Yesterday was an amazing day. Stephanie surprised me by offering to go lay by the pool. Normally, she spends her time pretty divided between working in her lab and at CrossFit, so it’s always a nice surprise to find out she’ll get to spend some extra time with me. We bought her a new swimsuit at Target, which she looks SO GOOD wearing (as you can see).
After that, we went to CrossFit Innovate for Open Workout 13.4. The WOD was a 12 minute AMRAP: 3 clean and jerks, 3 T2B, 6 clean and jerks, 6 T2B, 9 & 9, and so on… I have been really exasperated with CrossFit lately. The workouts, the people, the environment… I have been admittedly overwhelmed. I don’t know if it’s my competitive nature or my feelings of inadequacy. Or maybe both. (More on all of this later.) Anyway, I decided before I even started that I was just going to do the workout to get it done— no pressure, no rush. I was laughing and smiling the entire time. I don’t even think I was out of breath. And my score was less than impressive. Far less. But honestly, it was more fun than I’ve had in a really long time with my workouts. Steph even said that she liked seeing me like that.
After that, we went to have dinner with the adorable couple we’re leasing a house from starting in May. I had so much fun with them and their two precious little ones, Luna and Ocean. Marc made us bacon and pimento grilled cheese sandwiches on sourdough. OM NOM NOM they were so delicious. We also topped off the meal with a six pack of both Southern Pecan and (it’s back!!) Abita Strawberry. Not only was the food and drink delicious, but also I really enjoyed talking to another couple— especially one who seems like they’re still head over heels. Sometimes, I wonder if people see us as naive to be so in love and so young and different. Couples like Marc and Bekah seem so… together… that it just makes my heart smile.
We topped off the night with sweet couch cuddles and maybe some chocolate chip cookies were involved.
