Warm up: 1k run and Ero warm up

A: Back Squat x 20 (muscle endurance)

B: "Barbara"
5 RFT with 30 minute cut off
20 pull ups
30 push ups
40 sit ups
50 air quats
Rest 3 minutes in between

Okay first and foremost, you know how I posted that yummy looking pasta the other day? WORST DECISION EVER! During our stretches/warm ups, I felt SO sick. It was ridiculous. After the warm ups, I felt so sick that when I went to go pee, I looked at the toilet and threw up! HORRIBLE. Right before the back squats, I threw up. Right after the back squats, I threw up again. Talk about shock!!

Results A: Last time I back squatted at 155 lbs, this time, only 115 lbs because 1. my back was sore from the deadlifts and 2. I was feeling sick.

Results B: Negative pull ups, knee push ups
I completed 3 rounds + 20 pull ups + 30 push ups and 39 sit ups

After the nausea subsided, Cecilia and I were going to go get Indian food, all part of our post-paleo binging. Good thing we didn't. Some of the people at the gym invited us to go eat KBBQ. We ended up going to Shilla in Gardena. Ten of us showed up. This was my first outing with some of the crossfitters at Ero and it was a lot of fun. I ate better AND I drank, fail. But I was buzzed, laughed, got along with them. Just a good, and fun experience.

...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.
