The Big 3-0!!

That's right it is my birthday and I am 30. It has been a great birthday so far, Jesse took me to Mimi's for breakfast and then off to Target to get some more games. I love to play games so it was great to get some more and try them out.

I am not sure that I feel any different and it definately isn't one of the birthday's that make me feel old. so all in all a pretty good year and I hope that it has some fun times for me to enjoy!!

This year my friend Nicole called me up and she was all stoked becuase she had found a dude ranch that was equal distance between us that was in our price range and available for the weekend between our Anniversaries. So we made our reservations and planned out the riding festivities and off Jesse and I went!!

Weirdly, most people did not think a dude ranch would be all that fun but let me tell you it was loads of fun!!! We went trail riding, on a cattle drive, skeet shooting, fly fishing (Jesse and Kevin did), roping, hot tubbing, a little running, lounging and a lot of eating!!

We were in the middle of nowhere in Idaho so the view was amazing and soo very peaceful.

CrossFit is Da Bomb

I know I do start a lot of different exercise programs but I think I have found something that I will never get bored of and I see amazing results in a short amount of time which I LOVE. CrossFit is a high intensity workout where every workout is a new and hard!! I have gone from never being able to doing a pull-up to doing a pull-up, I am close to doing dips without any bands, I am back to lifting what I used to when I was back on the Equestrian Team where we had lifting coaches and I have my muscle tone back that I have been commiserating about since my Equestrian days. I have had a great time getting to know the other people at the gym and love getting to compete against some of the people that I am close to thier fitness level. The great thing is there are people of all ages and fitness levels that come and everyone does the same workout just modified for where you are out. It makes me feel good that I am doing the same thing as the super fit ironman competitor or the guys that look like they don't have an ounce of fat on thier bodies(just a bit slower!!) Oh and workouts on average are 20 minutes long how is that for not consuming my whole life!!! So if you want to know more just ask and I will talk your ear off or ask Jesse I think he is even more of a spokes person than I am.
