I've Made It To Wednesday...
Yeah. That's about how it's going here. My boys are down with a terrible cold and ear infections. The youngest has that awful barking croup. And I feel like a bus ran me over. Oh...and did I mention why?
Forget the cold that's lurking in my upper respritory system...I've become a Crossfitter! That's right! I joined Crossfit. It's been over a week now, and I am able to say that I'm alive. I don't have a muscle that doesn't ache, but I am alive. Let's see...Monday I ran 400 meters, completed 20 hollows, 20 jumping lunges - that was the warmup. Then I did a row for 500 meters. Then I completed 25 pushups, 50 situps, 50 supermans, 50 dips, 50 box-jumps, and 20 turkish 'get-ups'... Then Tuesday ...I threw the 10lb medicine ball 80 times, did 80 squats, 80 'V's, 28 sumo dead lifts, and 30 burpees...(don't ask what those are...let's just say they are a form of torture that personal trainers wield expertly.)
Okay...so I have been caught smiling about it all. Once I finish, I feel great - well, it's that and the hot shower and hot toddy I have when I get home - in that order.
Progress continutes on the NaNo front. I'll pass 30K today if all goes well. Woo-hoo! J.R. Pearse-Nelson and I have finalized plans for the 12 Days Of Christmas Reading and the email to authors is about to go out! A great big thank-you to all the wonderful authors and bloggers who've expressed interest and willingness to join and/or post our link! You guys are fantastic!
Now, I've got to get my buns back to work. I've fallen behind over the last few days with my poor boys' colds.
