Looking Back

Tuesday, October 7, 2008
Work 6p-8a--154.5#

Today, I got up, dressed and began my short workout for the day, 20 16kg snatches on each side. When I first started working with kettlebells, the 8kg was my best friend, and I couldn't even imagine snatching a 16kg one the first time. Then, rolling the idea of going to the RKC over in my mind, 20 16kg snatches were not even in my realm of possibility. I destinctly remember thinking there was just no way that much weight was going up that many times. I was in absolute awe of the women listed as RKC's. That was 3 or 4 years ago now, long enough that I can't remember the date, only the feelings associated with it and loosely setting a goal for myself. As I look forward to this weekend (though I admit it's bittersweet since I'm leaving the hubbie behind for 5 days), I'm amazed at how far I've come, and I have to admit, I'm kind of looking forward to what the next 3 or 4 years hold.

Mom always loves playing with the grandkids, and what better toy than an empty paper towel tube?



My nephew was actually trying to crow in this picture, and it turned into this adorable grin.
