How everyone should start their day...

Well the girls go to school on Mondays and this morning I was given their fall school pictures... Oh my this is how everyone should start their day...

But before we get to that Garth and I did the "Helen" WOD at JENKS and this was our results...
What is Helen?


3 Rounds for time of:

400 Meter run

21 Kettlebell swings (Men 55 lbs, Women 35 lbs)

12 Pull-ups

So, see how fast you can get all of this done...

Our Strength exercise was Overhead Squats



Nat doing an overhead squat with bar

WOD: Helen substituted 35# Kettlebell for a 25# and counted unassisted (NO BAND!!) Pull Up attempts

Strength = 75# PR (Personal Record WAHOOO!!)

Garth doing a Kettlebell swing

WOD: Helen As Prescribed (RX'd) means he did it as it was written and no substitutions


Strength: Overhead Squat = 175#

We are both improving for sure!! At my last CFC workout I could only overhead squat the bar and tonight I did 75#!!

Dinner tonight was awesome I tried to create the same roasted chicken that they have at Whole Foods and I would have to say it came pretty dang close!!!

1package of organic chicken thighs covered in Thyme, Rosemary a little salt and pepper.
1 cup of organic chicken broth over the chicken and carrots... Bake at 400 for about 45 minutes covered
