ootww and a barf inducing #CrossFit WOD

How in the h-e-two sticks is it Friday already? And pay day!

Last night was busy as heyyyy. I went to CrossFit and immediately drove home once it was over (barf inducing WOD last night. I’ll tell you all about it later).  I didn’t barf. But I felt like I wanted to because I wanted to finish. So, I drove home and packed up Alfie’s belongings, scooped him up and headed in my car for a little drive to meet my CEO and her 10 mth old boxer puppy to go for a walk.

Well, wouldn’t you know, Alfie had to poop REALLY bad? Little nugget couldn’t hold it in, and luckily I had a towel laid down on my seat (because I love my car so much and didn’t want it covered in his fur) he took a dump right on the darn friggen towel. I was so shocked he did this, I was yelling “AH AH! Ah AH!” (his command for “No”). I pulled over onto the side of the road and scooped it all up in a little plastic bag and rushed it to the nearest garbage can on the street.

I think he could tell I was really peeved off because he didn’t whine or cry the entire ride there. He’s usually a very nervous dog on car rides and doesn’t know where the heck we’re taking him.

The walk? OH the walk on the other hand was interesting. He didn’t go after the boxer, but he stuck by my side the entire time whining and getting “huffy” (he makes weird noises) at me since I was told to ignore him. We’re trying to socialize this Pomeranian of ours and it’s taking a lot of work lol.

Anyhoo. The week flew by. To be honest, I didn’t want to get up this morning and I hit snooze twice and ended up finally getting out of bed at 7:40. I like to usually get up around 6:50-7:00 to get chores done (dishes from previous night) out of the way before heading into work. But I didn’t want to do that either last night, or apparently this morning.

I went to CrossFit four days in a row this week Mon-Thurs, and I’m kinda wondering if I should go again tonight. 5x seems kinda nutso. But I have nothing else planned for the long weekend, and they’ll be closed lol.

Man. I’m still doing okay with paleo but once in a while I have those chocolate mini eggs, or something chocolatey like that. ANd I get these sharp twisty pains in my stomach. BAD cramps like I’ve never experienced before. They last for shots of 30 seconds, then moves to another area. That goes on for about 10 minutes. I suppose the little workers in my stomach are all strong, trying to kill the bad sugar in my stomach. Right? That’s my theory on it anyway.

I’m multi-tasking. Eating my breakfast, uploading it to instagram and writing a blog post in the a.m. at 8:30 in the morn. Go me.


Have a great Friday/long weekend. I’m sure I’ll be back here at some point over the weekend. You know how it is.

All of my OOTWW (outfit of the work week) pieces have been recycled so to speak. I was feeling lazy Sunday night and didn’t want to think of any new pairings. So I went through all of my OOTWW posts, looked through the images and grabbed the outfits from months ago and paired them together for this week. I’m sure you all really care. But there ya go, sometimes I cheat like that.

Some outfits work so well together that I consider them my uniform. If I’m going out anywhere unexpected and I have no idea what to wear, I gravitate towards those type of outfits. I personally think that’s a brilliant idea myself and love having these uniforms to go to. For instance my safe outfit this winter that I’ve worn quite a bit was this outfit (see Friday) and this outfit (see Tuesday).

Want to know how I plan what I’m going to wear throughout the week? I’ve written a post back in December on how I get everything together for the week. Check it out!

Now, onto this week’s OOTWW:

Are you guys interested in seeing what I’ve been wearing to climbing and crossfit? Should I do an OOTD for those posts and include them in here each Friday as well? I don’t think I’ll be doing them for every time I go to exercise, since I feel like it’s a lot of the same outfits. Either way, I’d like to hear your thoughts and get some input!

How I Style…

Well, National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo for short) is on its last week and a  half, and I’m still going strong with all of my posts.

Hope you enjoyed last weeks first edition of How I Style: Yellow Cardigans. This week I’ll be showing you how I’ve styled my white cardigan’s for the past year and a half.

There’s a ton of outfits I really don’t like in this one. But there’s a few that stand out to me. I like paring it with the white flowy top (as you can see in the top row of photos). Which white cardigan outfit is your favorite? I think mine is in the bottom row, the second photo in, where I’m wearing it with a grey dress, belt and scarf. Kinda cozy looking! I may re-create that semi-differently for Fall!

Week 1
