Tear. Clean. WHAT.

So, apparently I've been officially initiated into the Crossfit Community. Why?
I got my first callus tear. No, not WHILE doing a WOD, but because I kept picking at my callus and it snagged onto my shirt and made me bleed.

Warm up: 100 rope turns - 50 double unders - 100 rope turns
 
A: You have 15 minutes to find your 1 RM for Power Cleans
 
B: OC Throwdown WOD 1 Qualifier
AMRAP 10
15 power cleans 95/65
30 double unders
 
Results A: I PRed on power cleans on 10/26/12 at 125 lbs. I've been very self conscious about how I do my cleans ever since I did that women's seminar. Last night, after Coach D critiquing me and and helping me with my form, and after 3 failed attempts, I finally power cleaned the RIGHT way AND PRed at 135 lbs :) !! I have to remember to keep my posture, and use my legs, oh, and get under it fast, lol.  A lot to work on! When I was holding it, all I heard was Coach D say YEAHHH!! And there you go, hearing me suffering asking "DID I DO IT?" I did, and I forgot that I am now 25 years old and started jumping up and down flailing my arms with excitement, lol.
 
Results B: I was able to do 4 rounds plus 12 double unders! I'm horrible with double unders and at most, I can do 6 in a row. I did it at 65 lbs... so not only did I PR in my power cleans, I went prescribed too! I'm so happy!
 
After the WOD, I hung around the gym for a bit and ended up going to The Counter with my family. I got a 2/3 lb beef patty atop lettuce, with scallions, bacon, hardboiled eggs, mushrooms and basil pesto sauce. Excellent dinner.
 
I was having a good day, and it got even better! My brother gave me my Christmas presents (SUPER DUPER) early :) But it's never too early for presents :)
 
I got two Reebok Crossfit jackets, grey and red. And you know what... this is the first time in 3 years that I can finally fit a size large. And I don't care who knows, but my boobies are finally shrinking! YES I am happy about this! LOL. Check my jacket out! I'm all gross and sweaty from the WOD but pfft... perrretty snazzy!

...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.
