Warm up: 1k run and ero warm up

Beginners A: Overhead Squat 5 x 3

Advanced A: Overhead Squat 7 x 1

Beginners B: "Jeremy"
15-12-9 Reps
Overhead Squat

Advanced B: "Jeremy"
Overhead Squat 95/65

Results A:  I did my WOD a little differently yesterday. Instead of doing 5 x 3 or 7 x 1, Coach D wanted me to push harder to try to find my 1 rep max.
55-65-75- 95 x 3 - 115
At 115, I was having trouble stabilizing. My first attempt, Coach D scared me (I don't know, I was out of it yesterday) and wanted to adjust my hand placement. I failed the first attempt. During the second attempt, I checked everything -- my feet, the placement of the bar on my back, my hands (making sure they're even on both sides). Suddenly, I heard silence. I turned around to look at what's going on, and people are staring. The only thing I thought to say was, "omg you all are judging me." LOL, I'm a wee tod. Anyhoo, I pushed it over my head, and tried to push my arms and pull the bar apart to stabilize. I lack shoulder strength and flexibility. But! I did get it the overhead squat! Needless to say with all the wiggling and whatnot, I dropped the bar and couldn't re-rack. At least I got that PR!

Results B: I went ahead and did the Advanced met-con. When I was setting up for it, I passed by Coach D and thanked him for pushing me. I think I underestimate myself especially when I'm feeling weak. I did the WOD at 65 lbs as per Coach D's suggestion. My time was 6:54 Rx (prescribed). During the WOD, I felt my heels go up, thus making me move forward. And my lack of shoulder strength deterred me from going unbroken. But having the coaches around keeping an eye and encouraging me helped a lot. By the end of the WOD, I went outside and just flopped on my back.

As a bonus, Coach P had us do 100 abmat sit ups. And my dear friend, Cecilia, go the worst calf cramp of life. Only her, during situps. LOL. She's good though. She's progressing really well. Proud of that ho <3

My body is so sore this week.  Last night, I decided to practice hand stand push ups, and while I grabbed the abmat at home, I ended up getting the worst cramp on my side. I still practiced. I landed on my head hard, yeah. Bad. LOL. But I kipped up a little to help and I got it!

Tonight's WOD is going to kick my ass.

BTW, I almost died yesterday. My dumbass decided to drink 4 capsules of fish oil, just because they were stuck together. So I swallowed it. It got stuck, and I got scared. I tried to flex open my throat to see if I can breathe, and when I did, I pounded my water so fast and hard it finally cleared my throat. That was scary. Phlegm arised, cold sweats happened... NO BUENO.

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.
