400m run

Rest 1:30 min
400m run
10 burpees
Rest 1 min

C: 3 min. max effort of double unders

Results A: 65-75-85-95-105 ... my last set really was pushing it. At least I made it over 100 lbs! I'm really particular about my form and I'd rather perform at lower weights than hurt myself. Lol. I definitely need to pay attention to what weight I'm putting on. I have the tendency to miscount. Yes, I'm Asian. No, I cannot do basic arithmetic :p

Results B: 3:55 - 10:01 - 15:18
I really hate running. Although I felt like I was going to die, I can already feel the difference. I think this is my 5th or 6th WOD and I'm already feeling better. I now understand why many hate burpees. It doesn't help that before I even warmed up, I decided to try doing Double Unders (DU) I felt my bad ankle pop (the one I sprained, and I didn't rehab it correctly :( lol )

Results C: I did 12 DU! I need to find my momentum but it was fun trying. I told my brother how many I did in 3 minutes and he couldn't believe it. So when he got home yesterday, when I was already lying down and relaxed, he brought his jump rope out and told me to do some outside. I guess when I get home, I re-do some of the workouts to show him. He said he was impressed and that made me feel pretty damn good. Can't wait to actually do 12 in a row!

After a running-intensive work out, I read 50 Shades of Grey last night (I'm 200 pages shy of finishing) and lol, no wonder they were saying it improved women's sex lives.

 
Anyways, I hope you all have an awesome 4th! Stay safe and RAGE ON!

...so about that comfort zone

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!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 



Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
