Bragging Rights

I'm putting my humility on the shelf for this post. Yesterday I went to CrossFit for a usual killer workout. Before we started in, though, we all went in for cleans to see what our max weight would be. If you're unfamiliar with a clean, here it is:

We were doing reps of 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, increasing our weight with each set. I started at 95 pounds. By the time I finished, I'd cleaned 145 pounds!! Woo-hoo! See for yourself (as stated by Lindsay, our CrossFit instructor who rocks!):

WE HAVE TWO NEW RECORDS ON THE GLORY BOARD, DOM CLEANED 245LBS & NICLOE CLEANED 145LBS. EVERYBODY THAT DID NOT GET THE PLEASURE TO COME TO THE 10:00 WOD, YOU MISSED OUT. IT WAS GREAT TO SEE EVERYONE CHEERING AND ENCOURAGING AS THE LADIES AND MEN WERE BATTLING FOR THE TOP CLEAN. THAT IS WHAT MAKES CROSSFIT GREAT, YOU WOULD NEVER SEE THAT IN A REGULAR GYM THE ENERGY WAS AWESOME, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

(P.S. Amber, Dom is the guy who works with you, did you know that?)

The great thing about CrossFit is that it's for anyone in decent physical shape. You challenge yourself every time. The other girl who almost got to 145# is an amazing machine, Stacie. The incredible thing about her is that she only weighs 125#!! So if all things were relative... But I don't care! I'm going to bask in the glory of my win!

Impressive Nicole. I just sit here getting bigger and bigger and seeing this post makes me excited to work out post-baby. I just have to remember how excited I was when that time comes!
