Gimpy, once again.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Warm up: 200 rope turns and stretching ... I think I strained my knee so I didn't get to complete the entire 200 :( I did focus on more stretching and massaging my knee. Stupid knee.

A: 15 minutes to find 1RM Hang Snatch

B: 5 Rounds
200 m run
25 KB swings (53/35) - Vertical
Rest 2 minutes between rounds

C: bar muscle ups work, or pull ups and ring dips

Results A: When I'm standing straight, my knee hurts, but squatting didn't cause too much pain. I put most of my weight onto my right side (my left knee is the bad knee that I had to go ER for back in the day). I ended up maxing out at 75 lbs. I felt like I could do more so I tried 80 lbs but I just couldn't do it right. Maybe it was my lack of equilibrium.

B: I substituded the run with rowing and did 18 lb KB. I'm upset with myself! I don't know if it's TOM's wrath or what, but I don't know why I was so weak  yesterday. Anyways:

1:47
5:30
9:21
13:09
16:57

C: I was pulled aside to do some knee stretches so I didn't get to do part C. lol.

I'm so frustrated with myself, I just want to get better.

Anyways, as usual, I hang out with my brother post WOD. We were looking at pictures and saw someone do a one legged squat. He said most people squat but bounce to get back up and that it was good that I went slow and stayed at the bottom and pushed myself up.

I would like to thank Cardio Barre Beverly Hills for that! lol.

...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.
