May 2018

Fitness- Nothing too crazy this month. May really rocked my world with scheduling conflicts. I’m trying to get better at making my workouts a higher priority than work, but to be honest, a lot of the time I don’t see them that way. As long as I move a few times per week, but I’m productive in a professional capacity, I feel that’s where I should be right now. If I had to share my best gym highlight, it would be hitting 300lbs for a Hang Clean. I haven’t done that for a few years.

I also did the workout Murph this year on Memorial Day, and threw on a weighted vest for it. I was so sore for the entire rest of the week. Should have done more push-ups leading up to the event, but always glad to show my appreciation for those who lost their lives protecting me here at home.

I’m a little bummed that I didn’t have a “first-ever” class that I attended in May, but I’ll try to hit two in June! The plan was to go to my first-ever Orange Theory class, but I couldn’t coordinate schedules with my friend who coaches there. I’ll make it happen this month, though!

House-¬†As springtime quickly seems to turn into summertime, that means lawn care is in full effect! Typically, the lawn will get mowed twice a week, weed-whacking follows, and lots of little things here and there. The more fun project, however, is the constantly evolving garage gym we have. I don’t work out there often, but Em does, and it’s great to continue to create a space that we can escape to whenever life gets too busy!

Other- One of the music festivals we go to often happened this past month, so we spent a few days in Las Vegas attending EDC! It was held a month earlier than last year, and that meant the weather was PERFECT. We had an absolute blast!

Over the last month or so, I’ve started a few new segments on my blog. The first is my Weekly Throwdown, where I share quick workouts and exercises to keep you practicing skills and have some fun! The second is my Tip of the Week. In those videos, I’ll try to share tips and tricks on how to move better, and get more out of your time in the gym. Finally, I’m slowly reviving my “Drive Time with Smashby” videos. Since I’m always running all over town, sometimes the car is the only time where I have uninterrupted blocks of time to answer questions some of you ask. If you’ve checked out any of these videos, I hope you enjoy them!

What’s going on with all of you? I’d love to hear some of your accomplishments in May, or goals for June!
