I like to throw bars, not punches.

Warm up: 1k row and stretch

I was forever alone again today.

A: 3 rounds max reps
Hand stand push ups
Strict pull ups

B: For time
9 thrusters 135/95
50 double unders
7 thrusters
50 du
5 thrusters
50 du

Results A: I haven't done a HSPU yet, so Coach D had me do a handstand until I can't anymore and did 5 reps of negative pull ups. After my three rounds, he had me slowly lower myself down whilst in handstand position. I was too scared to go down to one ab mat, so I stacked another and was able to do that, lol.

Results B: 7:36 at 65 lbs with 100 single unders with some double unders thrown in there. I was supposed to do 300 single turns but since I've been feeling sickly lately, Coach D had me do 100 single turns with double unders attempts

I'm enjoying my solo work outs. It helps me focus. I was super upset yesterday and while I was doing thrusters, I ended up throwing the bar down when I was done. Good thing no one was around, lol.

I gathered the courage to show my coach my current progress picture. Embarrassing. But on the flip side, he did say that he would like me to take another picture (maybe not with that much skin showing) in 3 months and perhaps write my own crossfit success story to be published on my gym's website. I think I have a lot to say, lol.

Still feeling shitty, but it's Friday. I'm going to try to WOD right after work so I can go see Nancy and her sister WOD at 7.

I hope I finally recover this weekend.

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.
