Back to the Gym

Hey everyone....how are you?  I am fine....Yesterday was my first day back at the gym and let me tell you....it made a difference.  It felt great to be back in the gym and I am super sore today.

Also, there is a Workout Of the Day in CrossFit (WOD) that is called Murph....named after a Lieutenant Michael Murphy of the Navy Seals that died in action in 2005.  It was his favorite workout and it consists of 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 squats, 1 mile run.....now, I am a member of a FB group where they have been training for this workout since May 1....I just was not sure I could do it....so, sadly I did try and I kinda regret it (because I feel strong).  Now I know I cannot do a pull up at all, bu there are modifications for pull ups if you can't do them...and I should have tried....why am I telling you this?  Because I want to post it here the I am going to do it next year for Memorial Day.....my end of 2020 year goal is to be able to do a pull up, and my Memorial Day 2021 goal will be to do a Murph Workout.....wish me luck!

As for knitting.....well, my sister has discretely asked for some more dishcloths.....she wants 2 in burnt orange/white for the Lakehouse, 2 in blue jean blue/white for her house in SA, and 2 in cornflower/white for Grace (for when Grace moves into her apartment).  So I placed an order with Joann.com....and they are running like a week behind on curbside....so I canceled the order and just went and bought yarn.

Thankfully I had the burnt orange and some white

Made these

I have the yarn for the others and will cast on today and this week

Why did I get 3 cornflower and only 2 blue jeans....well, because my mom's birthday was this past Saturday and I went to have a nice dinner with her and my daddy......and she wants 2 also, and I think the cornflower will go well in her kitchen.  Here we are together (the coloring in this photograph does not show the real blue of her kitchen...the blue in the picture of my daddy shows the better blue color) and my daddy making a flambeau pepper steak (on fire).

I got my skein of yarn for my Jimmy Beans Wool Blanket (I really need to get a move on with that project).

Lastly, I got some pompoms for hats that were on sale.....

That is all I have this week....Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
