Warm up: 200 rope turns and stretch

A: Power Clean & Push Jerk 7x1

B: "Grace"
30 clean & jerk for time (135/95)

Results A: I was so disappointed in myself. I was having the worst trouble cleaning the damn bar. I don't want to make excuses, but I was so weak! I seriously was upset and wanted to just quit.

65-75-85-95-100-105-115

Good thing I didn't. I found my new PR at 115 lbs :)

Results B: 6:16 at 65 lbs ... I was still disappointed at my lack of strength. I couldn't get the technique down. Glad I finished though.

Ever since I told my brother that I've got the OK to attend the all levels sessions, he's been encouraging me to WOD with the other experienced crossfitters. Let me tell you, yesterday, I was the only noob. Talk about my comfort zone being, lack for a better word, broken. They're good peepz anyhow :) Needless to say, I felt disappointed that I was the last one to finish the WOD, but I felt good being around these people.

I'm not feeling as bad as the last few days.Today is my 4th day in a row. I hope I don't die. We'll be doing snatches today. I've only done it once. So... dun dun dun. We'll see. Gotta push through today then get ready for another busy weekend!

I can't wait for August to be over. Then I can go back to being a recluse. lol. BTW, I heard Gangnam Style on the radio yesterday. And it totally made my day.

...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.
