Today's crossfit workout..."Angie"

So alot of you already know about my new adventures in trying to get my fat butt in shape. My brother in law scott has been the one showing everyone how to do it. The way crossfit seperates all the different workouts is by giving them names...some are after women and some are mens names. The men names are names of actual men that have died in the line of duty, be it military, firefighters or policemen. I think the ones named after women have got to be someones ex-girlfriends or something because I swear the workouts named after women are absolutely horrible horrible horrible. Today we did a workout named "Angie"....actually we only did half of it because it was a death wish. A full angie is this:

100 pull ups
100 push ups
100 sit ups
100 squats

we luckly only did half of that...even half was difficult. Since I don't know many women that can do an actual pull up, we do jumping pull ups...that is still hard. My goal is to be able to do pull ups with no problem and run a mile without stopping. I have also set goals to walk at least two miles a day. I am starting to get really addicted to this working out stuff. My brother in law scott did the full angie. Hes nuts..and he does real pull ups. he did it all in 32 minutes. CRAZY. I attached a photo of me doing my pull ups...hahahhah i wish.

Husband of the year!!!

So I can't believe that I forgot to blog about I am going to do it now because I think its blog worthy..:) A couple of weeks ago Josh found out that another one of my favorite bands was coming to town...The Killers. When Josh told me that they were coming, I almost wet my wait, I think I actually did, just a little though. Anyways. The tickets went on sale on a Friday at 10 am. That Saturday evening Josh and the kids and I were driving out to mesa to visit with our friends Isaac and Laura, and I realized that I had forgotten to get tickets. I started to get really sad....then I looked over at Josh and he had a little grin on his face. Could it be? Did Josh get tickets? Yes he did. I think I had a huge smile on my face the rest of the evening. I couldn't believe that my fabulous husband took time out of his extremely busy day at work on friday and bought us tickets. I am still in shock. The concert is on April 16th. I can't wait to go....I will for sure give everyone an update on how it went.

He made it!!!!!!

Well yesterday Josh and I attended a meeting to discuss what Braden's needs are as far as schooling. The psychologist and speech pathologist both felt that Braden was well qualified for preschool services. I was super excited to hear the great news. I think I am more excited to know that he scored in normal range for everything but his speech...which helps me feel good to know that there is NOTHING else wrong with our little guy...just a little speech delay. He will be attending school tuesdays thru friday for two and a half hours. I requested that he be in a very structured classroom because I felt that it will help him with his tantrums...they agreed with that. Kids really need structure and its hard when you have a normal life with things to do....I am sure most of you mom's agree. Last night we went and bought him his first backpack. I am so excited for him, but on the other hand I am a bit sad that he is growing up so fast. I know mom's always go through that when kids start kindergarten. If anyone has any advice on how to "cope" with your baby growing up, please share :)

Brother in law for sale!!!

So my brother in law scott just recently graduated from the fire academy. While in the academy he endured some pretty crappy stuff. To be a firefighter you have to be in pretty darn good shape. To get the new recruits in shape, they were required to do a work out that is called "crossfit". Now my sister julie and I decided, hey we can use a little work out, lets try it out. Lets just say that scott is now captain blood in my book....thats why he is up for sale. I think he is trying to kill us. I just recently learned that this is a work out that the navy seals do.....I now know why, when in elementary school was asked "what would you like to be when you grow up", I never thought hhhmmmm....either a firefighter or a navy seal. Instead I would say I wanted to be something like an ice cream tester or bubble bath tester.
Julie and I started this work out last week...just on the days that scott is off luckly, and it was pretty horrible. I looked really funny doing normal things like going to the bathroom, or climbing up stairs. I was so sore. This week was alot better...running was easier and sit ups and push ups also. My goal is to be able to run a mile without stopping. I haven't had a good workout in about 10 years...hence the large butt.
This week our friend april joined us....then today it was so awesome, there were six of us total!!! Some really fun girls from the ward decided to be tortured with us. It makes it so much more fun with people to endure it with you.
If you want to know more about this insane abuse of a workout, they have a website that shows people demonstrating all the different workouts. I believe its check it out its pretty funny.

p.s. Scott really isnt for sale....I wouldnt sell him for a million trillion bucks...he's the coolest brother in law ever. besides, he's not mine to sell :)
