Join Tillifinney as we follow her fitness journey over six months, starting on April 16th, 2014. The highs, the lows, the goals, the PRs...she shares it all!

And now...Week 7!

Hi, friends! Short post this week because someone else did all the talking for me about what was going to be the heart of my post. But first, some updates!

“Murph” round 2 happened yesterday (Memorial Day) and it was totally awesome! Here’s a little comparison shot of my first attempt and my retest:
Still over 50 minutes, but you know what? I improved. Whoop whoop! Also, Rachel and Lauren both improved to under the fifty minute mark. That’s pretty huge. Nice job, ladies! My first “Murph” mile of the retest was also my fastest mile yet: 11:38. Yeah, it’s still pretty slow, but you know what? I improved! My shoulders and arms are pretty sore today because I feel like I am also improving on my push ups. I’m still doing them from my knees, but I think I’m really close to leveling up to an actual real push up.

Getting to that spot where you are able to see your progress and see results is pretty awesome. I have never stuck with an exercise plan long enough to be able to see anything like I am seeing now. I feel great! Even my knees feel great! I bought new (smaller) clothes today! That’s great!

Are you familiar with Paleomg? If not, click here and check out some of what Juli has to say, then head to the grocery store and make one of her recipes ( this one is my personal fave). Juli is pretty much my blogging idol. I’m a huge fan. I want to be her friend, but if you read last week’s blog you know I want to be everyone’s friend. What Juli had to say today was pretty awesome, and it stuck with me. I’ve only been a CrossFitter for less than six months, and have a long way to go before I even consider competing, but her overall message is awesome and pretty much what I have been preaching for a while now. Check it out here , then reflect on what makes you happy. Now, go do that. Forever. And pay it forward. Tell someone else to do what makes them happy because sometimes we get so lost in other things that we forget about ourselves. Who knows, by telling someone to live their own personal happiest life, you may make a lifelong impact. That’s pretty cool.

Have you seen this video ? It is part of my happiest life right now. So enjoy it, and relax in knowing that the DeCO WOD will be posted at 5:00 am M­F, and Saturday will always be a surprise. J #itsnotagymitsalifestyle #twinsies #isthiswaterpaleo?

DeCO friends – I know that beer makes you happy, so join us for bimonthly happy hour on Thursday (May 29th) at 5:30 at Renegade! Also, my knees are finally ready to co­lead Run Club on Monday evenings, so if you feel like bringing up the rear of 3 miles with me, come do so starting Monday June 2nd!

Remember to do something awesome today, and to tell someone else to do the same. I will if you will!
