 Today's #WOD post my amazing girls weekend was brutal! I had to do the workout earlier and I was afraid I would have had to do it alone. My hubby, @crossweb, was able to work his schedule around and suffer beside me. I appreciate him greatly, especially today, because not only did he workout with me, but he was also able to take care of our 3 crazy boys this past weekend while I spent some quality times with my girlfriends. We both did RX and shockingly we were very close to one another. Ben completed it in 22 minutes and I was 23:23. Of course, when I do 100 pull ups, I always tear. I hate it that I am starting to get used to these man hands. Please, share your secrets (besides gloves) to help spare your hands. #couplesthatcrossfittogetherstaytogether #manhands #callus #crossfit #cfmabry #fitness #fitfluential #atx #austin #texas #ourfullplate
 When in South Carolina, you basically eat like there is no tomorrow. I know I have a food blog and I am sorry that I have been holding out on all the delicious food I have been eating but here is a wrap up. From top to bottom and left to right: homemade egg omelets with lots of veggies, bacon, and sausage; fresh fruits; homemade (and finger lickin' good) fried chicken, salmon salad, lamb chops; and prime rib. Not pictured are melt in your mouth biscuits and some desserts that @gimbrig, @mcmainelli and I ate too quickly to snap a picture! That, and we didn't want evidence that we ate our way through this amazing weekends!!! #paleo #paleoish #notpaleoperfect #southerncooking #southcarolina #plantationlife #thisishowedogirlweekends #roomiesforlife #backonthewagon #ourfullplate
 Behind the scenes on our run this morning with the amazing and beautiful @gimbrig who is 6 months pregnant. Who wouldn't run everyday if you could run under these beautiful, antebellum Spanish Moss trees?!?!

 Day two of plantation living consisted of waking up and horseback riding around the rice patties and Cumby River followed by a BIG southern breakfast. We even got to see alligators and two bald eagles. This is the life. So excited to be spending this quality time with my great friends. #plantationlife #thisishowedogirlweekends #BostonCollege #roomiesforlife #blessed #ourfullplate
