A Sherpa Wife I’m Not

Today I did a single leg power hop with my opposite foot on a stability ball for my 44.  

And, I’m completely aware that I look like a total goof in the video – I had already done 44 reps on each side and that was the 2nd attempt at a video so 20 extra reps!!!! Plus, I’m just not that coordinated!!!  The good news is I still got a major quad burn by the time I was done!!!

I did Cathe – Turbo Barre today.  Yikes!!!  I always forget how challenging that workout is! It is 75 minutes of  high reps – my hips are going to be sore but it’s good with the extra running!!!Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 6.55.43 AM

If you know Lindsay over at Cotter Crunch you know that she is the epitome of a Sherpa wife!!!   Her husband is a professional triathlete and she does everything in her power to help him and make his life and training as successful as possible.  I admire her in many ways!!

However, I don’t think that I will ever be considered a sherpa of any sort.  I want to be supportive and helpful and do OK right up until someone (like my husband) is sick.  And then it’s an epic fail!!!!

Especially when you consider the fact that when I’m sick Chris is all about taking care of me!!!Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 7.05.55 AM

I want to be more compassionate and I try but I always end up reverting back to the “suck it up” thing.  I would like to say that it causes me stress when Chris is sick and that is just how I deal with it but I think what it comes down to is I’m more selfish than I should be.

Maybe I should shadow Lindsay for a day or year or so (cause that’s not creepy at all!!!).

Are you a sherpa?  Does your husband wait on you when you are sick?

Happy Wednesday!!!


PS – after yesterday’s post about clothes and all I thought I would show you a picture of what I wore yesterday to run a ton of errands.  

standard winter attire
standard winter attire – yoga pants and a fleece top

I did wear shoes and not fuzzy socks!!!  Considering that it was about 7 degrees while I was out, I don’t feel at all bad.  And, I was super productive yesterday and made it through my entire “To Do” list!!!
