Workouts, Sharks, Pumpkins and More

And how was your Halloween weekend?

Mine was decent. I did absolutely nothing for actual Halloween except completely overhaul the house (cleaning was a MUST). But Saturday I made sure I hit up CrossFit, to which I had an amazing workout, of course.

We had a huge class. We worked on overhead squats- which are definitely something I would like to work on more often- seriously great for all stabilizing muscles, including your core. And our WOD was a “prison” cell workout:

For time, complete each move 10 times, then 9 times, then 8 times… all the way to 1 time.

10, 9, 8 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

  • Kettlebell swings (35 lbs)
  • Burpees
  • Plate sit-ups (25# plate)


Saturday I went to my first hockey game, San Jose Sharks vs. Anaheim Ducks. Funny because I used to live near Anaheim, and the Ducks were my team. Now I live near San Jose…

View from our seats... nosebleed section.

Anyway, we had purchased cheaper tickets, and well, you get what you pay for, right? Not that the view was bad, it wasn’t, but we wanted better…

Seats #2... after we, um, sneak down to the lower level...

So, peer-pressure is a b***h mighty fun thing at times, and when used for good, not evil, results yield highly desirable returns. We used our covert skills to move down to the lower levels where we saw (tons) of seats open. It worked… four times. We were able to enjoy the game in about 20 minute increments before an usher would ask to see our tickets and then nicely ask us to leave. Whatever, it was fun.

Anyone recognize this Pumpkin King?

No? How about now?

Fact: I LOVE The Nightmare Before Christmas. LOVE.

Fact: I hate carving pumpkins.

Fortunately for me, my boyfriend knows I like the movie and likes carving pumpkins. End result is a seriously amazing carved pumpkin. I was truly impressed. Especially since he did it freehand.

Boyfriend, yes, you’re pretty creative… but don’t let that go to your head… 😉

What kid movies do you love?

Pumpkin carving: love it or hate it? I’d much rather eat the thing…
