    Twins Basil…twins…
    Made up Diane yesterday with 60 kg, 10:27. Underestimated myself on the deadlifts, I’d like to give it another go soon with the prescribed weight

    Just weighed in at the dr at 134, the most I have ever weighed. Very pleased about this development.
    Will be in tonight to give this workout a try despite the fact that everything hurts. Doubling down on fish oil and aleve.
    I think we should plan a going away party for Brendon, a/k/a Coach Sassy, don’t you all??

    Steph- I think you miscounted the weight on your deadlifts yesterday. Didn’t you have a girl bar (15), 10s (20) and 5s (10) on each end? 45kg. I think that is why I asked you if you were doing that weight. Or maybe I am just going crazy.
    Margaret- I am definitely in for a going away party. I guess you just took up the job in planning it 😛

    Today’s WOD: 17:50
    I think the plan for Brendon is to meet up at Fado’s Saturday night for a few drinks. It was Brendon’s idea. More info soon.
    Today was Katie’s last day at the gym. For those of you who don’t know her, she is the one holding the cute puppy in the picture.
    Katie is moving to D.C. to start her career.
    Good luck Katie!
    (Now that I typed her name three times in this post, I hope I spelled it correctly. I have had a habit of spelling it wrong before and now I can’t remember which way was correct! argh!)

    I will be out of town this weekend, so that’s sad. I’ll check with Brendon to see if he has a tolerance for two parties, and plan something that’s not on a holiday, if permitted to do so.
    Good luck Katie! You and your puppy will be missed.
    No more people moving, please.

    You don’t know how happy it makes feel to hear that you are excited about gaining weight.

    Holy crap. That is the third time this morning I’ve heard someone use “differential equation” in a conversation.
    The other two times were in the gym.
    What’s wrong with you people?!?!
    More beer talk!

    Thanks everyone! I am really going to miss Crossfit Atlanta – especially since Brent finally started spelling my name right. And I went with this job because it involves no concrete:)

    I made the comment to one of my female running friends that Crossfit Atlanta is a place where the women members all gain 10 pounds and feel good about it. That was apparently not the right thing to say — she was curious about trying Crossfit as a substitute for Pilates, but I think that comment scared her off.

    Oh I so want to say something about this picture but will hold back due to my love of puppies….On a good note Mick Vick is out of jail…

    Yeah, it doesn’t go over very well in the “outside” world. In crossfit
    world, it’s cool to bust out of your jackets and shirts!

    SAD.

    Thanks for your support, Vas. 9 lbs and counting, although not really,
    because that’s the first time I have weighed myself in a long time. I
    was shocked, but in a good way, because I know it’s muscle and I feel
    great.

    It’s cool in the outside world, too. Except in the outside world people are afraid to admit that to look athletic and bust out of your jacket you have to gain weight.

    Steve, tell them instead how “toned” the girls at CF Atl look. You know, like Michelle Obama.

    What up dudes and dudettes. Yes, it’s true, I’m moving to San Francisco in 4 days. So I figured I’d do the classy thing and throw a going away party for myself. The plan is to meet up at Fado’s this Saturday night @ 9pm sharp. The beer will flow like the salmon of capistrano, I’m going to bring my funnel from highschool, Brent already talked about wearing a white t-shirt…not sure where that will go but it’s cool, we’ll have a great time. Even if I don’t know you or never met you, at least give me a shot before I leave. Ok, that is all. Hope to see yooz guys Saturday night!!

    10:29
    Evening
