Today’s workout: 3.26 miles of stairs + 2.61 miles. The best part? Kevin noticed that ESPN was airing some coverage from last year’s Cross Fit games. I was so excited because I’ve been trying to talk Kevin into trying it with me sometime (if you have no idea what it is, check out this video. It’s ridiculous). I love that it’s “the sport of being fit.” I’m a huge scaredy cat, and not tough at all, but for some reason I’ve convinced myself I want to try it. I think my first step will be when I can complete some double unders!
This weekend has been super booked for us after being gone last weekend, and I’ve totally been oversocialized. Our last event of the weekend was Marriage + Class, and we were sooo looking forward to coming home afterwards to some peace & quiet. I made some homemade pizza with my favorite toppings green peppers, onions, and pineapple. Mmmmmmm!! Kevin’s side had no piña and a lot of jalapeños.
I know my friends are going to die when they see this, but Kevin had been casually mentioning that he thought it would be fun if we did a puzzle together sometime. So I surprised him with one on Valentine’s Day! We didn’t really do anything big since I was planning to plan (yes, I plan to plan!) it over last weekend and we ended up in unexpectedly in Chicago! But he still got his puzzle!
He hid behind the table because he didn’t want all my readers to see him in pajamas again. Outed.
Yeah. Let’s be real. I’m totally faking it here. I’m never that intent about anything – except maybe Garmin stats. But I did go through all the puzzle pieces to flip them over and check for missing edge pieces! There are 1000 pieces! And I didn’t say,”Am I there yet?” Not even once.
In my defense, I’ve put together 3 pieces. And finding the missing edges really helped Kevin out. Or maybe he just says that because he’s a sweet husband.
By the way, I chose this Flags of the World puzzle. It was between puppies and some sort of a geographical theme. I went with flags because I felt that learning about them might help me in one of my vicious Corrie versus Jeopardy!-on-tv matches! Hopefully someone in the gym will hear my yell the answer to an obscure flag question and be really impressed. These are the things I strive for in my puzzle selection.
Our biggest fear? You know Boyd is going to eat a puzzle piece, right? And that’s it! That’s the end.
He’s just waiting….
No, we didn’t have two kinds of pizza tonight. This is pizza I made on Friday night, and felt the liberty to share now since this post had “pizza” in the title. I love a good pita pizza, don’t you? This variety had bbq sauce, black beans, red onion, pineapple, and mozz. We each ate two. And a half.
Do you like puzzles? Not really. Why do you think I’m blogging right now? I do LOVE a good crossword puzzle. But I have too many gaping holes in categories like “sports” and “anything in pop culture that took place before 2000.”
Ever tried Cross Fit? Or want to? Not yet. Although I have done quite a few at-home workouts that would be similar (but not as hard!).
How long do you think it will take us to finish this puzzle? I’m thinking I’ll probably invited someone over to dinner before it’s done. And then things are going to get ugly. We’ve been working on it about 1.5 hours now and the border isn’t even finished. Just to give you a hint.
