Color Blind

Do you look at Facebook or Instagram first thing when you wake up in the morning?

I do.  It isn't a habit I am proud of because I don't give myself a chance to really wake up before I let the world in.  I am quitting actually. No more checking social media first thing...

Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 14: Deployment Trimesters

I tried a cup of decaf coffee this morning.  It still tastes terrible.

Prior to pregnancy, I was a coffee fanatic.
I drank it black and often.  About...

I just got back from CrossFit class.  It was a perfect way to start my week.  I am still a little sick, but I had another really good night sleep last night so I am definitely on the upswing.  It felt good to sweat.

Strict Pull-up Program pullups strength Dec 10, 2018

So although I love pull-ups now, I had never done one for most of my adult life.  Even when I was serving in the Navy, I couldn't even do 1.  I've currently been doing 5 x 5 strict pull-ups at least once/ week.  My goal, if my body allows, is to maintain my strict pull-up...

Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 7:

I am sick.   I think it is just a cold, but I don't feel awesome.

I think my body has been teetering back and forth with "almost sick" since my Arizona trip.  Lots of airport people plus a few nights of crappy sleep.

Sinuses hurt, throat and ears...
