Our favorite pants ever are on sale right now!  The Zella Live-In Leggings are available in several colors and lengths starting at just $31.20 + FREE shipping & returns. These don’t go on sale very often so grab these up before they run out of sizes.

We are out of control in love with our Zella Live-In Leggings.  These things are amazing. The quality is fantastic and they hold their shape really, really well.  They are on the thicker side so they won’t wear out and they are warm.  They are crazy comfortable, well made and have the perfect fabric.  They are stretchy, but not thin.  They are flexible, but stay put.  Love, love, LOVE them.

The long pants are reversible so if you spill something on them, just flip them inside out.  I wear them with boots under a sweater in the winter or to work out when it’s super cold.  Really versatile!

Make sure and check out the entire sale section at Nordstrom.  You can sort by department and price.  Just a reminder that they always have free shipping, free returns and  do price adjustments by chatting with a customer service rep online.

The Color Run is happening all across the nation!  If you have participated in a run in the past or have been interested, now is your chance.  For any Color Run race that is not currently sold out, use promo code COLOR5OFF to save $5 on your registration fee.  There are a few select new cities that launch with special pricing that will not accept the promo code, but these will be marked with a double asterisk.

If you haven’t heard of the race, here is a little info from the site:

The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.

Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

1. Wear white at the starting line
2. Finish plastered in color

So.  Reebok offered me a 35% off code to try out some of their gear.  And since I’m a CrossFit addict and obsessed with their CF shorts and sports bras anyway, I was like “Send it to me yesterday”.

If you don’t have a CrossFitter in your life, you may not know that we are addicted to clothes.  It’s such a versatile, fast-paced, quick-moving sport that the nature of our clothes is quite important.  Nothing floppy or shifty or ill-fitting, because we end up messing with our clothes more than we actually focus on the workout.

I always tell people that CrossFit is ideal for people who don’t know how to dress themselves or can never seem to match (like myself).  You can wear 92 different colors in one outfit and it’s considered legit.  I heart not worrying about matching.

10449606_10203421471971793_997705745_n

And then there are the shoes.  Legitimately, the right shoes are important and can make a difference in what we do.  But for some reason, most of us feel the need to have extra pairs in our gym bag in several different colors.  Even though we don’t have to match our clothes, we like to match our shoes to our mismatched clothes.  You follow?

But in reality, I have a few pairs of shoes that are perfect for our basic workouts.  They are more of the barefoot-style, which helps me really feel what I’m doing and the heel of a regular sneaker tends to get in the way of climbing up ropes and jumping rope and leaping on to a box.  What I was really dying for was a pair of Olympic lifting shoes.  I’ve been spending a lot of time swimming around in the weightlifting and strength training at our gym and was definitely hindered by my “regular” shoes.

IMG_0059

Oly shoes have a higher (and VERY sturdy) heel that helps you drive through your heels when squatting and helps avoid the dreaded landing on your toes or leaning forward on your toes phenomenon.  The heavier the weight got for me, the more it would pull me to my toes and I could never land a heavy lift to save my life.

IMG_1413-225x300

So when Reebok was all “We want to discount your purchase”, my poor husband was at the receiving end of a long list of reasons why saving 35% was the end all, be all deciding factor for me.  “But honey, I NEED to PR my back squat!”  Romantic pillow talk, for sure.

I apologize if this sounds like nonsense, but in all honesty, these are the only kind of shoes that are a necessity in this girls’ life.  I could live with one pair of heels and one pair of flip flops for the rest of my life, but lifting shoes are apparently a priority.

Thank you Reebok, for keeping me in pretty shoes.

Just about four years ago, my husband and I slowly, sort of kind of kicked off our weight loss journey. We started with some at-home, 20-minute workouts that turned into hour-long workouts at home that turned into signing up for local races that turned into signing up for 12-mile obstacle courses that turned into joining a CrossFit gym that turned into entering CrossFit competitions. Over the years, getting fit has led us down a healthier path with our nutrition. Switching out processed foods to switching to whole grains to giving up grains entirely to eating for performance. One change begets another change that in turn begets another change.

Over the years, I have realized what it takes for me to stay motivated, keep pushing myself and keep training towards something better. I have also realized that this journey will never end. There are always going to be new things to try, movements to perfect, heavier weights to lift, new challenges to pursue. For me, to stay stagnant equates fitness death and way too much ice cream.

Because we are on a pretty good path with our fitness and nutrition, my goals for 2014 are a little more narrow in scope.  I am basically trying to take what has worked so far in the place that I am at and dial it in like a boss.

8cedc292c8aa11e38b830002c9c88978_8

Dial in my nutrition to better optimize my workouts and recovery time

We have been working really hard over the past few years to clean up our diets, remove the junk and eat as many whole/unprocessed foods as possible. Over the course of this year, I’d like to maximize not just what we eat but how much and when we eat it to give my body all the nutrition and energy it needs to be the best I can be in the gym and for my family. Eating three platefuls of sweet potatoes is technically “whole foods”, but is not necessarily going to be the best for my body. And there’s always the danger that I would actually turn into a sweet potato.  I want to make sure I’m getting the right amount of protein, healthy fats and carbs to properly fuel my body.

