Hello Fran nice to see you again.

So this may be my 4th or 5th Fran since I started CrossFit. She hasn't been very nice to me in the past. Woman thing I guess. OK, she's a bitch. There I said it. Today, we got along a little better. Maybe she was drunk. Who knows but I beat my old 45 pound time by almost 8 minutes. So there! Yeah I know, it was only 45 pounds but it was made clear in the post to shoot for 3-5 minutes and I couldn't do that at 65#, that was painfully obvious on Fran's last visit. Anyway, good way to start the day.

On to New Years. I'm making a resolution to not make any more drunken, impossibly ridiculous resolutions. I'm now referring to them as 'goals'. Who doesn't have a goal? So my goal is not so much for me as it is my kids. I'm feeling good, I have a good routine and I know what I need to work on. And really, some things you just can't stick to for that long. For example, don't yell at the kids, or don't give other drivers the finger even if they did something stupid. I can't put that much pressure on myself. I will however try to get my kids to eat healthier. Thats my only goal. It won't happen over night, and I'm not expecting them to say can I have more broccoli and asparagus please? But I need to get them to start trying new foods. It's not like I'm sending them off to the bus stop with a pop tart and a soda but they need to get out of the frozen chicken beaks and ass nuggets. So the plan is to have them try one of something that we are eating for dinner instead of one of what they eat. Starting small. Most of the time my daughter will at least try something, my son, no way. It takes a lot of convincing and tears to get him to even lick anything other than fries or yogurt. We'll see.

Lots of workouts to catch up on and can't really remember what I ate most of the days. I know I felt like shit after eating bruschetta and cheese New Years Eve. Too many carbs and dairy products for me in back to back days. I paid for it. But, it was a special occasion. Isn't that what we say to justify? Well, it was....
