Slept like a baby.

If you read my post yesterday, I made the mistake of partying on a Monday night. Yesterday, all day at work I was tired and cranky and just not feeling well. I ended up having a tuna salad from Eatalian. It was yummy! Although... I did discover that I'm allergic to cucumbers. So I had to take Benadryl. By 2:30, I was nearly on the verge of passing out on my desk. My homie, Michael, is one of the people I like to CrossFit with, and he was encouraging me to go, but I just FELT. LIKE. COMPLETE. SHIT. So, I come home at 4, text him to call me at 5:50 so I can go. I napped like a hardcore bamf. Woke up with acid reflux. He calls at 5:57 and I scurry to get myself together and was on my way.

The hardest part is getting there, fo sho.

Warm Up: 200 rope turns and stretching

A: Back Squat with 2 minute rest between sets
1 set x 10 reps @ 60%
1 x 8 @ 65%
1 x 6 @ 70%
1 x 4 @ 75%

B: 3 rounds for max reps
1 min max effort shoulder press 95# men/65# women
Rest 1 min
1 min max effort strict pull up
Rest 1 min
1 min max effort push press 95/65
Rest 1 min
1 min max kipping pull up

Results A: I was instructed to just pick a weight that I think I can do for 10 reps and add on as I go. I ended up doing 65-75-85-110. I jumped from 85 to 110 because Coach D was observing whilst on my 1x6 and said I could do more. So I did more and had to push it. While I was on my final squat (4/4), it was freaking challenging trying to push myself up. But what really got me going... the people around me were cheering me on! Needless to say, I felt good pushing myself and having an awesome support system. Steven (my infamous brother) thought I did a good job too when I showed him my results. I can't wait to do better. Seriously.

Results B: I set my bar to 55 lbs ...
Round 1: 12 shoulder presses - 10 pull ups (I scaled down and tried using the band to help lift myself up) - 17 push presses - 8 pull ups (still used the band)
Round 2: 8 SP - 10 pull ups (I scaled down using the band again) - 16 PP - 9 pull ups (I used a box this time)
Round 3: 9 - 11 - 14 - 12

I'm really proud of myself for round 3 because I did 1 more shoulder press than round 2. I really enjoyed this workout, and I seriously cannot wait until I can do a pull up without scaling down or whatever.

One of my good friends, Nancy, hit me up and we ended up having dinner at BJ's. Again, another reason to be proud of yesterday... I didn't eat shit food! Hooray for veggies and chicken!

I'm glad I worked out yesterday. I felt SO much better than I did when I got home from work. I'm thinking of upgrading my contract to 4x a week instead of 3x.

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.
