Monday Morning Rambles: Mari, You In Danger Girl

It is finally my favorite month...sweaters, cozy socks, thumbholes, changing leaves, crisp morning air, low humidity, new TV shows, scary movies, Halloween, the list goes on and on...Happy October

If you recall a few months ago, I had some medical issues arise which of course had me worried. This weekend I went to my “lady” doctor and thankfully everything is okay woohoo!  I have to go back in 6 months for a follow up but I am soooo grateful because the C word is off the table. 

However I didn’t think that I would walk out of his office having to think about having little “Mariettes” but apparently I need to start taking it serious. I legit felt like my doctor was Whoopie Goldberg in Ghost and he was like “Mari, you in danger girl”. 

 How can I fathom having a bambino when I don’t even have a man in my life (any volunteers?! Ha!)

It’s funny because I wanted to talk about October goals with y’all but maybe I should add “get knocked up” to the list. 

Anyways due to my health issues, my doctor had me on a medication which thankfully helped but unfortunately it really screwed with my hormones.  I had more than “normal” binge episodes these past few months and ended up gaining a few LBS that need to be evicted stat.  I’m back on my regular medication and I want to get back to my normal life so here are some of my goals for this month 
  • Drop 6-8 lbs
  • Deadlift 5x5 185lbs (currently at 165lbs and pr'd this morning at 1x3 at 185)
  • Chest Press 5x5 115lbs (I pr’d this weekend at 95lbs)
  • Squat 5x5 165lbs (this morning I hit 3x3 at 165lbs)
  • Work on my inversions; especially handstands
  • Incorporate core exercises a minimum of 2 times a week 
  • Try to have a no binge streak for all of October (this is the most important one for me) 
Do you have any goals for the new month?
