First, let me begin with my apologies for being MIA. Time has gotten away from me and I do not know how to get it back. I will use this post to answer two of your most common questions, the first of which will explain my lack of posting.
My last post about my grandmother has led some people to tears, myself included. Several people have asked me, “What happened last week Tuesday?” Well, last week Tuesday is no longer last week Tuesday, but Tuesday, February 25. The gentleman I had been seeing for two months asked me to be his girlfriend. Without a second thought, I said yes. Remember this post about the CrossFit Competition? The “amazing friend” and “CrossFitter D” are one and the same and I am proud to be able to call him my boyfriend. We may have traveled along a bumpy road that brought us to where we are now; but, the foundation to our relationship is built on friendship and trust because of it.
How exactly does this explain my lack of posting? First, I work from 9 am to 5 pm, roughly. Some days begin as early as 8 am and others end as late as 8 pm. Three days a week I WOD after work. One day a week I tutor after work. I spend my working hours staring at three computer screens. When I get home, the last thing I want to do is look at another computer screen. Second, I have been spending a lot of time with CrossFitter D. We WOD together then spend some time together afterwards. After we part ways for the night, I take Finn for one last walk before crawling into bed. (I hope he doesn’t get mad at me for putting some of the blame on him.)
The second question is, “Where did the name HonkyTonk Fit come from?” My friend M. came up with it. We were eating dinner at a Mexican restaurant in NYC last summer brainstorming ideas on the back of a postcard advertisement for the restaurant. We wanted the name to have the word “fitness” involved somehow, because of my passion for working out, staying in shape, and encouraging others to do the same. Fitness was shortened to fit as it sounded better. HonkyTonk came from my love of country music and similarity to the classic All-American Girl/Girl Next Door. My love of country is so well known, in March one of the vendors for the company I work for got me suite standing room only tickets to see Keith Urban at Madison Square Garden. Dustin Lynch and Little Big Town opened for him. If you only go to one country concert, go see Keith Urban.
Until next time, Fitters!
