This is the picture I took on June 19, 2012 before I went into the box. I was close to tears because I was so damn scared.

Warm Up:
1k jog
Warm up

A: Front Squat 5 x 3
B: 5 Rounds each for time
200m run
5 x 10 Max Effort Unbroken Thrusters 155/115
Rest 1:1

It was my first day so I obviously had to scale it down. Unfortunately, I didn't take record my results. If I can remember correctly:

A: I started off with just a 35 lb bar. I believe I did 35 - 45 - 55
B: 45 - 55 - 65 - 75 - 85

I'm just guessing, lol. The 1k warm up jog itself was killer. Goes to show how out of shape I am. I was wheezing like that fat kid from Little Giants. I was embarrassed at the same time because I didn't realize JUST how out of shape I REALLY was. I'm the competitive type and it killed me knowing how I disappointed myself.

I was told by my coaches that I have a good form for squats. I think I could have handled more weight. I'm pacing myself and easing into it. There was one occasion when I was pushing my body so hard, that I started to bleed when it wasn't even the time of the month. TMI, but I'm being real here.

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
