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, so we decided to go to Whole Foods and The Counter... except I didn't want The Counter. We ended up at Sammy's Wood Fired Grill and had some of these yummy duck tacos!
 
 
After all the grocery shopping, mall shopping, I finally headed out to Dan's where he took me to Target to get... Breaking Dawn Part 2! He bought my gas too.... totally spoiled me :)
 
 
So I've had quite a busy weekend, and I can't wait to have a chill weekend soon. I don't know how I keep getting busy, lol.

Warm up: 200 rope turns and Ero warm up
 
A: Power Snatch 7 x 1
 
B: 5 RFT
50 foot overhead lunge 45/25
5 wall walks
10 power snatches 115/75
 
Results A: I attempted to hit a new PR at 115 lb and failed. So my current PR is still at 110 lb. Coach A was telling me to bring the bar to my hips because I'm just kind of looping it. I kept practicing but I couldn't nail it yesterday.
 
Results B: Cut off at 20 minutes, I finished at 19:13 Rx! The wall walks were a killer. I could have gotten closer to the wall, but with my hand being handicapped right now, I got as close as I could. Coach Andrew and Coach Ben kept pushing me and pushing me. I mean with all my grunting and I had better finish!
 
After that, Nancy and I went to the beach to put in a little run. I couldn't hang. I was completely dunzo from the WOD. We then proceeded to have a healthy-protein-packed salad from Stacked.
 
Today? I think it'll be my rest day.
 
CrossFit Open? Yes. I'm doing it. We'll see how this goes! Cuz after all, it's just for fun!!

...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.
