My Awesome Birthday

  So for my birthday yesterday I got four new water bottles (I have a weird obsession with water bottles, don't ask) I also have an obsession for school supplies.  It started when I was 8 and I can't seem to get rid of it.  There is something about a new thing of pens and pencils, gets me every time.  I also got a card from Jordan that said I could do cross fit for one month and he put money in it for me to use.  So excited to die next month!  Cross fit is so insane, I'm at least going to do it for a month.

I also got how i met your mother season 7 from my awesome brother Brian!  This should keep me entertained for about a week.  Maybe I should try to control myself to one episode per day so I am not sad like when Lost or prison break ended.  

Me with my birthday present (I don't ask for much, just some water bottles)

 me with my cute sisters
My obnoxiously tan family!  Like seriously have they not heard of skin cancer?  just kidding.   I am so white compared to them.  I don't like torturing myself outside in  in Arizona.  I only go outside if its from 5-8 am or 10-12 pm.  

Here is the cross fit work out I did last week:

warm up: 1 mile or 2,000 m row

Filthy Fifty
50x box jumps (there was a tire there and you had to jump on and off of it fifty times)
50x pull ups (I used a band to make it easier, not possible to do regular pull ups ahhh)
50x kettle ball swing
50x walking lunges (each leg)
50x toes to bar (hang from a bar and bring your knees to chest or make your toes touch the bar while hanging on)
50x push press
50x back extension or dead lift
50x wall ball (take a 20 pound ball and squat down and when you come up throw the ball as high as you can against the wall and catch)
50x burpees
50x double unders  (or jump rope 100 counts)

I about DIED.  The entire time there is super loud music and a guy yelling at you and everyone is going super fast.
Here is a preview of cross fit for those of you who haven't heard of it

The workout I did today took about an hour and forty minutes.  Ugghh too long.  I wanted to fall over by the end of it.  

Please do not pay for a personal trainer ever.  Cross fit is wayyyy cheaper and such a better work out!


  1. I'm with you, Sam. Being white is way better because you don't have to suffer outside in the heat! Plus, we'll be wrinkle free when we're old farts (hopefully). Happy birthday!

  2. I'm glad you had an awesome Birthday!! I loved seeing pictures of your fam. I miss them! Love the water bottles too-goood choice :)

  3. Happy belated! I have to wonder if your school supply obsession also began when your dad took us to Target for back to school shopping! : )
