PR! PR! PR!

I don't know why I didn't blog this weekend. I hardly did anything on Sunday...

Warm up: 400m run - 20 burpees - 400m run and stretching

A: Back squat 4x8 at 80% 3rm

B: For time
50 calorie row
150 double unders
50 calorie row

C: 3 rounds of 20 GHD sit ups

Results A: 125# ... I still don't know what my 3 rep max is, just my 1 rep max. But this weight was pretty challenging to do that many times.

Results B: 13:26 ... It took about 175 rows to reach 50 calories. I did 300 single turns since I don't have double unders yet. I need to practice this for sure.

Results C: It was my first time doing these so I was squealing for dear life every time I went back. But hopefully I'll be able to do a full extension than halfway next time.

Warm up: 1k jog and stretch

A: Front Squat 7x1

B: 3 rounds for time
9 front squats
12 strict pull ups
50 double unders

Results A: 105-125-135-140-145-150-165-175 ... I obviously did more than I needed to. Coach D challenged me to go at 175 lbs. The last time I PRed, it was at 140 lbs. So I PRed 4 times yesterday! I'm happy.

Results B: 12:39 at 105 lbs, negative pull ups and 100 single turns
I had the hardest time cleaning the bar. I'm not jumping when I clean so I'm just doing a reverse curl. I also hit my boob pretty hard so that kind of hurt. I definitely need to work at cleaning better. That's the only thing I'm disappointed about. My negative pull ups are getting better. I still struggle but I can feel that I'm stronger. I used the jump rope Steven (my brother) gave me and since it's custom sized for me, it made jump roping easier.

All in all, I'm proud of myself so far. I fit my goal dress, and I'm barely starting my 3rd month at doing crossfit.

...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.
