Typically my Wild Workout Wednesday posts are either running, CrossFit, or Paleo related, but today I’m bringing something a little different.
I want to give you a little run down of where I’m at right now, and where I’m going.
I’m so excited because I was interviewed for a podcast about the 50 Shades of Paleo. I loved talking about this topic with Jennifer from Wanderlust and Wellness, because this is exactly my philosophy. I can’t be strict Paleo 100% of the time–and that’s ok. Head over to this link to listen on iTunes, or on the website here…it was a great conversation and I’m hoping to inspire others to find a shade of Paleo that works for them.
I’m in my third week of the 6 week challenge and loving it. My goal going into the challenge was to simply get strong. So I didn’t weigh in or anything…I kind of wish I took note of my body fat percentage because I’d be interested to see how my composition changed. And I also regret not taking ‘before’ pictures. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to see and feel the difference though–it’s been two weeks and I already can! I’ll definitely be posting a wrap up when the challenge is over in the beginning of March.

Swinging some kettlebells tonight 💪🏻 Awesome workout of 21, 15, 9 Burpees, Russian Kettlebell Swings, and 1 minute planks. But the silent story here is the 2 minute push up test we did before the workout even started. I was able to get in 22 full push ups (no knees) before totally giving out. Shifting my mindset to STRONG. 👊🏻
I’ve been going to CrossFit at 6pm. That means I’m getting home around 7:15-7:30, which is bedtime for my girls. So Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are a bit later than I like, BUT like I said above–CrossFit is so worth it to me. My husband is super supportive because he went through the challenge himself and knows what a life-changer it is.
My day also starts really early with me either waking up to my alarm at 4:55am, or my little one anywhere between 5:00-5:30. I start my commute at 6am and spend my days teaching high school.
I know I’m preaching to the choir, but sometimes I feel like there is just not enough time.
Which brings me to my next update…
To be clear, I am not giving up on blogging! I love this blog for so many reasons…I love writing, I love the technical aspect of it, I love creating, and I love inspiring and spreading information to help others live productive, fit lives–I am going to keep doing all of that. It’s fulfilling to me.
But, after much thought, I have to say goodbye as a co-host of the Wild Workout Wednesday linkup! I love posting, but just can’t fulfill the obligation of supporting everyone with comments. I feel so guilty when I can’t make it to everyone who linked up with us–and there are so many of you!
This community is amazing and I’m so thankful for the support from my fellow bloggers over the years. I’ve been blogging seriously for almost 2 years now, and owe so much of my growth to your support.
The reason I stayed on as long as I did is because I was afraid that without the obligation, I wouldn’t post at all. But I’m at a place now where I know that I will–I have a lot to share and will continue to be there to support everyone in my blogger community.
Thanks again for all of your support! <3
