The only the thing I love more than Fridays, are Fridays that I get to sleep in until 6:45am!! YEP…… no Body Pump or Cycle for me this morning; just coffee and cat herding (getting all of my children ready for the day. I don’t actually have a bunch of cats).  

Today is a fun post for me because I get to introduce my sister-in-law, Natalie Whitehead.  



Say hello to Natalie, Aaron, their oldest daughter Neely, their youngest daughter Reagan, and they are expecting their 3rd……IT’s A BOY!

Natalie’s body is SICK!!!!! RIGHT?! I could literally go on and on and on and on about how amazing this woman is in the gym, but I think I may need another blog just for that ;-). So, let me just say, she’s obviously impressive.  This, however, is not why I wanted to feature her (ok it is a little).  Mostly, I feel like she can be such an inspiration to so many people.  She is 32 weeks pregnant, teaches preschool 2 days a week, stay at home with her other 2 on her off days, and still commits to Crossfit 3 times a week (5 days when she’s not pregnant).  It’s ok, go ahead, you can feel moderately bad about yourself now…..she puts us all to shame.    

I asked Natalie this morning if I could meet her at the gym and get a few shots of her during her crossfit workout and she was kind enough to oblige.  

Natalie’s WOD today was an AMRAP.  

20 Min: 10 box jumps – 10 deadlifts

She was nice enough to warm up with some thrusters for imaging purposes ;-). 

Oh, and she can still do a pull up!!!!

I told you…. impressive and deserves it’s own blog, so I am going to stop myself and give you YOUR WOD of the day.  Thank you Natalie for being our inspiration for the day!!!
