CrossFit Today

As you know, I've left my CrossFit box. It was heartbreaking and incredibly difficult to do but my finances dictated it. I've been trying to do it on my own at my local gym. Up until last week it was very sporadic. I've been a bit more consistent but does two weeks count as good behavior? I also did runs of 3 miles Saturday, 2miles Tuesday, 3 miles Thurday.

My two WODs this week were difficult. As you can see. I left off the row

s on today's. I've been having some left knee pain after running and noticed the past couple of times rowing my left knee hurt in the back. Being more consistent with my CF and running has also led me to be a little bit more disciplined in my eating habits, too. I'm hopeful that this is a return to the "norm" for me. I need it, the past 6-9months has been pretty crappy on the food/exercise front.

On a side note: During one of the 1min breaks in today's WOD an INCREDIBLY fit woman who was finishing up with her trainer came up to me and told me how amazing and dedicated I was and wanted to know if I programmed my own workouts. She also noted that I work really hard. Which I do! I go balls to the wall when I work out. It's just getting started that's the problem. It felt crazy good to be told this and will carry me into the next two weeks helping me to make the last two weeks a habit!

Off the Sites

Well, Whiskey and I are still going. Apparently, me slipping up a couple of weeks ago didn't have him running for the hills. In fact, this past week we spent 4
days in a row together. Not full days, mind you, but a good couple of hours each day. To some of you this may not be a big deal but to me it's a mile stone. In another week or two it will officially be the longest relationship I've been in since Original Flavor. SCARY!!

Over the course of the past three days we talked about the dating site we met on and discussed if we were still on it. We both were but neither of us had been on it in weeks. Obviously, there's no harm in leaving my profiles up, since I have no plan to "keep looking." So, I've officially closed my profiles. As I was closing one I got an email from Hot Dan! He had last texted in January asking if I was still seeing someone and his email asked if there was trouble in paradise. I don't know how he knew I was on! It was instantaneous!! I replied with no and that I was just trying to figure out how to remove my profile. Which, I was successful in doing.

Whiskey and I have taken one official "relationship" step last night. We went out with one of my great friends and her husband. I know I was bit tippsy but I think they found him favourable. And, liked him better than the last one I introduced them to, which was Tex. In a couple of weeks I'll be going to meet a couple of his friends. I'm a bit worried about it. I'm not so good with the small talk.

Well, SHIT!

In the last update I introduced you to the new guy in my life but failed to mention his name. Let's call him Whiskey. Which is pretty fitting since I do love my whiskey.

We're going into our 7th week of dating and we have some form of communication every day. We haven't actually labeled "us" as BF or GF but we have decided not to see others or go looking.

Anyways, the point of this entry: he surprised me Thursday with a free evening and yesterday with a free 2 hours. It was quite nice since I thought this week was going to pass with out seeing him (he is the primary parent for his son and couldn't get a sitter.)

Thursday he came over late but we sat around and caught up on our weeks and then I went to bed. He stayed up and did lawyer things. Whiskey left very early Friday morning so that he could be in Michigan for court. When I got up in the morning I went into the living room to turn on lights and briefly looked at the note pad on the coffee table. No note. And I was disappointed. I didn't EVEN know I was the type of girl who wanted notes!  I went in to take my shower and saw the note on my mirror. And my day was made!
Saturday, Whiskey came over, we had a small lunch, a drink and some talk. We also had a make out session. The problem is that in the middle I got carried away and blurted out "I love you." Quickly followed by "OH! SHIT!" Cause, it's not quite what I meant. It was "I love brownies." Or, "I love the way you kiss me." Even, "I love Big Bang Theory." It was not Love Love. Yes, I can see possibly in the future being love love but not now.

I can't decide if I should try to explain what I meant or just ignore it and pretend it never happened.

Probably #2.

He did give me the login and password for his Netflix.
