It got me.

Influenza finally got me. I've been sick for over a week and it sucks. I finally went back to work yesterday and I finally went to WOD! It nearly killed me.

Anyways, lots of new things are happening, rather exciting at that... well... maybe to just me it's exciting... but I'll let you know as soon as things are settled. No, I'm not engaged, pregnant, or moving out! I'm still dating the same knucklehead, Dan and I still enjoy living at home! LOL.

Just wanted to say hey to my readers and thanks for sticking around with my horrible spurts of hiatuseses.

Come Friday and this weekend, I may just go on a crazy rant rampage!

I hope you're all taking care of yourself! <3

Busy Week!

I hope you all had a good week last week! I'm not one to go all out for Valentines' Day, cuz face it... you should show your love every day, not just because it's a Hallmark Holiday. Although their cards are pretty cute, lol. I received my first Edible Arrangements from a good friend. Needless to say, the chocolate covered strawberries were devoured first. On the 14th, I went over to Dan's area and we decided to have dinner at our favorite Italian place called Aruffo's in Claremont. His gift to me? Shaving his beard off! :) Look at that handsome face.

Snatches & YOLOing

Thursday, February 7, 2013 Warm up: 1k run and Ero warm up A: Power Snatch 7 x 1 B: "Randy" 75 power snatches for time 75/55 C: 3 x 20 V-ups Results A: I was shooting for setting another PR but I just didn't have the strength in me to do it. I did get to 100 lbs though. My PR was at 110 lbs. Results B: 9:52 Rx :) I'm glad I went Rx'd but I wish I finished faster. After about 7-10 snatches, I would have to stop and stretch my wrist out. It's definitely getting stronger and healing. Just gotta pay attention to it. After the WOD, I went thome to get ready. Everyone who said they'll go with me ended up flaking on me. Saddity. Anyways, it was my WOD partner's birthday celebration at Chelsea's in Hermosa. We ended up drinking and bar hopping over to American Junkie and got our untz untz on. Poor Mike, the birthday boy, got so wasted we ended up going to Taco Sinaloa. He does not remember suggesting this. LOL. Please see bottom right picture below. On…

CrossFit Total and Beautiful Creatures

Monday, February 4, 2013 CrossFit Total Time! 3 attempts at 1 RM: Back Squat Shoulder Press Deadlift I PRed on each lift. The numbers below are my before/after PRs 235/240 lb Back Squat 85/90 lb Shoulder Press 285/290 lb Deadlift I PRed on each lift by 5 lbs. It's not much but considering I'm still sore on my sprained wrist/thumb, I did well! CrossFit Total: 620 lbs I talked to my brother about it, and according to some chart, my weight bracket... my total should be around 520 lbs. So I'm in between the Advanced/Elite level for this. True or not, I was so damn happy about my PRs. Here's an unflattering picture, but I got that deadlift! I have been going to crossfit on a daily basis but I'm not blogging about each WOD anymore. Maybe it's because I'm still injured, but I'm trying to balance my life out more :) Last night, Nancy and I went to the Beautiful Creatures Screening in Hollywood. Let me tell you... this was an adventure. We were runing late a…

The Electric Run - San Diego

This weekend, Nancy, Ana and I drove down to San Diego for The Electric Run! We left at 7 am on Saturday morning, and chilled at the hotel. My cousin, Renz (tall dude in Flash below) picked up our packets so we attended my cousin's son's 1st birthday party! I was reluctant to go, especially since I only met these cousins at my reunion a couple years ago. It ended up being really fun. Filipinos = Karaoke. Yeah, I learned that I am a horrible singer. Standing: Ana, Noelle, Renz, Baby AZ, Jazyl, me Floor: Nica, Ralph Ana wore an Avengers Shirt, Nancy wore traditional Batman, and I wore Pop! Batman
Renz and I at the end of the race. Dat tutu doe. Ana, me, Nancy, Grace, and Mike It was a pretty good weekend. Yesterday, Nancy, Ana and I headed out to the Carlsbad Premium Outlets where we did a little bit of shopping. I spent more on getting my family gifts than myself, lol. I'm really not trying to buy clothes or whatever to have an incentive to lose a few more pounds. I ended …
