One of my closest and best friends is leaving the US of A to Valencia, Spain. I truly regret not taking more time to hang with her these past 6 months, but life happens. For the next 6 months, she will be pursing her dream in a country full of beauty.
Although I'm sad that she's no longer a drive or a text away, I know she's going to do truly amazing things. It made me realize what I want to do with my life... and I know exactly what I want but I'm too afraid to do it. I hope once the pang of realization hits, I'll be on the right track of pursing my dreams.
Lucy, you got this. By the time you come back, I hope I'm in the process of getting that hippo.
Ever since the holidays, I fell off the paleo wagon HARD. I know I've mentioned this before, but now I'm really seeing the differences from being paleo, to... not. As a matter of fact, the following has gotten worse since pre-paleo, to full paleo, to 80% paleo, to the shitter. Allergies: I would normally get my eye allergies and sneezies out in the morning by 8:00 am. While I was doing the challenge, my allergies were practically non-existent. Now, my allergies last almost all day, and I thought I was getting sick, but no... just allergies. All day, all the time.Sleep: I would sleep maybe 4-5 hours a night, waking up maybe twice at the most. While on the challenge, by the 2nd week, I slept through the whole night, PLUS felt great in the morning, not the typical sluggish crap... and by the time I got home from work and WODing, I still had energy to pull together a full meal to eat for dinner AND meals for the next couple days. As of late, I get maybe 5-6 hours of sleep a night, …

I have been lagging with updates on my WODs, sorry I'm not sorry, lol. I've been pretty upset with myself because I can't lift overhead or even hook grip without having my thumb/wrist hurt. At least I can finally pinpoint where my pain is EXACTLY. If I hold on to the bar in front rack position without hooking my thumb around it, I can put weight on there, but once I loop my thumb around, BOOM. I've been stretching like hell.
Anyways, I started off on Saturday, January 12, 2013 with a morning WOD.
Warm up: Cali and Ero warm up
A: Back Squat 5 x 5
B: 5 Rounds for Time
15 back squats 135/95
10 toes to bar
Results A: 175 lbs... I hope to get a badonk soon, cuz all I've been doing are squats.
Results B: 25:43 Rx :)
About time I did a WOD to help my ego! Although while I was doing the toes to bar during hte 4th round, towards the end I started feeling the fatigue but I pushed through it anyway. I just gotta remember to keep stretc…
So like, sorry for the lack of updates. I didn't realize that I was actually going to be busy these past few weeks. How was your holiday? Did you eat clean and train hard?
Me, not so much eating clean, but I've been training pretty damn hard.
Well, not this past week.
If I've learned anything this past week, make sure when you're lifting, your mind is there with you. On December 28, 2012, I went in to WOD with a cluttered mind, thus not concentrating. I've been very uncomfortable with weight on my chest and we were doing front squats. I was about to PR that lift at 200 lbs, but I don't know what happened (yes, I do. I dropped my elbows), I don't know why I bailed (yes, I do. The weight scared me)... but I dropped it and it ended up crashing on my left thumb over extending it. So my wrist/thumb has been shot since then :(
So, I've been pretty disappointed that I haven't been blogging my results. It's okay. I w…
