Warm up: 200 rope turns and usual warm up

A: Hang Clean + Front Squat 7 x 1

B: AMRAP 12
30 double unders
20 wall ball shots
10 strict pull ups

Results A: 55-60-65-75-80-85-95
I think I could have done more weight but my left shoulder was hurting. I think it was from the overhead squats from the previous day's exercise. I felt pretty damn good though. Another member who has been doing crossfit for a year did 95 pounds and I did 95 pounds on a sore shoulder and I've been there for only a month.

B: I scaled down to 90 single turns (I definitely want to practice my double unders on my own), 8 lb wall ball shots, and negative/jumping pull ups. I did the negatives when I can, but whew! What a freaking work out. I ended up doing 3 rounds, 90 single turns, 20 wb shots and 6 pull ups. When Coach P told us we had 30 seconds left, I was preparing for my pull ups.

What I try to control in the gym is my OCD. Usually when I'm about to clean or pick up a bar, I lock my thumbs in ready for hook grip, but I have to wiggle my fingers 4 times. My OCD tendencies are by 4. So, while I was on the box to do my pull ups, I was gripping the bar, but this time, my feet started pitter-pattering and my coach saw that and said it was cute, lol. I totally thought about... FLASHDANCE!

(I couldn't find the one I wanted, so this will have to do, 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 …
