Birthday Weekend Recap & July Goals

So last weekend was my 22nd birthday if you didn’t realize that despite all my “birthday” posts. The CrossFit box I go to designs a special WOD whenever someone has a birthday, so Friday they made one for me.

WOD: 6 Squat Cleans, 27 Box Jump Overs, 19 Pull-Ups, 92 Double Unders, 19 Pull-Ups, 27 Box Jump overs, 6 Squat Cleans.

The numbers 19 & 92 make the year I was born. The number 6 and 27, form June 27th! Nifty right?! They made me feel special, until we actually had to do the workout. Then I realized it wasn’t so special that I was dripping with sweat, and everyone was cursing my birthday workout. Haha just kidding. It was a great workout.

On Saturday I went to Lubbock, Texas to meet up with a sorority sister to celebrate our birthdays since we’re both June babies. We had lunch and tried to go shopping, but decided getting fro-yo was a better idea.

Then we spent our afternoon at a outdoor bar restaurant place and we talked for hours. When you go from seeing someone almost every day during the week to almost once a month, you have a lot of catching up to do.

Later we went out to a few bars and had a great time. Then Sunday morning we split ways and headed back home. My time with her was too short, but I’m so happy I got to see her.

If I add any more goals on there I’ll have a hard time checking them off, so I’ll be realistic and stop right there. Have a joyous first day of July!

Do you have any goals set for July?

  1. Love that they design a new workout to fit your birthday! Looks pretty damn tough though hahah ;). Doing more pull-ups is on my goal list as well! I discovered randomly one day that I can do about two, so I was super excited about that, but want to be able to just rip out a set in the gym on a whim like a beast ;). Love all of your goals! Let me know if you need any help with self-hosting. It can be a major pain in the butt, but it’s so worth it.
