A quick Crossfit update: I’ve attended my second On Ramp class, and I’m even more excited about Crossfit now than I was when I posted about my first class. I took the initiative to go early on Tuesday to get a run in before class — I know if I want to commit to Crossfit, I’m going to have to fit my running in when I can — and it was a hot and sweaty run! The class was a little more fast paced this time, and I had barely stopped sweating from the run before we were completing our WOD:
8 minutes AMRAP
6 KB swings
8 air squats
10 Abmat sit ups
I loved this workout! After I had started my second round, Coach Zach called 1 minute in and right there I decided to try to complete 8 full rounds — and I ended up completing my goal plus more! Woo hoo! That’s one of the million awesome things about Crossfit — it is more than a workout, it’s like playing a game. I love that!
In other news, I have some very, very big news: Zach and I have found a house! I wanted to wait to post too much about this until we were further into the process, but we’ve crossed the Home Inspection hurdle, and it’s looking more and more like this isn’t going to fall through, so I’m going to tentatively announce that we have found our house!!
One of the main things that have been bothering me about apartment living since the weather has gotten warm was the lack of outdoor space. It’s kind of a bummer when Zach and I are sitting around in our apartment when we could be relaxing on a porch. Our new house not only has a front porch, but also a back deck! The wood is weathered, but our home inspector assured us that the frame was solid so we can eventually replace the boards.
…and look at that yard! Frank is excited just looking at it 🙂 Not to mention, the current owners have a dog and they have installed a doggie door in the basement that leads right out to the yard. Frank will be in heaven!
I’ll refrain from posting pictures of the inside of the house because the current owners are very much still living there, but I’ll tell you it is perfect for us. The first floor has a semi open plan, newly updated kitchen, hardwood floors, two bedrooms, a full bath and even a “bonus room” that the current owners are using as a bar area (we’re considering doing the same). The second floor is all ours in the form of a master suite — bedroom, sitting area (could double as a nursery for a newborn — not that we’re there yet), full bath and huge walk in closet! It’s really more than I could have asked for in our price point. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of our closing.
Question of the Day:
Are you a homeowner, or do you rent? What are the pros and cons of each?
