Going hard.

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't really finish off the week, I've been busy. I'm lazy but here's my WODs and results from last week!

Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Attended the Advanced 5 pm class

Warm Up: 1k run and Ero warm up

A: Power Clean & Push Jerk 5 x 3

B: 5 RFT
400m run
10 Clean & Jerks (115/85#)

Attended the All Levels 6 pm class

Warm Up: 1k jog and Ero warm up

A: Front Squat 7 x 1

B: Weighted Pull Ups

C: 400m walking lunges

Looks easy right? HAYLLL NAH.
Results A/B: I wasn't really following the WOD, but Coach D had me up on the lifting platform (talk about stage fright, lol). We were trying to find my 1 rep max. I PRed at 195 lbs :) So I was working through the part B of the WOD while everyone else moved on to the pull ups. He told me to get a few sips of water and I made 3 attempts at a heavier weight, which I thought was 205 lbs at the time... but come to find out that Coach D got me at 220 lbs! I failed all 3 attempts but when he told me how much I was actually lifting on those 3 fails, I didn't feel so bad. A new goal to work for!

Results C: Finished at 19:03 ... TALK ABOUT PAIN. I'm STILL sore from it :(

I didn't WOD at Ero, but I did attend an all women's seminar at another local gym. It was a seminar/workshop on olympic weight lifting. It was very informative. I was able to learn about how to breathe properly, engage the entire torso and how to hold a proper form in order to prevent injury and to lift without problems.

This was my 6th time exercising in a week, and I must say... I was super dead. My hands were raw from the barbells and whew... I felt like I sucked. But improvements are always a good thing. Hopefully, I can utilize what I learned soon.

I'll post again with some pictures from this weekend!

...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.
