We got all our new goodies from the Advocare Performance Elite Line in! So excited!!  I usually don’t take pre-workout because it makes me jittery and feel weird but I tried the Muscle Fuel pre-workout and I felt great! My husband took the Arginine Extreme for his pre-workout and he liked it as well.


We needed it for the workout we did today. Holy Moly we wanted to quit so many times. We did the Hero WOD Whitten. Below is the history behind this workout. We wanted to quit after the 4th round but we remembered that the hero’s that have died never gave up!  Whenever we do Hero workouts we always try to remember and reflect on their significance.

Army Captain Dan Whitten, 28, of Grimes, Iowa, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, died February 2, 2010, when enemy forces in Zabul, Afghanistan, attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device. Whitten is survived by his wife, Starr Whitten, his mother, Jill Whitten, his father, Dan Whitten, and his sister, U.S. Army Captain Sarah Whitten.

5 rounds for time

22 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood
22 Box jump, 24 inch box
Run 400 meters
22 Burpees
22 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball(we do not have wall balls ar home so we did 45#/35# thrusters)

My time was 43:38

I also have to give a shout out to my Mom! It was her birthday yesterday.  My mom is such an inspiration to me.  She’s in her 60s, still riding horses and my parents do all the work around their horse property.  She looks fantastic!  She called me the other day because she needed some help starting a strength training program.  She was diagnosed with Osteopenia, which is pre-osteoperosis.  Her doctor told her even though she is very active she needs to add some strength training to her life.  I was a bit more excited than I should have been to hear this!  I bought her an Adjustable Kettlebell for her birthdayl.  This way she only needs one kettle bell and she can adjust the weight as she gains more experience.  I’ll be sending her some workouts and tutorials with it!  Below is the link if you’re interested!
