Hodge Podge....

And the winner of the CrossFit games for the 2nd year in a row is....Rich Froning! I have to admit I've had a little crush on Rich since I first started doing CrossFit. ;-)
I love the fact that he is a Christian and not ashamed of it!

So anyways, I just had to note that I had a lady tell me at the gym today that I was "skinny as a rail." Well, thank you very much, I really appreciate that! Exactly the look I'm going for....NOT. 

It's hard for me not to let comments like that get to me. I don't want to look skinny, dang it! Uuggghhh! I may be having some photos taken this weekend, but as soon as that is over with it's back to stuffing my face again.

Sooo....I hope everyone had a great weekend! One of my cousins got married Saturday, so that was all that our weekend consisted of. It was good to see some of my family since we haven't gotten together in a while. Here are a few pics:

My hot date!

My cousin and 2nd cousin-they are the cutest things ever!

My brother, finally smiling normal :)
My cousin Landen was tearing up the dance floor! He was definitely the entertainment of the night!

  1. OK, I would definitely NOT call you skinny!! You are beautiful, muscular and strong! Don't take it to heart.

  2. You look so beautiful at the wedding! and i know exactly what you mean about the comments...I am a small frame too and it takes me SO LONG to put on muscle (and its a mental challenge trying to grow while remaining lean ESPECIALLY during the summer!) ....but I actually always remind myself what YOU have said in previous posts...how building muscle and being fit is a JOURNEY...so it takes time, patience, commitment, and dedication! SO thank YOU for reminding me of that and also thank you for your honesty about how some comments get to you! because it helps me relate...that we are all NOT perfect and HUMAN.. we have insecurities..but its how we overcome them that really matters! :)

    1. Thanks!!
      There are times when the negative thoughts and insecurites take over....but you can't let it stop you! Yup, we're all human! I have a LOT of insecurites!
      I understand you completely because it's hard for me to gain muscle....I think if most women trained as long and hard as I have for the past 15 years, they'd be a lot bigger than me!! But I can just do the best with what I have :)

  3. Those kids are so cute! I don't like those comments either, but now that I'm 119 pounds instead of 107 for so many years, I hear less of those. What are your thoughts on taking creatine for building muscles/looking bigger? I'd like to try it.

    1. I've been taking it for the past few months. I think it is a great supplement to take if you're wanting to build!
