This Week’s Reasons to Smile

22 Nov

1. New kicks (c/o Reebok). Always lovely to receive a gift and even better when they encourage getting a workout in.

2. New Year’s resolutions achieved. Handstand Push-up: Check.

3. Dark brown hair dye and my impulsive decision making.

4. Curiosity. I hadn’t had a real “training session” in quite some time, but we are trying to get back into them to finish up a few goals (see number 2) before 2014 is upon us. Randomly I asked trainer boy, “what do you think is a good back squat weight for a woman?” He didn’t have a clue, so suggested we do them and see. Turns out 5x 195# ain’t no thing. Ok, it is a thing. It was a fine and fully unexpected accomplishment. Looking forward to figuring out what my current one rep max is and then working it up.

5. Hitting seemingly impossible deadlines. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” never rang so true.

6. Coffee. Making hitting deadlines possible since…well I don’t know when, but it’s good shiz.

7. Afternoon cuddle fests.

8. Ruffled white tulips.

9. Baseball shirts. Just love ‘em, don’t really know why?

10. Taking the high road.
