I found this video from Saturday and thought it was interesting. Funny story is that when @jrod7923 and I started dating we would get into “arguments” everytime he tried to coach me. I’ve heard it happens between couples that do #crossfit together. I had to learn to not be the boss at the gym and let him coach me. (I’m the boss everywhere else 😂). Although I don’t get to be coached by @jrod7923 as frequently as i would like, everytime I get a chance I ask him for advice. I like this video because it shows what our relationship is about. In this video I’m overthinking the movement and I don’t think I can do this weight so I look at him for reassurance. He believes in me so he just tells me to stop thinking about it and do it. I’m a secure and independent woman but we ALL need someone to believe in us. Be it your partner, sister, mother, friend...just someone that tells you: You can do it! That’s what our relationship is about and interestingly its what crossfit is all about. A group of people that believe and encourage each other. .
I did 3 reps of my max PR of #snatch which is #100lbs. 😬 Not a lot of weight but I’m proud of it!
It’s been an interesting week for me! I’ve been doing a lot of resting because of my wrist injury (which is now confirmed as being tendonitis and potentially still an issue with my TFCC). Tuesday and Wednesday I had a holter monitor on to do a 24 hour ECG. I’ve been having some problems with my heart racing and I’ve been feeling sick and lightheaded for absolutely no reason. It’s been going on for over a year now so I thought I better get it checked out. I’m still waiting for the results 😑but I hope they find something fixable.
AND I SIGNED UP TO DO THE WHOLE 30 TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We’ve come A LONG WAY in our health & relationship in 9 years.
From a party lifestyle —> to a health/fitness lifestyle
A lot of people don’t realize that @tphillips125 and I did a total 180 on our lifestyle once we got pregnant (almost 6 years ago). Sure we still worked out occasionally, and worked extremely hard at our business at the time, but we spent all of our free time drinking and partying. We didn’t eat healthy (or we may have thought we did but had no idea what “eating clean” actually was😂) and our relationship wasn’t nearly as strong as it is today.
With 2019 approaching, take a hard look at your lifestyle choices. .
It’s extremely hard to get healthier if you aren’t getting adequate sleep, drink alcohol daily, smoke, eat out daily, don’t drink water, etc. These are all elements within your control. And these elements can be exactly what’s holding you back from truly reaching your goals. .
If what you’ve been doing for years, isn’t working.. it’s time to make a change. .

“I hope you find love. But more importantly, I hope you’re strong enough to walk away from what love isn’t.”
To the person that
never feeds into my insecurities,
admits when he’s wrong,
always makes sure I have a strong black coffee in hand,
refuses to go to bed unhappy,
puts me at the top of their list every single day,
feels lucky to wake up next to me every morning (and literally tells me every... single... morning, ‘I am so lucky to wake up next to you’),
surprises me with my favorite foods on the reg,
tracks my macros and preps my dinner if I’m getting home late,
reminds me that laundry shouldn’t be the priority when we have to leave in 5 minutes,
never makes me feel uncertain,
could never even imagine cheating on me or feeding into giving another girl attention,
means what he says and puts action to his words to prove it,
supports me with every business or personal move I make,
and the best teammate I could ask for.
You show me every single day what love is.
Love is NOT 50/50.
It’s 100% effort on both ends.
When I say I want everyone to find + have a @maxkutler19 , I mean that in a way that he lives out the definition of what true partnership is. What you allow is what will continue.
I hope you only allow the highest of standards of what love means to you 🖤. Thank you for showing and giving me your best on the daily. I deserve that.
