All Negative.

Monday, September 24, 2012

Warm up: 200 rope turns and Ero warm up (this is the first time I put my gym's name publicly guys! lol)

Beginner A: Front Squat 5 x 3

Advanced A: 15 minutes of practicing hand stands (on wall, walking, standing, etc)

Beginner B: 21-15-9
Front Squat (135/95)
Pull Ups
Hand Release Push ups

Advanced B: 21-15-9
Front Squat
Strict Pull Ups
Hand Stand Push Ups

I went to the beginner's class... I think I should start going to the All Levels class soon.

Results A: We had to pair up...
Coach D saw that I was doing lower weight to match my partner (as you can see with my results that I had a big jump in weight), but he told me that he wants me to do my 1 RM 3 times. So I did, lol. Coach D thinks I can front squat over 200 lbs. We shall see...

Results B: 10:30
I did front squats at 85#, I think I could have done 95# but the strengthening portion of the WOD really took a lot out of me. I did negative pull ups and standard hand release push ups! I'm so proud of myself because I did ALL negatives the whole time AND the guy style push ups. I wasn't able to do this 3 months ago.

I'm really stoked about the progress I'm making. Like I said yesterday, I need to work on my cardio so I can kill these met-cons.

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.
