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.

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!

Happy almost August!!!!
Pokemon Go // I, like a whole heck of a lot of people, have become OBSESSED with this dang game. Bandit I have been on more walks trying to catch and hatch those dang Pokemon that I care to admit to. But it makes the walks much more entertaining and let's be honest, it's kind of a fun game.
Summer Wardrobe // I headed out for an evening with friends last night and realized that my wardrobe consists of work clothes and workout clothes. It does NOT consist of clothes to simply go hang out in.
Writing // I've been doing a lot of writing lately. Lots of poetry, lots of journal entries, lots of half written blog posts. I apparently have a lot in my head that needs to get out.
Duped // A couple of weeks ago I had a massive adult sized bombed dropped in my lap. It has turned into one of those "Oh man. If I survive this in tact, this is going to make an AWESOME 'You'll never believe this!' story". I'm still trying to come to terms with it, how I feel about it and what I am
not-so-responsibly doing about it.

Holy wow.....again, totally didn't plan on taking SUCH a long break but here we are, nearly to the middle of July already.
Here's a little recap of what has been going on.....
FireFly Music Festival // I had planned to do a whole recap of this, but it obviously didn't happen. Last month I headed to Delaware with 2 good friends for a weekend of good music. It was amazing! I discovered some really great new-to-me bands, saw some favorites and spent a lot of quality time with a couple of quality ladies!
CrossFit & Gettin' Fit // About 6 six weeks or so ago, I sat down with my CrossFit coach, Trevor, to figure out a plan to lose some weight, gain some muscle and just basically kick some ass. I am happy to say I have seen some pretty big improvements since following his advice. The scale hasn't really moved, but my clothes fit better, I am definitely seeing some new muscles, my lifts have gotten better but more importantly, I FEEL better and with that has been a pretty big boost in confidence.
Dating // I am SO done with this for the foreseeable future. Like I was telling a friend this weekend, I never saw myself as someone who would eventually get married. I always figured if it happened, it happened but if it didn't it wouldn't make my life any less fantastic. So, I'm setting the whole notion of dating aside and am just going to enjoy whatever weird things life throws at me.
