Rest is for the...

...wickedly broken.

I'm still pretty peeved that I can't WOD to my fullest potential. I've been stretching my hand/thumb and it just feels BLAH.

On Monday, January 14, 2013, of course the WOD was all snatches. I say this every time, but I love snatches. Instead of the WOD the rest of my fellow crossfitters partook in, I did this:

A: Find 1RM for Reverse Row

B: For time:
30 wall ball shots
15 negative pull ups
30 wall ball shots
12 negative pull ups
30 wall ball shots
9 negative pull ups

C: 3 x 25 abs of your choice

Results A: 130 lbs ... I need to practice working on keeping my chest down and not rounding my back.

B: I used an 8# ball, making sure not to catch it too hard on my left hand. I added 40 jumping squats after I finished, making my time at 10:13

C: I just used the abmat and got my abs going

Yesterday, January 15, 2013...

A: Back Squat 9 x 2 (last 4 sets should be at 85% of 1RM)

B: 4 rounds:
Max reps push press (I did a Spear type movement, which I like to call The John Bender)
30 double unders (90 single turns)
Rest 60 seconds

C: Max effort: 400m run

Results A: 195 lbs

Results B: I used a 25 lb dumbbell for The John Bender. I swear my right arm is going to be buff, lol.
18-16-17-12 reps in those 4 rounds

Results C: 1:53 ... Cecilia and I started out strong, then about a quarter of the way, we both started jogging, lol. It's okay! We made it under 2 minutes so that has to be some kind of accomplishment!

I headed home right after so we could celebrate my mom's birthday! I'll post a picture right after.

So, now that I have no incentive (okay yes I do, healthy!) to stay Whole 30, I've been lagging big time. I haven't meal planned and I keep eating garbage. I have to get my shit together this week for sure.

...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.
