Fridizzle fo drizzle.

Friday. It is. And it was drizzling all morning. The hell? It's summer, for Pete's sake. It started raining a little yesterday when I was at the gym.

Thursday, 7/12/12

Warm up: 200 rope turns (which I'm starting to get better at, except I keep whipping myself on the back of my neck, lol) and stretching

WOD:

A: Front Squat
1x10 @ 60%
1x8 @ 70%
1x6 @ 75%
1x4 @ 80%

B: 10 minutes to find 1 RM: Ground to Overhead

C: 5 Rounds for time
Run 400m
Rest 90 seconds

Results A: I was told to do 4 sets of 5. 55-65-75-85
I ended up doing one more set because since both coaches approved of my squats, Coach D encouraged that I put more weight. So I ended up doing one more set at 95 lbs. The other coach whose name I have yet to learn made me laugh because he mentioned my "face of determination", thus resulting me squatting down and LOL-ing while Coach D was yelling at me to shoot back up. I did my 5 reps and I felt good. I should've done more. Baby steps = progress!

Results B: Since I'm still a beginner, Coach D instructed that I skip B :(

Results C: It started to rain and wanted the beginners to do at least 3 sets of 500m rowing. If I felt good after the 3, then I was encouraged to do a total of 5 sets, with 90 seconds rest in between. I wasn't really keeping exact track of time but I did about 5 sets in 2:30. So I averaged out to about 18:30.

As my usual Thursday ritual, I went to visit Nancy at work. Bought some new sandals. Came home and Steven showed me how to prepare and cook the bacon wrapped asparagus. Simple, lol.



Came to work feeling like a hot bitch.

Ate my delicious home-made food. I also made my version of deviled eggs... SO not paleo, lol. It has light mayo and salt mixed in the yolk, topped off with paprika. YUM!


Yesterday, I bought two shirts from my gym and I hope to wear it tomorrow at the CrossFit Games! Maybe I'll see you there! Feel free to email me, so maybe we can meet up :)

...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.
