Hi guys. It’s me. I know it’s been awhile. Truthfully, the last week has been hard for me. After doing 17.5, I took it easy afterwards and scaled my workouts. On Tuesday, I dropped my phone and totally shattered my screen. I almost cried, seriously. Wednesday morning I woke up and felt awful. I wasn’t sure if it was a cold, sinus infection, or the early beginnings of the flu. I stayed home and lived off bone broth. That afternoon, I decided to walk Kohi. Right before making the turn to come home, my bad ankle gave out underneath me.
The pain was excruciating and I could hardly walk on it. Two kind folks off the street helped me back in and held on to Kohi. With my pain registering a 10 on the pain scale, I had Greg take me to the ER. The x-rays showed that I don’t have a broken ankle (PHEW!) but I’m not supposed to really do much on my bad ankle. I’m in an air split now, and will see my chiropractor on Monday.
Needless to say, this week sucked. Like really sucked. I wasn’t feeling up to writing about anything this week, but I thought I’d at least share my current state.
One of the things I bought a few weeks ago were some wooden rings of my own from Rogue. While the incident of hurting my ankle has left me with some mental scars, I’m still determined to get back my ability to do muscle-ups. Not wanting to waste an injury, there truly is no better time like now.
Stay safe my friends and hope your week is filled with lots of love and inspo!

This video has been circulating on the Internet for a few days and I’ve convinced myself that the greatest part of this video is the old dude making every single shot in the background. I know I can’t make that many shots from any distance!

Did you know that Friday was National Stripes Day? Well, according to J.Crew (aka stripes champion and master) deemed it so. I celebrated with finding my favorite striped item – my cozy Gap shirt and some leggings. This air split makes looking cute hard, but stripes distract what’s going on below my waist 🙂 Check out my current favorite striped items:

With my mobility significantly limited, I’m relying a lot on my Instant Pot to get things done for me. Not only did I use it for bone broth this week, but it also helped me with making rice and soups! I love all of Nom Nom Paleo’s Instant Pot recipes, and I’m looking forward to making her Korean short ribs tonight! Here are a few other go-to Instant Pot recipes I’m checking out:

In light of the fact that Gonzaga is in the finals for this year’s NCAA tournament, I’d like to take the opportunity to highlight another West Coast Conference team. This year’s Loyola Marymount men’s basketball team didn’t make the tournament. In fact, they haven’t been in the tournament since 1990. But, in a little bit of sports history, I thought I’d remind folks that Gonzaga isn’t the only WCC team with a little bit of magic.
