Fall // Weeee!! Fall has officially arrived in northern Michigan and I am SUPER excited about it. Crips weather. Hot coffee drinks. Leaves changing colors. An excuse to wear skinny jeans with boots. I love this time of year!

All The Yarn // The cooler temperatures also mean that the urge to crochet has hit again. Last weekend I made 4 hats alone! Not all of them were for me, because honestly, who needs that many hats, but they are still super fun to make.

Recovery // This past week I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss my MRI results to to talk options. Sadly, he is the second doctor to tell me I should give up on Crossfit, which is simply not going to happen. Instead, after talking additional options, we agreed that physical therapy is the best option at this point. Thankfully, my boss specializes in sports medicine and is already planning my treatment.

Sunday Confessions: Life Lately

Well, hello there October! Wasn't expecting to see you quite so soon!

Boring // Life has been pretty dull as of late. I feel like all my days are the same.....work, crossfit, eat, sleep, repeat.

Crossfit // I'll eventually do a full post dedicated to this, but I've been working with my crossfit coach, Trevor, since May on getting my diet/nutrition whipped into shape. Needless to say, it hasn't been going well at all. We meet again this week and I think it's time to rethink so of my goals because right now, constantly not hitting my macros and weigh-in expectations is killing my self esteem.

Ortho // Tomorrow afternoon I am off to meet with the orthopedic surgeon to discuss my ankle problems. The MRI I had last month showed that I do indeed have Achilles tendonitis but also a split in one of other tendons in my ankle. Fingers crossed I don't end up casted or in a boot for the next 4 weeks.

Music Monday: Modern Mal

It's been awhile since I did a Music Monday post, but I simply adore this song from Modern Mal! I'm definitely picking up a copy of their album as soon as it is released!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!

Happy September // So, I'm not entirely sure what happened to the month of August but I'm kind of glad fall is right around the corner. This summer has been exceptionally stressful and trying. So much more so than I was prepared to deal with. But, all storms come to an end and I'm hoping fall will provide that much needed break.

Injury // I finally caved last week and went to see my doctor about an ankle issue I have been having. Sadly, it's much worth than I thought it was and I'm off for an MRI on Tuesday! In the meantime, it means no running, no sled pulls and no double-unders at the Box until we sort out what is going on.

Sunday Confessions

Overwhelmed // I never thought I'd say this, but I am ready for summer to come to an end. It's been three-ish months of some pretty ridiculous ups and downs. And I need a break.

Blogging // I've kind of given up on having any sort of a regular blogging schedule. I know things will eventually fall back into place, I just need to give myself some slack and take a deep breath.

Olympics // I haven't watched any coverage of this years Olympics. I actually can't remember the last time I watched any of the Olympics, summer or winter.

Movie Night // I've decided that rather than waiting for friends to be available to go see movies I want to see, I'm just going to start taking myself. First up....Suicide Squad. I know it's already been out for awhile, but I'm going to see it later this week and I can't wait!
