, hang out with the hubs, etc.

Young, Fabulous, Newlywed