Run a 10K

What the what?  Who said that?

About four years ago, if you had suggested to me that I would ever run a mile without stopping, I would have laughed until I peed my pants. If you had suggested that I would ever sign up and run a 3.2 mile race in FRONT OF ALL THE PEOPLE, I would have slapped you in the face. If you had suggested that I would ever register for a 12-mile obstacle course and get electrocuted, I would have just died. Twice.

Sitting here today, I now know what my body is capable of, whether or not my mind thinks the same. Because of my previous successes, the fact that my brain is telling me I could never run a 10k lets me know that I should probably just do it. 5k? Sure. I’ll do that every day. 10k? Hahahahahahahahaha. Isn’t that like torture? That you pay for?

So I should and I will. Someone else sign me up.

I’m convinced that it’s not getting started with a workout regimen that is the hardest part.  So many of us in a fit of motivation sign up for a class, buy a DVD, start running every day.  This is the honeymoon stage of the relationship.  Things look bright and rosy and promising and we make time for it BECAUSE IT’S IMPORTANT and “THIS TIME IT WILL STICK”.

And then the newness wears off.  It becomes easier to make excuses.  Life gets in the way in the form of our kids, our jobs, the holidays, our car breaks down. Birthday parties need planning and carpets need vacuuming and dinner needs making and the lawn needs mowing.

I “started” a fitness routine approximately 1,984 times.  It was the continuing part that was hard.

It’s definitely not the desire to look and feel better that’s the issue.  I know we all want this.  We all know how to get it, for the most part.  We can try all these fancy diets and pills and JUST WORK OUT ONCE A MONTH AND YOU’LL BE SUPER FIT programs we see on Pinterest.  But we all KNOW what it takes.  Hard work, exercise and cutting out the crap that we shove in our faces.  So why is it that we want so bad to feel better about ourselves, but can’t make it a part of our daily lives?

05a8fc1ca5733a946e1d12f23ad344bb
I’m 99.9% positive you won’t look like Brook Burke with just a 1-minute workout

Is it because we don’t like to sweat?  Is it because pizza is just too good?  It it because we just don’t know where to start?  Is it because we’re embarrassed?  Is it because that beautiful purple bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs is too intoxicating?  Is it because, as women, we’re convinced we will grow ginormous Arnold muscles if we pick up a dumbbell?  WHAT IS IT?

These are some of the biggest challenges we face when it comes to starting and sticking with a workout routine. Some of these I have mastered, some I have to fight everyday, some I just muddle through and hope they work out in the end.

10260247876_e75088326f_z

But I don’t have TIME!

You’re going to have to suck this one up.  I have never in my life met a person who is literally “too busy” to make it to the gym or at the very least go for a walk around the block.  I know.  We’re all busy.  We all have preschool pick-up and grocery shopping and careers and teeball and just one more trip to the store for one more thing and doctor’s appointments and oil changes and Girl Scouts and dates to remember and books that are overdue at the library.

We (and I include myself in this giant “WE”) make excuses.  We make time for the “priority” things in our life, but have a hard time making our own fitness and well-being a priority.  There will never in our whole lives be a day that just magically has ENOUGH TIME to fit in a workout.  You have to make it happen.  Put it on your calendar, schedule a class, slap a DVD on for your kids, go walk outside with your dog.  It will never ever ever fall into your lap.

My days are mostly spent running.  Running from preschool to Costco to the gas station back to preschool.  Running home for an hour to blog for five seconds and attempt to start dinner so we can eat at 9 PM after teeball.  Running mostly because I have a class at the gym scheduled in the afternoon.  On occasional Saturdays, I wake up early to enjoy a cup of coffee in the 5:30 AM silence and then head to the class I scheduled at the gym at 9 AM.  Scheduled!  I have to go.  I plan my life around it some days.  But I go.

But I don’t want to run!!!

I get it.  And most days I don’t really either.  But the best part of all the running and all the crazy is that after a good solid workout, I feel like I could conquer the world.  When I don’t work out, I start to feel drained and get that mid-afternoon brain fog.  While my days may be a little hectic, this is the stage of life I am in and this is how working out fits in the picture.  Some day it may be different, but if I want to feel my best, this is what I have to give.

My personal weight loss and fitness story

by Melody on April 4, 2014

PicMonkey-Collage6-300x276

My youngest son was about six months old and in a fit of motivation, I announced to my blog readers that I was going to start some sort of fitness something or other.  Then you guys were like “Hooray.  Let us know how it’s going, we’re excited to see progress” and all those things that make a person feel bad when they don’t follow through.

I still vividly remember the first workout of Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred.  I woke up about 5:30 AM and slogged through the most uncomfortable 25 minutes of my life.  It felt like every muscle in my body had turned to gelatinous sludge after having babies and not one single joint knew where it was supposed to move and how it was supposed to support my body.  My eyebrows were sweating.  I got very angry.  I couldn’t sit on the toilet for about three days.

When you read these motivational articles about working out and perky, skinny and unnaturally tan people tell you to “JUST GET MOVING. YOU’LL FEEL SO GOOD”, it’s all a bunch of lies.  Nothing feels good in the beginning.  But you have to get through the beginning at some point to get to the great.

It took me a LONG time to make exercise a natural part of my daily routine.  It started out as a serious chore.  I tried every day to talk myself out of it and often succeeded.  It took me over 3 months to complete the 30-Day Shred.  However, every time I pressed play on the video, I felt a little better.  I lost a little weight.  I gained a little more energy.  I started realizing that I actually felt better AFTER the workout, instead of focusing on how hard it was to get started.

I finished one more round of the 30-Day Shred and was ready for a new challenge.  My husband had purchased P90X a few months back and just the thought of it terrified me.  I just kept pushing play, I figured out a way to work it into our routine.  I forced myself to put on my workout clothes.  I pushed play.  I worked out early in the morning before my kids woke up.  I worked out during Dora the Explorer.  I worked out while dodging Lightening McQueen.  I worked out on vacation.  I did the ab workout with a 25-pound toddler on my chest.  It never occurred to me to skip a workout.

What next?  A great friend of mine had been a part of a CrossFit gym and had been hinting that I should come try it out.  Every week I was all “I’m so busy. I have to wash the car. I have to take out my own spleen.  I have to pay taxes. I have to move to Montana.”  So we tabled that idea for awhile.

Image-20

My husband stumbled across a local mud run coming up in our area and we both kind of felt each other out, waiting for the other one to say it was crazy and we should never do it.  Neither one of us was willing to say all the words and we ended up signing up.  Never in my life had I run more than a mile (and that was probably in elementary school), let alone a 3.2 mile course with obstacles and mud and ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE RACING AND WATCHING ME.  The night before, I couldn’t sleep and woke up at an atrocious hour and started nervous baking.

There is something about personal recommendations and our need for them.  If I hear you say that you love something and I even sort of kind of trust you, I will most likely buy it or download it or borrow it or go see it or listen to it.

I want to share my favorite things with you.  Like every week.  Big things and little things and meaningful things and practical things and not-at-all practical things and delicious things and glorious things.  Every time I share things, you guys are all like “I want that” and “Thank goodness you told me about this thing that I never knew I needed” and “It looks crazy, but if you like it, I’ll try it”.

The CrossFit Open

Let me first explain the Open.  Anyone and absolutely everyone can sign up to participate and it is basically the preliminary stage before CrossFit Regionals.  For five weeks, each athlete that is registered must complete one workout each week as prescribed (read: no scaled movements and listed weight) in front of a certified judge.  If you do well enough, you move on to Regionals.

Let me repeat.  Every single person that wants to sign up and participate can do so.  This means we are theoretically in the running to move on.  Does this mean the majority of us will move on?  Absolutely not.  So why do we sign up?

In 2013, I had only been doing CrossFit for about four months when I signed up.  A few of the prescribed movements, I’d never even heard of before and the majority of weights I had never lifted.  My scores were low but I found myself setting personal records (only because I’d never tried some of the movements before).  If I had been in a regular workout, I would have scaled the movements or lightened the weight to something more manageable, but this forced me to give it my best shot and see what I was capable of.  The community of my gym members was like something I’d never seen before.  We all banded together to worry about and dissect the workouts, cheer each other on and pump each other up after every week.

In 2014, I now have the unique experience to share with all my fellow athletes who are newer to CrossFit.  When people find out about the Open, most assume it’s not for them because they are too new or “not good enough” at CrossFit yet.  I convinced and yelled and argued with anyone who would listen that they should sign up, based on my experience in 2013.  We have since created this AMAZING group of athletes who I have already watched set their own personal bests and push past their limits and it’s so inspiring.

For me, this year has been a whole different animal.  The prescribed weights are all completely manageable and I am halfway decent at all the movements, so my preparation and thought process going in are completely different!  I have been setting goals for myself (more than just one rep!) and have been able to push through so much more.  There is a certain level of anxiety that comes with actually trying to do well, versus just trying to not die and get through a workout.

1927212_10202717290287691_243820670_nChest to bar pull-ups!

What’s been most interesting to me this year is that I can see a measurable difference over last year.  Last year, I was only able to do 3 chest to bar pull-ups, this year I got 15.  Quantifiable improvements and results!

1797130_10202717281447470_1567963195_nCheering on my fellow athletes

My favorite part of the Open this year is that I get to be the encourager.  I get to cheer and motivate and talk to people about their accomplishments.  Paying it forward in the healthiest possible way!

Pat Summitt

While my kids are terrorizing the kids’ section at the library, I take approximately 45 seconds to quickly browse through the adult section and see if something catches my eye.  I’ve been reading a lot of biographies lately and I am always intrigued with books about sports and famous coaches in history, so this book on Pat Summitt caught my eye.  I had watched a short documentary on her with my husband, but didn’t know much about her beyond the fact that she was a coach for the Tennessee Lady Vols for many years and she had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
