RANT: Dear Friend, Good Luck to You.

I hardly go on a rant, but you know when you just need to write or type it out and re-read it later? Yeah. I think that's what I need to do. Sorry for the negative vibes!

Dear Friend, How are you? I hope all is well. I haven't heard from you in quite a while. We got in touch recently and it brought all the good memories back. We seldom talk, but when we do, it's always great knowing how well you're doing. I know you're far away and you're living life, I am very happy for you. You've always held me close to you, but now at this point in your life, do you have any slightest idea what's been going on as of late? I've always been big on effort, and I feel you haven't kept up your side of this friendship. I would rather you refer to me as a "friend" or "old friend" because your lack of efforts and given our history, makes us just that. You have made it clear exactly where I stand and I refuse to be the one to always initiate and…

CrossFit Open 13.3

I know I skipped my results on the 13.2 WOD. I didn't do well and it pissed me off, lol. I only did 5 rounds + 8 deadlifts or something. I don't even remember. I don't want to. LOL. Anyways, Friday, March 22, 2013... CrossFit Open 13.3 - As many reps as possible in 12 minutes 150 wall balls (20/14) 90 double unders 30 muscle ups No way in hell I was going to complete all of that, lol. I did complete the wall balls in under 9 minutes. I'm not good with double unders so it took me a while to complete 39 lol. I was kind of mad that I didn't do 4-5 in a row so I practiced after the WOD. One of the girls there, Mia, was helping me with my form by keeping my hands closer to my body, jumping up right away instead of sitting on my heels too long, and looking forward. After many failed attempts, I finally did it and I got a new PR at 17 double unders in a row! I was so happy I jumped up and down and fell into the wall. Saturday, March 23, 2013 I'd like to call Saturda…

Dairy... WHY?

So, I've officially re-incorporated dairy back into my diet, and you know what... IT SUCKS. I've been breaking out on my chest, and I gained weight so fast. This is ridiculous.

My body really liked being all meat/veggies/fruits/nuts... It's only been 2 weeks and I've been performing bad, I'm sluggish, and I'm not sleeping well.

I didn't realize how bad dairy and some carbs would affect me this much.

I guess it's time to change my 80% paleo lifestyle to 98% (I like Coldstones, ok?!)

Oh, I also noticed I'm not driven to keep updating. Why? I feel lazier, and it sucks. So hopefully the next couple weeks will be better...

But tonight... CrossFit Open 13.2.

Can't wait.

CrossFit Games Open 13.1

Taken directly off the CrossFit Games website... at Ero, we had this scheduled on Friday, March 8, 2013. Our warm up included 200 rope turns, and to prep for this, we practiced our snatches.

WOMEN - includes Masters Women up to 54 years old Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 17 minutes of:
40 Burpees
45 pound Snatch, 30 reps
30 Burpees
75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
20 Burpees
100 pound Snatch, 30 reps
10 burpees
120 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible

I ended up doing 142 reps at the prescribed weight. I think if I had eaten better during the week and TOM was not in town, I would have had more energy to do more. Although I had all day to mentally prepare for it.

So, with all the scores submitted, I am 1002nd! LOL. I just need to remember to push myself and not take this too seriously. It's just an idea of how live competition would be.

Speaking of, who's going to NLI at CSULB in April?!

Slow Progress is Progress.

How are you all doing? I'm still recovering from the flu/cold I had last week. All I have left now is a light cough, which is bad right when I first get up in the morning. Almost there! Being off for a week from WODing really took a toll on me. Feeling weak and like I'm not doing anything probably made me feel worse. But, I guess I just really needed the rest. On Saturday night, Nancy and I headed out to Mai Tai out in Long Beach for a fellow crossfitter's birthday. Not many pictures were taken that night, but here's my outfit anyway. I need color in my life apparently (even my brother told me) so on Sunday, I hung out with Nancy and Ana and we headed to the mall and I picked myself up a couple of new bright pieces. I'll upload a pic whenever I decide to wear it, lol. Steven and I were supposed to wake up early on Sunday to go get some pancakes from Original Pancake House, which is our usual Sunday routine every couple weeks or so. We didn't wake up on time, …
