#Humpday motivation on this #WarriorWednesday from @guns_n_weights showing off our design from last month and that killer smile 👌🏻
All October packages have been shipped and I hope everyone is excited!! 👍🏻
Do you ever wake up and just know it's going to be a great day? I decided to wheel my dust-collecting spin bike out to the yard and catch the sunrise, drink my coffee, and of course spin! I used the @onepeloton app for the first time to guide me through the workout and it helped me get so much more out of the 30 min than I would've on my own. From the moment I sat in the saddle and just took in the fresh air, I knew that today, I'd be able to tackle the pile of errands/stuff I've been too tired or overwhelmed to do. 💪🏽
The accomplishment I'm most excited about today is finding a new gym close to the house that has a really incredible childcare facility/staff. I've been repeatedly disappointed with the quality of care in the child watch at LA Fitness, and the stress of dealing with it was making it tough to get workouts in during the day.
Luisa and I were both so pleased with the @bayclub today and their wonderful childcare staff that we signed up on the spot! She even happily pushed back nap time to stay and play while I got in a quick lift. It's such a relief having a safe, engaging, and welcoming place to bring her while I workout. 🙏🏽 Hope you all have a happy #Humpday , too!

Two-A-Day Tuesday. Been a good minute since I've gone to the gym, did shoulders and arms and then went climbing afterwards. Figured I'd check out the new #NOBL on St.Claude. I did a V3 which felt pretty good considering I haven't climbed in probably a good 2 months.
For all you haters and nay sayers and Crossfit scorners😜: I just pushed my minivan nearly half a mile through my neighborhood because the good ole swagger wagon decided she was tired. Guess all those heavy sled pushes at the gym paid off. #5 & #6 helped as well. So proud of my strong kiddos. They took it as a challenge and when we got
To that 2% incline, we persevered. #4 steered and #3 drove behind with her flashers. I was a little worried about #4 being behind the wheel (we all know what an awesome driver she is), but she got us there safely. I think I’m ok with her driving 5 mph. 👍🏽 Oh, and to the two dudes in my hood that just stood and stared whist I was pushing my van with two small children, Thanks a bunch. 👌 We must’ve just looked like we were out for an evening stroll. Mauri captured the intense job she had steering us along. 😂 Oh, this is also another reason why Hope and I beat @clemdizzle42 and @yunjoon7170 during the sled push competition. 😏#functionalfitness#crossfitstrong#wod#strongmomstrongkids#pleasedontbedeadswagger#chilvaryisdead#mysonsweretaughtbetter#mo6#crossfitmom#crossfitkids#crossfit#momswholift#twoadays
It took only one second for Google to solve my mystery of "why does my dog smell like fish?" Yes...most of you probably already know what it is, but for those that don't, let me enlighten you... Apparently, smaller dogs need to have their anal glands "internally expressed" once a month (and not just externally expressed by the Groomer). They are basically pockets of smelly fluid with a fishy odor and when the dog poops they should express themselves naturally. But if the poop isn't solid enough, they won't be expressed so they will fill up and start to smell. 😝
So here is how my day went: woke up, confine fish-dog in sanitary place, play keep away with kids and dog, put kid on bus, call vet, go to vet, get glands expressed, feed us, wash dog, blow dry dog, chase dog, blow dry again, dog finds mud, rinse feet, blow dry feet, change a pull-up, chiro appt., pet store to get dog boots, office store for dividers, home, dog boots come right off, make late snack, daughter off bus, feed kids, sit down, dog walks over.....and I smell the fish smell again. 💆
So the dishes are piled up in the sink again (thank goodness it's a leftover night!) and now I have twice as much laundry to do thanks to Mr. Coconut.
This is when I would normally throw in the towel, hit the couch, and call it a night. But I got a secret weapon that helps me through these days yall. It's not wine and yes it's good for you. This is life, some days are crap (literally lol) but we need to enjoy even the crap ones to be grateful for the good ones. I want to enjoy all my days left on this earth so I got this special MOM JUICE and on my crazy days I drink TWO. I even got this probiotic that I call my "happy pill" that keeps me balanced mentally and I know that if I didn't take it daily that this mama woulda lost it and thrown a tantrum today! So if you need some mom juice too...you know where to find me😘 #momjuice 🍷 #momjuice#twoadays#twopinkdrinkkindofday#probiotics#healthymom#crazyday#wahm#bossmom#bossmomlife
