This WeekFriday, August 24, 2012
Please excuse the radio silence this week. I planned on posting every day but it's been nonstop since last weekend! Celebrated a friend's birthday, air and water show, dinner at a friend's house, CrossFit, graphic design work, interviewing new potential interns for The Everygirl, an interview for an upcoming feature on TEG in a magazine (exciting!), two movies in the park, and Chicago Fire's white party.
CrossFit updates: When I first started three months ago I could barely do a push up so HSPUs were out of the question. I started with the modified version (knees on box, you're kind of upside down and go into a push up), and couldn't do one of those. Yesterday, I did FIFTY standing (upside down) on the box. Max push press on 8/15 - 70 lbs. Dead lift - 103 lbs.
Work has been busier than ever and I am doing my best to spend as much time with friends/enjoy being outside before Chicago freezes over. And the next month is going to be crazy. We're hiring new fall interns, I leave for LA next weekend, NYC with Alaina the following weekend (for NYFW!), will be celebrating my 30th (holy crap) the weekend after that, and the last week of the month we are hosting an event for TEG. I am exhausted just thinking about it.
