Weekly Workouts 8/3-8/9, 8/10-8/16

I can’t believe today is the last day of August! And that I am just now posting my workouts for the entire month… I know its early, but did anyone else wake up this past week and notice a fall-feeling in the air? It was crisp and cool, and made me crave all fall things! Sorry I’ve been lacking in the recipes lately, but I have been working on a guest post for one of my favorite websites this past week, and it’ll totally be worth the wait!

Until then, here’s what I’ve been up to the past month…

  • Strongman Training – getting ready for the Harvest Queen on 9/5
  • Marilyn Manson/ Smashing Pumpkins concert – talk about a 90’s throwback. Strongman and I bought tickets spontaneously the day of. It was a great decision.
  • Went to a GRID match – (DC Brawlers v. Baltimore Anthem) If you haven’t heard of the GRID, I hadn’t until I went to this match, which was a blast. If you’re a fan of CrossFit, you need to check it out. Its basically team CrossFit style workouts, with teams of Gymnasts, Olympic Weightlifters, and Generalists.
  • Gave Blood- Strongman (the bf) and I went to the PA Renaissance Faire a few weeks ago, and we donated blood for free admission. I have never been able to successfully donate before, so I was pretty excited! Next time I will have to plan better around my training days though. I tried to work out the next morning and I felt awful.
  • Laurita Food Truck Festival – Always an awesome time… Strongman and I ate all things. I highly recommend checking out Five Sister’s Food Co. if you’re in the area.
  • Zac Brown Band Concert – SO MUCH FUN!! I love country shows, and they were fantastic

That’s about it, other than work.. but no one wants to hear about that! Here’s what I’ve been doing at the gym:
