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.

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!

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.

I can’t believe this deal is still available and I get to share it with you.  Last week, I was searching for a good deal on a new pair of shoes for CrossFit (I’ve torn up one pair on rope climbs and just straight worn the heck out of another pair).  I stumbled across this pair of New Balance WT110 on 6PM.com for just $36.99 + FREE shipping!  I didn’t share it at the time because I was pretty sure it would be gone in five seconds, but apparently I was wrong.

These shoes are regularly priced anywhere between $70 and $90 and they are AMAZING.

They are set in between a barefoot running shoe and a traditional cross-training shoe.  They weigh next to nothing, are super flexible and are constructed from open mesh on the top.  These have a slightly different sole than I’m used to with a more rugged design made for outdoor use, but they have been so fantastic in and out of the gym.

Yesterday was a busy day for fun posts, deals and grocery store updates.  I spent some time at Costco gathering prices for the new organic coupon booklet and included some details about the new store layout.  Yoke’s Fresh Market deals starting today (2/12) are now up at the blog, with their fantastic case sale going on this week.  Grab boxed macaroni and cheese for just $.37, canned tomatoes for $.50 and more.

I also talked about some of my favorite things this week, including why I love the Olympics (or think I do), a super fun kids’ game that won’t make you want to poke  your eyeballs out and the little spatula that could.

Don’t miss out on my fantastic giveaway!  Enter to win a few of my favorite products from Tropical Traditions, Coconut Cream Concentrate and shredded coconut with no added yucky stuff.  I use these on a daily basis and am excited to share them with you!

Have you been looking for a cool new running shoe for your next workout? Reebok has been inspired by hi-performance, Z-Rated tires, and created the Reebok ZQuick training shoe that delivers sports car handling for your feet.

The Reebox ZQuick is designed for running and the ZQuick TR is designed for a more all-around training environment.  They both have plenty of color combinations for those of you that like to mix and match your outfits (P.S. I’m turning into one of those people).

Check out the video above for more information on how they designed the shoe and the purpose behind all the features.  Who knew so much went into shoe design?  I love how they anticipate an athlete’s needs in all situations.

Click here to check out the new Reebok ZQuick.  Shipping and returns are always FREE at Reebok.

Marika is having a HUGE end of the year sale, with an extra 50% off already-reduced sale and clearance items.  This is a giant discount.  Some of the items are close to 50% off before the additional discount, this would be a great time to stock up on some favorites or pick up a few new items to kick off the new year.

If you have never heard of or never tried Marika, they are my absolute favorite brand of workout tank. There is nothing over the top about them, they are just a good, solid basic tank that holds up well to multiple washings, beatings in the gym and doesn’t cling to everything. They offer a very flattering fit and are super comfortable.

A few of my favorites:

  • Weekend-Light Momentum Tummy Control Capri just $20.63 (down from $55)

M209401_763_M

I’ve mentioned these Reebok CrossFit Gradient Board Shorts several times, but they are worth sharing again at just $45 + FREE shipping after discount.  They are available in three colors.  I wore these every day this summer!  They are lightweight and breathable, but seriously don’t move an inch, no matter what exercise or workout you are doing.  Go with a size smaller than you think, so you don’t have to cinch super tight.  Best shorts EVER.  I know, I know, they are spendy.  But good quality shorts that don’t stretch, shrink, lose their shape or go anywhere while you’re working out are hard to come by.

Reebok is running another AMAZING sale through end of day today, December 3rd.  Use promo code CYBER30 at checkout to receive 30% off your entire order, including CrossFit gear and shoes!  It’s pretty rare for CrossFit stuff to be included in their sales and it may not happen again until next holiday season, so if you have a fitness-minded person on your list, take advantage.

If you have been looking to buy a pair of high quality shoes, but have been reluctant to spend the money, pick up the CrossFit Nano 2.0 in several different colors for just $76.99 with FREE shipping after discount.  These are regularly priced at $109 and very, very rarely go on discount.

These are an amazing shoe.  They are super flexible, breathable and have a low-to-ground feel similar to the barefoot style.  They are perfect for transitioning from weight lifting to higher intensity cardio workouts, but have enough support to add in some low-mileage running.  My husband has two pairs of these and wore them around Disneyland for four straight days of walking and they were super comfortable.

Click here to check out all the colors for men and women.

Z64205_01

  • Reebok Women’s The Clock is Watching Bra just $35 + FREE shipping after discount – Comes in four colors.  LOVE this bra.  It is mega supportive and only has a small amount of stretch in the band, so it never shifts.  The straps are very comfortable and taper slightly in and don’t dig in to your shoulders.
