Chicago winter is officially here. With the wind-chill below zero, I will be staying inside thank you! After running some errands out in the cold this morning, I spent most of the day bundled up on the couch with a good book and warm coffee. And lots of it!
My brother gave us these fabulous Chicago Chicago Transit Authority coffee mugs for Christmas! The Loyola red line L stop for me (a proud alum!) and the Davis purple line L stop for Will (near his alma mater Northwestern). I love these mugs, I think they are the cutest idea and lately with the cold weather, we have been getting a lot of use out of them!
Tonight Will and I made our return to Rowfit Chicago! We had taken a short break from Crossfit with moving to our new place, traveling for the holidays, and trying to get our schedules back in check. Tonight’s workout:
- 5 jumping jacks
- 5 air squats
- 5 mountain climbers
- 5 jumping squats
10 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
- 7 deadlifts (185/120) – I did a weak load of 95#
- 7 dumb bell push press (35/20) – I did 12# dumb bells
- 5 dead hang pull ups
- 5 ring dips
Not being at crossfit for a while, I have to say, it. kicked. my. butt. I will certainly be sore tomorrow!
Back to the couch for the Biggest Loser! I’ve also been reading A Stolen Life about the abduction of Jaycee Dugard and I cannot put it down! I’m hoping to finish it before bed!
