Isabel: The Final WOD

The last time I did the Isabel WOD was on September 20, 2012.
Thursday, December 20, 2012
A: 20 minutes to find a 1 RM Snatch
B: "Isabel" Rx: 135/95
30 Snatches for time
Results A: If I remember correctly, I PRed recently on my snatches at 100 lb. Yesterday, Coach D was pushing me and I hit a new PR: 105 lbs. He thought I could do more, so I attempted 110 lbs. I failed this attempt 3 times. But you know what, I wouldn't give up, and he didn't either. So I FUCKING NAILED IT! My overhead squat is at 135 lbs, so I should be able to snatch that. Just need to practice my technique.
Results B: In September, I finished at 5:34 at 65 lbs. Last night, I finished at 3:44 at 75 lbs! Definitely an improvement.
I hauled ass out of the advanced class to get home and shower. Why? No, not cuz "the end of the world" and shit... but because it was my parents' 37th anniversary.
My brother and I took them to dinner at Lawry's in Beverly Hills. And I got to drive my dad's car home. That was a treat.
So even if the world ended today, I'm happy :)


Popular posts from this blog about that comfort zone

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.
