Nancy and I got there early and some of the guys were messing around doing hand stand walks and head stands. So, Coach D invited me to try. I used to do handstands when I was younger and I guess I have awesome muscle memory because I did it! I have a bump on my head though from doing headstands without a mat. Woops. Hooray for flexibility!

Warm Up: 1k run and Ero warm up

EMOTM 10min cap
5 burpees then
max effort thrusters for remaining min

Results: I did it at 65 lbs and it was SO hard. I started off strong... doing about 15 thrusters, then it went down to like 7, then 5, and then 3-4. Talk about one freaking bitch of a WOD!

I was going to WOD yesterday but the WOD was a longer variation of Saturday's work out. Sooo, I decided to stay home, hang out with mom and went shopping, and baked some paleo friendly cookies and caught up on some shows :)

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.
