Thank you for all of your comments on yesterday’s post! I read each and every one of them and didn’t respond to any. I used to be really good at responding to comments, but recently I’ve just gotten lazy. Or like with all of these miscarriage posts, there are only so many times that I can say thank you. But I really should respond THANK YOU to each and every one of them, because that’s exactly what I want to say.
Take this as your own personalized comment response:
Anyway, last Saturday was my first time back at Track Stars in nearly a month! It felt so good getting prepared to go – I had so much energy to burn (aka Paula Deen Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake). I usually just make up the workouts right before I head out the door, but this particular time, I knew I wanted to do GPP’s “Pie Burn” workout that I’d seen on Janetha’s blog. All she said about it was that it was long and hard (TWSS). No really, she did really say that…in her post.
Katy and I were the only ones to show. But that was A-OK because I absolutely love working out with my sister. We laugh and sweat and push each other until we want to give up. But we never give up. That’s just not cool. Pie Burn took forever but it was an AWESOME workout and the perfect start to my Saturday – go here and do it yourself. I recommend bringing a friend along so you can compete and then split a smoothie afterwards.
I believe (and I could be wrong – no I think I’m definitely wrong) that GPP’s motto is “Rise Above.” I feel like I’ve seen that somewhere on their site. ?? Anywhoo, I like that motto – Rise Above, because it can pertain to almost anything in life.
Rise above haters.
Rise above your circumstances.
Rise above 3,500 feet if you want to skydive successfully and not die.
Rise above your fears.
Rise above those voices of self-doubt.
To RISE ABOVE is to be THE better person, A better person. To RISE ABOVE is to be in control of your emotions. To RISE ABOVE is to be awesome.
(Segway into giveaway – pretend it’s nice and flowy….oh crap, I forgot to erase this.)
My friends at Rise Bar (get it, get it) have offered to be awesome, RISE ABOVE and give out some of their yummy bars to you guys!
I had already fallen in love with Rise Bars before they sent me a box for review, so getting a huge selection in the mail was the icing on the cake. Every Rise Bar is all-natural, which means NO preservatives, NON-GMO, and non-sulphured food. Many are vegan and ALL are GLUTEN FREE!
My favorite – the Almond Honey Protein bar!
