I was reminiscing on a fun trip to Puerto Rico that the hubby and I took (see some photos below) It was in early February, right after the Holidays. We escaped winter for a little bit and recharged our batteries. We enjoyed delicious food and drinks but also went for runs and used our hotel gym. It was a great way to kick off 2015 and the many extraordinary things that  have occurred this year. 

Let me tell you about my workouts this week…yesterday, I was feeling good and relatively pain-free so when I saw overhead squats in the WOD I told myself I’d try them but with the lightest barbell. 

It was a 15 AMRAP:

6 OHS (35#)

8 Push Presses (35#)

10 Preggo Burpees

I was able to do 8 full rounds with a couple of minutes to spare.

Tonight, I stayed home and did a quick 3 rounds with my 8# dumbbells:

20 biceps curls 

25 squats

8 tricep extensions (each arm)

40 side bends 

The workout above would be perfect for someone easing their way back to working out. Simple, but effective movements. 

I hope to continue feeling better! Please wish me luck 🙂 

Here are some Puerto Rico pics:

Hi! My name is Julia and I'm a 30-something year-old Paraguayan-born, New Jersey toddler mom. My passion for fitness started when I was 15 years old and joined my local YMCA to learn how to properly strength train. Although I briefly joined my high school track team my junior year in high school, I consider myself a late-bloomer as an athlete. I'm a CrossFit Level 1 coach who first discovered CrossFit with a personal trainer 3 years ago and have been loving it ever since. My other passion is running! To date, I've completed 10 half-marathons and 2 marathons, including Philadelphia and New York. Combining endurance running and CrossFit WODs has helped me obtain PRs as well as age group awards over the past 2 years. I hope to inspire and motivate other mere mortals like myself in leading active, healthy lifestyles!
