Hello buttercups 🙂

It’s been a little while so even though I’m not totally sure what to post about I figured I’d give it a go….

In my last post I mentioned I was scheduled for a colonoscopy. Ok, gross. It wasn’t much fun and I have to say the prep is one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced. Not going into much detail on this one, sorry I’m not sorry.

Caught me, jacked that phrase from Katelyn. It works.

I know (kind of) what is wrong but not the cause. Biopsies were taken and the diagnosis isn’t solid yet so I won’t be sharing at this point. Once I get the phone call from my GI I’ll be sure to do a medical update! Yes, I’ll use big words. 😉


In terms of training, workouts are going well! Back to tire flips, sledgehammer slams, wall walking and PVC pipe carrying for fun. My upper body lifts are suffering a bit and I’m going to meet up with the trainer a few times until I can get them stable. Presses/dips are definitely not my strong point, I blame the bicep. Actually lie, I blame myself for not taking care of my body.

Take care of yourself.

Most recent upper body day-

Sesh #1 I felt pretty weak and it included – push ups (regular and hand release), DB presses, hanging knee raises, dips, lateral raises, walking planks and DB bench.

Sesh #2 I was quite happy with and included sledgehammer slams, tire flips, farmers walking, wall walks and push ups. I know push ups…. huge shocker there.

Lastly, and probably most importantly I found some new motivation.


May or may not have been thinking of the Death Race…. I can’t help myself.


Again, take care of yourself. I can’t even say it enough.


Any good videos?

Are you currently ‘unstable’ with any lifts?

    I’m glad you have an idea of what’s wrong now, but yeah, colonoscopies suck. I just remember my mom’s prep and how horrible it was. But having a dx is probably worth it. Sorry about feeling week on your workouts- hopefully in the next few days, you’ll feel better and be more stable!

    I love the takeaway from this post… To take care of myself.. I think we all need to hear that from time to time ! Keep us updated on your GI results <333

    Wow, after my last colonoscopy I was basically useless for a week. It took me FOREVER to get back into the gym. The prep just totally wiped out my body. I hope that YOU are taking care of yourself, girlie! Don’t push too hard!
