First things first: 
Laura Bell! Congrats on the baby! I am so excited for you and jealous! 

1.       I am in a much better mood place today. Man I was raining on my own parade yesterday. I’ve decided to do the following things to combat what I have since identified as the “winter time blues.”

a.       I’m going to continue with Crossfit. I paid for my official membership today.  Signed up for a class tonight at 5.

b.      I’m going to tan one time a week. I am a firm believer that I do enough damage to my skin in the summers so I USUALLY don’t get anywhere near a tanning bed, but seriously people, we haven’t seen the sunshine in weeks (and if it did come out for a bit I’ve been cooped up inside.) So I’m just going to go and see if it helps. If you could see what a Debbie Downer I have been the last few weeks, you’d buy me the pass.

2.       I SWEAR to you I am not going to drink anything besides water. If I get started on Sprite or whatever it is, that is all I want to drink.

3.       I can’t wait for the sun to shine and it to get about 32 degrees so I can go for a bike ride. Or ride my horse without feeling like I will freeze on the spot.

a.       Seriously, have you ever peed outside when it is -25? Cuz I have and it isn’t fun. Especially by the time I get the six layers I wear (not an exaggeration) out of the way so I don’t pee on em. Sheesh, it is a workout. Cowgirls should get extra BADASS points, you don't see cowboys having to squat. Not to mention when mother nature is calling.

4.       Doing better with food and what-what today too. I’ve got a game plan for making a few meals in advance and freezing them in 1 cup servings to I can take them to school with me for lunch and to my night job for dinner. Breakfast is easy for me- water and a greek yogurt.

5.       I need a haircut. I forgot to tell you all that I was going to “grow it out.” Well that lasted about 8 weeks (I usually get my hair cut every 5 or less) when I realized today that there is a reason my hair has been short since the 9th grade.

6.       I’m going to get a “body composition” done on Friday where they do a full body scan and tell you percentage of body fat and other random stuff, all for 10 bucks.  Don't worry- good or bad I'll report back.

7.       Still trying to get the treadmill moved to my house- no luck so far. My family has been stinking in the “assist Lorie” department. Wonder where the complaint box is?

8.       Our cows start having babies the first of March! This signifies spring to me and I CAN NOT wait (even though it is still butt cold in comparison to most places.) Love the season.

9.       I may have drank the Kool Aid so to speak when it comes to Crossfit, it is cray-zy hard, but awesome. (I say that and I am basically just kinda getting through the warm up.)

10.   I have to get my DL renewed this year (June) and I really want to be at goal weight. Time to find the inner warrior.


  1. Body comp thing sounds amazing! Let us know how it goes.

  2. Um 3a ~ You are total bad ass! And sunshine is a necessity - I believe in it. Its been at least sunny here even though its cold as balls. Good luck today - I'm starting the day off on the dreadmill with a protein shake.

  3. 10...Yay...good motivator! Show us the comparison photos!
    9. tell us, what EXACTLY are you enjoying about Crossfit? I hear so much about it, but I need deets!

  4. So happy for you that you are in a better place!
