Fight Gone Bad...

3 Rounds, 1 Minute each exercise, 1 Minute break between each Round:
(Count your reps- as many as you can get in a minute)

Squats w/ 10 pound med. ball- squat and throw ball to 10ft.
Sumo Dead Lift High Pulls (45 pound bar)
Box Jumps (14 inch box)
Push Press (45 pound bar)

So, a minute for each excercise with no rest until finished w/ all 5. Do it 3 times. Keep track of how many reps you do for each excercise. Add up total at end. This is the third time I've done this work out. The first time I threw up (but I finished!!) and ended up with like 175!! This time I had a total of 263. Landon had 370. He's a freak of nature, though:)

I challenge you to try it- or make your husband's try it!! Post your results!

Operation Spandex, day 1

5 Rounds (for time):
12 reps Dead Lifts
9 reps Hang Cleans
6 reps Shoulder Press

Total Time: 7:01

5K (not going to mention how long it took)

Aaahhh, good times...


WOW!! I don't even know where to start! Sometimes God gives you amazing opportunities. I still don't know how it came about, but I am going to Costa Rica in June for a Volleyball Missions Trip. I'll be on tour there for ten days!! I know it sounds silly, but I still have dreams of playing competitively. This is an incredible way for me to combine two of my passions; God and volleyball:) And I'll be playing with college players (some of whom were in 7th grade when I was first married). So please pray that everything goes well with the fundraising- also pray that I can slide back into some spandex shorts, haha.

Woo Hoo!

Last year when we moved back to Hot Springs, I got together with another coach in the area and we started a Club Volleyball program for girls in this area. Last year was rocky to say the least. We had 3 teams and really only went to 2-3 tournaments. But we stuck through it and this season, we doubled!! We have 6 teams! We have girls from 9-17 years old, and my 17's team has 5 tournaments this season. After a rough start with our first 2 tournaments, we rallied together for a big weekend in Little Rock! We ended up winning First Place in the Silver division!!!! We went undefeated the second day of the tournament. I think I was more excited than the rest of the girls! This really is a big deal- my team is playing in the 17's division, but the majority of my girls are 15 and 16!! So this means we can only get better for next year, since we will still be in the 17's. Here are some pics after our WIN!!

I absolutely love weddings! I think it has to do with the fact it's one of the few times I can get all dressed up and cut loose. I love these pictures because the first one says so much about our relationship!! I think Landon was in the middle of saying something that I didn't quite agree with?? And I really love the second picture of us. There's just something about a man in a suit:)

It's been too long!

I will admit, I'm not too great at keeping up with the whole blogging thing- so I have a few posts to get caught up!

January was a fun month! The kids and I were still out for Christmas break and Landon had an opportunity to play in a charity basketball game. It was a Harlem Globetrotters-type exhibition match where the other team basically tries to embarrass a bunch of old guys or former athletes:) It was really great to watch Landon come in and surprise them! I still think that Landon was a better basketball player than football player! The best part of the night was halftime. I don't know what it is about Landon's dad, Steve, but everywhere we go, ge gets pulled out to dance. I think he just has the whole goofy, white guy thing going on! So I had to post some pics of Steve getting down with his new girlfriend...
