We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.
This first week back after the holidays was a doozy. I miss sleeping in and not having to go anywhere, especially after our temperatures dropped to single digits. Therefore, this Fabulous Friday is much needed. Without further ado…
- Are you ready for some football?!? – It is January. It is cold. It is football playoff time!!! I know most of my readers don’t care, but I do love the sport of football (yes, in spite of the brain damage and domestic violence issues). This weekend is the first weekend of the playoffs, and I am ready to sit and watch every game. I can only hope they are good ones.
- My First Crossfit Class – Everyone knows that I have not been exercising. At all. For the past decade at least. I’ve flirted with running and TurboFire, but nothing lasts. I get too bored. A little known secret about me is that I LOVE strength training. The last time I got really excited about working out was doing P90X all those years ago (until I memorized the banter on the videos and then ended up hating Tony with all of my heart). Jim mentioned that when he is done with his marathon, he wanted to check out Crossfit. That piqued my interest, so after some research on my part, I went to my first session last night. I will admit that while I was there, I struggled and was so embarrassed by my lack of strength and lack of conditioning (the warm-up wore me out). By the time I left, I had a headache from all of the up and down motions while I was out of breath and was sick to my stomach. I drove home wondering why I put myself through that and doubted I would ever go back. All it took was a spoonful of peanut butter, a bunch of water, and a hot shower, and I cannot wait to go back for another session. I am sure this is not the last you will hear about this!
What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
