50 Day Push-up Challenge

Guess what? I have today off work!

Expect two posts from me today. I’m in that kinda mood. The next one will be about a Make Up For Ever Holiday 2012 kit, so stay tuned for that one later on.

Well this is funny. I didn’t go to CrossFit at all this week, so I didn’t call it my CrossFit journal re-cap. However I’m still keeping up with the 50 day push-up challenge.It’s starting to get difficult now.

I’m on day 12 and I don’t know how I’m remembering to do them, but I do remember — I am fully dressed and ready to head into work. I figured I’d better do them then and there, and not when I get home and most likely forget about it. I tell ya, if you’re ever kind of chilly in the mornings — do 10 push-ups. It’ll warm ya right up. Whoo wee.

My CrossFit coach is proud of me ;)

Wednesday is soccer nights, but this past Wednesday was exceptionally busy for me. I went to the climbing gym after work, to put in some volunteer hours to get a free month membership and right after that I drove across the city and somehow managed to get to soccer on time. I forgot how long it takes to get back into the swing of things. The last two games I’ve felt like I’ve played much better. More going after it, than waiting for things to fall to me. Know what I mean? I didn’t get home until 10pm that evening, without supper! It was a long, fun day though.

What are your fitness plans for this week?

Popcorn < Movies

Anyone who knows me, knows that I will never say no to going to a movie. I don’t care what type of movie I see in the theaters, all I need is a bag of popcorn and I’m content.

Sometimes, when Scott’s away at work – I don’t even make myself dinner. I actually have popcorn. That’s terrible to admit, but I really really enjoy it. A lot. Clearly.

In the span of 5 days on the airplane and while I was back home, I watched three movies. On the airplanes I watched: The Vow (nearly cried), The Help (also nearly cried) and I went to the theaters with my best friend from back home, Trevor. We saw The Avenger’s.

I’m not sure that I’ve spoken of Trevor much on my website. I don’t think I talked about him here much mainly because I thought he didn’t read my blog! Well folks. Here is me and my best bud.

This photo is a few years old, but still a goodie. We’re at the local climbing gym back home.

Same night, both of us dancing. We had a “private party” at the climbing gym one year for his birthday and another guys university graduation. :)

Back to my post about movies though.

Apparently it did really well in the theaters, and everyone on twitter had been raving about it. So of course, I didn’t mind going. However it wasn’t what I expected it to be at all. I was excited that Ironman was in it, he’s a funny character. I don’t want to go into much detail about the movie, since my boyf Scott had no idea what the movie entailed and I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone.

I do want to let you know that you should probably watch the previous movies before hand like: Ironman, Ironman 2 (there’s a two, right?), Thor, Captain America annnnd…. what other one was there, if any?

I was semi-lost, thanks to Trev for talking to me throughout the movie explaining things for me, ha!

Have you guys seen this movie yet? If not, will you?
