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?
